View Full Version : Let's Get It Started! - Game 3: sajad126 @ purb36
April 20th, 2005, 03:11 AM
so here, me and sajad126 have decided to do a bi-weekly thunderdome to draw environments and stuff, which we are self-proclaimed novices at. basically, things that arent people. with a mutual goal in mind of being able to create pimped-out environments at will, my goal is to wipe the floor with sajad's sad, sorry, Miami Heat-lovin keister. >:D
neutral party gives suggestions, open medium, submissions are due 2 weeks after we agree on the topic, neutral judge (if someone's willing). if the deadline is missed, that person forfeits that round. two man enter, one man leave! let's git it on!!!
April 22nd, 2005, 02:54 AM
so what have we decided on for this round? lemme know yo? im in there like swim wear on a bear. peace with 2 fingas !
April 24th, 2005, 09:42 AM
well, since i dont hear many replies outside of you, why DON'T we do this nba playoffs style. rounds go home-away-home-away (you pick a topic, i pick a topic, and so on) until we get a winner. so, i offer you home court advantage. whats the topic bro?
btw, sorry for getting back so late. ive been at a touch rugby tourney since this past friday and i just got back tonight. undefeated and won the whole thing. schweeeeeeeT!!!
April 27th, 2005, 05:09 AM
ok, i was talking to runtosaurus today and she suggested we draw a swamp. with alligators. sound good to you? you got something else in mind?
due 2 weeks from when we agree on the subject. waitin for the tip-off...
April 27th, 2005, 05:16 AM
ok lets first start off by saying. touch rugby? you are a fruit. lol , just kidding bro, ok lets decide a topic.........hmmm.......ok taking a shot in the dark, lets turn on the lights and see what weve got. ok our topic is going to be a city landscape but with a futuristic touch, also in the center the has got to be some brushery, a park or trees of some sort. i unno, how about it?
April 27th, 2005, 05:19 AM
i think we just posted at the same time, thats pretty funny. well go with the swamp. 2 weeks then?
April 27th, 2005, 06:41 AM

May 11th, 2005, 11:49 AM
i like my alligator studies better...well, at least for the 'gator i ended up using. i think the pic came out well...the colors on the trees could have been better, i guess if i knew what i was doing or took more time with it. anyway, inks and color (digital watercolors in painter); judges?
May 11th, 2005, 09:17 PM
Ok sorry for hijacking your topic, here's my own (quite old-1998 or something) swamp with alligators.
May 12th, 2005, 11:46 AM
Then why did you post it?
TDs are for new images.
May 12th, 2005, 06:27 PM
Dude, no need to get worked up.
And if I may post an advice here, the final color drawing looks like something that could have been done with photoshop. When doing foliage in photoshop the irregular brushes are your friends. They allow you to get a natural effect with less work. In painter, you'd want to try with the sponges. In natural media, dry brushes work very well for this effect, as does splattering with a toothbrush.

toaster - thanks for lookin out.
qitsune - i have no problem with your picture. it is in fact a very nice swamp (much better than mine, i must admit; your color choice was outstanding) with a gator. however, this is not the place for it. the purpose of this thread is to motivate sajad and myself to get better at drawing environments through competition. to that end, we are not just posting art that we have lying around, we have to make new pieces that are on the topic that we specified. im not mad, i know youre new here. but now you know, and knowing, as they say, is half the battle. next time, instead of "hijacking" someone's topic (as you so put it), find the right place for what you plan on posting and then post there. or even create your own new post. heck, start a sketchbook. start your own thunderdome even. or even join ours. but please make sure youre sticking to the intended purpose of the thread you are posting in. be sure to read the stickys that are posted too; you'll know the rules and keep the administrators happy. then, everybody's happy. :}
besides that, thank you for the tip on brushes. i really have a long way to go with painting and coloring stuff. happy drawing.
still waiting for sajad...g'luck with your stuff man.
May 12th, 2005, 07:24 PM
sorry for the delay went to my boys house and scanned it there, this is what i managed to come up with, aight pizzow !!!
May 13th, 2005, 03:01 AM
I'm afraid I came in waaay late and I know it's really just a competition between the two of you but it sounded like fun so please forgive the intrusion. This is my first posting, I hope it comes out right. I just read your thread at 11:00pm. Doh!! This is all that I was able to do in an hour. I didn't have time to put an alligator in it though.
And I'm going to say that between the two of you, Sajad won the match for his good use of dynamic camera placement. Very creative.
May 14th, 2005, 09:50 AM
The colors are great, we can see the depth of the place.
May 14th, 2005, 09:51 AM
And Sajad, I love your tree, the perspective is really good.
I just wonder what the pointy thing is to the right.
May 14th, 2005, 05:31 PM
lol, i was trying to do a vine of some sorts, my perspective on it is kinda whacked, lol. you learn with every line i guess. nice stuff rusty, good job purb. . . . now im thinking i should try and color mine but alas i shall have to wait tillith my computer comith backith. wonder whats up with purb ?

