Cute work, Kalorlo, but shouldn't it be 'Behold my works, ye mighty, and despair'?
Unless it's not Ozymandias, then I stand corrected...

hahaha, tevih - great! ^_^

well, obvoisuly I didn't finish mine. ;)
The overall experience on this one was rather frustrating. Although I finally hate it now ;),
I've learned a great deal from this one. Mainly about myself and my workflow. ^_^

There was a story behind it. Explaining who's crypt that is and why that guy is standing there. But I guess it doesn't really matter anymore at this point. ;>

keep up the good work everyone. :D

cpt761 and doomdragon .... funny stuff :thumbsup:

Well, per Linda's advice she gave me in her Question and Answer thread, I'm gonna start doing these daily sketches.

I picked up an Intuos 2, this is my first time using it. I sketched the line art on paper, and then traced it in.

Don't laugh. ;)

Winblows was giving me a hard time, hence the image here. Note the bright, happy colours. ;)

About 1.5 hours including the original sketch. Colouring in Photoshop.

FridayEve - terrific, great angle on the topic


04 April 2005, 07:56 AM
Quick, crappy sketch. I wasn't feeling too motivated for some reason...
Everyone feel free to break out into laughter. ;)
PS, 20-30 minutes.

FridayEve - awesome sketch! A lot of style and details. Quite the sketch. :)

Um, yes, it should be but I remembered it wrong. Whoops. I'll just pretend I did it on purpose, since I am comparing all gravestones of the rich and famous ultimately to Ozymandias. Yes. :)

noble , rich and famous in the dark...

painter, 30 minutes...

04 April 2005, 01:56 AM
Well i've been watching the daily sketch group for a while and finally got a Wacom so i'm going to try to get into the "group".

tevih, cpt761, gordonm - all very funny

fridayeve - great lighting and nice detail

Maybe i'll try to enter something later if come up with something good.
