View Full Version : Show your technique (Drawing toy)

10 October 2004, 11:50 PM
I recall seeing this a while back on cgtalk, but I thought I'd bring it up again in relation to the daily sketch group.

Discovered this amazing thread over at

It's a flash program that allows you to record the way you sketch for others to see:

I was just wondering if there should be a sticky for this so we can post up our "mad skills" and see how these amazing speed techniques are being achieved. Obviously it's not robust, like openCanvas, but it's still a good display of form and technique.

EDIT: Here's a new version of the sketcher. Thanks chlywly!

10 October 2004, 11:56 PM
Here's an example of what I mean!
(excuse the crappiness!)


10 October 2004, 11:59 PM
Very cool, erilaz. I've been playing with it here at work. Very addicting as mentioned at conceptart. Uh oh. Here comes the boss!

10 October 2004, 01:05 AM
By the way, if you're wondering how it works, you have a set amount of ink (by meter at the top).
You send it to your own email address in order to get the link to post your stuff up.

10 October 2004, 01:18 AM
i did try it out, but... haven't gotten any emails yet for it. :( hotmail email can be sloooooow! >_<

10 October 2004, 03:27 AM
Once I get use to it I can waste a lot of time. Another thing for my girl to hate me for.
Thanks for the link.

10 October 2004, 05:24 AM
Yep, seen that one.

Give openCanvas1.1. a try. you get the same recording abilities: only longer, brushes, layers... and 4 people can draw at one time over the internet/network. Takes a bit of getting used to, Good Luck.

In most of my old posts, I have presented the wpe file link. Go back and check them out. I know a few others have also posted their's too.

Have fun

if you rar them, the size is about half.

As far as where to get it, I got it from a friend quite a while ago. I am sure it is still out there somewhere remember version 1.1 I have heard the new one isn't as usefull (don't know, havn't tried it $$$).

10 October 2004, 05:33 AM
Yeah, I know about openCanvas (in fact I mentioned it at the start of the thread!:p). What I'm saying is, this shows a quick sketcher without having to go downloading/uploading files.

Open Canvas is a great tool, and fantastic for learning sketching. What I'm trying to put across here is just little doodles that show off how people draw quickly and concisely. Open Canvas is great for that as well as showing off shading and paint skills.

Maybe we could do BOTH in here! openCanvas AND the flash sketcher, as a free-for-all open session.

10 October 2004, 07:09 AM
Obviously it's not robust, like openCanvas, but it's still a good display of form and technique.Whoops, I guess I should read a little more closely. Didn't mean to repeat anything, just wanted to share with the group.


10 October 2004, 11:05 AM
Painter has had that function for years, at least since version 3.

10 October 2004, 01:32 PM
I think that both this Flash tool and OpenCanvas/Painter are both powerful leanring tools to be shared. The benefit of OC and Painter is that you can get much more in-depth and see detailed rendering techniques. But the nice thing about the Flash program is that everyone is forced to use exactly the same ammount of ink. You can practice capturing your sketch in as little time and strokes as possible (and see how others do it)- which is great for thumbnails and gestures (which is what most finished drawings start out as)

And, like erilaz said, this Flash program can be used by anyone who has a Flash-enabled browser without installing/downloading anything.


10 October 2004, 07:53 PM
Really cool!

It isn't as practicle as a normal paint program, but good for learning.
I forgot about the ink and ran out... should have stopped earlier :shrug:

Can't wait to see what the real pros here will come up with! :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 08:01 PM
hehe, funny stuff.
just gave a try at it:

10 October 2004, 08:36 PM
Quite addictive....

the boss came in so I had to rush this one.. LOL

here's mine (

10 October 2004, 12:18 AM
I needed several tries to get used to the little flash app.
Here's ( my lil sketch.


10 October 2004, 12:50 AM
Great work people! It's true the opencanvas and painter methods are even more useful for learning, so feel free to upload your work from them too!

But for now, sketch on! :D

(Thanks for the sticky, by the way)

10 October 2004, 06:05 AM
The end says it all...:


10 October 2004, 08:29 AM
It brings out the artist in me...

10 October 2004, 10:35 AM
this share your technique idea is great but I really don't see how that flash thingy can be helpful in that.. It's fun for 30 secs but well.. I'm preferring OC here.

However sharing the OC wpe files and other techniques is a great idea! So bring them on :D

10 October 2004, 04:19 AM
Any sharable technique is good! Bring it ooooon!:D

10 October 2004, 09:42 AM
do you teach?

10 October 2004, 10:40 AM
This is a pretty cool little site. I had to have a go at it.

I think that now works well. Take a look

11 November 2004, 12:09 AM
Geez, I'm finally able to draw circle-looking circles and there's a new version? Oh well, here's mine from the old version:

Hey, that car reminds me of those bouncy cars you see in rap videos :)

click me (

11 November 2004, 03:26 AM
Wow art2... you really sketch well! Not sure about those red streaks at the end (blur lines or blood?:D), but DAMN!

I wouldn't even bother whiting out those lines either, it looks good regardless!

11 November 2004, 10:56 AM
Thanks erilaz, haha, I still got ink left... so I added the red :D

none of these links work for me... it just goes to the ge imagination launch page.. and i'm left with a pen to draw with... i cannot see your drawings..? :(

12 December 2004, 03:50 AM
none of these links work for me... it just goes to the ge imagination launch page.. and i'm left with a pen to draw with... i cannot see your drawings..? :(
That's odd... it should launch a secondary page that loads the data. Maybe you have an overzealous pop-up blocker?

12 December 2004, 10:28 AM
hey it works fine... check here (

12 December 2004, 07:03 PM
Yep - some of these links are funky...the only ones that I can see the sketch for lately is Art2, all the others It loads a demo screen and goes right into a new drawing page for me to draw. It doesn't playback their sketch for folks like kirbz and LuisNCT :(

12 December 2004, 10:29 PM
Then maybe it's because they use the old version of the app.
Maybe it's no longer supported.

12 December 2004, 04:41 AM

here's my try at it.. sucks big time and its done with a crappy mouse that gets stuck every now and then.. :(
wee! (

12 December 2004, 12:31 AM
Arghh.. I don't like the lack of a mousepad..
Heres my try ( at that gizmo, rather cool thingie.

Okaly dokaly, here ( it is.
I just had an urge to sew a man on his head when i saw that sketch.

12 December 2004, 01:14 AM
Hey eug3n, that's cool man :)

Maybe others could add a little character of their own too.
I noticed that my drawing lost a few lines, that's because I made that with the old version I guess...

here's a little sketch ( of a busdriver... all he needs now are passengers...
common guys fill up the bus :) (and leave some space for others too)

12 December 2004, 01:51 AM
Bwahaa! I made another one.
It's called "Mouse hater in hell ("

And I added a passenger to Art2's work.
Theres still ink for atleast 1 more passenger.
Okay, it's working now :) Click me (!

12 December 2004, 09:55 AM
That's one freaky mousehater man :eek:

Heehee, one passenger... but the link doesn't work :(
When the ink runs out can, others still add drawings? I wonder if that will erase the other drawings...

12 December 2004, 02:23 PM
Very funny eug3n
Yep next stop monsterville... :)

12 December 2004, 02:49 PM
Another passenger (, in the freak bus with the Headless Knight on the wheel (after Tim Burtonīs film this is the only job he could get)

Test (***&

12 December 2004, 10:29 PM
Why won't this imagination-cubed site work for me anymore? I click on the link that says "enter," but a blank window pops up and nothing loads.

Is anyone else having the same problem/how do you fix it? I made my Internet Security system allow pop-ups on the site, but that doesn't work ...

12 December 2004, 01:26 AM
you need to have the latest flash player installed...that would be version7
that could help? dunno

12 December 2004, 10:47 AM
Hey guys, here's another fun app (
It only runs in IE and the latest flash player tho.

Little sketch (

12 December 2004, 05:26 PM
art2, i have watched all of your drawings and are amazed at your work...every one is unique and has a great story...even with crappy tools! Im going to add on to your bus(the original though...because for somereason if i try to add on to the other add on...the bus drivers head is deleted =X)

edit: Click Here (<---thats mine...there are fairies and a devil child(isnt there always one in every bus) its not good quality...i currently have two strikes against me(a new stylis and that being my first time using that program) neways hope u enjoy...

01 January 2005, 02:51 AM
you're a butchered version of me? :D

01 January 2005, 08:57 AM
I hope you two don't mind, that I added a bit myself:

click me (

now it looks a bit more like me, only that I'm older in that picture, hopefully I will have that much hair left when Im old :D

01 January 2005, 09:16 AM
I think this thread's title is slowly turning into "Paint Over Paul's Face" haha fun!
Anyone got anything original?

01 January 2005, 10:11 AM
you're a butchered version of me? :D

I'm an older and wiser (probably with less hair) version of you :D

Tuzz you look classy in that turtleneck :D

01 January 2005, 06:27 PM
I suck at drawing :D

I really liked the bus driver one I saw a while ago, I find it amazing how some of you people draw just from your minds without a skeleton to build off of...

made in uterus: great orc! I have to agree, they are fun. I dont think you have anything to be ashamed of.... I have always enjoyed your DSG pix.

And if you think there's a lot of gnomes now, you just wait till me and Mettoolman start posting our 'Gnomish!' Comics!!! Look for it soon in the COMICS! section!

I'm kinda busy this coming weekend, so i'll get to work on it (the comic) in 3 days or so...

thanks mustard and dmage! :) i plan too, been a long time since i last post something, been without a isp for over 3 months(never got a chance to thank the dsg for the votes on my "vision of russia" sketch), and seing the big changes that happened to and all the "new" talents that emerged made me feel a bit overwhelmed, :bounce:

MrGrinch that a cool sketch!
Yours too MustardWash.

Seems like there's something wrong with the Artpadsite... can't watch any of them anymore.

03 March 2005, 05:18 PM

03 March 2005, 11:47 PM

03 March 2005, 02:26 PM
awsome piece florian!

03 March 2005, 02:34 PM
thanks. Thats was really challenging but the hair looked crappy.

Buying a Wacom was one of my best ideas ever :lightbulb

03 March 2005, 09:48 PM
This is not the drawing toy, and iīm not the one who made it, but itīs worth to take a look:

Hey Darklord, good job on the sketch.

Here's my lil doodle (

come on guys, it's fun, post more :)

heres mine***&transcript=&_lscid=

03 March 2005, 06:29 PM
Hey guys, im a half assed artist (i seem to think so) in need of life drawing or some type of traditional classes (never took em), so here's my try (i'm using a mouse by the way).

Tell me what you think! Oh and ps. im buying a graphire3 6x8 soon at the recommendation of jmboekestein (thanks for the motivation dude!). << How's that for a mouse? Composition of the beanie baby cat any good? I should have added seams! (forgot that!)

03 March 2005, 09:26 PM
Trying something different style and subject wise.
Flower (

that is very good for using a mouse PONG. Cant wait to see what you can do once you get your graphire3

03 March 2005, 08:04 AM
^ Thanks Mustardwash

Here is the SAME cat yet again, a SECOND TRY. Using mouse, probably 30 mins? Forgot!
Click HERE to view second attempt ( How are my mouse skills? Thanks for comments/crit anyone!!

Crit it!

03 March 2005, 12:41 PM
Nice sketches guys! :thumbsup:

pongball, your mouse skills look very painfull :D, nice kitty...

03 March 2005, 07:13 PM
Bah..that means it sucks work is soo bad compared to you guys...some of the work i've seen here using artpad is ingenious :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Keep posting your work guys, i want to see more! And crit mine someone please!!?

03 March 2005, 08:57 PM
pongball: I think Art2's painful comment is more of a compliment than a "you suck" comment. :D
I wouldnt have the paitence to get a good quality drawing with my mouse anymore. (at one point I used too... not anymore) :sad:
I like your latest pic better, adding the little computer screen tabs was a neat idea.

03 March 2005, 09:26 PM
pongball: I think Art2's painful comment is more of a compliment than a "you suck" comment. :D

Yup, I can't imagine doing something in artpad with a mouse! :)

03 March 2005, 12:41 AM
I am ashamed...thanks guys :) . I guess once i get a wacom and start drawing, ill get crits im looking for :D

03 March 2005, 01:40 AM

play it fast. That will take a while.
I hope you enjoy watching...

