Five minutes or so. Photoshop. Mouse. Watching out for the boss. :)

Zem hi hi sneaking at work eh? Not bad for 5 min of clandestine sketching :D... What is that in his butt.
Ashton ouchy!
danielh68 thats a freaky image. It has that machine futuristic matrix look to it.
Cavematty I have never considered flash a drawing software, but you managed to make a real nice sketch in 10 minutes, good job.
Overchord Lol, love it! I can see this in the newspapers funnies :D
rawwad Why do all your sketches always look so epic in style? You have a great talent for drawing backrounds and adding the right colors and lights to them. awesome.
se7enthcin Cool style, very different from your usual sketch, me like... I agree with Rawwad I see the Pollock coming out of this image.
aelwine Wow this is incredible, I absolutely love this image. The scale, the enviorment, lighting and texture are great. If you may how do you get that texture in your paintings? The hardest thing for me is to add detpth and texture to an image, especially an enviorment.

Ashton, is that based of a short story by Road Dahl? (sp?)

02 February 2006, 03:33 PM
