Took my time on this one, but I really liked the pose, and wanted to get something accurate. I erased the legs and waist several times and restarted, after comparing them to the original image. I had them much too wide each time, and it made her appear much shorter. Anyway, crits/comments appreciated :)

hey da_ul,

first pic online. I think it would help you to make longer and smoother lines... even if the lines are not as correct as they are now... but the image would become a lot more dynamic.

@liptonice

I like your picture...what I would recommend is a brush that has hard edges 100% but I put the flow down 85%.

If I had to critisis you pic I would say, that the shading of the boat looks a bit turbulent because you used a much smaller brush on it. And that there is no bounce light on the buttom side of the boat.

hey guys, love the idea of doing some speed painitings but just have one question because never done any before:

I'm guessing theres some sort of time restraint? Could some one just expand on that one.

cheers

Edit*

Well i did a quick painting, took about 35 mins?
C&C welcome

TedNindo
06-04-2008, 09:36 AM
hey ash,
first I have to say I really like how you approached the cat. The way you blocked in the colors is pretty good, and although you didn't add a lot of details you described the form of the cat really well.

You asked about the timeframe a speedpainting should take. I can only speek for this thread, we normal take 20 minutes for every picture but if you can't get it done in that time or think you just need some more time to bring it to a satisfiying state then just take that time. And it is allways helpfull to write down the estimated time the painting took.

i think the colors are fine, the usage of bright grey instead of gleaming white makes the piece look very much like a offline painting, if you compare it to mine. i shouldnt have chosen bright white i think.

you could have added a few brighter highlights on the right tho... to make it look less flat ;)

Hey guys, did another speed painting done this morning. Took best part of 27 mins i reckon. There was alot of subtle tones that my eyes completely missed now that I look back on it, I think i better practise collecting and organising tones in future. :)

TedNindo
06-06-2008, 04:37 PM
@ash

have to say that again, I realy love how you block in the form. And reducing it to just a few colortones is a skill in my eyes. Do you use the colorpicker for selecting the color, or do you just select dem yourself, because I think your selection was quite good. I am looking forward to your speedpainting of today...

Todays attempt was good a challenge in digital blending, something I'm not used to at all. With respect to that, does any one have any tips in digital blending? My approach wasn't working too well initally, hence probably spent closer to 35 mins on this one.

@TedNindo
Thanks very much, always nice to have work appreciated. Regarding color choices, I don't actually use the color picker in my work flow, though I did use to. I reckon this is down to the fact that for the last year I have mainly been painting in more traditional medias, a nice side effect i guess :)

i want to try and produce some kind of work everyday. i thought this would be a good excercise.

my attempt: (20 min)
http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/5904/spex0606hh0.jpg

ive never timed myself when working (cant manage to keep track of time at all when i draw) and i was interested in seeing what i could produce in 20 minutes time. i wish i had more time tho cuz this is no where near where i wouldve like to have gotten it. maybe ill quicken up with repeated tries :)

i like the attempts for today. a lot of different techniques.

edit: @ash30- heres what i learned from todays speedpaint. hope this helps

Hey guys, just working through the back catalogue. I do enjoy painting landscapes as its more a case of creating depth rather than form so mistakes are more forgiving I reckon. Took 22 mins on this one. C&C welcome

@lestikitty cheers, yeah that is a nice insight you give, reminds me of the kind of annotation that I was always told to do at Collage but always forgot to do :). Very informative, I'll try and explore these ideas next painting.

I always have the problem that my poses lack of dynamic they are stiff and just not interssting. Since I always seem to miss the spot where my drawing gets stiff. So today I tried to concentrate just on the pose. Before I started drawing I tried to take the time to analyse the pose, which I normaly don't do indept. And I stoped every now and then to step back and check the pose again. Everytime I did a snapshot to create like a drawing history...I would love to here what the other guys do to ensure the pose doesn't get stiff and boring.http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/6w2x-a.jpg20 minutes

tednindo, your steps look good to me. when i do casual drawings, i mostly start with line of action and combine it with a stickman. around the stickman bones i usually draw the body and then lay the clothes etc. onto the body.

whatever, speedpainting is war and war has no rules :) and with speedpainting i mostly try out new coloring and painting techniques. i am not so much about the sketching.

heres my shaolin guy, took about 35 mins. not quite happy with it.

thanks for the welcome blackraven235. too bad im gonna be gone on a trip for pretty much the whole summer with no way of posting any more sketches.

i drew the conclusion from viewing other works that it was having loose strokes that kept a drawing from feeling stiff. for me, its making sure i start off with a good sketch that doesnt feel stiff that keeps the end result from feeling stiff. im not comfortable enough with painting yet to get that sort of feeling for my paintings.

i hope its not a problem for me to post my paint of the pirate since i missed it yesterday. plus that shaolin ref looked more intimidating than the pirate one, heh.

i took way too long on the sketch before actually painting. 40 min

thanks fischkopf :) i usually have to do a lot of playing around with the "color", "saturation", and "luminosity" blending modes to get the colors that i want. that and a lot of picking a color, using it, seeing its not what i want, and going back and re-picking the color, haha.

i dont know why i try so hard to match the colors of the references when ive seen plenty of great speed paints with colors that dont match the ref.

you can have my color picking abilities if i can have your sketching skills XD

@ fischkopp

I don't know if it's just me, but I some how recognised that on your sketch i the upper body leans nicely to the front... and that isn't that strong in your colored drawing. I wondered why thats like that. Because it is the same drawing, just with colors..
The only thing that I figured out was that the belt covers a part of the collar, that could have some influence... I know its just a detail and I was just wondering

fischkopf
06-13-2008, 10:30 AM
@Ted

You caught the pose very well. But your right arm with the shield is a little bit too short.

Yes, you're totaly right! I guess it's that little detail. The concavity of the belt is the reason for that feeling.

@lestikitty

haha... yes, borrow me some of your colour choosing abilities. I could need them! : ))

To get more the effect of foreshortening try not to use hard lines if some lines overlap like on the right knee.

Absolutly, we would love to see anybody participate. The more people take part the more input we and anybody else gets out of this threat and thats the main purpose. Everybody has a special approach to solve different problems, like anatomy, perspecive and so on..

About the picture selection: You are right here and there the pictures selected are difficult for the given time frame. But I guess one should be still able to abstract the forms and colors seen. If not possible anybody can take as much time as he likes if he just makes a time specification if it took more then 20 minutes.

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/6w2x-k.jpg

@Vyse-soa: I like the way you put your lines. Dynamic and good weight. Here and there it could use some more details to clearify the forms.

@fischkopf: super fast. I would say that the back part of your lion is a bit to long and the head is a bit to big. It looks a lot younger. As for your "problem" with the colours.. I think there is no problem, just try to go with more contrast. Don't be shy with contrast, it describes the form.. but as you can see in my picture writing about something and doing something are two different things

@MadMatix: You hit the pose pretty well, maybe the legs in the front are a bit to short...

@arielmedel: nice to see you taking part in this thread. I hope you will contiue that in the future.
For the short time given you hit the target pretty well. Nice colours and the posture is good although not perfect. the hip should be more tilted to the left and your upper body is almost upright. Thats why your pose isn't as dynamic as the original.

TedNindo
06-21-2008, 10:34 AM
that was not so easy, the pose is quite difficult to nail. But it was none the less fun. I would say, that the upper body is to short, an that the hipps are not pushed forward as in the original. The pose is to flat. 40 minutes

Here's my contribution, I was distracted a lot by phone calls and by chatting, but I think it was an hour or a little over an hour to do this. I did the entire upper part in just one layer, and the legs in another layer.

I did this only using shapes, no line work, which makes it harder for me to nail the pose, What do you guys think?

@ arielmedel: hey really nice. I like the upper part very much. But I would say that the lower body and the legs are not in the right proportion - two big. You picked good colors and described the form really well. Go on. And yes I think you're right, in my pic she is a bit to thin, but what bothers me the most is that she is a bit to stiff in the upper part of her body. Especialy if you compare it with leons picture.

@ leon: welcome to the thread and thank you for your effort. Very nice picture. you exaggerated the pose in a very good way. it looks super dynamic. I also like the way you described form in her shoulder/arm/face. But the legs are a bit blury and a bit to big in my eyes. I hope you will go on in posting in this thread.

Ok, I know this is the 3rd human pose in a row. But i think this is a really nice one. A lot of information in his leg area (anatomy). And the pose isn't as easy as it looks. I guess it will be quite difficult to get him leaning backwards as in the picture. I'm looking forward to your contributions.

@satzer

I think it is not the anatomy you didn't capture so well, it is more the proportion of the horse that is a bit squashed and stretched. The snout of the horse is a bit expanded as well. To get more the dynamic in the picture I found out that the tail of a horse is not so unimportant. Try to get more an S-Curve into the tail next time. It supports the dynamic of movement a lot.
I like the glance of the horse. You implemented the glance very nice. It's convincing.

