nice work, everyone.

Brittany, that's very beautiful and elegant.


07-14-2006, 01:55 AM
45 mins + ps

1 brush 2 colours for my interpretation of Black and Red: Espaņa
I know, it would have benefited from some white, but I decided to stick with 2 tones just for the challenge...
About 30-35 minutes

Funny how Brittany represented what I would have drawn for "pink" if I'd had the guts and/or time. :) Nice work ^^

And I love the movement on danielh68's piece. Although on my screen his red is actually orange...

May-lea, I saw your 'pink' sketch. I must say, I like the idea in pink too - it gives it a very gentle, delicate look. Beautiful. And I especially like the bull in your piece here, and I think it's fine without any white.

And thanks, Daniel. I love the figure in your sketch - it's so emotive.

Simple rat. 15 Minutes, Painter.

07-14-2006, 06:40 AM
My first post in a long time. I like the time limit... forces you to go fast and just get the idea out.


07-14-2006, 07:53 AM
@xodibox: thats really good that reminds me of the last scene of obi wan vs anakin on that lava planet. :thumbsup:

Thank you ^^

And I love the new entries. I's funny because just before mainting my sketches a mouse got trapped in the mouse trap. It's the killing kind of mouse trap, I hate them but my parents keep on putting them everywhere in the house. Somehow that mouse survived, but will probably be handicaped for the rest of its life. So I took care of it, put it in a box in a safe place waiting for the moment to release it outside the next day. Considered about drawing a mouse for this sketch, but decided otherwise. And today, I've just release the mouse, and I see Silverwyvern's entry!

Yay for rodents!

Moral of the story: Spend time on your base shape/sketch instead of drawing it in 2 seconds, because or else you'll spend 80% of your time trying to actually make a weird blob of color look like a banana, and fail miserably at it. :rolleyes:
