Photoshop, quick one, about 1 hour.

01 January 2005, 06:47 PM
jepp it's transilvania just in case you wondered.
about 1 hour.
I guess I had the the same idea as Herr katt first, just with the mars. But then I saw the beautyful moon and just couldn't resist. So I guess I used the moon as reference
It's not really finished but I guess there's not much I can do for that piece anymore.

01 January 2005, 06:55 PM
To my dreams. Painter/1 hour

01 January 2005, 07:17 PM

01 January 2005, 10:15 PM
I did that in 2004 - went to Heaven (New Zealand) & Australia.

So I'll have to come up with a different idea for this one.

01 January 2005, 11:47 PM

01 January 2005, 02:08 AM
If I could go anywhere on vacation, I'd go... to sleep.

I'm sorry to break the illusion Robin, but those fluffy things you saw everywhere in NZ weren't clouds, they were sheep -- isn't that right Vitrolic? :D

01 January 2005, 08:53 AM
... back to 1629 AD and visit the Master 'in His Studio'.
Several hours - PS, Wacom.

01 January 2005, 09:16 AM
awesome work all! :) this place that doesnt exist.

01 January 2005, 01:30 PM
from here (

While jokes about New Zealand's sheep population are often made by its neighbor across the Tasman Sea, Australia's own sheep population is almost three times bigger.

who would have thought, eh drawmonger! :twisted:

PS: Zebula - that's awesome!

01 January 2005, 03:43 PM
GrRrReat work ya'all!

iv'e just got one question if i have done a sketch that i have contribute in another thread can i then post it here if i edit it a bit??
ps.that sheep thing was funny as hell :thumbsup:

01 January 2005, 04:50 PM
DrawMonger - too too funny! And yes...there are LOTS of sheep there. At least they are cuter than all the cows you see driving through Texas! In Texas, a fluffy cow is called a Buffalo! :)

Have had no time for sketches lately. :( Maybe later today.

01 January 2005, 05:30 PM
I think this little guy is a bit lost...

Painter&Phshop 20-30min

01 January 2005, 11:01 PM
Yes, we have a lot of sheep. They're all part of a witness protection program.

01 January 2005, 06:44 AM
Wow, I almost missed this one. Is it bad form to not post a sketch when it's your own idea?
Anyway, here it is a day late. I've always wanted to go to London. Someday...

Wacom, Photoshop, 50 minutes

01 January 2005, 06:46 AM
PS: Zebula - that's awesome!

Thanks Vitriolic :) but I can't take all the credit - you may already know, this is after an early Rembrandt "The Artist in His Studio" 1629. I have pulled the view back so that I can appear in the picture too, on my vacation.

01 January 2005, 05:52 PM
roaming through these hills.... concept that came into mind after reading this topic. 34 minutes in photoshop cs with a graphrie 3 tablet.

01 January 2005, 07:35 PM
*sigh*, swimming with the fishies. This was supposed to be just a quick one but I got carried away with the fishes and coral a bit... thats me in the upper right ;)

Photoshop, 3hrs

01 January 2005, 08:05 PM
Illumino - Very impressive. I love it.

01 January 2005, 05:31 AM

yes, I'd say more cows and sheeps then people in the outback.. hahahah

01 January 2005, 05:08 PM
I don't think you mean any. I guess you could draw mine, MWarsane's or Eyern's for sure.
