Alright, coming home from a shitty day, paradise is having the loved one waiting for you in a warm cosy bed.
Tho it was hard to draw a guy without turning it into a Village people poster so It had to be a woman.

So, the end of the bed, the edge of paradise :)
Couldnt be more commersial along the "sex sells" but the man with the messed up tie who was supposed to stand at the side of the bed ruined the composition ;)

Photoshop, bout an hour while watching tv.

This being my first post, I hope a png is acceptable.

About an hour and a half, photoshop, while listening to the tv...

That has a stunning sense of story to it FridayEve. Beautiful.:love:

An actual sketch for a change, though I think I may try and paint this one up. It actually has some message for me. An honest to goodness actual comment on the materialism which seems to be filling the vacuum left in organized religion's wake. The fact that the whole metaphor is strongly biblical is also pleasantly ironic I think.

Ahem....anyways.....theres my picture. :curious:

<<PS7 ~45min>>

11-11-2004, 08:49 AM

40 mins, painter 7

11-11-2004, 12:25 PM
hmm.. quite a lot ppl with the same idea. I'm one of them.

it's been a while :beer:

a little too saturated I'm afraid.. and the height doesn't work.. I should've made it less long.

hi, my first post in the daily sketch forum, and first post in a while.
i hadn't used that tablet for so long...

to all the snowboarder like me who can't wait for the season to start.

Too many great pieces for lazy ol' me to comment on, but wanted to say my piece:

Juji -- Very nice! I like the female figure you incorporated into the tree trunk.

Keem -- Your "new style" looks like stained glass. The heavy black lines are a nice touch.

Alice -- Beautiful and very emotive. I think the picture is much stronger with just the female character.
