They can be done on any medium.
If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.

You can post an entry at anytime for the topic presented on this thead BEFORE the voting thread for THE WEEK has been posted.

"Tutting With NVG's"

App: Painter IX
Time: 25 Minutes
Tools: Vine Charcoal, Pencil & Blender Stump

'Tutting' is a sub-style of "popping" a style of dance where you rapidly flex and relax your muscles along with the beat. Tutting specifically is a style where you have a kind of egyptian drawing post with bend wrists. I'm over simplifying the sub-style, others could exmplain it better.

NVGs = Night Vision Goggles. I tried to use a simplified set of colors to complete the idea of late night without getting to complex with colors. Dunno how successful it is, oh well :)

great lighting in a lot of these... paperclip, wonderfully done!

here's mine, 35 mins (10 over, ack, read it wrong) in painter 8, conté and Jinny's skip chalk... my ISP's been up and down today, hopefully it's up for good now.

05 May 2006, 09:37 PM
I really want to get back in the daily sketch groove...

25 minutes in Photoshop CS2 (with my Wacom Intuos2 12"x18")

05 May 2006, 02:19 AM
PhotoImpact's paintbrush. No layers. 20 Min.

Waiting. Smoking down to the filters. All for some one who will never come.

05 May 2006, 04:44 AM
painter -about 20 min

with some effects added...


05 May 2006, 05:02 AM
25 minutes Painter

05 May 2006, 05:17 AM
another -more like an hour - darn!


05 May 2006, 06:07 AM
25 minutes 2 colors and a spatula Artrage 2.1

05 May 2006, 07:16 AM
OpenCanvas + ArtRage for coloring at 25 minutes:

After another hour of coloring:

Parsec3d - interesting technique. I like what this does to the color palette. I may have to give the spatula a try...
krpolak - The texture of real media will tell. Good composition, Very poiniant.
Ashton - the more I look at this, the more I like it. Framing of the big man is well done, and the houses crowding in make a nice claustraphobic feel.

Two natural media entries on one topic. Must be late!

Thanks GauntMan ,, the trick is to set preasure to 0% then it will act as a color blender

Late night, when the bats come out (I was taking photographs of them all evening yesterday)

Alternatively titled "Fun with Fur Brushes"

The whole image is drawn with fur brushes, even the signature :P Had a reference initially, just for the sketch though... I tend to get too engrossed by the time it comes to colours to keep referring to a photograph, so if there are any bat experts here, sorry about the anatomy :P

25 minutes in photoshop :D

I wanted to go for a slightly creepy feeling. I like the textures that painter gives without having to change many settings. Great submissions so far. Thanks for looking!

23 minutes in Painter IX.

06 June 2006, 06:20 AM
Gauntman - That's probably what I looked like at the hour I finished mine...

Howlinghorse - ...You make me jealous. Real jealous. I love the sense of movement and texture.

06 June 2006, 02:24 PM
GauntMan, thanks :)

I did also digital version, if you or somebody would like to take a look:

Great entries!! Grondhammar if you finish this more please post, I would love to see the finished results!

06 June 2006, 03:03 AM
For some reason when I put things in photobucket, they either load with an red x or later show up with one, after showing correctly...or inthe case of one I linked to on my blog, it says the image has been removed when it hs been there for a while
25 mins

PS--It is a pig sneaking into USDA
