They dont have explicit 'realist' content, but graphically, I think they are pretty solid - what do you think?

Not as if I hadn't said it before, but I always get stuck when I see your abstracts. It's like some sort of visual glue my eyes cling to.

And I actually don't even try to figure them out or anything.

They're a bit like minimalist modern classical music, maybe Arvo Pärt-like, though they're somewhat too saturated for that analogy - but they share that hypnotical quality of music, in general.
I am not a synaesthet or something - I just compare things to music very often...

Also, your black and white figure art in this thread is very uncompromising and exciting.


Vahn - if I had never clicked the link to this thread to watch all the wonderful stuff that's happening in here I would have never known that all the exciting paintings you did for the dsg were created with a mouse....and you only recently got your tablet!?!?

Some people can paint with a wet brick on dust while I couldn't even make use of an intuos3 properly... yet:twisted:

anyway, I really enjoy everyone's contribution! Always looking forward to your creative overflow. Thanks a lot.

Thank you for the kind welcome Vahn, I've been an admirer of your work for a while now. :) It has been people like you who have prompted me to start working on here. Keep inspiring me please...

30 min. ishness on photoshop with mouse =3
it looks like a ganguro girl from this anime i was watching
one day, so i thought i'd try to imitate it.
just for clarification ganguro is japanese for one who is into
tanning salons, dying their hair and into fashion/make-up
not bad for a 14 yr old? ._.

01-16-2006, 06:42 AM
vahn thx!

variations on some themes


01-16-2006, 12:39 PM
Hi there, I'm new to posting around here though I have been lurking and admiring the excellent works for a few months. Anyway I'd like to get in on the action so here are a couple of pics I made while experimenting with painter's liquid ink and my old wacom intuos 4x5; they were about half an hour each.



I hope to post a bit more around here though I don't think I'll be able to keep up with the rate at which some of you guys work.

01-16-2006, 01:29 PM
starting to love Painter, even texturing goes well like in PS :bounce: and mixing of colors is pure pleasure...

approx 1h30m, no ref.

01-16-2006, 03:13 PM

01-19-2006, 10:34 PM
thanks augustus.

30 min. doodle.

01-20-2006, 12:13 AM
Vahn- like the last one- really dynamic.
M@- nice to see you thrashing that cintiq, You nailed that soldier, the armour and lighting are amazing.

My old graphire 2's drivers self destructed today (probably a sign... dare i dream of greater things). just got it back on line to do this experimental beginning

01-20-2006, 01:04 AM
This looked like a fun thread. I'm blown away by most of it, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I started just with a red canvas and started scribbling with green and then saw this form take shape and went with it. Now my 30 minutes is up...

Man, weird things come out of my head.

01-20-2006, 02:06 AM
m@wsome! the light on that dirtpic is fantastic .. one of my favorites now :thumbsup::bowdown:

2xbo: hiho ... keep posting :D

01-21-2006, 12:26 AM
Uh...1 hour. This is good excercise for me. I am inspired by the lighting in M@'s work and working quickly really makes me strip things down to the bare shapes and focus more on composition than details (which is where I get bogged down).

01-21-2006, 12:47 AM
Vizon> nice image, got nice character

ZEDYANG> great, isnt that Batistuta in his days at fiorentina... class

PS 3 hrs (hoping my speeds will get a little more speedy as my workflow develops)

Hi all! Some fantastic work here!!

I thought I'd contribute something :D

Photoshop 7, about 2-5 hours

01-23-2006, 08:02 PM
~40 minutes, ArtRage 2.

01-23-2006, 09:02 PM
WOW long? Beautiful, really. I like your style.

Oh and Augustus - I like how you created such a lovely lady with such loose, easy strokes! And same for Andyonahill.

