Creature: BIG, QUADROPEDAL, GAUZE-WRAPPED, UNDEAD, ALIEN MUMMY
The topic was sounding a bit gloomy so I used artistic license.
I sketched this during my lunch-hour. Would have liked to have spent longer on it - I'll probably have another stab at this topic later on.
Ashton - I like your creature, has a nice dopey feel about it. I'd love to see the image all tightened up.
Ok I never did the DSG before, tried for a campy '50s horror movie feel but don't know if it comes across...
Spent about 2 hours on this on Photoshop, a bit over the time limit (sorry!)
I really like ashton's drawing but they're all good
EDIT: for some reason this picture doesn't show on my home comp (it did at work... can other people see this?)
EDIT2: ok, finally I got this to load... hooray!

My one is pretty rough will tighten it up later on.
Mitze-really mummy like!
Ahwell, at least I'm painting/sketching with my tablet.
Edit: I really dig yours Mitze, and maybe on some level mine was influenced by yours.
Nice sketches y'all. The DSG has been kicking out cool topics as of late.Glad I some time to work on one today. Had fun with this one and getting a little faster....I think
I'm not happy at all with this one... I've been fighting sickness for a few days now, and work exploded all of a sudden on me, so staying awake alone was difficult, let alone trying to get this the way I wanted. Was going for hyper-perspective and emerging from darkness, yet ended up with distorted and unclear ><

Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possiblity of cheating. it is either good or bad. ~ Dali
Nice pics by everyone. Especially for one of the more difficult daily draws.
watereater. a lot of nice creatures there.
Calcaneus. good job add a bit of colour now.
dabble. Great pic nice mood.
Woodlandwalker. Nice dynamic monster.
I carried on and tighten the pic up. I could have just edit my original post but i think this version has lost something. The clouds are a photo. If i have more time i will fix up the little people especially the guy on the horse.
A quick tip, I think a lot of these paintings would benefit from a lower horizon line. dabble's has a great sense of scale; if you're a human looking at a huge creature, you're looking up, which means the horizon line will be at the lower third at least of the frame. If the horizon line is higher, you just lose that sense of scale. For example, Woodlandwalker, good idea putting those pyramids in there for scale, but they almost look like toy pyramids. If the HL were lower, they and the creature would look a ton more massive.
uuuups...made a really tiny alien.....
to all: very nice paintings today
Mitze: your warm coloring is very pretty, got real desert-feeeling
dabble: nice depth in your painting. Like the way how you use brown and blue.
Wow, paradoxba, ashton and halfmonk, you did a great job!!! Well, everybody did, but those three are my favorites...
Bit late I guess, but it's not like DSG is daily or anything
I'm bad at sketchbooks, have a tumblr!
This is my first DSG post. I tried sorta hard... but ohhh well.. PS. forgot about the BIG part. use ur imagination. Lets say hes 14 ft tall
Nice Aliens all
From the murky depths of the alien burial structure comes... a murky drawing:
Quick sketch and some clumsy coloring
def getting outclassed on this sub
Open Canvas rocks!
Nice looking aliens everyone.
Horrendous internet problems, but finally I can present my entry. Nice work everyone.
