Happy new year everyone!! :smiley: :smiley:


About an hour in photoshop with a wacom… if you can’t tell its supposed to be a beaver :wink:


1 Hour Photoshop


Really a rushjob, but the topic was too cool. 10 minutes, photoshop.


Hey all,

I’m new at cgtalk, and also new to drawing. I followed the daily sketch threads a couple of days and I thought it was about time to post a sketch :slight_smile: I hope you like the piece!

Created it in ArtRage, took about 2 hours.


spent 30 minutes in Painter and understood that nothing good will come out…


Ok, not so much time today…15min Photoshop


TheChap, haha LOOL, its a good one :wink:


pfff more of a test for chrome like materials… took me 2.5 hours - Photoshop 6 - wacom

Sir Lumps: nice one.
The Chap: :smiley: Glad to see you here and nice entry.


20 min - just a lunatique

“whisssssskey sirrrrr??”


too much time on this one so I just stopped. 2.5 hours photoshop. Chap, that rules.


Is this guy out yet?

photoshop CS bout an hour


I like that one Alice! He looks way better with long blond hair, doesn’t he?


is it intentional that he looks like Mr. Bloom? :wink:
good work :thumbsup:


Heck yes, the legolas version of that man looks smashing :smiley:


@ Alice: Nice Orlando, only the detail-contrast between the face and the rest of his body could be a bit less drastic in my opinion. :slight_smile:

@ Reinier: that one rocks, but his sphere-body doesn’t look like it is the same material as his arms and legs, there are to few reflections on the sphere and it could use heavier contrast. Well I couldnt do anything close to that sketch. :smiley:

Ok now my sketch for today. I forced myself to spend more time on my sketch today. Hope it was worth it.

Photoshop 2 hours
