15mins flash

Goul- awesome water ambiance. nice painting on the shark.

Salamander Coral - awesome idea, awesome execution.

augustus - the bloody hand has a nice feel, but the water seems really happy and calm. provides a nice contrast.

You know, I realized that WWII helmets and guns have infinite uses in these competitions.

freakin Amazing, that is the funniest and best excecuted piece I've seen in weeks. Perfect, original, Everything.....Congratulations. Keep 'em' comming.


09 September 2004, 02:07 AM
alice- great illustration!

Salamander Coral- i laughed my ass off.

09 September 2004, 02:14 AM
I'm so freaky tired and I got no brain at the moment! I wanted to get involved with this sketch, but.. I'm way too tired. >_< No ideas.. no originality, nothing. *sighs* I'm bounced to lose anyways cuz SalamanderCoral has the best idea!!! I really looooove it!

.... Not that I want to win the contest... as it's not a contest, but it's just that I want to improvise myself. Know what I'm saying? :)

To everybody else: Keep it up! ;)

Just saw this forum because of the front page. Am I allowed to post this after 12 pst? I 'm home late working it'd be a nice break to use an hour or so to do this but i'm just geting started and I notice it says the topic is for today only.

09 September 2004, 08:21 AM
Holly shoot salamader, that's outrageously funny!! !!!

I don't have the time to do one so I submit exhibit A, a shark I did for a long gone daily sketch.

And in the imortal words of Police Chief Martin Brody in Jaws..."we need a bigger boat"

09 September 2004, 09:58 AM
SalamanderCoral --> As you've heard, your pic is amazing!!!

Steve V --> Really like the lines on your pic...

Meta_nerd --> You first one is great!! Good idea!!

If I can find the time, I might do one...

09 September 2004, 10:09 AM
HAHAHA...that's awesome, Chris! Excellent....Damn...I should have....I thought of the same thing a while ago...forgot which topic that was...but that sharkbite! (that's what I'm talking about!)

Here's my bull...this is about 4min with the commercial openCanvas3.05e and about 2min with photoshop.... so about 6's say 7

09 September 2004, 11:33 AM
thank you very much guys... it's a great honour to get so much compliments...
but you know, how the wind blows: every dog has his day....:):):)

so long and with kind regards

09 September 2004, 01:01 PM
10 min pencil/paper, 1h photoshop

great entries today,
malcolmvexxed, I think that the deadline is when Roberto posts the next topic (24h more or less), but there are not much rules here, you can post whenever you want, even if the next topic has been already posted.

09 September 2004, 02:17 PM
meta_Nerd: Your's first one just killed me! The sawblade edges of the tooth makes a nice detail I'd probably never think of. NICE!
SalamanderCoral: amazing one! I'm still rolling on the floor. Which part is made in Painter and which in Phsp if I my ask?
taron333: I love the style...and the jaWWWWs :)

09 September 2004, 03:55 PM
Salamander Coral > Lol ...Great work , nothing to crits for me :D
Meta_nerd> :D I love the first one ,good idea !
SteveV> Nice sketch , but the amount of bublles disturb me a bit

09 September 2004, 04:49 PM
Thank you very much, Lopoly.
Which part is made in Painter and which in Phsp if I my ask? Of course you may ask: I blocked out the basic colours in photoshop, then switched to painter and blended them. at last i used ps to add details like highlights (e.g. on the water surface), shadows and the bubbles... actually you could do everything in painter, but i prefer to do the subtle work in ps. photoshop gives me the feeling, that i have more control over the details and the overall impression and i like the smooth handling of it's default brushes...:)

with kind regards
yous Salamander

hey all,

I've been meaning to get back into drawing, haven't really done any since last year (mostly 3d bologne) anywho, just thought I'd jump on this boat.

here's my image

photoshop cs
wacom tablet
45 mins

also just wanted to say that alot of the images I've seen come out of these have been pretty amazing, props to all who have one thus far, I hope one day I will be able to achieve the same feats

be ha

09 September 2004, 11:53 PM
Wacom / painter 8 / 5 minutes for sketch and 10 minutes for paint.

09 September 2004, 12:14 AM
Hi fellow , great work, funny idea , and amazing drawing speed :eek :applause:

09 September 2004, 02:38 AM
Ok, it's more of a bird, but I was thinking of those shark mouths painted on the WWII fighters and well that made me want to do a non-aquatic shark attack. I hope that's cool

45-50 minutes/photoshop/wacom

09 September 2004, 04:14 AM
I decided I wanted to mess with this one in a different way so I did another version. I left the "fin" near the back of the cockpit so that it would still be shark like. I saw that multiple posts were allowed so I hope this is ok.

1 Hour/ Photoshop/Wacom

09 September 2004, 04:16 AM
So the sketch started out to be of sharks, but they kind of ended up looking like zombified fish...
This was intended to be my first post to CGTalk, so I figured I'd just go ahead and still post it anyways...
Ooops, sorry, almost forgot:
Pencil, Wacom, Photoshop
about 35 min.

kind regards

Germans are sick ;) hehe

nice one :D

09 September 2004, 03:10 PM

sharks are amazing arnt they, i did another drawing (not this one) of a great white with the mouth open, i might go back to that in a minute, i think there needs to be more shading under the sharks fin here on the water.

80 minutes, 2B pencil

5 minutes photoshop

09 September 2004, 03:56 PM
20-25 minutes photoshop....

09 September 2004, 12:02 AM
About an hour Wacom/Painter some reference

Finally got some time for this one. I was going for a dramatic fight with the diver letting the shark have it with the spear gun, only question is does the other one go for the diver or the shark next :D Let me know what you think wasn't sure how many bubbles a spear guns lets off, if any? Or if it's too dark?

Brötje - really nice style & great expression
el paso - looks cool, needs more teeth maybe ;)
Taron333 - I like the thick & thin brush strokes, nice change of style
SalamanderCoral - haha great
augustus - I like the softness of colour on this one


10 October 2004, 07:27 AM
When it comes to shark...ME!(Who knows?...)
I painted my favorite Mako Shark.
I used wacom+PS and spent 1.5hours for painting.
Many thanks to Yuuichi Mizoi for the ref picture.
