Nice work Goro i like the way you often manage to get the right mood/scene across with quite minimal paint!

What happened to Sketch 39? Or am I going silly?

Well this is a first time for me, tools pretty limited at the mo, so i just used flash to sketch out my idea. Hope that isn't breaking the rules.

I also have no access to my FTP to upload so it's an attachment for the mean time.

About 20 mins work

Just realised i put the sun on the wrong side for the shadow!!! aww well silly me....

edit edit...
Fixed the sun because it bugged me too

Nice one goro, I like how the pic suggests so much with so little.

TheFreak: I like it, the sun on the wrong side makes it slightly funny.

This might be the last sketch for the upcoming 6 weeks: I'll be off having holiday this weekend and I'm moving so I might be too busy.

So much for daily sketch #39

The tower

Photoshop/Wacom/1 hour.

I had a hard time coming up with a sketch. But towers and swamps go together pretty well, so there you go.

Garma: Nice one. Dont stay away too long.
Drumwhore: Good colors.
Squee: Again great chaos. How about introducing some colors into it?

Great work to everyone so far. Hopefully I'll get a chance to participate on this one...

Painter, little over an hour.

I haven't been able to see any of drumwhores pictures this far, MyIE2 must have a grudge against that domain or something. Judging by your comments, I'm obviously missing something... Anyone else have this problem?
