Here is mine, about 45 - 50 minutes in Photoshop, the drunken Kindom!


Here’s my take on this one. This was done in Photoshop somewhere under 50 minutes…just not sure how long exactly.



Photoshop, 35 mins (all i could spare :frowning: )


Crikey that’s really nice! I really liked the drunken kingdom one too, twas funny.


I went over with 70min, but I really got into this one–had to shadow the towers after the minute mark, then went back and adjusted levels. CS3/Wacom and ref photo for the warrior. I like the mood of this sketch, I might just make it a WIP. Crits are welcome.

NathanielWest: dang I love your sketch! Sorry for using the same color palette–I only noticed after I posted. Wexter: that’s hilarious–I love it!


Thanks Blenderhead!

seili–Looks very nice! Good value structure overall. By all means, no need to apologize…use whatever colors your heart desires!


ok here is my “kingdom”…
photoshop cs2 45 min…
btw awesom work NathanielWest


50 mins


daniel what brush do you use for that and what kind of paint…is that in PS or painter?


It’s done in Photoshop. Mostly just the standard hard brush at two opacities: 40 and 90. Also, I use the smudge tool sparingly to soften some hard edges. I hope this answers your question :slight_smile:


Thanks NathanielWest!

danielh68- I love the play of light in your sketch.


photoshop and wacom tablet. Here is at 50 min.:

and here is about 2 hrs.
i wanted to draw an elephant.
working w/color and composition is hard! i feel like there is something wrong with this picture (that way) but i can’t really put my finger on what it is…


Here’s my contribution. I wasn’t really going to post this one since I decided to ignore the time limit. I did that because painting enviros itself is a big challenge for me and in this early stage the stress of a time limit isn’t helping me at all. However, here it is.

It took a few hours.
