We will do ALL 12 months on the calendars for 2 weeks, OUT OF ORDER.

Have fun
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!

Good luck

Figured I'd jump on the turkey thing before anyone else did. Then I realized this only applies to the US Oh well.
Artrage and paint (for text) w/ mouse 30min
Fear me for I have mastered Artrage... yeah.... right..

daw - Love the cats, hopefully this one doesn't smoke or it could pop the balloon. Only critique would be possibly horizontal flip the second cat away. It looks kind of cut & paste.

What can I say.. I like PIE!!! Took about 20 minutes in Artrage.
Daw- Very nice, gotta love the cats.
Zyrinx- Gobble gobble, nice turkey.

PS ~1h30

A Dark street on a rainy November Night

daw : I really like this one, a lot of depth in it and you did a good job with the compo
Zyrinx : Hehe, poor Turkey, If only she knew what's her fate she would probably be fleeing in fear lol
Wiggin :With this and the turkey above, you guys are making me hungry :p

There are some really great sketches in here guys!

here's my Nov (with a little fan tribute if anyone gets it). Now, the question is: why is he shirtless in Nov? Answer: I don't know. I forgot to put a shirt on until the end and didn't like how it was turning out, so I decided maybe he really likes the cold. While I was visiting the Mediteranean recently there was a guy from russia swimming in it while it was rainy and about 55 degrees! So, maybe this guys is from russia? :D

Done in Painter and Photoshop (with my own custom leaf brush this time). Took me about 2 hours.

November 3rd The entrance to King Tutankhamen's tomb was discovered, 1922. Its a little out of topic but I love eyptian art... I got bored with the astronomy signs.. I think history is cooler :D

Hardly a sketch.. spend too much time on it.. Its not very imaginative or creative since I just redrew what I saw in my referene.. Nothing creative here... still I am happy with it.

4-5 hours Photoshop CS2 (Used a reference). Please crit.

Daw Awesome sketch very imaginative.
Zyrinx Awww poor little turkey,.. he looks tasty
aelwine Thatr is fantastic. your lighiting is beautiful.. Great job.
jullenar I like this image very much, it looks dreamlike.. like he is lost into his book and the stories are coming to life around him.
ComradeBitterBrrr She looks cold. Nice sketch, I always have trouble drawing people.
Ashton I am intrigued by this image.. what is going on exactly and what is that red face on the window.. looks kind of spooky.

The dark gods promised keelinka to deliver her lover in autumn when the leaves turn red.
Keelinka knew her lover couldn't live long enough to make it. She cut a part of her very long hair,
gathered these in a giant brush and painted all the forest leaves in red. The gods were defeated,
they delivered her lover.

A love touch is never too much to light up the autumn.

PS/CS/ wacom /2 hours

Daw, your cats turn me on!:bounce:
Aelwine, great mood, espacially the lighting.:thumbsup:
Jullenar, great energy in that scarf.(good colors too):D
