Shot drumwhore, great atmosphere!


PS: 'shot' means good just in case that's unclear :) Don't know whether that's universal slang or just specific to NZ...

10 October 2004, 03:54 AM
Vitriolic, must be a NZ thing, but I like it!

Shot, Drumwhore! Fantastic work!

10 October 2004, 04:33 AM
This daily sketch is addictive.
Good gracious! Drumwhore that's amazing! Love the atmosphere!

Matsuru, neat idea! Love the threatening angle!
Painter 7, near 3 hours... It's still acceptable as a sketch right? o_O;
The idea of an invisible object having it's shadow casted coming out from an old house came across my mind the moment I saw this title and relating it to something spooky.

1 Hour in photoshop with some reference.

The last few topics have been great. It's been fun trying to do one of these each day. Hats off to you guys who don't miss a single day.

Hammy and Drumwhore, awesome stuff. I love how you guys can get so much mood across through your lighting. Great sketches.

Kvaalen haha~! the contrast is cool~!

Cyanid wah~! 20minutes~! the minimum details make this piece looks neat.

Drumwhore WOW~!!! this is really superb. nice vision u have there~! I just love the atmosphere and the scale of the landscape. the little old house looks lonely.

Hammy_W wooo....u are good. 3 hours to produce such finish quality. nice~! the shaodw thingy is cool~! btw, i get ur msg on the other thread. and u are malaysian~! strangely, i have this feeling that u have something to do with TOA also. cheers~!

Thanks Novacaine! :D Love your gothic architecture study! Although the details are rough but it everything is just there!

Matsuru, I saw that post! Sorry I didn't reply there since I wasn't so sure if I want to flood around so much. :s And yeah, I'm a student from TOA. :D

Vitriolic, Awesome idea! I love the texturing and the whole concept of it. Definetely striked the theme 'This Old House' :D

Cyanid, Gosh, for 20 minutes that was something!

10 October 2004, 12:19 PM
Matsuru: Cool angle, perpective is indeed a little off but that doesn't matter. I like the statues.

Kvaalen: I like the light hitting the door.

Cyanid: You did that in 20 min? Wow.

Drumwhore: Good to have you back. Excellent work. 45 min? :eek: Shot man :)

Hammy_W: Cool. I like the distorted view. Great composition, and I dig the ghostshadow on the floor.

Hey, just one page...
But all drawings are winners in my book, good god, great job!

10 October 2004, 02:21 PM
buzzz3d, Thanks! :D I love yours too! Of how everything seems so quiet and peaceful, with the colour mood and also the little distance between the isolated tree and the house kind of made it felt kind lonesome. :)

Thanks Art2!

Great image Goro.
Funny to see how most of the time you end up in the warm color-range and I always seem to go towards the blueish colors :) (must be a monkey<->owl-thing)
