Surfing the Chiustream

Artist extraordinare Bobby Chiu hosts a weekly sketch contest on his aptly named blog, Sketchoholic. Every Friday at 2pm (Pacific Time), sketchoholics all over the world tune in and participate in an hour-long drawing session. Bobby picks a theme at the top of the hour, and each artist spends the next sixty minutes rendering their version of the subject. The contender with the best drawing at the end of the hour gets Bobby's original sketch.

This week's challenge was "Big Arm vs. Big Head." I naturally thought of Brachiosaurus (whose name means "arm lizard") vs the tyrant lizard king. My drawing didn't win this time, but I'll keep participating till I do. Below are some of the other amazing participants. The unfortunate gentleman with the bird crap on his head was the winning submission.

Neat Brach fact. And awesome sketch, love the tyrannosaur. Was this done on illustration board? I'm trying to figure out what texture that is.
I try and catch those chiustreams but seem to always miss them and remember once its over. That last submission image reminds me of Monty Python's Meaning of life haha.

That image is right up there with William Stout's art. Love the look on the Brachiosaur's face.

These are all so good, but yours is the best in my humble opinion.

Kendra- thanks, yeah, it was done on illustration board. You should definitely check out the Chiustream, it's a great drawing challenge. I know what you mean about Monty Python. It's the guy who says, "Where did the fishy fish go?" My brother wants to go as him for Halloween.

AM-thanks! :)

Ryan-I love William Stout, Ryan, so I take that as a compliment of the highest degree!

Jason- thanks, man, please do. Your layout work is inspiring!

Josh-aw, thanks man. You should definitely participate this week!
