Hi guys,

Just for fun, I’d like to know which of your designs got printed here on DBH which you’ve created within an hour or less OR what is the design which you least expected that got printed.

Mine was:

The Rise of a Hero
(created within 1 hour)

(created within 1 hour)

Technical Wizardry
(created within 1 hour)

  • These were on the Wacom contest so time was really restricted to an hour or less.

Last one is
(which I think took me less than 30 mins to do so lol)

How about you guys? I’m pretty sure most of you have done awesome art within a few minutes, especially when you are in the artsy mood of drawing. :)

Haha, honestly, I don’t think any of my designs have been under an hour, I feel like that would be almost impossible for me to do. For one most of my stuff is 100% hand illustrated, using no borrowed imagery, and I like doing detailed drawings often, so it can take some time. Secondly, I don’t like to use the term “perfectionist”, but it does take me a lot of fiddling before I decide something is truly finished (or at least as good as I can get it). Most of my designs I think I’ve worked on for at least a couple of days if not a week or more. I might spend a couple days just trying to get the pre-sketch right, haha.

I also don’t think I’ve ever gotten a design printed where I didn’t expect it, because I don’t like to submit things that I don’t have 100% confident in. All the things they’ve printed of mine have been things I was really proud of.

But I envy your ability to just churn out quick things you don’t even expect to win and have so many prints, haha. You’ve definitely found the sweet spot.

Wow finally, someone did noticed my post lol! thanks Stray! Honestly, I totally agree with you. You have to feel confident with your designs before finally submitting it. In my case I guess, I was just lucky that it was chosen because there are a lot of awesome designs that I’ve voted for which can be picked aside from mine. I am currently experimenting on my style right now. I feel like I needed to improve it more. I truly admire your design ethics and just so you know, I’m a fan of your illustrations. :))

I will say though that I was really surprised that I made the last runner up slot in the 10k way back in the day. It was really neck and neck between me and a couple of other designs, and I thought for sure that I’d been edged out. It was a big surprise the day I saw my design up.

Oh and thanks, I appreciate it.

@NeonTiger- I know you would. Try it, It’s fun! :)
