View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 686 THE 45 MINUTE SKETCH: "Rorschach Blot"

Rorshach Blot

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

Remind them that they can flip it around too, because you see different things from different perspectives:
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

I saw a sleepy cowboy. Now that I look again, the blot looks more like Captain Hook.
3-4mins, PSCS2, Intuos2 6X8, laptop.

Clarification : Are we suppost to draw what we think we see?

Sorry , i'm not exactly with it today.

04-22-2006, 05:48 PM
Snake Charmer pencil/15min. May spice up when I get home

04-22-2006, 07:27 PM
I think it's about 35 mins, around there somewhere :) Photoshop, no ref but kinda inspired by a flower I saw in the color theory thread here I saw yesterday. Wasn't looking at it though when I did this.


04-22-2006, 08:24 PM
Not very imaginative, but I was in a mood for drawing fires and explosions :)
Photoshop, 45min.

04-22-2006, 08:31 PM
this is a really cool idea. lets have some more of these.
heres mine, i saw some kind of shogun, warrior guy....thing
cant wait to see everyone elses

04-22-2006, 10:51 PM
i didnt have time to do anything proper but i thought i'd share what i saw in the image with a quick sketchover.
if anyone else wants to use my idea and do a proper drawing i dont mind.
someone on a type of crucifix type thing or something to that effect, releasing his inner spirit before death or something

04-22-2006, 10:52 PM
first 45 min.photoshop

04-22-2006, 10:53 PM
More 30 minutes....

04-23-2006, 01:10 AM
This was an awesome subject, it's amazing to see how different we all percieve the image.
Great sketches everyone. Here's mine, Corel PSP - about 1 Hr.


04-23-2006, 01:16 AM
hey y'all
heres mine.
about 40 mins
but now when i look at it i see ron jeremy :P
heh heh



04-23-2006, 02:11 AM
Here you go, my first piece in some time . Sorry it's a bit blurry, well it's a sketch.
I sort of lost track and i guess around 30-40 mins >.<

It's intresting to see every body elses interpretation.


04-23-2006, 02:22 AM
Wow, with thousands of suggestions I'm surprised to see mine come up so soon. It's neat seeing everyone's interpretations! Here I'm sticking with my original idea that I can't stop seeing in the top version (I see a baboon in the bottom one).

I know, kinda sick and twisted. That's my brain I guess. Must have been a REALLY bad dog is all I can say. Or else this guy really hates his owner.


Oh yeah - Painter, ~45 min (I say about 45 because I went over a few minutes because my new layers kept coming out white instead of transparent. Do technical difficulties count as part of the time it takes to paint I wonder...)

Vizon :|.. I wonder what a psychiatrist would say :P

That I'm obsessed with violence and animals maybe? That's not too far off. Though I do have my limits on violence. I mean though I had fun with Mortal Kombat fatalities as a child, I don't draw people ripping out each other's spines for fun. That'd be my brother. ;D No really. Whereas he's obsessed with zombies and gore fests, I prefer some sort of emotional significance to my bloodshed. You know - Gut-wrenching story-telling drama (for the most part).

04-23-2006, 03:24 AM
Scary! I see a burning god...what do you see?

45min painter

04-23-2006, 08:06 AM
35 min. tablet & photoshop

04-23-2006, 11:23 AM
Yet again some inspiring enties there today, this took 30 mins in photoshop.
Here's my take on the blot, a snake waiting in the grass(does that mean I'm paranoid then?!:eek:)

04-23-2006, 12:22 PM
35 min. tablet & photoshop

This is my favorite one so far, probably because I have no idea how he drew that conclusion. Plus, it's a funny elephant. :D

04-23-2006, 12:30 PM
It's some kind of angel!


Photoshop, 34 minutes

04-23-2006, 06:33 PM

04-23-2006, 10:07 PM

Oh I see it. It's in the flipped (second) version of the blot. Great!

04-24-2006, 11:01 AM

04-24-2006, 08:31 PM

ps | 30mins

04-24-2006, 09:49 PM
NICE ONE VAHN, THATS A FUNNY INTERPRETATION, NICE PAINTERLY USE OF BRUSHES TOO (whoops caps lock on!) It looks like you used painter rather than photoshop to do this piece, anyway good work.

04-25-2006, 07:57 AM
hi, paperclip. thanks.

Funny, I was seeing an elephant too.

Packing up to move, so no time to participate this week, but it's great to see everybody's work, as always.

04-26-2006, 10:52 AM
Ha, I saw a Hot Dog on a stick, maybe I will attempt to scetch it.
