C'mon lazybones... get your crayons out...

lol I'm sketchin' I'm sketchin' already jeeeeezzz :D

nah been a bit tied up with work and son atm, but I am going through a few ideas...nothing I REALLY like atm but it's all part of the brainstorming motions...will hopefully post something soon though,

Cheers and great start on your behalf too (even if you did do one of the ideas I was also thinking of :rolleyes: )

Welcome Brian,

looking forward to see your sketches. :arteest:

Good luck with the challenge.

OK guess we all have to start somewhere, and I have had a few more ideas while doodling on this.
At any rate some of the strangest behavior I have ever seen has come out of garden often involving moles or dandelions O_o and think I may just do a dandelion take next, or a reverse the on the moles here....all still very much brainstorming atm though

06 June 2007, 01:00 PM
hehe looks great! keep em comming..

06 June 2007, 01:34 PM (

this one just came to me is just a quicky sketch atm but I think I could have some fun with this one

06 June 2007, 01:38 PM
Ha,HA ronffl ronffl!Funny that is!Nice sketches!

06 June 2007, 02:00 PM
love the one with the mole best but they all look great...

06 June 2007, 02:02 PM
haha the monks are great! ding dong! :D

06 June 2007, 03:05 PM (

not easy trying to be funny and make a point at the same time :(

07 July 2007, 08:53 AM (

really really REALY quick and ugly sketch slapped down in the last few minutes (very short on time atm :( ) but it's an idea that has sort of been floating around in my head since friday, inspired a bit buy a line from Pink Floyd's "wish you were here" a bit from things observed...and the rest i will leave open to any rate I will spend some time and come up with decent sketch later....first I need coffee

07 July 2007, 10:48 AM
the last one is really great but i still love the first mole sketch (angle and all makes it very dynamic)...

07 July 2007, 11:00 AM
nahhh that last sketch is just for me to get the rough concept down, the actual composition and perspective will I think be very different and hopefully more dynamic

07 July 2007, 11:38 AM
Looking very promising......keep rolling, mate.


07 July 2007, 03:52 PM
:scream:very interesting indeed,wanna see this futher develope

07 July 2007, 05:53 PM
wanna see this futher develope

yeah me too actually....and it's all Paul's fault for comming up with an idea that actually had ........."meaning" :rolleyes::D.........sort of got me thinking surreal thoughts though and anyway making something decent out of the concept sketch should be bit of a challenge for me :cool:

at the moment though it is back to drawing cars and crowds from really annoying angles :P

oh and I still plan to do the moles and monks at a laters date :)

07 July 2007, 05:09 PM
Some great ideas and descriptive sketches here, particulary like the gold fish bowls - could be very funny and full of surreal meanings...

Looking forwrd to more.

07 July 2007, 12:51 AM
yo, piggy, look:




07 July 2007, 12:55 AM
I actually like this latest one best, its got an emotional element that the mole wars just dont have. Just an odd surreality to it.

07 July 2007, 07:50 AM
yo, piggy, look:




LOL, cool

nothing like sitting on TNT to give you a bang

@ drewfarr, graphicgolem, thanks, just have to see if I can make it work now... personally I am not too sure atm if it will perhaps end up being a bit too cliché

07 July 2007, 08:52 PM
Hi there flyingP! Great sketches, even the last ugly one ;) joke, hehe.. Im waiting to see what u had in mind by this idea, but for now my vote is for mole wars. It looks so promissing and funny as well :) good luck!
