* 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.

Well, not really happy with this one, never really felt it was "right" from the word go, but was a bit drained of ideas, so :shrug:
Anyway, 1 hour, PS + Wacom

Those threads are great, gives you a topic on which you can distract for an hour between the bigger works, great idea! :D
Was in color, but I prefer the monochromatic version.

The High Priestess of the First Order, in charge since childhood, blind yet sees everything and knows what has to be chained in the clues of destiny...

captaineasychord - Great sketch, like the flow of your lines in the pic!

ZombieFrog - Great sketch, 10 mins is really fast! Thats the time it takes me jsut to sit down, stretch, get a cup of coffee and think "right, now i'm ready" :D

mindofka - for some reason or other I can't see your sketch :shrug:
lucavi - once again a fantastic sketch:thumbsup: I really love how you are managing to incroporate all the symbology while maintaining your unique style.

Heheheheh...I tend to do creepy things, or unconfortable, when in "relaxed mode" :D
I did it coloured, but I made an orange background that really didn't fit, so I flatten on one tone, the fast expedient...
