I always had to be the goalie ... They didn't like me to play with them ... I just couldn't figure out why.

10 minutes on a Cintiq with AliasStudio.

Too late, people.....

06 June 2006, 04:02 PM
What can I say....I have kids. But that first sketch, the goalie, looks like my eldest son. (Before the nerd-created nuclear winter, that is...)

yeah, i was wondering the same thing:rolleyes:

06 June 2006, 07:54 PM
Okey, I'm a bit slow, but if I want to "join" in on these sketches how do I do it? Do I just read the title, sit down for the time that writes and then post my work? that's all?

I thoght that nerds and geek were practicaly the same, but looking in wikipedia they have A LOT of definitions and categories.

Hereīs my 10 minutes - Photoshop

phew, the tablet is melting.
I imagined there was a mad client on the phone asking for a sketch, and I actually got nervous when the time was running out!:eek::)

Itīs amazing how a limited time makes you visualize the entire drawing before start.



06 June 2006, 08:06 PM
Okey, i'm gonna give it a try, but before i do that...

This is Andrew (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer). He spraypainted the Death Star from Star Wars onto the side of their van in perfect detail, from memory. I thought he was an ideal candidate for this thread :P

10 mins in photoshop

06 June 2006, 09:23 PM
oh damn, I was late. :)

Who said this about building a nuclear reactor out of a paperclip? :p

Painter, 12 minutes!

06 June 2006, 09:42 PM
Probably spent too long, and it turned out a little boring. Perhaps more of a geek than a nerd, also.

06 June 2006, 02:39 AM

doH! i guess this is a geek

06 June 2006, 11:08 PM
aLoneCuzzo- I'm confused. What does "hello, world" mean? I don't mean to be rude by asking, I just don't understand. Nice sketch though. :thumbsup:

A program which prints something like "Hello, World!" on the screen is generally the first thing taught in many computer programming courses. Basically, they are just words that a lot of people like to use for testing output when programming.

aLoneCuzzo- Whats going on around the guys head?

Cool sketches guys. :D
