I wasn't sure what to do for this one, but once I started sketching I got to thinking about one of my favorite books - Ender's game. At the end of the book, Ender, a young boy, must guide the Earth fleet to victory against the alien space fleets. The book describes it as a kind of video game with generals and admirals watching his progress. The cool part is that Ender thinks it's just a game, but he is really controlling the fleet and if he loses, the earth will be doomed. I highly recommend the book. Anway this was a good excuse to draw my interpretation of that moment. Funny stuff ERIK.

Rasdasa - welcome back! Haven't seen you in a while. As to your sketch - SWEET! Love it!

Erikoinen - That really rocks! The fur looks so real, I'm amazed! :D

Thanks Robin, I'm just so bloody freaking busy now that I can't do every day, and that turns into not doing any day *sigh* tsk tsk... I'm going to try and fit in whatever topics really interest me atleast, hopefully I can, even with school jacking most of my time.. I miss doing this though, it was always such a kick of motivation.

Ok, I must have scrapped about 20 tries on this one. I was ready to just toss something out the window when this vision scurried across my brain:

about 2 hours, Open Canvas 3 Plus (Just got it for my daughter for Christmas and thought I'd take it for a spin) and Photoshop

Holly crap, there is such a medly of styles on this board. It be so refreshing

Hey Erikoinen, I love the detail used on the angel but I think that the lion blended into the background a little to much, very nice fast creative thinking.

I have a photo called "The whole gang Xmas of '83" that looks exactly like the pic you submitted. The photo was taken after several hours of heavy partying, the strangest thing was, the photo was taken using anti-redeye flash .
