Its not just a difficult topic…its difficult going back to work after being away. <sigh>


Yeah I decided to come back to the picture here, and hopefully do a few a week, and I’m stuck. I have an idea… just can’t quite put it to work.



15min Photoshop, Wacom

Wow Goro, its kinda embarrasing to post after that.

Hello all,

Here’s my very first post with one of my drawings to CGTalk ever. Also my first “finished” drawing that’s different from my usual drawing style, which is very minimalistic and cartoony (e.g. “lazy”). Here goes:

Total time: about 2 hours
Software: Painter IX
Hardware: Wacom Intuos3, Belkin Nostromo n52

I should spend more time on detail in the chair, but I have to leave… posting deadlines… gotta love 'em.

Curious about your comments!


Oh no have to go back to university tomorrow. :sad:
Less time for sketching.

So here is me in the strange glasstunnel infront of the colorfull (grey and other shades of grey) university. Hm you cant really see the university, why did I paint it then?

It got all tiny when I changed errors in the perspective.
Hm, took me 1h30 min in photoshop and I dont even like it. :smiley:


Took some thinking to come up with a good concept for this one… Im pretty happy with the result tho…

about an hour in photoshop with wacom


nice work everyone =)

goro… damn that’s great :smiley:

well here is my crappy piece :slight_smile:

5min sketch & 1h color, PSE + wacom
