"that was not in the brochure"

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
(The author will be given credit). So guys keep them coming.
*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!
* Ill post ANOTHER thread to quantify and track WHO has participated the most on these threads.

Good luck

"THAT! wasn't in the brochure... it wasn't even planned!"

12 December 2004, 08:13 PM
sorry, can't really tell what it is!

12 December 2004, 08:36 PM
That is intentional, but something about the image literally says what it is. Even though I had something in mind when drawing it, I wanted it to be sort of a mystery what is happening. But if you are really curious, it is clearly told what it is somewhere. :)

12 December 2004, 10:06 PM
Umm i still dont get what your trying to imply. The way I see it, its like some show and something goes wrong.

"but can we keep it?!"

This took me about an hour and a half. I really like some areas and think they came out well. Comments welcome

Photoshop and drawing tablet.

wish I had time for this one...finals week.

this topic was inspired by my guided tour of a graphic design school.

while touring the facility with brochure in hand, our group accidentally walked into a live nude model drawing class. all I could do was look up and say "this was not in the brochure" :)

this is completely lame, please forgive me! I need to start doing this more often and join in even on the tough topics- it's always good to challenge yourself, right?
Here we go so:

Hi there ^^

my very first sketch here :D

not a very good one I'm afraid.. ^^

12 December 2004, 01:02 PM
got a great idea from this one, too bad it's past my technical skill... i'll try and do this one after i take a few art classes.

12 December 2004, 04:36 PM
of course fridayeve and vitrolic had to post theirs right after me!! Talk about humbling! Will we ever see a tutorial from you two (incredibly talented) guys?
please....! come on everyone, let's pester them for tutorials!

12 December 2004, 09:57 PM
paperclip: never tried to do a tutorial before, but I'd be happy to give it a go some time if you're interested. Would it just be a case of posting some WIP steps with notes attached? Or is there more to it? Hopefully Friday would be keen to do one too (hint hint, nudge nudge :D) - I'd also love to see how he works.


12 December 2004, 10:44 PM
Aghh.. I just love Vitriolic's and FridayEve's works...
I do not get it how they do it...
But practice makes master, so i'm practicing like a maniac so on one day, I could be like they are now :P
Both's ideas are good too.
Btw, FridayEve how did you make the footprints look like theyre actually wet?
Or is it a secret? Hope not.

12 December 2004, 11:42 PM
Hmmm looks like he made a vertical gradient to which he highlighted part of the edges. And of course he threw in some talent. That was a nice one. :thumbsup:

Hi there ^^

my very first sketch here :D

not a very good one I'm afraid.. ^^I like it. It's way better than mine :thumbsup:

12 December 2004, 04:38 AM
FridayEve and Vitrolic, it'd be great if you could post a WIP style thing on here, we could make a special daily sketch WIP day showing how each of us (ahemfridayeveandvitrolicahem) do our stuff.....anything you want to keep secret, no worries but i don't think you have to worry about us absorbing your talent!!
Ah come on fellas....sie sind so talentiert! ...ok, time to stop my praise, I'm starting to sound a little like a stalker or something!:thumbsup:

12 December 2004, 06:39 AM
wow- thanks for the comments-
sorry for the slow reply, work his been kicking my butt this week.

Mtfr is right- to create those muddy spots - i put those strokes on the layer above the canvas and tried to get the color to look right- then i just hit the tops with the air brush to make them look reflective.

i saved my process doing sketch 194 today. i will have to put them up on my site this weekend to show how i usually work. (even though i am not entirely happy with that one)
again thanks for the positive comments-

12 December 2004, 12:53 PM
(even though i am not entirely happy with that one)
Friday, you're never entirely happy with the results... that's inherent for beeing an artist ;)

12 December 2004, 06:52 PM
Brilliant, one down, one to go! Where's vitrolic? Goro? Art2? Come on guys...!!
