Welcome to the cgtalk sketch group.

We will try to post one of these topics once a day for your enjoyment.

These are the rules:
* Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
* RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
* Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
* The topics will be picked at random from the list on this thread

*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!

ah! cool topic, let's see what I can come up with.

11 November 2004, 03:42 PM
hey I had this really great idea but after hours trying to get it right it looked bad so I just gave up!

nah just a joke, I'll do something later. I'm using a school computer right now and all it has is paint.

I started this yesterday but decided to "bow" it a little towards this topic, hope no one minds. It was really just 15 minutes of work what I did yesterday. I wanted the bullit to go straight to the camera but it turned out difficult to make clear what was going on, with the plane behind it and all, so I made it go slightly higher, so you just might keep a little hope.. ;) just a little.

oh well, it's meant to be some guy standing on a rock in a rough sea/lake/ocean/puddle, i accidently smudged the little man, though it does give him a more active look...

but i could have given the rock a bit more depth to it

11 November 2004, 11:09 PM
1h+30-40min painter, no ref.

When your pilot is down and your only job is to drop bombs and navigate... then I guess you can start abandoning all your hope... especially if you don't have the necessary piloting skills.

nice work all!
