Painter, Photoshop for minor colour correction

06 June 2006, 03:05 PM
Oh if i only had more time to color...

15 min exactly.

06 June 2006, 03:54 PM
Woohoo! My favourite film of all time! I had to enter :p

15 minutes in Toshop

06 June 2006, 04:09 PM
15 min in PSCS2 with tablet

06 June 2006, 04:34 PM
Ahh, the film! How could I have forgotten the film!

So here's a second. Painter again -- 16 to 17 minutes. Phew!

and the reference:

06 June 2006, 06:05 PM
Ah I didn't think anyone would go the Tarkovsky route. I am glad to see some fellow fans.

06 June 2006, 06:31 PM
who's tarkovsky?

06 June 2006, 06:32 PM
pencil gimp 15 min

06 June 2006, 07:37 PM
who's tarkovsky?
Russian film director with a very distinctive approach to filming (slow pace, emphasis on photography, symbolism). His films are at the very least visual treats (I personally find them stunningly beautiful).
In case you want to check, Stalker is a good choice to start with, as is Solaris. I should warn you though, many Americans find them extremely slow. =p

15 min, PS, Wacom

06 June 2006, 08:33 PM
This is my first time posting here. I've never actually done an image in photoshop before but it was really fun! I spent 20 minutes in photoshop on the first one and 15 minutes on the second one. I can't wait to do some longer ones with color.

My cat, Zaide, stalking a favorite toy-

After 15 mins:

And, after about an hour:

06 June 2006, 10:21 PM
Amazing work people, some really fantastic stuff in 15 minutes! I struggle to find the motivation with such a short timelimit, which is fairly obvious in the final "quality". Anyways - 10 minutes, PS + Tablet

06 June 2006, 11:51 PM
now i want to see that tarkovsky movie :)

after 15:

after 120:

omg the knights arm is soo short ... ok lets say he was born with that short arm :sad:

06 June 2006, 12:23 AM
Think this is easy? This takes commitment you ungrateful b...

Missed the deadline on this one. Picture it without the rain effect, that's 15. This is 20. Painter and Photoshop.

06 June 2006, 12:33 AM
Vahn, yes you do. ;)

And I like your entries; the first is good for its time (damn, 15' minutes sketching is a real sprint for both hand and brains). I like the colour handling in the second, those cyans are beautifully vibrant. Nice flow and texture, too. Painter, isn't it?

By the way, this wouldn't happen to be Totoro in your avatar, would it? :D

06 June 2006, 01:20 AM
hellas eilidh :)

thank you. Look closely its got photoshop written all over it :D

yeah thats the little invisible guy from totoro :rolleyes:

06 June 2006, 01:21 AM
Not really very happy with this, but I think it would take 3 days of work to really get it where I want it.

06 June 2006, 01:41 AM
15 min, pencil, scanned in kinda odd

06 June 2006, 02:37 AM

15 minutes, on the money. My first mini-sketch challenge, and 15 minutes is a lot harder than it seems! :eek:

Photoshop, Wacom

06 June 2006, 02:46 AM
I totally forgot to check the time limit and I happen to spent more time on this particular piece than usual. Oh, well....45mins.

06 June 2006, 03:43 AM
Ninjas! Photoshop, wacom, meditation timer widget.

06 June 2006, 03:54 AM
Daniel, well worth the run-over! What program/medium did you use? Creepy palette. I chickened out and went monochrome. AND...I spent 25 minutes. I am shamed. But happy. (Isn't that an Alanis Morissette song?)

06 June 2006, 05:17 AM
daniel ,, wow ,, awesome what you did to the light that sorrounds the man it is almost like a character on its own..

06 June 2006, 05:23 AM
Parsec3d & quickreaver -- Thanks for the kind words. By the way, it's all Photoshop.

06 June 2006, 05:27 AM
I would stalk for that kind of knowledge ;)

the guy was painted full canvas and resized after.
no sketch, just rough lines, so I messed up the anatomy big time. :shrug:

06 June 2006, 01:42 PM
omg, my pitiful 15 min attempt:

Well, the first time I drew perspective lines - at least that was a success!

06 June 2006, 12:59 AM
