FAC - VOTES ARE IN - Fan Art Competition 18: Sidekicks

Recommended Posts

I intend to participate in this contest eventually. My art skills are fairly decent at this point, I started drawing again awhile back. Not sure who to draw though.

I've never used GIMP before, but I've always been curious about it. How is it any different from, say, Photoshop?

I haven't tried using GIMP or Photoshop in well over 4 years, but I can say I couldn't get anything to actually work in GIMP without looking at the documentation for it. While photoshop I could start up and be able to do basic coloring/drawing/layering just by experimentally pushing buttons at random.

GIMP is just as good as photoshop though if you take the time to learn to use it, I've seen plenty of great pieces of art work done in gimp. (giant wallpaper example)

Mine is going to pwn this month (I hope)!

BRING IT OOOOON!

But, nah, here's hoping your idea doesn't crush mine! 8O

How's everyone else?

Goin' rather swimmingly, I must say! Had a couple of failed attempts at various popular Nintendo sidekicks. Now I can never love them again.

I decided to sit down and make my contribution. Took way less time compared to my previous FAC, but then I didn't vectorize the whole thing.

Oh, and I chose Daxter. The games I'm currently playing have a great influx on my choice.

If I don't see at least 10 entries of Luigi, I'm going to be very upset. Don't none of you go being all "creative" and stuff.

I'm starting to think I won't be able to make this one this time. I had a great idea, but I haven't had any time to even sketch it yet because I've been too busy with other things....and now with the new Castlevania coming out today, I don't expect any free time from now until the deadline. ;_;

I did something in like a minute.

Then again it seems the most time I'm willing to dedicate to anything is 15-24 hours before I get bored, and most of my stuff gets done in just 3-5...

Same, except I don't have anything yet

Same. But I'd be 4 days ahead of my last 2 FAC entries if I started today... and I'm kinda sentimental about tradition.

Argh, I actually have something I'm working on, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it in any kind of digital form.

I hate not having a scanner >.|

Maybe I'll try redrawing it into GIMP by hand icon_think.gif

Are you using a tablet? If you set up the canvas area right you can just trace it. (If the drawing is too big to be traced in one go you can do it in separate parts and piece it together).

Otherwise, why don't you just sketch/draw it on the computer in the first place?
