Ey cool topic. Should bring up some cool entries
  10 October 2004
Seems like I'm the first one...

Today I tried the trial version of OpenCanvas, and after 1h or so I discovered that I couldn't save files, so this is just a screen capture... I found opencanvas really interesting, I like it, and I would like it even more if I could save files, hehehe...

The Age of Exploration

I guess I may have kinda slightly distorted the original idea, but anyway, here is my contribution
About one hour and a half, using Photoshop and a Wacom.

first time's always the best

Well, time to bring that thread's quality level down a bit...

Here's mine.
a lot of "first times" for me :
* It's the first time I post a drawing here
* it's the first time I paint using my brand new wacom A6
* and I guess I can say : it's the first time I try to "paint"... As last time I tried to, it meant drawing small squares and cubes while talking on the phone. Got no training whatsoever and am just trying to learn by watching you draw thanks to the WPEs you post.

Hence why I've decided to post a wpe everytime I post a drawing made with OC, who knows, it might interest someone someday . Here's the wpe for babywalk

That's why I hope you don't mind me using these wonderful sketch of the day threads to start learning how to paint.

before I forget : openCanvas 1.1, Wacom graphire 3, about 15mn, and some guts to dare posting that in a thread frequented by so many talented artists (Taron, Goro, Supervlieg, Chris, etc... too many to name them all, I've been lurking for weeks admiring what you people are able to make with a wacom and 1h of your time and talent, but you showed me a good reason to at least TRY )

Last point, english's not my mother tongue, so if I write something you don't understand, it's probably because I confonded 2 words

Hey Baramin, looking at your first run I must say it seems nearly unlikely that you were just doing telephone-doodles before. It's a great demonstration of talent for that reason and I'm excited to see you explore and grow here as well.

h311fire (Kelvin) - It looks like you are still having trouble. You need a place on the internet to upload your files to (ftp them to). Then you insert the picture in your post by using the picture icon (yellow with mountain above) and enter the URL of the location where you put your file.
Also, just to make sure you know...your first 5 posts will be reviewed before they post.

elmasfeo - I love it! I went to Spain and Portugal a couple years ago and found fascinating all the history of the great Spanish and Portugese explorers. I didn't know till then that almost all of them set sail for the "New World" from Lisbon. They have a fabulous monument to the exploers there!

Ephesus - really nice work!
Waugh - I was thinking along similar lines, now I have to come up with something else. REally like how you handled the topic!
Baramin - really good first post/paint! This thread is for just what you are saying, practice and feedback. I'd say you have an excellent start, just keep working to strengthen your skills and sharpen your edges, etc. Also, your English is VERY good - far better than my French (I really don't speak French at ALL) Good job!

Taron333 - WOW! You really knocked my socks off with this one! I keep looking at it and looking at it. Just amazing! I love the "reflections in the glass" effect you did and the puzzled look of the scientists. I bow down with humble respect at your greatness!!

This topic reminded me of cats and their curiosity, especially when they're very young. So here's my image. Photoshop/Wacom/2.5 hours (reference used for the cat's face and the butterfly):

Hehe Waugh, I had also thought of something along the same lines, but dropped it...

Ephesus, love that picture, so simple, yet it conveys such a sense of scale. And Taron333, what can I say...

El más feo (si sos así de feo? ), I wonder what they're gonna find when they come ashore... and how everything is going to look 500 years later

Baramin, nice first try... I'm also in the same situation as you, trying to get the hang of this digital painting...

1 hour PSP Wacom

Nice entries so far.
Taron: nice reflections, well done
Jasel: I like the composition, nice pussy
Elmasfeo:nice boat, we were thinking the same way I guess...
Waugh: hehe I like the boy's expression
Epheseus: Cool idea, nice ship. I like the background. Good job.
Baramin: Nice idea, welcome aboard
