that's got to be the first tank in history Zyrinx! hehehe, good one, ....and I agree, it's a cool topic :) here is mine:

around 1h in photoshop, I'm too slow - aaargh!
I'm trying to practice sketching directly on the computer, without using the scanner...
I think I was influenced by telémaco style in this one...

Thank Bill Waterson for changing the way I look at dinosaurs. I love his Calvin & Hobbes Dinos.
These are all great...
ernii - I see the matrix way cool!

Zyrinx: We had pretty similiar ideas. The look on the dinos face is great. :D

elmasfeo: Really nice sketch. The hat gives a nice touch. :thumbsup:


Uhmm.. yeah, the head looks pretty weird but.. oh well. I have no idea how long this took me. I was chatting on messenger, watching tv and painting a few strokes every now and then.

02 February 2006, 10:52 PM
Thanks guys! ;)

very interesting strokes, TheDagger, I like that style...

03 March 2006, 01:17 AM

My entry. A play off an old Far Side cartoon.
Photoshop, about 2-3 hours.

thdagger: I love your loose brushy strokes and your colors! I've always loved the way folks can make so much form with just a few strokes.... what program did you use?

elmasfeo: Great sketch!

These are all so funny!

03 March 2006, 02:04 PM
I know it's shoddy, and to make life easier i defined 'gun' as 'thing that shoots projectiles' :p

5 minutes ballpen :D
20 minutes in gimp... wasn't supposed to take this long..

Like ernii's and twisterchash's take :o

03 March 2006, 04:24 PM

03 March 2006, 08:06 PM
Altheia: Thanks. :) I like the colours on your sketch as well. I used Painter IX for the sketch. (I bought the educational edition about a month ago and I'm loving it.)

augustus: Ha. I knew someone would draw that kind a dinosaur. :D

DJ - "that kind of dinosaur" can be that dinosaur is often slang for a very old person, also sometimes called an old fossil, Methusela, gramps, old fogey, old fart, ancient, decrepit, etc...
or for reference, ME! :scream:
