View Full Version : CgTalk Daily Sketch 697 THE 40 MINUTE SKETCH: "Lancelot & Guinevere"

05-03-2006, 01:20 PM
"Lancelot & Guinevere" (Hey I love the Camelot Leyend!)

These are the rules:
* You have 40, (count them 40!) 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

Agh! I definitely have an idea for this! *claps hands* :D

I hate to mention it, but where did 696 go?

05-03-2006, 05:07 PM
Ugh, this did not come out how I wanted it to. I may need to try this again.

Photoshop, 80 minutes (I just can't keep track of when my time is up!)
I guess it ain't too bad, but I want to try again anyways.

05-03-2006, 05:15 PM
Not particulary original, and I think I went over 40 minutes (don't remember when I started) so here's a guess at where 40 minutes landed this:

I think I may try another...

Sylanya: Nice colors. Love to see it finished =)

Hi guys, this is one of these cases where you get something totally different of what you tought, I don't like it very much, but I guess is not that bad. 40 min, photoshop + wacom

05-03-2006, 07:50 PM
hi, don't know how long i needed beause interrupted a few times.
but i think under 40 min.
with photoshop

it should show the sittuation where lancelot lies there deadly wounded
after he killed Mordred in a fight. Guinevere ends getting in a cloister
which you can see on the mountain.
lancelot on the left tries to reach here.
on the right his dead enemy (whith his shield lying on him).

Hmm, i watched some monty python movie once. I guess I have to read a bit to draw these two ;)

very nice entries! :thumbsup:

05-03-2006, 08:24 PM
I wouldn't worry about it Goliath, as there is about 500 different versions of the entire Arthur myth anyway :)

05-03-2006, 08:42 PM
I took version #347 :) Didn't get very far, but I think I might run with this one for a while just to see what happens. Lancelot definitely needs a new arm and better pose, he's about to tip over.

Edit: oops, forgot. 40 mins, Painter.

05-03-2006, 10:27 PM
really nice work from everyone so far!

Sylanya - its beautiful...if you wanted something different/better, WOW!
brianl - I really love your strong line work - outstanding!
alfonsoperalta - great use of light - sets a wonderful mood, GOOD JOB!
emcD - thanks for the explanation it helps, the image is very nice too - good perspective work
grondhammer - based on the clothing of Gwen and Lance, I guess this is the modern version? :)

keep up the good work everyone!

05-03-2006, 10:31 PM
thanks for the feedback robin!

And, err, I ended up with placeholder clothing, they will definitely be different when I'm done! haha, poor Guin's dress looks like I should put a spring print pattern on it, eh? :)

35 Mins, Painter. Infidelity is a wonderful thing.

05-04-2006, 01:34 AM
lots of ideas for this's a very fertile topic

40min ---

Oooh Audit - that is really lovely. I think it is my favorite so far. I like how most everything is implied rather than sketched out precisely. Leaves much to the imagination, and I like the direction you've painted for us to take it.

an attempt at a futuristic version, but ran out of time :shrug: The plan was for some mega-city Camelot in the background, but meh.

05-04-2006, 09:35 AM
well then, 45 min ps.

after some more time on and off (most on)

05-04-2006, 11:43 AM
Ok, this one I just kept working on like an insane person, and I should have let it go a long time before I did. I also have no idea how long it took, because I was so absorbed. I do like the colors better though.


05-04-2006, 11:57 AM
Once again, Lucavi, your style is just winning me over.
Love the entries on this one as well

05-04-2006, 12:59 PM
Damn lucavi, your style...Its so unique and every work i see you do is outside the box. I love it.

05-04-2006, 01:59 PM
ps / painter / 2 hrs

05-04-2006, 08:29 PM
I have no idea how long this was, I totally changed it halfway through... it's so unifinished but I figure it's a "sketch" so might as well.

Very nice Roberto. It's not very often that we get to enjoy your art. I hope to see more in the future.
