I just got my Wacom today (YAY YAY :love:) I’m going to jump right in and join the daily sketch group so I can get used to using it and to devlope my style a bit more. Awsome forum idea :thumbsup:


Hi, my name is Steve and im a student.

As i drew more and more with pen and paper, i became interested in CG.

I want to do something like 3d with maya but people i know suggest me with continueing with my drawing for now. Therefore I would like to participate in this daily drawing but Im very bad at it so i problery wont post everyday.

I just have some questions to you all. Since I dont have scanner, i would like to buy something like tablet from wacom and sketching/drawing/painting software for PC.

Can you guys suggest me with the tablet and software for me to draw on my computer just as easy as on paper with my pen?

I’v been wathing this forum for while and I see alot of great sketches/drawings on here.

I thought maybe it was time for me to join the fun as well.

Any comment/answers will be very helpful.

Thank you all.



Hi there, I’ve heard people mention the DSG a few times, but this is the first time I’ve properly checked it out, and it sounds like real fun, aswell as a great learning experience :slight_smile:

Just the one question…do I have to “join”, i.e. e-mail the leader or something, or do I just start posting?


Just start posting. Hope to see your sketches!


Hi. Where can I find the older daily sketches? sketches from 2004, for example. Is there a way, other than using the search box, to find the older threads?


Try this…

Do a search for:
CgTalk Daily Sketch xxx

and just enter the number of the older thread you want to see.


I’m not sure if this is what you want but anyway… From the bottom of the forum page you can find Display Options. The default is that the threads are shown from the last month, but you can change that to a longer time or set it to show all the threads if you want. After that just press the Show Threads button and you should be able to see the older threads.


So what are the time limit rules? :slight_smile: I read the posts, but I still don’t get it (maybe it’s because I just woke up… yawn). Let’s say today at 11am a topic is posted, when is the deadline to post for this topic?

That’s what has stopped me from posting… I just don’t get it :cry:



You can reply to a topic whenever you want. If you want it to be considered for voting it has to be entered before voting begins.

The important thing is to participate - dont worry about the rules


Hmmm… interesting. So to be entered in the voting I would need to submit my work by the day’s end? Then at the end of the week, the winners from each day of that week are entered in a different voting, 'sketch of the week", right?

Sorry AndrewLey, I just want to know how things work, I feel better when I know :slight_smile:

You don’t have to post your sketch on the same day the topic is given. If you want to get into the voting, you need to post before people start giving their votes. So you can submit your entry to today’s topic today, tomorrow or whenever you feel like it. If you want to get comments on your work, it’s probably best to post on the same day the topic is given because ppl are most active on the current topic.

Edit: Check the previous page of this thread. Squibbit explained the whole system there better than I did. :slight_smile:


ok thanks! I can’t believe I missed that post :slight_smile: Cool, I will try my best to participate!

I think your description is the only post where it explains how Daily Sketch Group works. Perhaps you could have a FAQ sticky with rules and description of how it works.

Few more things could be added:
-Who can participate? Anyone?
-What medium can we use? 2D digital, traditional, 3D, etc.



Hi, I was wondering about the mediums we are allowed to use in this sketch forum. Can I sketch with pencil and just scan it in and colour? Also, can I join in the middle of a daily sketching week or do I have to start on the first day?


Yes, you can post pencil sketches and post only one or any other amount of sketches in a week. :smiley:

Posting on every day of the week was just a special event during the last week if you wanted to participate in “The pledge”. But you still could post as usual too, if you didnt want to take in this challenge.


how it work ?

  1. is there a new topic everyday ?
  2. when is selected sketch of the week and how much time I have to vote ?


Sorry guys I noT understand… :frowning:
If I want partecipate to the sketch of the week where I must put my drawing??
any help:)



at your own web space, and then link it from there… you can use some of those free web hosts, or image hosts like photobucket and others… I think RebeccaK explains it nicely here… http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=267104

…and good luck getting lost in madrid :smiley:

@hindus: probably it’s too late for answering, but… yes, there is a new topic every day, and for voting you have the time until Roberto counts up the votes and displays the results… 3 or 4 days more or less I think

…and this is my 600 post!!!


Tanks a lot Elmasfeo!!??¿¿ :argh: ahaah good nick :smiley:
tanks for help bro.



Hey guys,

I am very keen on participating in the daily sketch forum, mainly because I can’t draw well at all (yet) and I’m a multimedia student and feel I should be able to draw well! Especially when it comes to coming up with concepts and so forth. So I am going to try and participate in the daily sketch 2-3 times a week.

I just had a question… I noticed someone saying in this thread they had to wait till they had posted 30 times before they could post here. Is that something to do with posting images? Or am I still able to post images now while I am below 30 posts since you can’t add images anymore? It’s all done by adding the link to the image now isn’t it?

Cheers. :thumbsup:
