“We’re doing mighty fine I do suppose/In our streak of lightning cars and fancy clothes/But just so we’re reminded of the ones who are held back/Up front there ought to be a man in black.” -Johnny Cash

Amazingly enough, this actually is 30 mins in photoshop. I made no big mistakes, or at least, I don’t think I did, so I didn’t spend any time fixing stuff… just doing stuff. Maybe I’m getting better, I dunno. XD


Here is my try on wearing black. I try to keep loose, conceptual style. 35-40 minutes in Photoshop.




Been a long, long while since I’ve posted in this arena, but I’m trying to sharpen up my talents in a hurry, and this is the place to do it!

Hope ya like:

Wanted to try something different today, so i tried to “speed paint” with oil and acrylic. I missed my undo and color picker shortcuts :stuck_out_tongue: but it was fun.

Around 2h 30m - Acrylics and oil on watercolor paper.
