Thanks a lot, Casper. You captured the meaning of the month, here.  This is going to be a great addition for the calendar, Thanks buddy!  ;)

It was done on wacom....... obviously! ;)

Anyways, I'm just curious whether everyone is still in this. I dont have to say we are running short on time, but I'll say it anyway...

We are running short on time.

I'll do another one if anyone doesnt want, or cant go ahead with it.
But I think someone better should do it than me :)

I think what we need is ideas. I'm out of inspiration for calander months, any ideas? This should help those who havent started yet.

Very nice picture, Casper.

As for ideas, I don't know... maybe Bart playing an April's Fools prank on someone for the April picture?
The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

I think Bart making a Joke on Homer would be nice.

Be my guest, Black Raven (Shimmering).

There is a list, somewhere in the thread but choose the last one. I'll appreciate all your help and willingness, but of course some of the months are already taken or so I believe. However, for now, I guess is a good idea for you to decide what you want to do or what you have ready or in the works (because of the limited time left).  What we need to do is the first half of the year first.


Thanks again,

Omar Arriaga.

P.S. A wacom tablet for your birthday, wow! What a nice gift, can't wait to see what you're going to be able to do with it.  A big cake awaits you.  ;)

Take one of my months if you like. I'll still do both, but I expect you'll come up with something more interesting, so mine could just be a backup in case something gets in your way. :)
Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

I havn't acturally started anything yet but if I get time between revision today I'll start a few sketches if I can remember :-/

Happy early Birthday!  ;) The thing is : I won´t be here tommorow, as I will be with my brother all day before he goes back to Texas.  He is going to Iraq for a whole year, next month, so I will spend the day with him.  May god take care of my brother while he is there.

P.S. I hope you get your wacom. You will be able to do wonders with it girl.  :lisa:

Yikes. Sorry, Omar - I hope I'm not too late. I know I promised a December pic eons ago, but procrastination's got me in its evil grip :doh: If you need the hi-res version, drop me a line...

Like Diamond just said, "we will learn OB's drawing style in 50 years" :D
Great picture, nothing else to add. Hopefully other artists will follow your example and post scenes this nice.
I won't say more, I just liked it...

thanks for the bday wish :) I didn't get a wacom however I did get an A4 tablet so I can properly trace any sketchs without scanning :) So I can use it on my old comp upstairs :)
BTW, Orange Box, my friend and I think your picture is soooo cute X) (we're in maths lesson and borred so I showed my mate everyone's art on here and she loved the pic of maggie you did)

I dont believe you, I think you got Pablo Piccaso to do it for you! :)

Truly awsome, and great for a calander, which is very lucky we are doing one! :D

Well, Black Raven, your a4 is good for digital drawing.  Wacom is just a brand name and anything else.
I'm sure you will get the best out of that A4 tablet, which by the way I would like to ask: what brand is it? Because that one you have is just the same size as mine, I think.

This is the wacom, and the next one is another brand , the only difference is the price.

Wacom is one of the most expensive, but it does not mean they are the best.   Good luck with your tablet and happy drawing.  ;D


Edit: OB, great pic, indeed a great addition to the calendar, thanks a lot.  ;D ;)
Yes I will need the high resolution one.  If we can have a little chat later on for ideas ,it would be great or just pm me.  I hope we can find a way for you to send me the high resolution.

thanks
it's "trust" and it seems to work well, I'm still getting to grips with the surface area being much larger than my old tablet o_0
I'm gradurally getting better with the tracing technique aswell :)
