PDN free-handing Drawing Contest!K.digennaro wins!

Recommended Posts

Voting Starting!

Voting will end on the 16th!

*im sorry i havent been more active in this week, ive been fighting the flue :(

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.

Week 2 Jurassic Age




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.

This time it is difficult to foresee contest result, since there is a lot of good entries.

Some of them are very funny. Mine is not.


It is very simple, since this week I was mainly working on a new plugin (just published, click to learn more). I used a very restricted toolset. My dinosaur is made at 99% of line/curve and paint bucket. No gradients.
