Just messing around on #cgtalk after some speed painting and came up with this. I think this is my second or third Photoshop "painting" and probably took about 5-10 minutes. :rolleyes:

Thnx for ur comment :cool: it was just a little smudge that turned into ... uh the lcukdragon -_-
Neway I think ur speedpaint worked out very well..u used proper lighting and shadings.. u should consider working from this point further .. and make something really nice outta it !!
i think that would work out great especially when u got a tablet :)
(wish i had1)..neway good luck

Thats some great speedpainting there!! great skills!!

I found this in my private mailbox here. I asked Sleepless about his technique in the first few paintings of this thread -

My biggest cheat is.....paint in greyscale or monochromatic first then adjust the color. It's almost like colorizing a photo or laying out a traditional oil painting. I always work on a medium colored background so you only have to paint in the light and the dark shapes. (White paper scares me)

I must have forgotten this little bit of wisdom - but it inspired me to try speed painting again. It's not as speedy as it should be, I spend some time cleaning up edges and tinkering around as i always seem to do (1hr)

01-29-2003, 05:04 PM
"Fly on the wall" 10 minutes.

And if it does, we have a priest:

Holy painterclassic, nearly one hour.
This is my 300th post! Beers for everybody! :beer:

02-01-2003, 09:33 PM
Indeed! Beers for you, beers for me, beers for Sleepless for way-back starting this thread, beer for everybody that posts in this thread and beers for the priest, I hope he's not so morally pure that he doesn't drink


Very nice painting - I'll have to grab that Painter trial.

02-02-2003, 08:24 AM
OH........ *Trickster starts drooling like a water fall*

02-02-2003, 02:41 PM
Another round, Earl invites! :D Sure the priest drinks, beer is a gift from heaven for sure!

Today a mate from university called me and told me classes start tomorrow. Monday! I thought i could be couched in front the pc till thursday! Thereīs sure nothing worse than believe your holidays last three days more than they actually do. No smiley can express my feelings now. :cry: <--This is not enough.

hey escdesign. nice painting could maybe add some more reflections on the bonnet? anyway looks good you assclown.


02-07-2003, 03:56 AM
Very nice work, you obviously work for one of the premier visual effects houses in Sydney / Surry hills... ya? I can tell by the lack of blue sky...

02-07-2003, 04:11 AM
hi design man,

nice drawing, i cant decide what to say, should i take the normal cgtalk reply and say "whoa holy **** thats ****ing hot :beer: :beer: "
nah i'll give you some nice comments.

The lighting might seem a bit bright, and the reflection on the front scoop looks a bit funny, otherwise nice work doughnut puncher

02-07-2003, 11:08 AM
Eh ... I haven't done one of these in awhile. And I know, this isn't exactly a paint. But it was speedy. My wife called me at work this evening and said she'd like me to draw some sort of dragon for one of her kids that she teaches. He wants to be an artist and my wife feels that this would give him some inspiration. So, last thing I do at work - I crank this Lhasa Apso Dragon out in about 20 minutes.

02-08-2003, 11:56 PM
Mmm.. 10 minutes in Photoshop, doung a new avatar for forum.

Itīs interesting to see all you masters doing yer thang, this is my first ever post, as well as the first speed paint. Well, it infact is the very first Wacom painting Iīve made. Newbie here, good day to you all. I cought an interest and plan on rehersing more so someday Iīll send something more.

It took maybe two hours, considering it to be the very first, I believe thatīs fast...

Sorry, mate, I believe I donīt. I sure did it with more res but had some trouble sending it here with that res. It was always too big or too packed. Then I accidently saved that one over the original high-res pic... So, now would be a good chance to advice a poor little newbie who canīt even post his pics correctly.

Rudy Red
02-11-2003, 12:01 PM
But hereīs another one, 20 min this time... Iīll be doing these in seconds if I keep advancing like this. Second Wacom artpiece ever.

02-11-2003, 01:45 PM
Now that I got the hang of it, had to try to colour it up, hereīs what I came up with... Maybe additional half an hour or a little more. Letīs say total hour and a half. Salute to all of you who really really can get the feel of a realistic lighting. I made my best effort. Wacom painting 2.1 from me.

02-11-2003, 04:27 PM

02-25-2003, 10:03 AM
Well.. i was going to start a thread..but here it is waiting for me...
This is maybe 15-30 mins in Alias Sketchbook (the free version). I'm just starting to get into digital painting, I like this software's super simple interface and smooth pressuresensitivity. Keeps the distraction of photoshop's bells and whistle out of the question.

Let me know what you think?

