04 April 2006, 02:20 PM

* You have 15, (count them 15!) 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
__________________________________________________ _______

These are the rules:

* 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.

14 Minutes: (

30 More Minutes: (

After all, one thread can only take so many depressing entries. So, since I was listening to Metric and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs while painting this, what else to do but sex? Thats supposed to be a lace bra and panties but I don't think they turned out very well.

Crimsonstring: For some reason, I really like yours...

Deaderthanred: I love the movement.

Kalakal: Amazing!

Vizon: As much as the colors sting my eyes, I can't take them away.
