Here my first try on this sketch forum. Cool idea by the way.

I started this image in Flash MX and imported it into Photoshop and did some tinkering with it. took 1 hour.

yes I know, the colors are intense, I just got out of control. :)

This is based on the old joke where... well, see for yourself... hope you get it...
Photoshop 7, wacom, 2 hours.

Terry, nice painting, but I didn't get the joke. Care to recite it? :)

11 November 2004, 02:21 PM
uhm...I guess my technique is not at the level of the idea...but that's why I'm here, so without shame! 3 hours / painter

11 November 2004, 03:35 PM
painter, 50 min.

11 November 2004, 11:54 PM
I had the same idea as Timmatron :p

Hope this shows up ok...

Storyboard: blueline-pencil , brush-ink. Reillustrated in Illustrator, exported into Photoshop, opened in ImageReady and animated. Around 5 hours (I had to draw 3 different little guys).

Such beautiful entries!!
FridayEve, she is stunning. Yours and Novacaine's reminded me of Princess Amidala :love:

This lesser one is called "You may now kiss the bride" :)

3.5 hours, Painter 8 + PS + Wacom tablet.

Just to show how things can literally change "for better or worse" during the course of a sketch, here's the bride at an earlier stage, a point where I tend to think she was in somehwhat better form, at least in terms of the nose and her overall expression :shrug:

Ps+wacom 1.5 hour

11 November 2004, 12:36 PM

The people look a bit flat, don't know if that's your intention, but I like it.
It reminds me of Parrapa the Rapper (playstation game).

(The people look a bit flat) yeb thats because the time:scream:

sa9dm, it's supposed to be a situation where the groom forgot the ring and had to replace it with a cheap one from a cereal box... hehehe I guess I didn't illustrate it well enough.. ah well, back to the old drawing board. literally..

11 November 2004, 01:46 AM
No Terry, I don't think there was any fault in your illustration.. Now that I see it, I think the expressions were very good. I being from a community, where this is not the normal marriage ceremony; it was hard for me to judge the importance of ring etc..:)


11 November 2004, 05:57 AM
Thanks sa9dm! Don't sweat it, see you on the next challenge! :)
