I found a picture of somewhere in Nova Scotia( I think) and I used that as a rough reference for this pic. used Painter 8 (Which I just got today!! :D) and used mostly the Oil tools. Took like 30 minutes or so. Was done very quickly with an emphasis on gesture. Not going for realistic/detailed work here. Just very rough art work. That's a person standing in the water by the way.

WOW SKETCH NUMBER 72 already! man, I think I stopped in sketch 30 or something,.. shame on me, but school is closed and I have no programs here that I can work on, so until Aug 30 I will still have to just come here and stare at everyones work in awe... it amazes me how much the "sketches" have improved... GREAT WORK EVERYONE.... I think I will just have to do my sketches pen and paper, and look at them alone here at home, But soon I am getting my Mac power book so I will be able to sketch anywhere anytime, and I wont have an excuse.

Supervlieg: My pic is along the same lines as your old picture ( isnt it. (yours more masterfully executed.) :cry:
That wasnt intentional. I just couldnt think of anything else for this topic. Kinda lame / unoriginal for this topic but... :shrug:

Like your new avatar BTW.

I didnt think it was intentional, I guess we have the same idea about monsters under the bed :)
I liked the sketch anyhoo, so no worries.