And yes, Goro's is amazing too. I like the pink glow on the ear - skinny little guys' ears often stick out a little further and they do glow in the right light, ha ha. He has such character...I am envious. :)

01-23-2006, 09:33 PM
U R awesome !!!:bounce:

& here is my first post:
painter, about 20 min of work

01-23-2006, 10:12 PM

just something that came up, it almost look like a rabbit... that wasn't really the purpose though ;), and funny stuff KDW.
And don't ask me how the hell his right arm goes that way ;)

01-26-2006, 05:19 PM
hi people

bin, goro, augustus, zhuzhu, failoniir - sweet :thumbsup: !

--1hr or so (w/ sigur rós :D)


01-26-2006, 05:43 PM
Ooooh pretty Audit! Beautiful.
And I have to say also that SquarePixel's city scribbles are astounding and brilliant. I feel incapable of creating such dynamic structures so I'm extra impressed by people who make it look so easy!
KDW - REALLY nice coloring and shading, but her chest looks a little strange to me - almost like her breasts are flat and coming off her shoulders. Did you use a reference?

01-26-2006, 07:15 PM


01-26-2006, 10:53 PM
audit - stunning.. really

01-27-2006, 12:10 AM
KDW - very nice textures on the ground! Good job!
vahn - really nice one! Good luck with painter :D
Failoniir - Wow, really good! i love that..
audit - Awsome warm colors and lightning! excelent landspace!
m@ - wow as usual! you simply rock! :buttrock:

Here is another one

Something like 1h PS

01-27-2006, 07:25 AM

Vahn: You'll get the hang of it! Looks good..
Failoniir: Great piece.

01-28-2006, 07:14 PM
Hi everybody, I've been lurking on these forums for a long, long time now and finally decided to post something..:blush:
Since It's my first attepmt to do something else than just doodling with the tablet I recently bought, I'd realy appreciate your comments and crits..
Thank you in advance, you guys rock big time.
About me - no artistic background what so ever and well over 10 years since me and my pencil were getting along :shrug: ..
Used to love drawing back when I was a kid, but It's been quite a while I guess..
However, I painted that in Artrage in an hour and a half (just a wild guess here, kinda lost track of time) and called it "Down by the water's edge", after the eponimous song of Jude Johnstone(this lady has a remarkable voice).

P.S. Pardon my poor English..

here it is, no references used if anyone cares..

Messing around with Painter IX, seems like a nice software. 40 minutes / Painter IX

comment and critique appreciated

01-29-2006, 03:50 PM
Cool drawings ppl.

Looks like Trinity plus Photoshop Filter!?

01-29-2006, 04:42 PM
This one goes out to all of you guys and girls..
So much tallented people around here, RESPECT :bowdown:..
It took me roughly 3 hours to complete in Photoshop CS, so I guess it's not quite a speedy, but I couldn't think of a better place to post it..
Used some of Goro's brushes, allthogh they definitely could be put to better use (good work buddy :thumbsup: )
Hehe, that's actually my second post here in two days, I think I'm becoming an addict..
Too bad I don't have enough time to do that more often, but I promise I'l try to keep up..
Enjoy it..

01-29-2006, 05:29 PM
Cool drawings ppl.
sorry but i don't think you'll fool anyone with this...

01-29-2006, 05:43 PM
umm easy, maybe he doesn't know the concept of these fourms yet. We are not exhibiting our photo manipuluations here, you need to paint something from scratch here :)

or he might be exceptionally good, no need to flame him :)

01-29-2006, 07:31 PM
Thanks Gord! Great speed sketches there!

vnikolov: So cute!!! I love it :D

@ enialadam - Thank you, I had a great time doing this one :-). Niiice work on your last character - maybe the nose could use a little "intervention", but it's good :thumbsup:
@ Goro, M@, Zhuzhu - you guys are unbelievable, everytime one of you posted something, I'd be stareing at my screen for an eternity (Goro, the one with the girl in the forest - such an amazing mood and emotion.. respect)

Top notch work everybody else, keep up..
