1h10, photoshop. Focused on the metal look and texture, sorry for the lame composition :wink:


Still nice, Drumwhore, as usual!


thanks PowerChild :slight_smile:



Hehe, nice one Drumwhore, because of the time here I always miss out on this, Im sick home from school today, so…yeah >.<


Might be a little late, but heres mine…

Whats more fun than a barrel of monkeys?

A burning barrel of monkeys.


What’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys? A Penguin and a barrel of monkeys! And Stretch Armstrong! In a Bouncy Castle! Woo!

1.20 hrs in PS with a WAC-c-C-c-COM

nah, I’ll update it - though thinking of something more fun than a barrel of monkeys might give me an aneurism.


Hi, I’ve been a mouse user all my life, until now that i decided to get a wacom tablet. So this is my test drive… I’ve been using my wacom two days now… daily sketch will be exelent to practice…
btw, exellent barrel drumwhore :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

More fun than a barrel of monkeys… is to go check what the other barrels are full of.
2h15min PS/ wacom


well this is my try of today:

what more funny than a barrel o monkeys?? radioctive monkeys!! haha, well, i drew one monkey while at work, and it looked quite fun, then in the bus coming to my house i drew a sketch (i prefer the sketch on paper, but i dont have a scanner!) so, i sat dawn for 2 hours in photoshop, and i got his one…

flatuloso: nice penguin and concept haha, very “surrealistic” and funny!
Drumwhore: yeah! beer rules!! and nice texture, its hard to achieve those kind of effects. but you got it right!


here’s a quick one done in photoshop. worked on it for about 35 min, decided sleep is better. i think it’s worth spending more time on later.


Flatuloso: that was hilarious
this is a funny topic for everyone else as well, good work


I’m guessing, please note, GUESSING, that a barrel of Playboy bunnies, could, if the situation was right, possibly be more fun, than a barrel (wooden, that is) of monkeys, not counting the Lemur of course, which is just one big barrel of laughs really.


Yes! Monkeys rock! great job everyone!

Drumwhore, Is it safe to say that your taking over where Goro left off? Lately you have been rocking hardcore.

It looks great!


Now what the hell is so funny about that?
