View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 648THE 30 MINUTE SKETCH: "Yellow"

03 March 2006, 03:00 PM
OK we are going to do AN EXPERIMENT for the next few days...

You have 30, (count them 30!) minutes to do your sketch. The idea is that at the end of those 20 minutes you have to post your sketch in whatever form it is.
So bring out your sketcbook, and your watch, ill be watching you!

The idea of this exercise is to build up speed m so you may post as many DIFFERENT sketches as you want.

And by the way, to keep people in their toes, I will vary the LENGHT of time.


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

Absolutely great topic (plus it forced me to do some speed painting)! Total time = 45 minutes (idea, original pencil composition, scan and paint). Had a real good time, plus I thought the last 2 entries from me were disappointingly weak. Glad to do something that looks more like "me".

EDIT: Crap, just realized this was a 30 minute challenge, not 45!!! Sorry. I will remove the entry, if it's a problem.

Note: Roberto - I find I am more inclined to do dsg with a time limit.

this was all I could think about when I saw the yellow topic - I love the Speed Sketches
I Feel so Alive!

here's the inspiration

CarlWahl - It's artwork like your sketch that keeps me hooked on the daily sketch! Love it!

03 March 2006, 07:18 AM
Wow CarlWahl!

This one's so beautiful! Good Pic :eek:

03 March 2006, 08:47 AM
Carl Wahl - :cry:

*calms down*
*looks again*


I thought the last 2 entries from me were disappointingly weak.

I think that most of your entries are intimidatingly strong...

03 March 2006, 10:03 AM
Great one, Carlwahl! I love the atmosphere- quiet yet vibrant! I also like the idea behind twistercash's. Only thing I would suggest is to practise making lighter lights and darker darks- desaturate the image and you'll see what I mean.

I would have done a lot more with this if it hadn't been for that pesky time limit!

03 March 2006, 10:35 AM
twistercash - MichaelMotion - Mr. Mu - paperclip, wow, thanks guys. That whole image is a row of happy mistakes though. I'm far from actually knowing what I'm doing so these daily sketch groups are great since they force me to take the mileage so I can get better.

paperclip, I really like that one. Very pleasing both in composition and color scheme.

wonderful reflection of the skyblue on the shaded side of the balloon. Wonderful sphere in general and pleasing composition!

The word Yellow instantly reminds me of the cereal brand 'Sugar Puffs's (made bye Quaker) "mascot" the Honey monster. And so i drew it :D
