  • 640 x 480 / 480 x 640 OR 800 x 600 /600 x 800
  • 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.
  • 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.

Good luck

where’s 58? :slight_smile:


1h ps+wacom


2h / photoshop.
I kinda suck at robot design… they’re looking… oldskool :confused:
Hope you like it anyway :slight_smile:


Hey I like your choice of colors, Drumwhore. I like yours alot too, made in uterus, though it took me a few seconds to ‘read’ it.

: )


Drumwhore… your Picture is AMAZING! Yet again another great pic.

I have never been one for mechs so here is mine… about 3 or 4 hours on Photoshop… Wacom too.


Nice submissions everyone. Drumwhore, I like the way you showed metal, looking forward to the day I’m able to do that :smiley:

3 Hrs in PS w. WACOM - it was 600x800, but I cropped it down. I seem to be doing that on every single sketch, think I should just start drawing at 1024 x 768 and crop THOSE.


I had a slightly different take on today’s topic.
Hope you like it. 3 hours in ps / wacom

1- 1 1/2h


Heh, here’s a hint. Don’t try to draw and talk on IM at the same time. O : )

Took me nearly three hours 'cuz I was yakking for most of the time. PS/Mouse
It’s not finished, but… I’m done with it. It’s 4:30am and I have places to be tomorrow. yawn

The few that are here are awesome. Nice use of color and perspective, Mr T. I liked this topic… 'cuz, while yeah my robot looks horrible… my humans are worse. Heheh.


I’m really liking DRUMWHORE’s pic, it has a really good look and feel to it. I don’t mind the old school look at all, gives it a bit more character. Way to go!


hehe thanks for the kind words! :smiley:



this one is 2.5 hours PS
