Photoshop/Wacom/10 Minutes

(Sorry about this one)[/b]


Damn Superdude, I wanted to do a ‘sandstorm on Mars’… :wink:

Edit: holy s*it, didn’t see that one comming… :eek:


:argh: AAAAH!
Supervlieg, do you want us to have a heart attack?!


Hmmmm… is this anything to do with fundamentals week?..

EDIT: WOW!! I read the replies and still didnt notice… Dont shock me like that… I’m fragile.

Havent quite got a style down but as per usual here is a scribble by me…

50mins-Photoshop (mouse)



I´ll see if i can make a more inventive sketch later:

Photoshop, 30s


My thanks goes to Thany for getting me using color. I’m really having fun with it.
Wacom - Photoshop - 1hr 10min (I think)


wacom/ps/20 min


long time lurker, but i had a few spare minutes so i made a Big Red…

photoshop 30mins

(i used to post a few a long time ago…firestorm i tihink was one of them)


LOL - darn supervlieg, you got there first!

hey actually I like it, although it should be a big, big oil painting, on a big, big wall :smiley:



crazy3dman - color isn’t as threatening as you thought, eh? you’re a natural! i like it!!


Have to agree with the other about Supervlieg “heartstoper” - just when you think “nice strokes” thats when you die :slight_smile:

anyway, I don’t know what this is but it’s red and it took me 30 min in PS ,wacom

  • pretty hard topic - to wide.


forbidden.inspiration - lol Thanks - I am glad I took the plunge.:slight_smile:


Sorry for the gore, I thought of the red revolution … :s

Two hrs Photoshop 6 + wacom

EDIT: just changed the colors a bit and added some very discreet shadowing… Also, my roommate tells me it looked like a rat on a matress - which it isn’t - it’s a man lying on flagstones (and notice the reflections on the blood at the back?) (Harumpf, it feels so bad having to explain your work… But I’ll get there! )


photoshop 7, Wacom, about an hour


Heh, glad you folks like it


70 mins | PSP | Wacom

more like orange, though


just a quick one.

10 mins/wacom/Photoshop CS


Thanks, crazy3dman. You’re a natural with color, too! Love the expression on her face, great sketch.

daw: Very cool sketch as well.

Cyanid: Lovely concept like painting! I like it.


I couldn’t manage to focus on a red subject, so here’s a big doodle instead. I did start with the word RED though, so to me it’s on topic. Or, you could imagine that the kittens name is Red. Redford the little black cat. Yes, this is a portrait of my imaginary kitten named redford.

edit, about 1h15m: painter and then quite a bit of fun in photoshop.
