Photoshop/Painter, ca. 2,5 hours

Thought it would be a good chance to practice cloth and drapery.. I'm not too happy with the result, though. I was aiming for a starker look. I'll probably give it another try tomorrow.

Just a fun sketch. Snow is hard... :shrug:
"The white mill"

Update: I decided some snow on the roof might add more realism, but I don't like it as much.

06-12-2006, 03:28 AM
Polar bears are so cute. Unless you're food. Hour and 20, painter and photoshop.

Wow, really appropriate topic - we had our first snow of the year down to sea level. About 15cm, which was very nice to wake up to.

Really amazing sketches everyone.

old drawing coloured


06-12-2006, 01:09 PM
I haven't finished with this, I wanted it to be of a similar quality to my "dark duke" painting, I went with the same bg colour. Based off of the character Gabriel in Constantine (I think it's pretty obvious, but just in case you were wondering). I do plan on fulling rendering the character, since I haven't done any complete paintings in a while, these threads are always great ways to get ones juices flowing.

photoshop 7
about 3hr 15 minutes at this point

And Quickreaver, that's just gorg!

This has to be collectively some of the best work I've seen in a Daily Sketch thread... maybe ever.

And especially, rawwad, SampsonsReaper, CaveatScoti, quickreaver, hazzadus, cypherx... guys nearly made me choke on my rotisserie chicken!

06-15-2006, 03:35 AM
Man, there are some amazing sketches on this thread. Just to many to name. Really awesome work, though.

I haven't had a go at this for well over a year but I had a day to spare so here's my White.

About 4 hours with a cintiq 21"

06-16-2006, 02:40 PM
There's no doubt that the threads based off of colour are getting some great entries (I think it is because it leaves more room for any given thing).

Daniel, I am just loving yours on this... it's really loose, but compelling, I suppose the more loose something is the more it conveys an emotion, and that's just what yours does for me....just wanted to let you know that.

Also, I'm not a real fan of cars, but I am liking this old chevy!

06-16-2006, 03:32 PM
Sweet Impala, Steve!:thumbsup:
