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.
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!!!

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 !
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!!!
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...
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?
i think we just posted at the same time, thats pretty funny. well go with the swamp. 2 weeks then?
you have home court...its your call. we can save the swamp till next time. 2 weeks.
game 1. its playoff time baby.
oh, and no, i'm no kiwi. hey, i didnt organize it, i just played.

why yes, im grateful to mj for getting me another day off. actually, we're having a guest speaker tomorrow from out of town...
the kid is not my son.
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?
Ok sorry for hijacking your topic, here's my own (quite old-1998 or something) swamp with alligators.

Then why did you post it?
TDs are for new images.
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.
sorry for the delay went to my boys house and scanned it there, this is what i managed to come up with, aight pizzow !!!

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.

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 ?
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 !
so my sister forced me into going to tokyo this weekend to go watch some sumo wrestling ...it was good, but not really worth the almost $500 the trip costed. i did get some good pics and good drawings out of it though, as well as some good food. sister's going back to the states tomorrow; ill miss her, but i cant wait to get my life back.
i too like the viewer placement in your drawing sajad; it gives it more of a personality from a storytelling angle. i wish you showed more of the swamp though; it feels kinda more just like a tree and a gator and some water. i also think i made my picture too flat, not enough character to the swamp, very generic. but hey, thats why we're doing this, right?
got your computer back yet man? while we're waiting for the judges to tabulate scores (how is that happening, i wonder?) we could pick the next topic and start working on that. your cityscape idea? 2 weeks?
love the drawing rusty; now tha's a swamp.
man purb your right. . . i shoudl showed of the swamp. dang 500 bones for sumo wrestling !? woah ! hope it was more fun than you let us believe bro! anyways, yeah im down for the city scape in like 2 weeks. everything else cool with you over there on the other side of the world? oh and i should be getting my computer back by tuesday and then i gotta go out and buy a scanner...... but i should have it all within the alotted 2 weeks.
4th quarter on the way. you been hittin the pad? hittin the pipe?
how does one create a poll for a thread? i dont see the option anywhere.
man just got this scanner and now that shit doesnt work, !!!! FU#$ !!!!!!!
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.
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 !!!!!