02-25-2003, 06:16 PM
WOW.. i like it.. gonna try out that software :) i like sketches :D

02-26-2003, 04:03 PM
around 15 minutes,

I used a home made thin oval like brush for the whole picture, after that i used 1 filter to give it the weird effect.

02-27-2003, 09:04 AM
OK, here's another 15 mins...hope it's not too 'obscene' for the department of total information awareness....

<image removed>

02-27-2003, 12:14 PM
Redfuzz, that last image really went overboard. Although the first image you posted is still acceptable, the second one is actually pornographic. Please refrain from posting images of that nature again here.

02-27-2003, 06:05 PM
Hey Leigh...
I'm not going to get into an argument over what is and isn't pornographic. That debate will rage on long after you and I are in the ground. It's not my it were.
Kirt said he would talk it over with the other mods and see what the word is.
Either way, it feels like time to shift gears...

02-28-2003, 12:57 AM
Redfuzz, yup a debate about the definition of "pornographic" is certainly out of the question (yeah, I watched The People vs Larry Flynt), perhaps that was the wrong phrase to use.

Nudity is fine in art, since it is the best way to portray the human figure. That is really not a problem.
The reason I removed that particular image is because it portrayed a sexual act, and that is something that offends many people. It's also not really fitting for this forum.

Thanks for understanding :thumbsup:

(And in case you think I found it objectionable because I am female, that really isn't the case, since I am extremely liberal ;))

So go wild with nudes, that's not a problem at all! Just tone down a bit with the "action" shots :p

Thanks a lot :)

02-28-2003, 06:58 AM

I dibbled little over an hour in OpenCanvas and Photosbop.
I just practised on clouds but got carried away. Im not satisfied with the result. Something is wrong, but hey its just a speedpainting :)

take care.

03-03-2003, 12:25 AM
Another cloud speedpainting.
This time i tried a more realistic look than my previous.
Tips are grateful, i think im a little to afraid of using contrasts.

I've never been a fan of tutorials, because I think the whole process of trial and error and discovery are lost when you go the tutorial route, however... Stahlberg's cloud tutorial is the best and easiest one I've seen, bar none. It lets you create realistic clouds with unlimited detail, with ease. Go check it out.

LMAO, what did he make?! I mean, I know you (well from on here.), and anything short of a money shot would be acceptable... What did he make?

03-03-2003, 11:32 AM
Hey Matt

Yeah i agree. I just discovered Stahlbergs tut. Im gonna try tonight :)

03-03-2003, 07:13 PM
gasp! Idolent can speed paint! ...btw... I'm AKA "Octave13" in another forum, just so you know I'm not gankin' someone else's work. :p

I spent about an hour each, on these. Done in Open Canvas, and a little tweaking in photoshop, for the demon.

Would really like to hear comments and sugestions.

Looks like you blended too much. Needs sharper contrasts and brighter highlights.

03-07-2003, 06:59 PM
First try with my new Wacom tablet. It seems it will take time to be comfortable with (about 10 minutes for this :annoyed: )

03-11-2003, 12:00 AM
Hi, i'm first timer here . and these are my sketches. each one was done bout 20 minutes or so using mechanical pencil.
What do you guys think ?

if it's not working then go to:

redfuzz: when i looke at your cloud further away, it looks like painting from renaisance era.

augustus: i really like your drawing, it has a certain emotion in it.

this site rules! :buttrock:

03-11-2003, 12:58 AM
I think you rawk :D Very nice work :D

03-13-2003, 10:08 AM

time 20 min

03-13-2003, 07:15 PM
Really kewl sketches by you, Isuck! :thumbsup:

And nice work by you too, PeXel! I really like the style of the shades in her face, though it makes her look very pale 'cause you haven't used the same style for the rest of her... :hmm: But besides that it looks good...

I think I'll do a speedpaint too... or at least I'll try...:shrug: Haven't posted any pics... yet!

03-14-2003, 12:34 PM
I made this one at school in about 10 minutes
(only with a pencil)

03-14-2003, 03:09 PM

03-20-2003, 12:14 AM
Nice work here gang. Thought I'd throw a few pieces of my own into the mix...

Photoshop sketch on a Wacom pad... Just under 30 minutes...


03-20-2003, 12:18 AM
Another recent quickie of mine...

Bout 30 minutes on this one...


03-20-2003, 10:33 PM
DSG:EU #28 - "Mix two animals into one"

Octopus + shark = not a creature that i wish to
encounter when swimming in the oceans.
(but i don't think i would love to encounter a shark either).

im not so satisfied. had a better vision in my mind.

I just got a Graphire2, so I might as well post. I'm just getting into digital 2D, so don't worry, I'll get better. ;)

Anyway, this is a character from Jhonen Vasquez's comic book "I Feel SicK"
Probably took about 15 minutes while watching TV.

