Now I think about it, this is going to be more of a one sided pummeling once my rather large pink friend gets his groove on. Still i'm sure the people of that city will put up a good fight, so to speak.

About 50mins from start to finish, using Photoshop.

Basicly, in this sketch, I'm trying to describe someone trapped under neath a collapsed building, fighting to gasp a breath, fighting against his/her own fears, fighting the invincible-- death . This sketch is based on the recent catastrophe in China where tens of thousands ppl died from an earthquake .

very often, we are so engaged in the process of fighting that we forget what the purpose was or if there even was one. While to some others, to fight for their survival is a luxury
they mey not have. And it seems to me, everyone that tried to hold on to their hope of being saved and fought to live, put on a good fight.

This sketch took about 80 mins in photoshop, I painted a rescuer originally, but thought it would add to the suspense if I left him/her out, so ended up erase the rescuer and repaint the back ground.

Program used was photoshop and wacom

Hi, this is my first time to post in Daily Sketch Forum. This is such a good way to keep myself practicing painting loosely and at a fast pace. This topic reminded me of the cockfights which have existed in many cultures as a kind of entertainment. The French painter Jean-Leon Gerome also did a painting in 1847 about this old sport. (

Photoshop: 50min
