The idea was a child watching the end of the world caused by the falling asteroid. Not really captured the vibe very well but hey, what you going to do...

11 November 2004, 09:19 PM

dunno how long it took..

grillkungen: reminds me of spaceballs:D
FridayEve: big boobies and space-p0wah with laz0r and fire is what the youth wants now-a-days:D
deaderthanred: really nice color-theme. I love red-black pictures.
ApricotSoup: somwhat the same idea as mine:D good stuff with clair-obscure or how its spelled.

good stuff.

A brave warrior goes to see the Oracle to ask her why he's feeling this pain.
The Oracle says: "It burns doesn't it? I told you last month not to go fool around with that peasant girl! This... is what you get for not listing to my premonition."

I got the Oracle... no time for the warrior (crap...)

2,5h (lots of revisions), Painter, Photoshop

Good job guys!

Not much time today...:banghead:
ps 15 mins
Critique my butt off, because lets face it, I'm not up to scratch!:argh:

11 November 2004, 03:26 AM
ApricotSoup: Beautiful use of ligt source. :D
deaderthanred: I love the red atmosphere
FridayEve: Hot damn, that's some nice work there! The specularity and clouds are great!
grillkungen: It gets the point across, so it works! I don't think I qualify for a decent crit of your work!
Modder: A little hard to understand, but the strokes are lovely!
aghill: Nice firey void there. "Come with me!"
pm_ceglowski: The outliney-effect works with it well.
Octothreat: Nice. Perhaps try and sketch the buildings next time, using the photos as reference. It helps you to improve even more!
Art2: I love it. Simple, yet has a lot of impact.:)

FridayEve: Stunning sense of foreboding in those characters. And again, 2 in one day!

11 November 2004, 05:29 AM
A bit more of a play around with brushes. 1/2hr ps. Too abstract?

11 November 2004, 05:34 AM
The Forgotten Future: The cloud of destruction.

Too rushed to do it justice, but just had to post. About 30 min. PS/Wacom

11 November 2004, 07:05 AM
1 hour in photoshop. A floating city that used antigrav tech that went wrong, leaving the city abandoned. Kind of Laputa inspired.

11 November 2004, 02:47 PM
Finally found some time to do a sketch!!!

I have missed some treeeemendous topics over the last few days! Absolutely gutted!

Anywho, here's mine for the Forgotten Future one... 40 mins/Pshop.

I hope Goerge can make em tie up otherwise I'll be very disappointed...

Y'all seen the new Episode III trailer yet?

11 November 2004, 02:59 PM
Great sketches guys!! :)
The Ton, that sketch just oozes with truth...;) yes I've seen the trailer for.....Revenge of the Sith... *makes choking noises*

11 November 2004, 06:09 PM
Erilaz: thank you mate!
The Ton: :cry: man I love starwars :cry: (very funny and well done none the less...)

11 November 2004, 07:41 PM
nice sketches guys!

11 November 2004, 09:28 PM
Nice sketches everyone!

This is one of the street boys you can find in many cities in Latin America... They have no future and everyone has forgotten them, but still some of them manage to be somehow happy and make fun of things.
OpenCanvas - Photoshop / Wacom / 3 hrs:

11 November 2004, 03:00 PM
