"First Date"


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!
* Ill post ANOTHER thread to quantify and track WHO has participated the most on these threads.

Good luck

InesD- Very nice!

Experimenting with Photoshop. (50min).
...and I dont like the result, it's overtextured :/

No time to finish this, I'm late for my date! Alt+Tab (Phew, made it just in time)
[edit] damn, I forgot to apply posterize to complete the effect

Her0d - It's beautiful, perhaps a little texture of rain on the umbrellas would balance out all the ground textures. I think everything else is textured great! Nice work.

InesD - Nice simple and to the point, perv. Good stuff. But not even that protection can save you in the Blizzard War!

Thanks :-) And You're absolutely right about the rain on the umbrellas - I just reuploaded the image with few modifications :)

...edit: I could not resist to post another idea :) (the OS language is in two languages ( Polish/English), because I was too lazy to translate everything :)
(Photoshop, 40min:)

yep - lots of ducks in my drawings diet lately - for more ducks, Thekkur, click here. (


Nice work, Herod! Reminds me of that great kidnapping sequence in Oldboy. And I really like the textures you put in - it really separates the sidewalk from the umbrellas. The whole piece works very nicely.

Her0d - you are too hard on yourself - I like the textures, but agree about the umbrellas - also like your second one!

Ines - on the first date? SHAME on you...everyone knows there is the 3rd date rule! HA! :)

Dargon - good to see you back, great work, man!

Steppington - I like that a lot!

Good work everyone!
