View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 655 THE 55 MINUTE SKETCH: "BLACK
03-22-2006, 04:00 PM
* You have 55 , (count them 55 !) minutes to do your sketch.
IF you go beyond the assigned time limit , you have to post WHATEVER you have done after the time has expired, along with the FINAL drawing
Also, I will add a new voting category, called THE FASTEST DRAW
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.
PS To submit your topic ideas and suggestions go to this thread:

I've been inspired to participate while viewing some amazing artists who have been taking part in Daily Sketch. . . I could always use practice, so here's my first post.
This is a sketch of Frank Black from the Pixies. I used photo reference from the web. I went over the time limit ('bout 1.5hrs). Sorry. Used photoshopCS2 on a Mac with Wacom.
