10 October 2004, 11:03 PM
Great work Elmasfeo! I had a similar idea but got no time to do it... Glad you did!

I have to do mine tomorrow coz it's the first time an avatar sketch has come up and I actually HAVE an avatar! Yay!

Vitriolic, that is wicked!

SuperV and Drumwhore, great to see your stuff back up here! Nice one guys!

Goro, that is excellent!

By the way, Drum and Goro, please tell me what brushes you use, my stuff NEVER looks that clean in Photoshop!

See you back here tomorrow with all kinds of Avatar related shenangigans.

Rock on.

The Ton

1h PS/Pentagram

Hope You like it elmasfeo :)
Great job everyone! :D

10 October 2004, 01:26 AM
This is the best I could do in an hour...intermitantly. I'm at work! :D
I figure I'm only going to get better at sketching if I do these, so....
EDIT: Oh, and I used PS. :)

10 October 2004, 01:48 AM
Great work people.
This took about 25 minutes with a 4B. It's my first shot at this. (hi everybody.) I hope to be a regular.
<edit>whops, no avatar in there... I mean, my future avatar is in there. :D, yeah that's it.</edit>

10 October 2004, 02:04 AM
Here's mine.. spent about 2 hours and 30 min on that.. :/ Was harder than I thought and I'm getting rusty with painting.. *sighs*.. Photoshop CS.

10 October 2004, 02:15 AM
*laughs* My gosh, this thread has made my day today! I love yours Supervlieg!! Not to mention, Goro, Drumwhore, Vitriolic, and everyone else, great as usual! You guys are inspiring. :)

10 October 2004, 04:10 AM
Impressive all! Especially Goro, DreamMaster and Vitriolic! Here's another quick one... I really hope I get better as time goes on!
PS...1/2 hr:

10 October 2004, 04:27 AM
Hey everyone, really great entries! Mine will probably be late. I just got home from taking a family friend to the hospital (nothing too serious - bruises from a car accident), its 11:30 pm and I have to work tomorrow. sigh!

Vitriolic - that's a pretty good likeness, except I'm even more gorgeous...think along the lines of say...Catherine Zeta Jones. Ok, thinking of her? Good, but I look nothing like that! :)

elmasfeo - not so sure I look good with green skin OR blond hair - but thanks for making me "handsome"! :)

10 October 2004, 05:37 AM
Well decided to go ahead and sketch, sleep can wait when there are Avatars to draw!
1 hr PS/Wacom.

10 October 2004, 06:04 AM
Great entries you all! I'm always so impressed by the quality and creativity on these threads.

Elmasfeo>>Cool to be in your picture. I like the vampire outfit. You know when The Ton got drunk at that party and started chasing his tail, I thought we would all die. :)

Sorry, no entry from me this time. Last day at work. Will loose a steady internet connection. have to work something out.

10 October 2004, 07:18 AM
How long? No clue (off and on whilst multi-tasking)... PS+wacom.
My avatar with a Goro mask. Just kinda wingin the CG paint thing.

10 October 2004, 07:22 AM
1 hour photoshop mouse lack of sleep, back to work :)

10 October 2004, 09:31 AM
Great posts everyone!
Elmasfeo - that was just excellent!! good job man, you got me laughing blood out of my lungs :)
i just wanted to subscribe to the thread and thought i might as well do it through a incouragement message :)

10 October 2004, 09:56 AM
My Little Angel avatar in his Halloween Costume. Muhahaha! 45min Photoshop, trackball.

Great stuff everyone!

10 October 2004, 12:57 PM
THANKS for the kind words!!, I didn't expected that many replies:bounce:
Hope You like it elmasfeo :)not only I like it, I love it! I still can't make hands properly... good job!

robinayles, I have no idea why did I thought that you had blond hair, I didn't use your avatar as a ref, I thought about my sister when she was little and... anyway, that's what happens with a b&w avatar :D

thanks a lot opeth, I'm glad you like it, you don't post very often lately, I'll waiting for your entry today...... here..... sitting on this chair.....(I don't know why there isn't a smilie staring at you, this one is the nearest--->:surprised )

10 October 2004, 01:33 PM
In honor of that remark, you get to be first..
here, I dressed up my foot as you trick or treatin', but it came off a little because i stepped on it a few times ;)
(23 minutes, PS.. i decided to use a watch and time myself this time!)

Hope you like it!
more to come.. i hope :)

10 October 2004, 02:23 PM
Well, i made myself sit down for another one...
Goro, i warned you! :)
(26 minutes, PS, Wacom, timed again)

10 October 2004, 02:24 PM
Nice work every one
1 houre ps+wacom
Oo i'm a bit late :scream:

10 October 2004, 03:44 PM
hahaha thnx guys for including me in your pics!!

Dreammaster nice one!
Opeth that's hilarious!

10 October 2004, 03:48 PM
Hilarious posts Opeth! Glad to see you back!

elmasfeo - Its ok to make me blonde, but the only way I'm getting there is with an industrial bottle of bleach! I tried on a blonde wig once and I look REALLY BAD as a blonde! :)

Very impressive work everyone!

10 October 2004, 03:57 PM
Hey, thanks Goro and Robinayles! :)
Glad to be back ;)

10 October 2004, 05:07 PM
Hi peeps!

I know it's late but as I said, I had to do it!

When he had finished chasing his tail, TheTon was finally drunk enough for the Avatars to take him for a joyride...

Some excellent stuff on this thread! Another Classic I fear!



10 October 2004, 05:36 PM
Yeah! Funny one :) Onwards people!

10 October 2004, 06:00 PM
hehe, the ton, very impressive! ...even if I don't feel very safe inside the mouth of a drunk T-rex...(glups)

opeth, great and funny ones! and quite fast!:eek: (at least for me that's fast)

10 October 2004, 02:57 AM
Don't worry guys, your perfectly safe with me... *hic*
...honestly, I drive better when I'm drunk anyway..*hic*
