Cool idea! Can’t wait to see the ideas you can come up with :slight_smile:


a bit more than an hour, photoshop :slight_smile:


Nice one drumwhore :beer:
For me you’ve allready made the sketch of the week! Everybody put their wacom pens down :smiley:




DrumWhore: Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaah! :applause: Hihihahaha…!

Alice: Your drawings are always great!


Illustrator, about 2 hours. Hope you like it.


Pen & Paper / Photoshop CS / Wacom / 45 min

This is a great topic. I think we should repeat this one every so often.

“Paint a CGTalk member”

Drumwhore: Thats a fun one. Made me laugh. You always give everything such a 3 Dimensional feel. Love your work.

Alice: Great personality in your pic. Its great.

jeroentje: Man, I wish I could do simple line art like that. For some reason it always eludes me. Great job.


You still around :thumbsup:

Nice work as always.


Really cool topic and really cool entries.

Love yours Drumwhore! :wink:
and the rest, ofcourse!

Here’s my try… 45min/PS 7


hey everybody! First time posting here…
pencil & paper =30 min + PS =1hr

Zycho… hope u don’t mind the inspiration :smiley:


…man, not only that I just started sketching due to CGtalk’s speed paints, but you’re also giving TOPICS…THANX! Here’s one of my impression of an average CGtalker… :smiley:

Just a roughly within 4 hour photoshop doodle on the side…and 16tons of fun and all fresh paint! …just added a little bit of something to it…but I guess that only fills up a bit more of the 4 hours…two cigarettes and half a cup of coffee less… :rolleyes:

…just to make sure: The CGtalk member is behind the monitor! working!? :wip:



Painter 8/1 hour

Edit: I forgot to mention that I used a pic of a baby gorilla for this one, though the final image looks nothing like the pic…just thought I should mention that.


Oh… so the idea was not to paint yourself?

I’ll just be over here having a shower then.
BTW… Does terpentine solve oilbased colour?


I thought the idea was to paint any cg talk member…so that’s what I did. I don’t think it really matters what you draw though, these Daily Sketch topics are usually pretty open.


Well, I would heavily refuse to claim that this was a self-portrait, but from the topic “Paint a CGtalk member” I get that we should reflect on our impressions of such! :twisted: Hehehe…just so it is clear, although I’d be shocked if it wasn’t…the member in my image is behind the monitor painting…I could have made some bubbles saying: :eek: “…can we go play now, dad?!” …and…“Yes, yes, sure…hold on a sec!” :argh:


/me takes her dry humor elsewhere


Must… hide…tablet… from evil people

40 minutes on Painter 8.
