1.30hrs. Some photo ref used from street magazine.
Look out for orange.

06-18-2006, 01:20 AM
Wow, there's some really nice postings today.

Vahn - This creature is disturbingly majestic. Very cool and original.

rawwad - Great rendering. The design's schizophrenic angularity is definitely eye-catching.

cypherx - Loose, emotional and captures a lot of energy. Great movie and a great job on the Robert Smith hairdo.

30 mins...

06-18-2006, 01:29 AM

While watching TV:

thanks - and anyone else who comments.. I rarely comment but it sure does seem lonely to not hear comments - shame on me...

I DO enjoy seeing your work, Vahn - glad to see you are still here - I agree with danielh68.. "disturbingly majestic" is as close as it comes to a good description for this last one

06-18-2006, 03:08 AM
hcross...your work is terrific for using MS paint....I think theres other freeware that might give you more tools.....

thanks - I think part of the reason I like MSPaint is its simplicity - would be better if it had layers, better color tools and smooth gradients -

maybe I'll plug in the Wacom soon and fire up photoshop or something.

feel free to make suggestions

06-18-2006, 01:21 PM
Vahn, that image belongs on the cover of a novel... it is just genius, insane brushwork. It reminds me a bit of princess mononoke's forest spirit

06-18-2006, 02:09 PM
thx cypherx :)

yeah it reminds me too of the forest spirit ... it wasnt planned tough all started with a face at first :shrug:

Well, ya said no time limit - and well, 5 hours later:

I just thought of an orange kimono and found a neat photo reference (because there is no way I'm skilled enough to even try without one) and here is my result.

~5 hours. photoshop

Ended up taking a bit longer than I'd planned, but came out ok in the end.

3hrs / GIMP/ tablet

06-19-2006, 04:23 PM

06-19-2006, 11:37 PM
Hi, here's my first ever DSG entry, a vaguely Andrew Loomis (Fun with a Pencil) inspired creation.
25 minutes with the GIMP:
I hope to do more in the future.


06-20-2006, 07:43 AM
Great job, everyone!
But seriously, that Scissorhand sketch blows my mind...

Painter IX, 43 minutes or so.

I probably should have used a ref, her facial anatomy is SO messed up. :D

06-20-2006, 09:43 AM
open canvas 1.1, time: dunno, was chatting while doodling

06-21-2006, 04:01 PM
Photoshop CS, Wacom, and 70mins.

This is my first daily sketch and probably my first finished Wacom drawing. Going to start doing daily sketches to improve my drawing/painting skills which will in turn help my 3d skills I hope. Thanks.

06-21-2006, 07:25 PM
Okay, it's a little further along than a sketch, but hey, orange inspired me. I didn't even watch the would probably make me cry...

06-21-2006, 11:50 PM

06-22-2006, 02:47 AM
