10 minutes is just about long enough for me to draw 1 line, well, okay then, 4 lines. Speed is a sketching skill that needs to be practiced too I guess.

10 min PS CS2:

Trying to draw a line can be harder than it seems.
10 mins, Photoshop

This took me about 20 min, I guess I went a little over the limit. The time ended before I put in the scratch as my line.

07 July 2008, 02:05 AM
10 mins. The line you never want to read...

07 July 2008, 03:39 AM

End of the line

Done in 10min using gimp. Sorry about the depressing topic, just the first thing that came to mind. Colours are a bit too bright would have liked extra time to do better lighting but that's what you get for 10min.

07 July 2008, 11:05 AM
Very nice Daw! I like your style :thumbsup:

PS CS2 - 12 min

07 July 2008, 01:27 PM

Hey- you didn't miss the joker. You can still do that one. You can do any of them from 1492 and up. You can sketch for any topic that hasn't been put up on a vote thread yet.

Really? Double d'oh. Thanks for the heads up! ( ' u ' )b

Did this in 10 minutes on Colors! on my Nintendo DS. This should give you an idea of what opening night looked like in my town for the new batman movie. I went a couple days after opening and the line to get in still stretched around the block..and was three people wide.
