Photoshop - 42-44 mins approx.

This is my son and our dog :)

Sorry that it's bad, this is the second time I've ever drawn live -anything- let alone people and/or animals.

PS, 40 minutes. No ref.

This is my boyfriend Dirk (right) with our mutual best friend Tom. They have a theatre group together and are considered by most people to be completely nuts. Sometimes I think they are, too. I love them both to bits.

35 minutes:

Plus 1 hour:

Man it's tough drawing people you know really well...because you know if something's not quite right and so it takes you a long time to get it right...

Everyone's out of proportion in mine. Oh well.

Was going to draw a little comic, where Jhonny finds Thom and plays whit him, but I didn't have time for it.
For anyone interessed in the (dumb) 2. second story:
Once upon a time there was a little boy named Jhonny. Poor Jhonny had no friends, nor any playmates, then one day he saw a boy sleeping next to an old car in a rather bad condition. Jhonny woke the stranger up and asked if he would want to play whit him, ignoring the rather big wound in the strangers head. The stranger got happy, for neither he had any friends to play whit, and introduced himself as Thom, but as time passed, Thom started to loose body parts and hair, he even started drool and smell strange.
The two remained friends even whit Thom's decaying contition. They were best friends :) (so wery cheesy x.x)
it was the first thing that popped to my mind. Sorry if it doesn't fit

Great sketch and story my Lady, but your spelling of Johnny...could that be a norwegian thing?

@ JTD: There is no evolution. There's just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.

Stupid "H"'s... we don't even use them half as often as you guys so I tend to misplace them D:

Well, this is my first time using open canvas... just playing around. forgot to time it but i'm pretty sure it's under the time limit.

winter friends:

I don't hang out with many people.. so I'd rather call the nature around me my mates^^ it was either that or my pc and the tablet, so ...

LabyrinthineMind: Great job! especially for being your second time drawing from life!

Maladie: You really captured their kooky nature.

Vizon: Well done...maybe next time you can save at the time limit so we can see what you had.

LadyMedusa: Great story! I love it. The image really captures the feel to!

mybutterflyiris: Those two look chilly. I like the paint style.

ChristinaRH: I totally understand...just look at my sorry friend:)

Ok Here's mine my best friend MOE 45min in Painter.

Vizon: Well done...maybe next time you can save at the time limit so we can see what you had.

Well, I thought about it when I hit 45 min, but I didn't have the two fellas on the left's pants colored at all nor any shading or any texturing. Basically I felt it looked worse than the black and white sketch I did in 35 minutes and there's no rule saying you can't post something under the time limit. So I decided to not rush the coloring part and then count the minutes when I was done. They're me mates, man...I cain't skimp on me mates! Arrr!

Vizon:its nice to see the progress thats all, its fun to see what you had at the time limit and then how it turned out...but I can understand if you didn't want to show us your freinds with their pants off.

Or in a comics style:

Yowzers, it's clear that I'm not nearly as good with a tablet as I am with pencil and paper... but I'm determined to get better! Anyway, here's what I have after 45 minutes:

Wacom Graphire 4x5, Painter IX, using coloured pencil tool. Maybe I'll keep working on this and see if I can improve it a wee bit.

After an extra 41 minutes, still not great, but a bit better, I think:

Black holes do not affect Chuck Norris...they know better.

Ahhh we could do this all day.:)

But back to the topic: I'm a little disturbed by ButchMakora (I keep laughing though). And I agree with you LadyMedusa - stupid "H's"!!!
