Had to make a fast one. I'm guessing 7-15 min. Photoshop and Mouse.

Have a nice weekend! See ya!

Despite my best efforts to close myself off from the world, my friends managed to drag me out for a couple of days so I missed the last two sketches. Oh well here's todays

Painter - Wacom - 1.5 hours

09 September 2004, 06:45 PM
Andrewley, I love it... but what is it? A train? I guess it doesn't matter =p.

Here's mine: Just a few minutes/PS7/Wacom.

09 September 2004, 07:16 PM
Andrewley you are making it so hard to post "just a sketch" for the rest of us...
exellent work :beer:

BTW this is Daily Sketch 97... so its T - 3 to Daily Sketch 100. What is it about rounded up numbers like 100 and 1000! I would blame the typical "100th customer-gets-prize" type of publicity.

09 September 2004, 08:05 PM
probably about 30min / photoshot / wacom
this really didnt turn out how I hoped it would. Wanted to add more toys in the background and a pair of little feet but I lost interest.

Smashed, broken and forgotten

andrewley - that is beautiful. :eek: great depth and contrast. good job.

09 September 2004, 09:03 PM
Smashed, broken and forgotten.

Nice entries so far!

09 September 2004, 10:56 PM

Andrewley (I think that's a broken freighter, stranded on Tatooin...), Andy great job.

09 September 2004, 12:03 AM

Here's another one. 00:30/Painter Classic/Wacom.

This ship will soon be smashed, broken.... and forgotten.

Even though there isn't many yet, these are all great sketches, guys =D.
I really want to comment on everyone's right now, but it's 2:30am, and I've been running on empty all day. So tired... so I'll make my remarks tomorrow.

Heh, am I the only one who feels like they haven't really improved since starting the sketches? (I think this is my 35-40th). I wish I would... I'm rarely satisfied with what I post O = ).

09 September 2004, 08:47 AM
...well, I had one and this is a picture I wanted to paint for a long time... :argh:
about 20min - openCanvas1.1
add 20min - Photoshop (thought to give some more size and situation relations)

40min together

09 September 2004, 09:48 AM
andrewley, please man tell me about that pic.. thats ..awe inspiring.. just incredible man..

09 September 2004, 10:58 AM
btw heres mine.. as im only using a mouse, and my lack of artistic skill is well.. just that. lacking.. lol this is all i was able to come up with.. i had wanted to do the titanic underwater and all that good stuff.. but then i started thinking death, and cemetary and i ended up with a half baked broken tombstone, that with the right artist could have looked a hella lot better... but hey

umm took me like an hour or less and did it in photoshop.. like i said, all with the mouse.. and too much blur.. lol

09 September 2004, 12:50 PM
Great stuff so far!

This piece is an old abandoned futuristic bus.

Just a little about me (I just realized I never introduced myself :eek: )I'd never even drawn a stick man before I saw this thread. But The work here inspired me to buy a wacom and start learning, so that's exactly what I've been doing! Big shout out to everyone that's a part of this great community!!!

This one was again Gimp 2.0.2 with a wacom.

bout 10 minutes.



09 September 2004, 04:24 PM
ps and wacom, one hr. 20 min, .5 c. coffee. i used a reference for the composition, but it's not a copy--

09 September 2004, 10:46 PM

about an hour, painter

09 September 2004, 08:56 AM
Thanks for the comments guys.

Most of you wanted to know what the wreckage was of, but I don't like to give everything away to the viewer - this way your imagination has to fill in a few of the blanks and ( I think ) makes the image more enjoyable.

Plus I like the different interpretations you guys came up with.

Good stuff from people again today - especially Digital_Bobert and Taron333

09 September 2004, 11:31 AM mins photoshop

Thanks for the comments....I don't like to give everything away to the viewer - this way your imagination has to fill in a few of the blanks and ( I think ) makes the image more enjoyable.

Well, thanx, first of all, Andrewley! I appreciate your kudos. However, I really don't mean to step on your toes, but looking at most of the images from you that I'm aware of, I'm left to assume that there's a photographic or other direct reference for a lot of them? This one is just so very vague but imaginable, even recognizable, that it truely becomes a compelling challenge to find out where you took that from. HAhaha....hahaha....I mean that in a good way. Well, I dare to say that it is obviously a steam driven train that runs through what looks like powerlines across the country in the back. It has the charisma of what could be a classic train photography?!
C' it! Just a tiny version of a thumbnail...

Btw, I would be destroyed and broken and finished if you told me the last image at "Damned if you do, Damned if you don't" is not a completely free illustration of yours. Don't tell me there was any reference for it? Because I began to believe that you have accumulated a great sense for wacky shapes by now and you do not require reference anymore!?
I would go as far to say I think I believe more in you than you believe in you. But that might be going to far. ;)

HOWEVER, Rock on! :buttrock:

09 September 2004, 04:17 PM
lol - ok Taron you have forced me to show my hand :) Your right I didn't use reference for the "Damned if you do" pic (dont know where I could get ref for that one :) )

For these pics I quickly define the profile of the object with a solid colour then hint at the form with shading and highlights.

However I'm afraid you're wrong about this one dude :) No reference whatsoever was used. The wreckage is in fact supposed to be a large spacecraft. The two large cylinders are the engines at the rear of the ship (I was thinking of the ships in the game Homeworld at the time)

To me it looks nothing like a train - one of the previous posters came close saying it was a frieghter crashed on Tatooine :)

In the future I will let you guys know which images have used reference material.

My recent posts that used reference were the monkey one, the statue one and the G.W. Bush portrait

09 September 2004, 05:39 PM
Beautiful, Andrewley! I'm very happy about that! I do not think you need any reference anymore anyway. For some people I understand when they use it to learn, it may very well be helpful. I sometimes think I should have done that at some point to. That's why I tried it with this one thing from of the decaying blonde (posted it on speed-paintsHERE ( ), but this kind of stuff shouldn't be posted as a self-expression, but as a study somewhere else than under daily sketches, I think...imho.

So, great job, see, I am proud of Ya'! patronizing whatsoever, just in case you think that, I really enjoy being in a crowd with you, Supervlieg, Rasdasa, meta_Nerd, r0mer0, Drumwhore, (where the HECK is GORO?!? Time for him to come back) and all the other crazy artists's a big pleasure for me! And the more I discover all your art and ingenuity and simply brutally strong creativity, the more I'm full of happiness! I'm serious! It means a lot to me! Should have come a lot early into this forum! But yeah...any time was a perfect time! :deal: :thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 05:55 PM
WOW :eek: Very kind words - cheers bud

09 September 2004, 06:12 PM
WOW :eek: ...- cheers bud

pencil, 45 minutes...
I'm not very good at expressing emotion yet, but I tried. :D
