PDN free-handing Drawing Contest! Topic Updated!


Recommended Posts

So after some thought and some out loud discussion I thought maybe I'd attempt to try out this contest, please let me know what you think.

The concept of the contest is to express art work through your own talent and only your own, I understand how much talent it takes to use some of these plug-ins and such, but I believe is a different sort of talent. There-fore the purpose of this contest is to free hand drawings on PDN then vote on whose you like the best. My definition of free handing is: you may only use the pencil tool, lines/curves. Then I'm going to allow the gradient tool because its a convince. Then of course the paint bucket etc.. Every week a topic will be decided by the community, this first one i will choice to show an example and to get things started.

The PDN Free-Hand Drawing Contest Rules!

If your entry breaks any of the rules it will be disqualified.

Results

To be honest people took this contest a lot further than i was thinking, this is a good thing :mrgreen:. When i drew my picture i didnt draw a background or clean it up cus i didnt think any one else was going to, boy was i wrong. I was really impressed by some of the drawing talent PDN's community has.

Our winner is PYJO

i apologize guys, ive been having a hard getting on PDN i was having fire wall issues, but im back up and running.

Sorry about the wrong link, the mods changed it around when they sticked it, ill be sure to fix it.

Mods don't change anything when we sticky stuff. In fact, we can't even sticky from the edit page. We have a drop-down menu on the forum index page that lets us do several different things.

However, phpBB3 did some odd stuff when I was moving some stuff out of this page and (theoretically) into the discussion thread. It lost several posts, and I sincerely apologize for that.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

im extremely pleased with this contest :mrgreen:, every one has really done a great job so far, im surprised at some of these drawings. I hope to see more drawings like this in the pictorium, etc. I do about 90% percent of my work free hand, so i love to see others free hand.

Thanks for all the involement, and a special thanks to Pyjo for helping with the rules!

a bit childish i know. lol. but it was fun to make! :mrgreen::mrgreen:

it was really a challenge to not use any kind of effect. i mean, when i do my creations, i go straight to the effects tab and fire away. it never dawned to me of what the tools option could do.

i mean look at pyjo's work :) astounding!

I know I am hopeless in free drawing but I had lot of fun in doing this (I hand-drawed the ice-cream truck, while I got some help - err a lot of help actually! - from webdings for the background) I just wish I saw this contest earlier than yesterday (but that does not necessary mean that I would have been able to do any better :lol: !)
