Lonelypixel! How could you do this to me??? Dinosaur Hunting?!? What have I done to deserve this?

Be warned people... If any of my friends should be harmed, my wrath will be great. My revenge, swift.

Wow. How is it possible that I'm the first to post? Hm. It's scary :sad: :p

This took me about... 2.75 hours. Photoshop + ImageReady + Wacom. I... I just wanted to make people laugh... and it still turned out not so well :) This is, by far, the worst gif animation I've made since I started doing them (which is 6 and since the gif battle animation respectively).

12 December 2004, 02:15 PM
well well...long time not been here... :eek:
I have done much traditional drawing, really much...
And I have a scanner at home
here is my first DS in three weeks or so...

maybe you have to figure it a little bit out...but it is a T-rex eating some other dinosaur...

drawing took me 1:30 hr, digital 'inkink' about uhh 20 mins...

12 December 2004, 02:53 PM

Nice work so far folks. Wish I had more tiime on this one but gotta go out :(

12 December 2004, 07:44 PM
Cool work everybody!

I just got a package in the mail containing a Wacom 6x8!!! That means I'll be doing more sketches (it was taking too much time previously)!!! Woo hoo!

12 December 2004, 09:14 PM
it was here a second ago? PS/Wacom 1.35

12 December 2004, 09:24 PM
He's dead... LOL!

Ok here's my first sorry attempt at some Wacom art:


This Wacom thing is going to take some getting used to! though.

12 December 2004, 11:32 PM
2.5 hours in photoshop. The dinosaur part is pretty much copied from a James Gurney painting and I think I learned a lot from the process. He is really a great painter. I added the copters because I thought that would be the best way to hunt dinosaurs :)

12 December 2004, 12:29 AM

2 hours, pencil/photoshop

12 December 2004, 02:19 AM
15-20 min: PS + Wacom; No reference
The hunting of Dinosaurs we do today... there was going to be more rocks and rubble, but ya know, i suck...

12 December 2004, 03:24 AM
Don't SHOOT!!!

Painter and Photoshop used. . . still a little rough but gotta work tomorrow

12 December 2004, 03:38 AM

45 mins, photoshop + wacom

12 December 2004, 03:59 AM
This is my first tablet painting as well. Came in the mail couple days ago. Hope I can join the fun more often now.

2 hours photoshop 5 + Aiptek 9 x 12 tablet

12 December 2004, 05:14 AM
This is my first tablet painting as well. Came in the mail couple days ago. Hope I can join the fun more often now. Cool, good job. I'm having a hard time figuring this tablet thing out. I think I need to get some books or something about apainting with Photoshop and digi-tablets.

... I just wanted to make people laugh... and it still turned out not so well :) This is, by far, the worst gif animation I've made since I started doing them (which is 6 and since the gif battle animation respectively). Hey Gunslinger, are you optimizing the animation in ImageReady? I'm wondering because the file size seems too big for what it is and I think you could make it smaller by optimizing it (on the frame pallet click on the little arrow on the upper right corner and select "Optimize Animation..." and then click "OK" on the pop-ups. Then make sure you save from the "File" menu "Save Optimize As..." and then save. I think your file size will then be considerably smaller. If you already do all that then forget my advice... heh). 2˘

Hope im not late on this one...:D
Well it took me about an hour/ Open Canvas/ Tablet..
Awsome entries all!:thumbsup:
-FridayEve!!! Your daily sketches are the best man! :eek:
I was wondering what program do you use?

12 December 2004, 02:26 PM
Novacaine> I like very much the texture of the skin you did, maybe the diplodocus pose is a bit rare for being running (I must recognice I've never seen a dinosaur running)

Celile> The best of yours is the innocence in the dino's faces, lol

Vitriolic> It has atmosfere, not easy to achive that

FridayEve> That's a very good one, I specialy like the volume in bodies and the wet sensation of the tongue.

This is mine, 3hours of photoshop with wacom, I did 3 dinosaurs in different poses but no-one liked me, including this.


12 December 2004, 03:16 PM
I think you will find your life much better with a tablet :)
My wrist is already thanking me. Wow...that painting of yours is incredible. You accomplish so much with so few strokes. That's the level I want to reach.

12 December 2004, 04:56 PM
Man, I just love this forum. It's really getting me to try stuff I have never done before.

Vitriolic - great mood and lighting. I am trying to get more of this in my own work and your stuff is good inspiration.
Fridayeve - awesome look. I hope to paint this well some time in the future. I want to add a link from my site to yours. It contains some great work.
Telemico - I love the image. Such cool action and detail.

Everyone is doing cool stuff, I just don't have time to give critiques and feedback to all. I'd rather be drawing than tryping, right :)

12 December 2004, 09:14 PM
i love you style Telemaco. Great work all.. sorry if this is a bit tad late.
wacom/1.20hr/Photoshop 7

12 December 2004, 05:04 AM

12 December 2004, 02:37 PM

painter / 15min

Gunslinger ...Gertie the dinosaur on a bad day :thumbsup:

12 December 2004, 02:54 AM
Hunting dinosaurs...
I have no idea how long this took. I was working on this one when my monitor bit it the other day - and just finished it today. Let's call it 2 hours just for grins. PS/Wacom.

12 December 2004, 01:26 AM
Once upon a time there was a megacorporation in a not too far apocalyptic future... hmm... I smell a lawsuit coming so... disclaimer: any megacorporations depicted here are purely fictional and their names' resemblance to some that actually exist is purely coincidental.

Photoshop, mouse, 3 hours.

Nice work Telemaco, Friday Eve and everybody else!
PixelPlay, J_Grieve, cecile - very very funny work!

12 December 2004, 07:27 AM
Fridayeve - AMAZING probably one of the best ones i've seen you do here, at least technically.

Vitriolic - EXCELLENT job! atmosphere is great! i love the colors.

12 December 2004, 03:31 PM
my first post here for the sketch"Hunting Dinosaaurs"
Hope you'll like? (30 minutes, Photoshop +Wacom)
Greetz, MM
(Thx, Roberto)

MOD NOTE (I edited your message so there is a direct view of the image)

Neat sketch....
