This one took a bit longer than usual, mostly because i took a bit more time on doing a proper pencil sketch this time.

3h, Pencil + PS + Wacom

Quick sketch, 15min photoshop. Yey for stick figures. :D

1hr, photoshop + wacom

01 January 2006, 06:11 AM
2 hours in Photoshop - used a picture of a downhill mountain bike race for ref

01 January 2006, 06:58 AM
Wacom and ArtRage 2.0, 1.5 hours.

The new ArtRage is a lot of fun! Layers really help... and the erase works now. Much more responsive than the first version.

Nyro- very surreal. Nice job for a quick sketch, the contrast between the forground and the background could be a little stronger.
Overchord - excellent line work, lots of nice detail and the expression on the rider's face is quite determined. No one will be laughing at his bike!
InesD - I like the effect on the wheel, the shading gives a good pinwheel effect. The rider is about to fall off the unicycle though
Vitriolic - wow! Almost zen-like. I like the simplicity and composition of this. Also, my favorite style of bike.
Novacaine - good pose and the figure is quite strong. I like the strength of the background as well.

my first port in a while

45min photoshop at current size.

Overchord : sweet:D only thing missing is a pink basket hehe :)

Yup I was contemplating giving him a basket with his favourite teddy bear riding along in it, may i'll add it at a later stage :D

Nyro: Nice surreal sketch - kinda freaky, but good drawing :)

InesD: I'm impressed you're still sticking to posting one for every day! Nice quick lines

Vitriolic: Great sketch - good thing there are no handlebars, they would probably only be painful for him :D

Novacaine: Great picture, good feeling of speed in the picture!

GauntMan: Hahah jsut before we're run over by a tricycle. I'm impressed with what you can do with ArtRage, Need to try the new version.

xodibox: Great sketch, love the light in the forrest!

Nice to get back to this, I don't know how some of you manage to keep it up, it's so time consuming.

I gave a different style than I normally use a go.

~1hr / GIMP / tablet

Ok, so I'm a bit late on this one. But anyways, I had a bit of inspiration from the show "American Dad".

There's some really nice sketches on this one, good work everyone.
