Sooo.. Is it No time limit, or 50 minutes?

Edit: I'm lost for ideas.. Does anyone have a tip for me?

PS, 23 minutes, my wrist started hurting because I damaged it a couple of days ago.

This is the prelude to the end result of the most extreme envy, I suppose. Came up with a whole world and story while drawing this. The lady walking her three pets isn't a rich snob, shes forced to act that way :/ I want sleeves like that. I don't even think they have openings.

wow samson went all out! great sketch. Grond i love the concept and eishiya thats pretty good for less than 30 mins.

Well i took a different strategy, still not very good but one day ill make something that will wow somebody else. about 80 mins in photoshop!

I hope the facial expression is envy...

I can't compete with these, but here is my humble entry:

1 hour, photoshop, Intuos3

I wanted to practice a face, worked with a reference, but only loosely - I changed some of the features on purpose. :)

05 May 2006, 12:00 AM

Time: 60 Mins
Program: OpenCanvas 3+

True story :cry:

But not where it ends.... ;)

still had a sad ending though :cry:

50 mins ps, used this REF ( - she looked envious.. I pushed it a bit more with the green (so original)

05 May 2006, 12:41 PM
I like samsonsreaper's & digital_embryo, nice stuff!

Here's mine, about 40 minutes (including time spent looking for paintings to hang on the wall- they're by simon dominic brewer (baronimpossible), stahlberg and bergkvist (L-R)

Edit: Her legs are too short. Oh well! Just pretend she's on her way to limb lengthening surgery after her visit to the envy-inducing gallery. :D

Thanx paperclip :). I have only just begun trying to redefine and redefine and redefine etc - its so boggling sometimes trying to become a 'better' artist, esp on this site where you see masters everyday.
I have to say that your progress over these last 2 years has been 'amazing!'. Is this linked to your spiralling post count? might I ask what have you been up to?

And OMG isnt Stahlbergs 'journey begins' just gold? he pretty much had it completed on his 2nd challenge post.

Oh I just found your Challenge entry - Woooah!? way up there on the view count and first in replies? - well thats my posting question answered! - best of luck Paperclip!

That looks great samson, just great

05 May 2006, 05:32 PM
Eh, not exactly what I pictured but what are you gonna do?

About an hour in Photoshop
Ack, I just realized I forgot her eyebrows!!

05 May 2006, 11:47 AM
I didn't have much time to work on this, so it's definitely unfinished, guess that's what happens when you try to paint something before work.

If I finish I'll just change the jpg to the final

Photoshop 7.0
