By
Inspired by Garma


Welcome to the cgtalk sketch group.

We will try to post one of these topics once a day for your enjoyment.

These are the rules:
* Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
* 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.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
* Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
* The topics will be picked at random from the list on this thread
(The author will be given credit). So guys keep them coming.
*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!
* Ill post ANOTHER thread to quantify and track WHO has participated the most on these threads.


Good luck

-Roberto

that picture is cool tho

a few facts:

- I never saw a field with tulips in my life
- there's one place where there are about 5 windmills next to each other, for the rest there are one or two in a couple of cities but that's it.
- weed is allowed and indeed smoked a lot, but it's not like every person in holland smokes weed. Far from that.
- cheese is hot
- we have a lot of canals in the older cities (this is very close to my house )
- it's flat.. and loads of water
- it rains all winter and autumn but summers are nice.
- we have Balkenende
- we call ourselves technologically innovative (e.g. we are smarter. there. )

I do! I do! Gonna draw Garma, Jeroen and Supervlieg smoking pot and eating cheese with windmills in the background. They may or may not be wearing wooden shoes.

I won't really do that.
