I really wanna see who’s gonna be drawing for this topic, since it seems we’re all hooked up on the avatar fc at the moment :slight_smile:


So true. :surprised

I added a ‘sketch’. Check my attachment.


Okay, I know, that one was lame, only a screenshot. But that is as close as you get to Spring Cleaning here. :smiley:


My first post to this forum. After looking previous daily sketches im almost embaressed to put my sketch here. But i hope i get better in future.

While cleaning, better watch out that those skeletons stay in closet

~20 min / Photoshop



Pencil, Intuos II, PS 5. …3 hours :blush:… And yes, I know, it’s lame!
I do need to practice.

Somebody (offline) already asked me what the hell this means, so - Old Winter is lagging behind cleaning after Autumn and now it’s Spring’s turn to clean and she wants him out of the way. And that’s dandruff-snow falling out of his hair.
Like I said - lame…

edit: picture deleted


There is no god in this closet…


Silverwyvern- Your image reminds me of the movie Constantine I just saw yesterday.


I begun this one in the mornig… and maybe it’s appropriate for the theme of this sketch…

 :). Let me know what you think!![](


OK guys I’ll start to cleanup this mess… :wise:

2h photoshop+wacom


Sylverwyvern: that´s pretty funny… I hope it is not inspired in you own experiences :scream:

and it also reminds me of a sequence of an spanish film “amanece que no es poco” when a cop says: I can´t stand there´s no god! and starts shooting at the sun … so funny in spanish: no aguanto más este sindiós!!!

Xillion, I haven´t been able to see yours cause it keeps loading for ages, so… I´ll tell later

Goro, that kick ass :applause: who´s the one that is flying?



Goro: eheheh , I saw it coming! Very funny ‘follow up’!

bealobo: you can see it also clicking on the second entry on my signature if you like ! if not…maybe the site is down…


hehe Thnx!
bealobo that would be you! hehe cause you asked first.


wonderful pic goro!!:thumbsup:


Goro…is that me in the question mark ??


I think Goro got just about everyone there. Cool! :slight_smile:


Ok Goro… then I think I´m flying over the mess :thumbsup: safe in the air yeah!

Xillion, I finally saw it, I like the approach you make to the final image, it´s kind of new for me. It seems very detailed even in the first drawing. I´ve never tried something like that, I usually make the first shapes, lights and details later on.


Still having a bit of trouble figuring out how to post pics on the forums but here goes…

Anywayz… Pencil and Paper Sketch… Scaned into Photoshop CS … Wacom Tablet… mostly Airbrush tool and Eraser Tool… little Burn and Dodge…

Started… 2.15pm… finished… 4.35pm Texas time…


Thanks for letin’ me play…


Actually this is a new approach for me too. This is the first time I try to paint this way. After reading some tutorials (one by Roberto Campus and one by Steven Stahlberg) I decided to use this technique.I tend to loose myself painting directly with colour. This way I can focus more on values and then bring in the colour (painting in color mode with photoshop). I hope it will lead to good results. If anyone here uses this technique I’d gladly hear some hints!!!


if that’s so…I must say I really feel honored that i’m there :bounce:
and being kicked by the Sir himself :bounce:


She’s a beauty Xilion :love: (I couldn’t see the pic before)

I had never seen it done like that - the painting I mean. Got to try it sometime.

norvman - That’s radical, man! :eek: But I think I know what you feel, hehe!!
