* You have 25 , (count them 25 !) 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

Heh, it's a less-than-spectacular attempt but the cliché is that he is a devil manufactured by mankind which mankind cannot control—other than that I think it's a hilarious pose, punching helicopters.. :D First DSG ever!

Cool drawings, people. For your first in Photoshop, Ben Johnson, I have to say that you are definitely working in the right direction! (In my opinion.) And Kalorlo: interesting depiction—I cannot decide in my mind if they are in combat, or if the red is trying to comfort and support the other, who is falling; my first thought was that the rear figure is female, and it is into her arms that he submits himself, professing exhaustion..

Here's mine, 25 min! Yay! Trying to loosen up a bit, with questionable results..but I'm having fun. (Photoshop & Wacom)

Danielh68 - when I first saw this sketch I though it was super-abstract, but it seems to come into focus more each tme I look at it. Damn impressive.

Fultron - great idea, love the color. The Ton - beautiful lighting! Love it. DJtrousdale - hilarious idea. Lots of great (and a few disturbing :) ) sketches.

03 March 2006, 11:58 AM
Lovati: Comfort and support were definitely what I was going for. They're both supposed to be male, though :)

I thought afterwards that there could be something about youth and age in there too, but it wasn't intended!

03 March 2006, 12:29 AM
Crude, bad anatomy, but... it's 22min :) Alias Sketchbook2 and PHotoshop. (

03 March 2006, 03:00 AM
Great work all!

tservo - great idea :D :shrug:



03 March 2006, 03:06 AM

03 March 2006, 03:09 PM
The Ton - yep - that is a really good one - the light and reflections are fantastic! :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 09:23 PM
Jings! Thanks a lot guys! Your comments are really appreciated... :love:

03 March 2006, 10:26 PM
What I wanted to show here was the esoteric existence of individuality by confronting, wait, no that's not it. I just drew the shadowy bits and put a gradient over it. Would you believe it took me 25 minutes?

PS7/ Intuous3/ 25 minutes