03-23-2003, 12:36 AM
Here's a pretty loose one...

1 hour on the Wacom...

03-25-2003, 07:31 PM
Thanks dude. I like the ideas in the thread in your signature. Funny stuff.

03-26-2003, 11:26 AM
great work in here!! I think somebody suggested a about a nice online gallery of all these pics?

Regardless, I thought I'd jump in with this little pencil sketch...
about 15-20 minutes (best guess), from a photo ref

03-27-2003, 08:24 PM
I took about 15 minutes this morning to do a quick speed paint since being inspired by everyone elses. I don't have a digital tablet so it's all done with my mouse. Let me know what you think...

You can select the level of compression for .jpg's - set it to a higher quality...


04-05-2003, 07:24 PM

Outa the loop for some time now, still unpacking moving boxes as a new Florida resident. I missed doing these quick paints.

04-18-2003, 11:55 PM
This one i spend like 30 min.
It didnīt end up as i wanted, but what the hell ! itīs a quikie.

Do you recognize my intention?:D

04-19-2003, 05:08 AM
lol ew... :O! :applause: :shame:

04-19-2003, 08:45 PM
Not entirely sure what constitutes a speed-painting, but this took about an hour including my dinner. No ref, just lots of smudge.

04-20-2003, 06:50 AM
5 minutes.

04-20-2003, 08:10 AM
About 10 minutes in Painter Classic...

Okey, here's my try, a speed paint of myself..use a mirror for reference.Done in 40-50minutes..:D
Hey, I am sure i grow better than that!!:wavey: :D

04-21-2003, 07:36 AM

04-21-2003, 10:49 AM
Is EVERYONE here using a Wacom Tablet? Please help his newbie out :D

I think I'm a worthy artist, but I only have 50 bucks to spend on a tablet. TIA.

04-24-2003, 02:49 AM
I have never tried to do anything fast with my tablet...
this turned out to be fun.

Took about 20 min.
i use a referance for the figure.

you used your own as a reference? :p ;) j/k

04-27-2003, 03:38 AM
Mecha, openCanvas 1.1...
I'm not sure exactly how long this took. Maybe a couple of hours not including the break I took before starting on the shading. That is fast for me...I'm a real slowpoke.

04-27-2003, 04:15 AM
amazing use of OC :)

04-27-2003, 12:41 PM
Great work sunbane, its really good I usually work on OC 1.1 too but never did such an amazing work like u. Well DOne
Keep up the good work

04-27-2003, 06:40 PM
Thank you guys! =)

I actually like oC a lot. Although it's simplistic, it's small, direct and very versatile. =)


04-27-2003, 07:37 PM

04-27-2003, 09:53 PM
I figure I'd give the speed paint thread a shot.
This image was done in photoshop starting from scratch.
I just started sketching in photoshop and this is what I ended up with. It took about 45 min.

04-29-2003, 04:43 AM

Im starting to get a bit more comfortable with my tablet. Now all I need is some planning skills that will prevent me from starting to draw a huge mouth 200px from the top edge of the canvas :hmm:

04-29-2003, 11:56 PM
Quick sketch, maybe 30 min or so. I'm practising some colour use. Tried muted pastel shades.

05-03-2003, 05:53 AM

05-03-2003, 08:14 AM
this is called hoover dam 2100, also known as a loose paint which needs an excuse

05-03-2003, 11:46 AM
Haven't done anything in months... I seem to have lost my inspiration :shrug:

This stupid thing took me 15 minutes:

05-03-2003, 04:53 PM
Hey Jeroentje, long time without seeing you around here!
One of the 10 most wanted criminals, 43 minutes.

WHoaa Balistic !!! the metal is really nice :P

05-06-2003, 04:17 PM
Thanks Kheemo. Chrome's pretty easy to paint, you just have to think of it as a non-planar mirror.

05-07-2003, 06:34 PM
Balistic : humm Im gonna try painting chrome next time :P

that one took me the afternoon ..approx 2h30-3h in photoshop with a ref pic

not much of a speed painting ..but it dosnt deserve a thread just for it so I'll post it here..

05-07-2003, 08:17 PM
OK i just bought the Art of finding nemo.. REally good book and was inspired to start a little project. Anyways this is just a test. ( no the project isnt about a fish ) The test isnt original artwork either its based on a color composition in the book though its not EXACTLY the same. Its based on something Ralph Eggleston did which can be found on page 157. The test was to test some brushes and trying to get a similar effect. I think im getting there.
Expect to see more of these ( this time orginal work ). Im doing this in efforts of getting better at colour and lighting .
