Ok, so there aren't exactly 300 Spartans. Anyways! I realize this isn't really a typical example of Spartan military, but I thought it would be interesting to figure out how they might look if they were zombie Spartans. I also wanted to play around more with the glowing eyes and mouth thing that I tried with The Beast of Yucca Flats.

PSCS, Wacom, around 45 mins.

Dargon brings up a point- The rules say that the daily sketch can be done on any medium, but does that include 3d programs? I've often wanted to use blender on a sketch so that I could get the perspective right. I dunno.

Great sketches so far

well it's a 2D wip subforum but I can't see using 3D here doing much harm.

It would be fun to see what kind of stuff people could spin up with a
3D prog in say .5 to 3 hours

Photoshop 6-8min (but who's counting)
