View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 685 THE 35 MINUTE SKETCH: "when you lost it for the first time...

04 April 2006, 12:43 PM
Where you were when you "lost it" for the first time. <--interpret that any way you like.
JTD (dont look at me!)

We will try to post one of these topics once a day for your enjoyment.

These are the rules:
* You have 35, (count them 35!) 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.
* 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

The first time I.... lost my freedom.

35 mins (I'd like to finish it at some point though), photoshop 7.0 and wacom tablet

My first time posting here! Daily sketch, such a brilliant idea. I hope everything's ok... Feel free to kick me if I've done anything stupid. I am a bit of a horse addict, so the subject here came to mind straight away, hehe! The validation thing could cause this to be delayed, so er... sorry if its posted at a really weird time, or something.

LadyMedusa: Wow nice sketch! looks like real ink.

Rawwad: nice work as usual! I have a knife like that to...but this time I lost it for good...they took it away from me at the airport.

Here's mine...30min painter

We all go a little crazy, sometimes.

In this case, 30 min with Photoshop.

Wow, great light rawwad! Excellent work all.

Hopefully I haven't lived long enough to where this images makes no sense... 30 mins, Painter.

04 April 2006, 06:38 AM
Ahh, I remember it well...18mins. Art Rage.

howlinghorse - Welcome! Everythings great, nothings stupid. This is the DSG! What I love about this place is the DSG is an idea, simple as that. The first thing that pop's in to your head... what inspires you, create it. It's great that the validation thing went fast, great image. But reading back over this, I'm hippy drunk and should go to bed. Welcome again and awesome work to all.

ps GSmiley - Thanks for the "everyone" critique (david day), those take a lot of time, but are invaluable, greatly appreciated. And as for todays sketch... that why I have no kids. Funny for a drawing. But man my wife would be pissed!

edit: Toniko (member.php?u=158842) Just saw your "everyone" critique, you people are cool.

04 April 2006, 12:29 PM

04 April 2006, 02:12 PM
Beautiful, Grondhammar! They are such pretty marbles, too....

04 April 2006, 05:10 PM
Thank you for the welcome, Zyrinx! I agree, this is a great way to practice and improve, and everyone is so creative, I can hardly believe it.

04 April 2006, 12:18 AM
Good work all!

welcome howlinghorse - - really nice work!
Rawad, LadyMedusa - good

I figure the FIRST time was really early on, as babies have almost NO control of their emotions.