03 March 2005, 04:03 PM
Here's my first attempt at Artpad--"Moonlight". I was going for that impressionist feel using only the paint bucket. Now be gentle, this is my first painting ever...real or digital. :^) Hope you like it.

BTW, some of you guys are frickin' awesome with this thing. Loved just about every one that I saw.

03 March 2005, 02:32 PM
thanks florian

your job is very good too. :)

04 April 2005, 01:17 AM
wow, that was fun
heres something i threw together

04 April 2005, 08:42 AM
Hi Guido

That really looked like you had a lot of fun.
Full of life :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 11:46 AM
nice paintings every one.

Here's mine:

04 April 2005, 06:31 PM
amazing talents in here :)

here's mine, drawn with the mouse :( don't have a wacom...

04 April 2005, 08:28 PM

Okay, I was bored. :P However, I consider that I have improved a lot in 2 years... lol you should see my first digital painting/drawing >_< lol

04 April 2005, 02:49 PM
Well, I figure it can't really hurt anything to go ahead and post mine :)

I do a fair bit of 3D stuff, but do very, very little 2D stuff (like this) so please take that into consideration... you'll also definitely want to move the slider over to fast, or you'll get bored really quick. I don't think it turned out half bad. I call it, "So a dog walks into a bar...."

04 April 2005, 06:29 PM
Ok, here's mine...

04 April 2005, 06:52 PM

04 April 2005, 04:02 AM
Here's a couple I did in the World of Warcraft forums a month or so ago. I'd do more, but I just get angry at my lack of a tablet *grumble* Oh, and cool topic :)

04 April 2005, 03:48 PM

04 April 2005, 03:52 PM
Hey, nice app, and awesome sketches!

Here's my contribution :)

The app began to run really slow at the end, so I was kinda forced to quit :o!

04 April 2005, 04:47 PM

It just popped out of my mind =)

04 April 2005, 08:37 PM
whenever I tried to open a link I got "failed to load requested drawing.Start your own drawing instead" do you have an idea what the problem is?

06 June 2005, 03:35 PM

Yeah, you tried to open the old version...this is the new version, you can see results in the end of this thread.

07 July 2005, 02:45 AM (

here's mine!
I didnt bother to spend time on so dont expect something nice since it's so extremely boring to write, just my opinion.
However, Art2 props to you, you're good at what ya do.

07 July 2005, 06:57 AM
crejjM, thanks man. You did a great sketch! :thumbsup:

I thought this thread was dead 'n buried... :)

07 July 2005, 11:45 PM
Hehe, well.. thanks, i guess! I didn't even try, that was far from the best I can but I got so bored, since it's so extremely boring to draw, atleast I think!:> However, it was dead'n'buried but I searched for artpad art at google and clicked around and so I got here :)
Would you mind post some more sketches you've done since I really enjoyed wathcing them, I love to see other people sketches, but I hate to draw my own :) Would appreciate if you could post some:)

Thanks in advance :)

my friend just got her wisdom teeth removed. (

09 September 2005, 03:03 PM

09 September 2005, 03:15 PM
cavematty, you should be doin' homework... :D
Good sketchin'!

10 October 2005, 11:41 PM
I'm another avid lurker. I decided to dig up this old thread so please bare with me.

I've recently started to use ArtPad and here are a few of mine:

Ichigo's bankai (

I am Rock Lee. (
You won't hurt anyone... Anymore! Kekeke... (
I do have one original jutsu... (
Another quick doodle. (

03 March 2006, 12:46 PM
Where have all the doodles gone?

Just to keep this alive...
Fast forward it. This will take a while :D

have fun florian



Batman!? Is it you???

something copied...

03 March 2006, 01:30 PM
That last one was awesome. :D I really like the portrait one, though. The bold colors really worked well on that one.

Where have all the doodles gone?
I think the problem is that this subforum orders the threads based on their start date, not by last post. So this continually gets pushed farther and farther back. I'll PM Roberto and suggest moving it to the main 2D WIP forum.
