"lots of eyes"

You have 30 mn for your sketch. IF you go beyond the assigned time limit , you have to post WHATEVER you have done after the time has expired, along with the FINAL drawing.

Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
They can be done on any medium.
If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
You can post an entry at anytime for the topic presented on this thead BEFORE the voting thread for THE WEEK has been posted.

Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.

30min in PS

About 30min in Painter and CS3, though I scribbled for 10 before that on something that didn't work.

Edit: I just noticed my eyes look alot like the green guy from Monsters Inc. That wasn't intentional--but if it hits the no-derivative rule (?) I'll take it down. (What, by the way, are the guidelines there?)

30min photoshop CS2/wacom (intuos 2 i think)

used my personal textures I took. Here. (

Used the last 2 minutes to slap on some textures and decay to try and cover up the copy-pasta skull. I got too caught up in details as I always do... resulting in a very flat image... Darn, I didn't even get to add the dragonfly wings to them.

ref used f ( bone structure.

edit: Amazed at daw and Her0d's work.

Heh.... Her0d and Daw could almost belong to the same weird universe. Great colours guys.

I once again wimped out of colour and went straight to usual crappy-scribble land. :D

CS3 - 30mins

I went for a eye collector character concept and it turned out to be a bit over ambitious for just half an hour. :]

30 min

1 hour 20 min

gah I really needed one of those NTL topics for this one :) Anyway I spent about 20 minutes doodling with my pencil and then had to spend another hour or so on the pencil thing, then I colored it in Photoshop for about 40 minutes. Steps are below.