@da_ul

You caught the pose very good! The silhouette of the horse looks very accurate. The tail of the horse is a bit too dominant in my opinion. As I wrote to satzer, try to get more an S-Curve into the tail.
You put the glance of the horse on the right places but it looks a litte fungous. In a whole nice work. Go on da_ul! Want to see more : )

hey really nice speedpaitings. Great that you faced that quite hard reference.
ariel I don't think that yours is blowing :hmm:... I would say that the riffle seems a bit short and his left arm is a bit long, but you captured the scene very well. Good colors.
Leno you did it again, "simple" yet very nice, very dynamic. Love it.
Fischkopf that was a really fast one, huh? You made your pic a bit flat with lining up the two lines under the two feets, else really nice.
Matix you too captured the feel and the pose very well. I would say that the legs are a bit thin and you missed some key shadows like around the head. Thats why the form is not flawlessly readable everywhere.

Hey, nice attempt! I like your sketch... you tried to loosen more up. But it seems to me that you are a bit reserved because of the subtle lines. I like the thick lines in the middle of the figure. With thick lines you place more accents on the shape of the figure. Keep at it!

arielmedel
06-30-2008, 11:02 PM
leno780, wow. Itīs amazing given the time you spent on it. The arms are really good. the abdomen has many issues, and the real problem is her left breast. But as I said for a four hour piece, itīs great.

The only thing I would have a comment is that everything you do, except for this, is done as an unfinished regular illustration. Looks great but doesnīt look like most speed paintings. Most concept speedpaintings Iīve seen incorporate techiniques that allow the artist to make an illustration seem finished and realistic even if pretty abstract. They use custom brushes with pattern and stuff like that to minimize the timeframe on each piece. That way they can work fast and produce enough work. I think that if the idea is to do speedpaintings, your work lacks that.

TedNindo
06-30-2008, 11:05 PM
wooooooooooooow:drool: hey leno! Amazing!So if I had to crit which is not really nessesary but I still try to get something from the viewers of this forum so I also want to give some comments back... bla bla bla ;).
Ok, I would recommend using darker "black" in the Hair or, the panty.. and soften some of the edges, for example on her ribcage (left) or in the neck area. she looks a bit skiny on your picture.
The nose is a bit short too... don't get me wrong. I don't think you need to change these things but they came to my mind while "traveling" your picture.

As for the timeframe. I don't think time is that important when it comes to painting. But just for this forum I think it would help other peoples. If they see images like yours they often want to know how long somebody needs for such nice pictures. And theres no way you could compare a 20 minute picture with a 2 hours picture. So I guess it's just nice to have a certain timeframe.

And keep on posting...it's a pleasure!:drool:

arielmedel
06-30-2008, 11:57 PM
Leno, since you took some time to do that, why donīt you go back and correct the things people have pointed out. Itīs a very nice piece, but some details make it look like it was a bit rushed. Itīs not far from perfect so why just leave it at very good?

Iīd sure love to see a corrected version.

I have to mention the girlīs belly looks weird in the picture, thatīs why in your illustration it looks weird. My advice is that if you go back and improve your image, you be very careful with that, also you might want to improvise a little to make it look more ĻnormalĻ. If you leave it like that and include it in your portfolio, people wonīt think: oh, the belly looks weird but thatīs cause the ref pic was weird. They will just think: the belly looks weird and thatīs all. Just a suggestion. :)

Hi, I am Bruci...

Did this shark today which was a big pleasure. It took me an hour with several breaks.

I started with the background first, setting up the colours and the light direction. The i have done some basic perspective lines. Beginign with the main fin I also used it for proportion and size reference.

As always a lot of space to improve but could have been worse.

hey madmatix;
this new technic fits you well as it seems. It looks quite good. For sure there are some problems like the too short legs, but there are also some really good points. For example the right guy is very dynamic. Because of your linework it seems as he would move slightly.
And one thing that catched my eye also in your last picture with the woman is that your figures sometimes suffer the "marshmallowman-syndrom". That means that outlines of a figure are moving exactly opposit to each other. Which allways looks undynamic and does not exist often in the real nature. I try to explain that in an example. I hope you know what I mean. And I'm sure some other guys in this thread could tell something to expand that topic then I myself try hard to get rid off that problem.

Example on the left boxers right arm:
