Hahahaha that is so cool! I had to laugh out loud!
The octopus kicks a** and the complete image even more!
Lover your stuff! keep it comin'

08-27-2005, 12:19 PM
Great stuff, HOON! I really like your style!

I'm experimenting with styles myself, trying to see if anything suits me. This pic is to celebrate my sister in law finding out she's pregnant with twins!

I'm trying to get some practice in before college starts...

08-27-2005, 05:26 PM
It might be a little strange to advertise that, but I just recently got introduced to, which is kinda neat...sort of a dairy that can easily be used to simply collect the REAL daily sketches. I've started only a few days ago, but it's truely great to start the day by making a sketch and posting it in the blog! It also invites to write a little bit to it, which is fun all by itself...strange age to start with something like that, but truely entertaining. Anyway...if I can keep it up, it will have a new doodle every morning that can be 2d, 2.5d or 3d.

As of right now, I believe it's a great concept...but that may change, hehehe! :p

Feel free to check out my blog...

I just had a look at your blog. May I be your servant?
Your stuff is so cool! Not just the subject matter, but I love the way you render things, it has this intriguing look to it....

Got any tips for younger, less wise beings?

08-28-2005, 01:44 AM
HAHAHAHAHA! That's very sweet! Thank you! Hmmm...what an interesting idea...I could make a blog-tutorial-week....although I still feel like I'm not fully entitled to teach, since I know just how much I will have to learn to get where I feel I want to be. Too many things I don't know yet or don't have the proper command in. This might be very related to the fact that I hardly ever work with reference and I don't say that to brag or pride myself with it in this case. I somehow expect that at some point I just understand enough to realize a reality off of my ideas. But it's far more than reality or "just" reality. It's somehow also about this eery quality of classical paintings. I'm so thrilled by some of the early impressionism, when there was still a strong desire for realism in there, but the mood was more dominant. It's so facinating in terms of skill and sensibility. I know I'm far from that place and inch my way towards that quality. Look at 'freaking' Enayla (and I really, really mean that in a good way). Her work is this sort of masterful execution towards what I'm talking about. Yet, I seek just a little bit more flexibility for myself. :argh: :wip:

However, I'm more than happy to share my discoveries and offer them to you! It's probably a great exercise for me, too! :bounce:

I've just made another painting, yet, I may actually futz with it some more (very unusual thing) and then I will post it either tomorrow or's a curious one, I think...or hope?! Another experiment... :hmm:

Thank you, again! And we could talk about the whole servant thing at some point, too! :D


08-28-2005, 06:36 AM
:thumbsup: Sounds good to me!!

About the servant thing: I'll do anything, up to a point! :scream: :D

08-28-2005, 06:51 AM
You ARE scaring me now...and I gotta be careful with the public flirting here! :eek: :banghead:

I'll post the new image tomorrow morning, I think...just came home deadly tired!

Hey Augustus, wicked character...what motivated you for that one...HAHAHA! Did the whole servant thing inspire you? :applause:

08-28-2005, 07:44 AM
Hehe, thanks. I was trying to draw something monstrous and I got this. Missed big. :) Btw, your blog is gorgeous, bookmarked. :thumbsup:

08-28-2005, 10:32 PM
Thanx!!! :buttrock:

I'm still trying to figure out what I'm gonna put in the foreground of the new image...I somehow don't expect it to become anything, because it's just too damn unusual for me to work on a PICTURE for any extended period of time. But what's great about it is, that I feel like it needs something very correct or accurate in order for it not to fall apart. I want to put a human in there and realize that he or she or both need to be relatively perfect or anatomically it's a challenge for me. More so, I'd love to get a sort of classical touch to it and that's probably the biggest challenge to me. I'm almost a little worried or even scared... ...hmm... I guess I shouldn't be, but well... :wip:

08-29-2005, 06:32 AM
Wow loads of good stuff here!

08-29-2005, 01:46 PM
This was going nowhere fast....

Great updates people!

me draw while watched T.V.

You were watching Futurama, right?

08-29-2005, 03:59 PM
hehe sure :drool:
nice interpretation :thumbsup:

08-29-2005, 04:21 PM
HOON, that internal acting guide is unbelievably tight, I love how it jumps from cartoony expressions to the bushy eyebrowed blob for the finish.

Metaborg, I like your red/black sketch (there's a word for that style of drawing :?), lots of expression and great contrast.

Erilaz, try adding a bit more contrast and color into your shadows. You seem to be washing out or desaturating your painting with greys for shadows, this is the exact problem that I've been working on as I only drew in graphite, charcoal, and other grey mediums until recently.

Keep em coming everyone! :scream:

08-29-2005, 05:24 PM
nice work everyone

just messing with Painter and did this crappy little gif

08-29-2005, 06:57 PM
Gfffff! thats cool Andrewley! U r talented ;)

08-30-2005, 04:40 AM
I manage to update my blog ( daily now, but thought I'm gonna throw in the latest here at the speed paints...although,'s not really a speedpaint....took a few hours during the day...not continuously, but still...I kinda like it, even while it's terribly cheesy...

here it goes ( mostly openCanvas1.1, but some heavy photoshop dinking around...):

08-30-2005, 04:47 AM

Great piece!! :thumbsup: *Me likes green* :)


08-30-2005, 03:36 PM
Thank you so much, Rebecca, of all the people, because my anatomy is truely lousy, hmm, although, it's not really the anatomy that's not so great, I just don't take any time to really think about it or execute anything with any reasonable care. Let's take the goofy legs for instance. I just scribbled it within the flow and liked the shape. Later I'd always think to myself "grrr, man, gotta do something about that leg...grrrr...ah well". But never once I went in there....lazy? Nothing feels good enough to spare any extra effort where it may not help? I don't know what really goes through my head then.... Anyway... I'm proud of what I can do from the solitary top of my head (does that sound weired?), I mean just by imagination, but I know it's time to ignore pride again....I'll go check out your lessons!!! :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

Thank you, again! :bounce:

08-30-2005, 06:35 PM

Wow, just saw your post ~ thank you very much, coming from you, these are big compliments!!! :D Your work is amazing, and to say that your anatomy is 'lousy' is just crazy...I've seen your website a few times, and your work is just incredible! :) So thanks for checking out the forum, and I really hope you will participate in the Open Figure Drawing Workshop threads ( (we are on the OFDW 002) ( ~ and it would be great to see your work on any of the other threads! :bounce:

OFDW 003 starts Sunday or Monday! :)

Cheers! :)

Used a couple of photos for reference and came up with this, about 40 minutes. C+C welcome. Bought a wacom intuos last week -- this thing is fun should have gotten 1 a long time ago! :) Inspired by some of the great "warm" shots seen here.

08-31-2005, 07:40 PM
Really nice Mattew-s

08-31-2005, 09:45 PM
Wanbao, stellar light rendering and such little time!

Also, the last few drawings have had really vibrant colors and expressive brush strokes, I'm digging it. I love seeing so many different styles on here, for the longest time I would only see heavily blended paintings on the digital medium, the heavy use of textures on this thread oftentimes add so much depth and life to the paintings.

I really appreciate the occasional tutorial and/or progress paintings that I've been stumbling across.

Quick like a bunny everyone, paint another! :buttrock:

PS, cool animation Andrew.

Rebecca, great idea for a thread! I plan on getting involved in all of this CGtalk biznaz, but my home computer is currently fried and I'm restricted to pencil and paper. It's actually been a bit refreshing working outside of the computer however, I haven't mastered Corel Painter yet, so I'm a bit restricted yet with my wacom. I'm contemplating whether I should upgrade from 8 to 9, or just tough it out until Corel Painter X, whenever that may be. :)

09-04-2005, 10:17 AM
tiger1313: Looks absolutely awesome, how long did it take? Anyway heres mine for the day. Was looking for inspiration of what to draw when i saw my guitar in the sunlight, and i started to paint. After about 2 hours heres what i ended up with.

Backgrounds very borgin but I wasnt sure what to do, any ideas?

*Edit* i resized the pick. Thanks BrutalMonk

09-04-2005, 10:38 AM
O_O Wow! Tiger! Your brushwork is awesome! I really love the concept. Great atmosphere!

Chalkie, nice work i dont really have idea for the bg, maybe a dark color. i donno. Oh, and the pick is a bit small. Its almost as big as the space between 3 string.

09-04-2005, 02:23 PM
These paints really rock... I was I could do colour allready.

I found it was time to gather my own idea's and speed paint, turned out to fit the dsg in the end. But it's more suited to this. ABout 2 hours with all the fidgetting.

09-10-2005, 06:01 PM
This isn't actually very quick speedpaint - I planned to do a bigger scene with these characters and spent some time looking for references etc., but it didn't work out so I just wanted to finish the piece quickly and get it out of my eyes :)

In this piece I got ispired by listening to Brian Eno's Dunwich Beach, Autumn 1960 track from the On Land album. I guess this is the first time I painted something _just_ the way I visualized it. Took ~1h.

And in the end a random 1 hour ww2 scene from Iwo Jima :)

09-11-2005, 06:44 AM

Also here is the WPE file ( , though you may find it messy - it's my first time after all.

I think I'm finally getting the hang of ArtRage.

Done on a TabletPC in ArtRage/InkArt, about an hour, or hour and a half-ish.

edit: korpi, the lighting and mood on your last one are just fantastic.

Amazing .. could you perhaps try a screencapture of one of your images sometimes ?
Would love (as i always do hehe, im a sucker for videos) to see how you create thoose images, and that style :D

Anyways great work ! :D

09-14-2005, 12:09 AM
@ m@... :P I bet it's the practice thing isn't it? :D I really love your speed paints. All the little details inlighting and behavior of it, seem in place, really great.

Well, I just started this today to get my mind of, hope you like. Took a lot of time, but it's all new to me. :p

09-14-2005, 01:05 AM
M@. very very like your speed paints....:)

09-14-2005, 01:18 AM
Nice ones, though some of the straight lines could be .. straighter :D hehe
Think they would be very cool if you upressed and added a bunch of detail :D Really like the mood :D :D

09-14-2005, 08:12 AM
OC, about an hour.

LoTekK, Brutal Monk: Thanks.

Great stadium wanbao, maybe I should do one myself.. :) Great mood and atmosphere you got there.

Supervlieg: Nice design, especially that "sail" is a real eyecather :)

A 10-15 min doodle in Photoshop, pretty much nothing and kinda abstract but I think it looked nice :)

09-14-2005, 01:03 PM
These are fantastic :applause::cry:

Okay goro finally inspired me to get into the game again. And of course the recent amazing images did it worth to get me inspired.
Anyhow here is a quick 3 hours total (i think)... hopefully better than my past work :D

I tried more loose style this time, and just had fun for a couple hours. Himalaya and Tibet
have been a great inspiration to me, so I wanted to make a journey and paint something
of that world far away. These both are partly from photo references - background, light
and colors are mostly my own.

This one is fully my own illustration, not sure if I'm that happy with it, but a little c&c is always welcome :)

m@: That last one is so cool :) the colors and everything, simply amazing. great piece.

A sketch for this scene I did almost three months ago back in the army. I had some time free during the one week drill in the forest after my watch, and I sat down reading some poetry. I got inspired by a poem about Cortez and his landing to the new land, and I drew this and couple of other pictures. I think I'll do few pictures more about this same theme, this was the easiest sketch to do :)

09-19-2005, 01:54 AM
here's my first contribution.
just a quicky from today. (
what do you think? about 30mins in photoshop.
of my good friend reus who has dreams of being a gangsta.
i'm 16, so don't be too harsh please

09-19-2005, 08:45 PM
still working on style...
unfinished rough copy of a brom's painting done on painter in 1,5 hrs... (

09-19-2005, 09:52 PM
Xillion: Nice one, i recognized the reference :) Though I think the right side arm (his left) is too short
goro: awesome scenes

A speedie I did for a simple step by step tutorial I'm going to write some time soon. The
ground ended up little messy but I didn't want to fix it later, c'mon, it's supposed to be
a quick one :P

09-19-2005, 10:10 PM
thnx korpi... I did that in a hurry (while stealing time to chemistry ;) ) so there are major flaws.Anyway, more than anatomy, I was concentrating on light and texture ...trying to capture brom's atmosphere/style cause I want to incorporate it on my spectacular 2d entry...

I'm looking to recreate the directional feeling of the stroke on canvas, but I can't find the perfect settings. In this one I created texture with the grainy blender and used the oily brush variant for the main colours. I'd very much like to drop using the blender, but the problem is that the brush is too loaded with colour and covers the canvas texture too much (while the grainy blender recreates the texture). Only at the end of the stroke I get the desired 'transparency'. I tried lowering the 'load' variable, to simulate little paint on the brush but I can't seem to get it working.

I'm open to suggesions... cause, your works are really good and inspiring.

09-19-2005, 10:31 PM
xillion : thanks

korpi : thanks and, that beach picture is amazing

goro : great, I like this retro minimalistic style. Great colours too :)

09-19-2005, 10:33 PM
good stuff everyone!

09-20-2005, 07:53 AM
45 minutes, Photoshop.

09-20-2005, 08:54 AM
One more... 30 minutes, Photoshop.

09-20-2005, 01:26 PM
still investigating style...
another rough copy of brom....
unfinished, off proportion but...does it look more painterly ? (I have to get back to study...I hope to find some comments/advices when I get back...) (

(done with painter IX and standard oil brushes, thick+feathering+smeary variants + some palette knives strokes)

Goro i gotta ask.. what pencils / pen are you using on the sketchbook ?

09-22-2005, 01:40 AM

09-22-2005, 05:00 AM the guy in front of you has a huge head :P

09-22-2005, 08:33 AM
thnx matt vogt!

Swoop: Nothing special Sometimes normal "B" pencil And sometimes colored pencils.

another great one m@.
I would suggest to make the ground also white. That would look very stylish I think...

09-22-2005, 12:47 PM
Fast landscape with the trial version of Revelation "natural art" (screen captured with printscreen key and import+saving+cropping in photoshop)

red flowers are a bit distracting, aren't they ?

09-22-2005, 03:01 PM

09-27-2005, 06:43 AM
Hi!I'm coming!

09-27-2005, 12:08 PM
Did a real quickie just now. Figured i'd post it and see what happens.
It's nowhere near the quality you guys post. but anyways...

Poor guy...
His girfriend was 'all ****ed and overrated. he though he was gonna be sick
and it was her fault. this was the end of everything. she was the end of everything'....

09-27-2005, 01:43 PM
spyro: as i said, just cool!

goro: always like the story elements in your pics!

JFB / M@: great work

09-27-2005, 04:22 PM
hi all :)

ps + mouse | 1.5h

09-27-2005, 08:50 PM
Henrik and m@ - your last pieces both ooze with atmosphere.

So many great speedies recently, goro as usual :thumbsup:, and Spyro is on a roll (I've spent my fair share of time riding that subway and your Spidey rocks :buttrock: ).

Vahn - I love the saturated colors and those hills. Perhaps lay a couple more brushstrokes to the lower left as the canvas looks blank in that spot, rather than flowery like surrounding areas. Regardless, good schtuff.

All of this stuff is just great, keep it up. Feel free to post any step by step pieces that show your workflow. :D I'm a bit miffed as to how many layers I'm comfortable working with and how to work in the great texturing that I'm seeing in many of these pieces. I wouldn't mind seeing a few of your methods.

PS Toobi, was that done in Painter? Very cool image!

09-27-2005, 10:21 PM
henrik, m@, goro> sick stuff (meant in a good way :P )

09-27-2005, 10:58 PM
Hi there!, This is my first attempt to a speed paint. Photoshop, 40 min.

goro :thanks, and sweet, great mood as always
rebeccaK : thx ~
jfb : cool chars!
spyro : I dig that one
toobi/knilblink : thank you
annisahmad : thanks, and I really like those silmarillion pictures.. keep them coming !

Everyone nice work! I am intimidated to join you guys.

09-28-2005, 02:30 PM
one after dylan cole....but I guess I failed.... :(

09-28-2005, 03:33 PM
Bin - Very cool images.

Goro - I'm not terribly familiar with Dylan Cole or at all, so I can't say whether or not you beat him at his own game, but I can say that your image itself didn't fail. It has a great sense of depth. You also have knack for working in all of that flora and fauna into your images, your jungles are full of life. Perhaps the colors desaturate a bit too quickly? Anyways, I'm going to leave speedpainting jungles to the pros. :D Well done!

Annisahmad - I love all of your grand scenery. Like Goro you use such large and definite brush strokes, yet the painting appears very detailed. That's along the lines of what "Sargent" was known and famous for, eh? Also, thanks for commenting on one of my old graphite portraits on DevArt, I just caught your comment recently. :)

m@ - I'll be spending my fair share of time staring at you last painting, so fantastical! I can hardly believe that the images in this thread are "speed paintings." I'm presently working with Corel Painter 8 and nothing is speedy about my work at present, although I'm having a blast with the program. ^_^;

Keep at it, everyone. Good stuff all around.

09-28-2005, 03:53 PM
-------Knilblink thank U

09-28-2005, 05:23 PM
Hehe thnx well Dylan Cole is a master of matte paintings! I just watched one of his gnomon dvds and tried to paint a similar image from memory. But it didn't look like as I wanted...that's why I failed. But thnx for your kind words!

here is another speedy.

09-28-2005, 05:46 PM
woah the last one is beautiful goro ..very nice colors :thumbsup::bowdown:

09-28-2005, 07:29 PM
Goro- You did not fail. You Gorofyied the image. You made it yours. Now who failed is me. just look at how terrible my painting is. Keep posting you work. It is good to my eyes.:thumbsup:

09-29-2005, 12:48 AM
Thanks guys
Goro, I like that last one.

09-29-2005, 01:03 AM
annisahmad, goro, jfb, bin: great work guys!

M@: your last one is just amazing!

knilblink: no, that last one was done in PS. i don't use painter very often these days ...
