CgTalk Daily Sketch 663 THE 60 MINUTE SKETCH: "self-portraits"


[i]NEW RULE[/i]

[b]* You have 60, (count them 60!) minutes to do your sketch. [/b]
IF you go beyond the assigned time limit , you have to post WHATEVER you have done after the time has expired, along with the FINAL drawing

Also, I will add a new voting category, called THE FASTEST DRAW
__________________________________________________ _______


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

NO WAY!! How bizarre!! I was looking at this thread last night and I thought “it would be great to have a self portrait day with these time limits!”

Great minds think alike eh Roberto?


Yes we do…
And BTW this is the last chance…

ROBERTO’s BULLHORN:Wanna be IN Roberto’s & Telemaco’s Collab project?



Weird! I just started this yesterday! :smiley:


Which one are you, djtrousdale?


Here you are. 20 minutes:


Brave start there Mathilda, I was thinking of doing a caped masked superhero version of myself… :slight_smile:


23mins, ps, wacom, using photobooth as mirror.

jeroentje: I’m always glad when I see something from you again :slight_smile:


Roberto can we use reff? eg photo or mirror







danielh68: did you change something on your sketch? :curious:


Join the black’n’white penny army. 30 minutes drawing, 20 minutes scanning and uploading. Guess my mac was jealous that I drew it by hand…


yeah, i did. I decided I still had some time to spare so I imported it into ArtRage and moved the paint around some with a palette knife to produce an impasto look. Just an experimentation. Perhaps the original was better, I don’t know.

—tag on another ten minutes. :slight_smile:


i think the original is definateley better since the oily effect looks too much like ‘added afterwards to make it look more like an oil painting’

if wou’d painted like that from the beginning it would have been different, i think.


~½ hr, ArtRage, Painter.

danielh68-> That one is good, but I think the original was great.


JTD- All of them are me, in some way :smiley: But I’m the human, I have a lizard on my head.

This was after 1:45, my first post was 1 hour’s progress.


augustus: wouldn’t have thought you look like that :scream:
nice sketch, it’s so… light! :slight_smile:


augustus & coCoKNIght, thanks for the comments. You’re right, I will probably replace it with the original later (after work). :thumbsup:
