Hi everybody! ...It's been a while since I posted anything here...

I think it took maybe 1h 20 min or so... I don't like the guy, I still get a lot of trouble drawing human forms.... but I'm happy with the accident around the moon...

I'm a bit worried about the lack of participation lately... where's everybody? if this is so empty now, what will happen when the next challenge starts? c'mon people!

02 February 2006, 07:15 PM
I just couldn't resist this one....Maybe its because I just got back from the Megacon and have Comics on the brain....

Photoshop and Wacom, 45 minutes. BTW, I usually do these in pencils, it was surpisingly difficult to do this with a Wacom....

02 February 2006, 07:21 PM
Hi guys ;) Today's topic is inspiring!!! I don't want to clutter it with some wip (cause I'm not sure I'll finish it in time) so I posted the current stage of development in my signature thread I'd be glad to hear your opinions / advices on it.
Cheers ;)

Hooray! My first post! I've been poking around a bit, and deceided I really couldn't resist the topic. It made me think about what all those crazy kids did for fun before television.

painterIX + wacom + 45 min.

02 February 2006, 10:26 AM
Photoshop+Wacom. 1 Hour 45 Minutes

Valentina: lovely sketch. I must say you are improving fast!. Composition and colours are good! I like the translucency of the candle (must keep it in mind in my own painting) and the dots of light on the wall. Very moody atmosphere.
A question: did you use any reference for the candle?

regards, Enrico

02 February 2006, 11:21 AM
Grazie Enrico :)
Nope, didn't use reference, usually I don't as I tend to loose myself looking for more when I first do :scream:

Danielh- Great scetch
Butch- Allmost looks like he's hiding from the guy whit the baloon. Cute bear :)
Chimp- Looks really nice :). You forgot to post time and software though

02 February 2006, 12:59 PM
Well, that's mine...I'll call this final. Maybe six hours on photoshop, no references. It's a bit oversize (800x800) let me know if I have to reduce it. (

02 February 2006, 02:28 PM
Altheia: need more contrast for further realization.. nice try, but i didn't get the point of idea..
djtrousdale: creative vision ;)
twistercash: nice idea to paint an afro-man in a dark night ;) double black ;)
Lady Medusa: your candle is very impressive and realistic - great result for painting without references!
Xillion: best idea and realization of this topic for now

Sorry for the lateness but I felt bad for not contributing recently...
Also I'm currently in a comics art mood so here's a sketch of one of my fav comic superhero - the definitive Green Lantern Hal Jordan (accept no substitutes!)

Wacom + PS approximately 1 hr.

03 March 2006, 05:58 PM
Wow, I haven't participated in this in a while.

Photoshop...maybe 25-30 minutes?

03 March 2006, 08:23 PM
