Today's topic is: Creature: Unique Pig/worthog
"Now that's a pig of a different color..." "...pigs of a feather flock together..." ...aah whatever. I'm up to late and still avoiding writing a paper I need to finish!
"The most important things to say are those which often I did not think necessary for me to say -- because they were too obvious."
- André Gide
not exactly breaking the concept barriers with this one.

Before this thread is through, I want to see at least one Anna Nicole Smith gag!
hey guys heres my working sketch, im not done yet and have alot of work to do on it tell e hat you think
commander obvious: your line quality is amazing, very expressive
villageidiot: great sense of movemnt in your pic.
hehe.. pigs. just got my internet back up and running! Commander.. That is great stuff.
I couldn't think of anything more original than adding a few extra horns and a beard. Guess my heart wasn't in it today as I became jaded after abot 40min's and gave up. reference used.
Hey... Where's his nostrils?! Haha... I guess that's another "unique" feature. :o
Great stuff so far. I'll come back later and comment.

Strangely, I was reading Pierre Boulle's original Planet of The Apes novel last night, and was inspired by this paragraph:
I told myself i'd draw the boar one day, and then gave no more thought to it. Then lo and behold, todays topic arrived! Spooky!"If I noticed a camel with three humps or a wild boar with horns like a stag, they could in no way astonish me after what I had already seen on the planet Soror."
Anyway, here's my half an hours worth for today. A Boar with Stags horns... There's some great stuff appeared today, it looks like it will be a strong showing all round!

Who knew pigs would inspire such creativity!
"Never fall in love with an idea. They're whores: if the one you're with isn't doing the job, there's always, always, always another."
- Winter Sorbeck (The Cheese Monkeys by Chip Kidd)
my reference was from the movie Babe. I started to draw a pig and suffered from shock and awe, so I put on babe, and while my kids watched (the movie) I sketched this.
I am trying to get used to color and painters brushes.
I can draw or paint anything...as long as accuracy and perspective are not required.
Nice job guys!
My favs so far are village idiot and teyekanik

This sketch was about 20 min for the pencil, and about 30 min for the photoshop treatment.
I didn't warp the design much; next topic I'm going to push whatever design a lot further away from reality. I also should spent more time on the color; the values and lighting aren't quite right, but I've seen busy at work lately this is about all I can get in.
very cool teyekanik
teyekanik-I love that. Very nice.
lpetty-Tight pencil sketch. Did you use any reference? Seems very accurate. Great job!
Morr-Love the design. Like to see more of that boar.
Nephilim-Good start! I'd almost like to see the creature that skull came from more than the headpiece, myself, but I'm anxious to see where you're taking the piece.
Gumdrop-great texture and color scheme.
Commander Obvious-I REALLY like this. The style is very reminiscent of something...I want to say Ralph Steadman, but that's not who I'm thinking of. Hmm. I'll get back to you.
Village Idiot-lovely as usual. Ever get tired of being good?
dARKCLOWN-I like the chunky linework. Very 'inky'.
webgirly2k-This is cool! Probably my favorite of the pieces you've posted.
xbiten-That's not lame, my friend. Seriously, every time you're hating your work, you're probably learning something. Besides, if you keep this up, and keep drawing every day, you're going to improve exponentially.
Suggestions: You might want to try layering in a little more color gradation outside of the orange range(maybe some blue reflected light?) Also, I notice none of the orange is bleeding into the white of the hooves and the teeth; incorporating a little of that local color into the other elements will help tie it together. Hope I didn't offend, and I hope this was mildly helpful.
Good work, everyone!
Engine Man: yeah you're probably right. Thanks for the comment and tip. I'll think about it til next time. ciao.
Cheers everyone // Rikard
Hi! Because i had no time (was too lazy) to do the last three dsg, i decided to redo them now, having the time now (finally gotten my ass up)
ps: to safe some time, i combined the four dsgs into one - "frog on a homemade wheelchair (mainly wooden), being attacked by a dark cowboy warthog".
This one was a little quick and I'm not sure if it's really a pig/hog anymore. Comments?

just wondering: what size do you all set your pages to be.. i usually go with 6inX6in @250ppi... but i've noticed that there is alot of detail in some of the other sketches, so are some of you working large and then resizing it to show?... :cool:
some funny stuff out there today, especially Helzer's and Docboom's hilarious.
Ipetty, i'm very envious of your raw sketching skill.
An alien warthog on hmmm, some planet similiar to Dagobah i guess. highly prized for the jewels that make up their eyes, many foolhardy poachers die each year in attempts to catch the elusive beast.
i was doing the dsg for a while there, im back again!
Woah guys! Quick glance shows some incredible entries today. I'll have to look over them tonight when I've got a little more time.
I'd love to submit today, but yeah, time's tight, and I think eunich pigs are a little out of my artistic realm. =)
Looking forward to seeing more as the day goes on!
would like to go into more detail, but dont have the time right now... got 8 hrs to get some job done... need to get back to work
sketch thingy took me about 5-10 mins
hope you likey!
Finally had a little time to join the DSG.
Missed a few nice subjects the last week, very cool entries everbody!
That's cool buzzed, a snow hog is a gret idea