May 14th, 2005, 06:11 PM
Sajad I'm stalking your drawings ;)
Very Sajad looking piece. Nice position of the camera.
I thought that pointy thing was some sort of boat.
The owner had climbed the tree when he saw the alligator. Could have worked :P
Keep this enviornment t-dome up.
May 15th, 2005, 02:26 AM
well, my miami heat lovin ass just got what he wanted. another sweep in the playoffs, hopefully in the next series we'll be able to do the same. and what did i tell you guys about dwayne wade! ! ! ! that kid is just stellar ! ! sheesh ! Oi !
lol, and pencilator. . .. . u can stalk all you want bud. . . also i should have implemented your idea, haha !
May 15th, 2005, 11:16 AM
so my sister forced me into going to tokyo this weekend to go watch some sumo wrestling :muscle: ...it was good, but not really worth the almost $500 the trip costed. i did get some good pics and good drawings out of it though, as well as some good food. sister's going back to the states tomorrow; ill miss her, but i cant wait to get my life back.
i too like the viewer placement in your drawing sajad; it gives it more of a personality from a storytelling angle. i wish you showed more of the swamp though; it feels kinda more just like a tree and a gator and some water. i also think i made my picture too flat, not enough character to the swamp, very generic. but hey, thats why we're doing this, right?
got your computer back yet man? while we're waiting for the judges to tabulate scores (how is that happening, i wonder?) we could pick the next topic and start working on that. your cityscape idea? 2 weeks?
love the drawing rusty; now tha's a swamp.
May 15th, 2005, 05:05 PM
man purb your right. . . i shoudl showed of the swamp. dang 500 bones for sumo wrestling !? woah ! hope it was more fun than you let us believe bro! anyways, yeah im down for the city scape in like 2 weeks. everything else cool with you over there on the other side of the world? oh and i should be getting my computer back by tuesday and then i gotta go out and buy a scanner...... but i should have it all within the alotted 2 weeks.
May 21st, 2005, 11:49 AM
4th quarter on the way. you been hittin the pad? hittin the pipe?
how does one create a poll for a thread? i dont see the option anywhere.
May 25th, 2005, 04:00 AM
man just got this scanner and now that shit doesnt work, !!!! FU#$ !!!!!!!
May 26th, 2005, 11:21 AM
well, i got busier than i had wanted to this week and ended up not drawing as much as i had wanted to, but i got it "done". here's my entry. sajad? talk to me playa.
May 27th, 2005, 12:53 AM
good stuff purb, sorry its late man but boss' at work are kinda giving me stuff to study, freaking sucks right now bro, but its a paycheck. anyways, this is all i could come come with.....im real dissappointed with it but i had to show something you know what im saying?
whats the next topic by the way?
HAHAHAHA !! just realized everything is tilted to the right. . . WATCH OUT BELOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW !!!!!
May 28th, 2005, 05:53 AM

:aa: :ap: :aa: :ac: :ah: :ae: :a!: JUMP ON IT! JUMP ON IT! JUMP ON IT!!!!
June 1st, 2005, 10:50 AM
Hey you guys, fun thread. I just found it.
As long as I'm here, I'll leave a couple small crits.
purb - I'm definitely not an expert digital painter yet, but there are a couple crits I'd make on your swamp pic, first is that it could use some more value range. Right now all the color is pretty much the same value. It needs some shadow and highlights. Does that make sense? And, on the water, I think it might work better if the coloring you did followed the directions of the lines you drew to indicated the water surface instead of the coloring being so random looking.
sajad - I love the perspective of your pic. I think the reason the vine doesn't read like it is going down and then back up into the tree, is that you've drawn it pretty much the same width all the way. If you're seeing it in perspective, it would get bigger as it goes up into the tree and closer to the viewer.
Anyway, hope those help a little.
Like I said, this looks like a fun thread. I'll be watching the battles.
June 12th, 2005, 07:10 PM
entry for the week. i think its kinda weak though...my first drawing, the concept was better, but the execution was horrible. i ended up hating it a lot, so i made a new one last night. anyway, here goes something something.
June 19th, 2005, 01:49 PM
wow...i can't read. :dead:
for those that are wondering, me and sajad have been really busy as of late, and cause the idea we had for Game 3 was such a good one, we could not be satisfied with a half-butt drawing of Thor's bathroom (notice the error? i don't read well; my badd :bashful: ) and an invisible picture. so, after taking a break for a week, we will resume the current Thunderdome with the due date to be next week, Wednesday, i believe. and we will be drawing Cap'n America's bathroom. once again (for my sake), that's Cap'n America's bathroom.

LOL I thought something was wrong :P
still waitning for captains bathroom :teeth:
July 2nd, 2005, 06:54 PM
man this is what i came up with. . .. its not very creative i guess now that i see it after a day. the only captain america thingy things that are theer are the flag rug, the name on the shower and the shield in a frame on the wall. wanted to do him taking a dump reading a mg but then i remembered no beings. just scenery. the deadline is 2morrow and we gotta show something. lets go purb !!!
so whats next?
July 3rd, 2005, 01:35 PM
where i was going with this was kinda "the darker side of captain america"; i ended up having too much fun with friends who came to visit from america to have any time to draw. so here's what i have. got a cave, some of red skull stuff to take his rage out on...good stuff. oh, and some other stuff i didnt get a chance to clean up. i got work tomorrow, ya' know.
