17 minutes, Photoshop.

Some of the people here manage to get incredible textures by using various brushes, so I am trying to slowly let go of my hard round brush..

07-18-2006, 08:15 PM (

15min is really nothing to make an image for a theme like this :(

07-19-2006, 02:04 AM
Mines...15 minutes not long...must work on time management

07-19-2006, 02:57 AM
Haven't done one of these in ages. Photoshop 15 mins.

07-19-2006, 03:11 AM
Ha wanted to do something kinda comical.. or out of the ordinary:D

07-19-2006, 04:23 AM
good stuff

rawwad: Awsome! I love the flow of the brush work and the angular feel some of the strokes have it reminds of the feel of cubeizum of futureizum that and that bit of gradint sets thewhole thing off way to go:applause:

I LOVE IT:) I laughed my A$$ off. great idea, the don a don quijote of the middle ages
"fear not, I'll save you"

07-19-2006, 05:02 AM

07-19-2006, 05:44 AM
15 min, photoshop

07-19-2006, 07:55 AM
Slightly over, I think about 18 min (just had to finish it :D)

~18min / GIMP / Tablet

07-19-2006, 07:58 AM
Wacom/ArtRage 2.0 and GIMP for post processing/layer effects

At fifteen minutes (that is really not long at all)

After another 30 minutes:

CodeNothing, excellent capturing of form
Ashton - druss the legend? shading on clothing is nice
Supermuscle - very distrurbing
Groady - very dark on my monitor the blue and black are almost indistinguishable; This almost makes it look like "scratch art" - when you scratch wax off layers of wax
SpanktheMonk - loose lines keep the picture flowing. Not sure what the weapon is though (cross-bow? spear with guidelines?)
PREDATOR - great start, I would be interested to see what another 15 minutes would do
Vahn - creepy. I like the eyes better in the first one (blank white looks more otherworldly to me), but the rest of the refinement is good.
BrittanyRichardson - cloth work is well done; Tricky pose, too
RobertT - profile is good but there is something odd about the arm. she looks almost contemplative.
rawwad - moody, I really like the feel of this piece; interesting color gradient as background
danielh68 - nice rendering of muscles, appropriately gruesome, as well

07-19-2006, 08:00 AM
Grrr...internet being sucky today. Ignore this post.

07-19-2006, 08:02 AM
Photoshop, Wacom - went five mins over the limit.

07-19-2006, 09:37 AM
This took me exactly 15 and a half minutes ;) in deep paint 2. The thing with these sketches is it reminds you that you still have a lot to master.

07-19-2006, 11:30 AM
Took me around 17 minutes :) in photoshop 7

07-19-2006, 12:01 PM
not much but this is what to came to my mind... flash 10 min...

07-19-2006, 02:42 PM
Just couldn't let it go. Another 2 hours. Pencil. Phtotoshop.

07-19-2006, 05:51 PM
I'm getting better, but I have to let go of my round brushes as well...

This is my first, 15-min only sketch. I like it enough that I think I might finish it:

07-19-2006, 07:39 PM
wow - this tread is awesome - great work everybody... 15 min damn...

well, this is the coolest character from the big fiasco movie "JUDGE DREDD"

PS/wacom 13min... no ref. but I saw the movie 3 nights ago :)

07-19-2006, 09:25 PM
Congratulations, everyone!
You guys did a great job with 15 minutes only.
It's really difficult in my opinion.
Done in 15 minutes at PS.
Retouch a lil bit and that's what I got 35 minutes later.

07-19-2006, 09:48 PM
Wow, there are some really great 15 min slayers here! 15 min is pretty rough.
Vampire Slayer anyone?

15 minutes, Art Rage 2.0. Was originally going to blame the cat, but started to wonder if maybe someone else had eaten the canary.

07-22-2006, 12:04 PM
25 mins, apocalyptic feeling

07-22-2006, 01:52 PM

Got to think of the beast slaying the men in Monty Pythons Holy Grale.

Further progress (more than 15min) and it looked like this:
