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.

04 April 2006, 04:35 PM
Clarification : Are we suppost to draw what we think we see?

Sorry , i'm not exactly with it today.

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

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

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

04 April 2006, 10:53 PM
More 30 minutes....

04 April 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 April 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 April 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 April 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).

Scary! I see a burning god...what do you see?
45min painter

04 April 2006, 08:06 AM

04 April 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:)

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 April 2006, 12:30 PM
It's some kind of angel!

Photoshop, 34 minutes

04 April 2006, 10:07 PM

04 April 2006, 11:01 AM

04 April 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 April 2006, 07:57 AM
hi, paperclip. thanks.
I drew it, because it is the only thing that I see (
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 April 2006, 10:52 AM
Ha, I saw a Hot Dog on a stick, maybe I will attempt to scetch it.
