pretty sloppy line work :(

Photoshop, ~110mn



02-26-2009, 06:45 PM
this works right? :surprised PS, 3 hrs


02-27-2009, 02:28 AM
Here you go, I think it took me about an hour. Done in Sketchbook Pro. Not really how I wanted it to turn out, specifically the wings look pretty stupid as I was trying to think of a way that a snake like creature would propel itself through an airless space.

EDIT: I just noticed that the topic was to draw animals IN space equipment.. oopsie.. sorry!!


02-27-2009, 04:03 AM
made another quick one. this was really fun tho i don't know how well we are following the topic

Photoshop, ~40mn



02-27-2009, 05:21 AM
A little over an hour in Painter


It's the Spacey Squid! He's just waiting for someone to name a Linux version after him. In case you can't tell, this is a squid with a jetpack and rayguns. I'm sorry the drawing is so rough. I didn't have time to do something more polished.

Had a lot of fun with this one! Spent close to 3 hours start to finish. Photoshop

lol, Grantmoore :applause:

About 2.5 hours in photoshop. I should note, I'm not familiar to this kind of art, and I didn't want to spend 50 years shading it and making it look realistic or cleaning up my shoddy lines. lol. This is my kitty named Alice, btw, and she's SUPER cute. She kind of has this silly cross eyed looking face (a lot like bruce willis' white cat in the fifth element) with gorgeous blue eyes, and I love her. Also, I used a ton of brushes by paulw, so... I'm going to link his dA.
Although admitedly, I do use other brushes by other people that I don't remember who they are or where they came from. :hmm: I do make my own though! I waste a lot of time doing that. Heh.

Here is a redux of my entry.

Hi everyone.
So here is my sloth turn. Hope you'll like it and looking forward to comments, if it's not too late.
Dapride I love those conveyor belts and dog's expression ;)
Geta-Ve: I can't keep up your thoughts, but it's pretty crazy.

Done in PS, took about 2-3h

Geta-Ve: I can't keep up your thoughts, but it's pretty crazy.

First off, great job on your entry. Love it. Second I am not quite sure as you what you meant by that sentence? Maybe you didn't understand redux? I simply meant I redrew part of my image to coincide more with the topic.

If that wasn't what you meant, my apologies! :D

Great job to everyone!

03-04-2009, 08:30 AM

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.
And nevermind about that sentence, I already got it.
But it's still crazy - in good meaning:)

@mamlas: Ah! Thanks :D

@floatingrunner: Wow that is pretty slick. You should just add something mechanical to one of the constillations :p

This was the first thought that came to mind... You can never go to the zoo without seeing a hippo or rhino blowing crap all over with their tails..
55 min Photoshop. I wanted to spend more time on it but never got around to it.
