I spent 1 hour doing this tonight, based off a 1 inch pencil sketch I did a while ago. It was good fun!
If other people want to post their speed paintings here too then feel free! /images/graemlins/grin.gif

Freaky, but in a good way. I like the skin texture, very disturbing.

Here is this mornings speed painting.
It also took 1 hour and I based it off a 1 inch sketch once again. I tried to loosen the flow up a little with this one, taking some inspiration from craig mullens style.

Awesome man, and great way to bring the colors around the skin tones. I like.

Ooh the mindflayer guy is awesome. I really like the texture of the skin you've got in both of the pieces. Nice work indeed.

Not a speed painting. I wanted some practice painting in photoshop without using too many layers, the smudge tool or anything else fancy. It felt good to rough things out more and it helped me from getting too obsessed with details. Still lots of perspective issues though and lacks colour.
No refs used /images/graemlins/laugh.gif

older speed painting, I did this the other week but was too distracted to post it. Another fat ugly guy, which I feel needs more depth to it.

I hope speed Sketches will do fine too...

I just started with the eye and added what i thought suited
baah:P I hate it already so there will not be a 120 or 150 minutes pictures.
Nice fast painting job spacemonkey:). you master the skill of painting far better&faster than me for sure;)

how are you achieving the color in these paintings?
just very quickly, if it isn't a problem - what blending modes, colors, steps etc.

Amphi, sketches are welcome too. interesting creature there!
Hi killingpeople, I guess it depends on which pic you want to talk about. I have tried to vary how I've worked in each one, trying to break my learnt habits and force myself to try different methods of working.
The first pic I think I used allot of solid painting normal mode with varying oppacity through the shortcut keys. Others I tried to used more hardlight in combination with normal/opacity. Too often I find myself accumilating too many layers so the big ugly creature I forced myself to only ever be working in 3 or less layers.
On some of the pics I used a bunch of layer adjusts - painting in the alpha mask as a quick way of controlling highlights and shadows and avoiding the saturation issues of dodge and burn.
If anyone has good suggestions for a fast workflow for photoshop (speed paintings) then chime in!

Not a speed painting, just a fun painting all in photoshop today. /images/graemlins/smile.gif
I really like this new one. The texture and expression and lighting on the face is great. I woulda probably taken the darks a bit darker (especially the background), give it a more eerie feel, like he's looming out of the darkness. Right now I think his tonal values are fine, just against the background with a similar value, it lacks depth.
Cool stuff though. Makes me wanna try a speedpaint for this thread!
 Scribbled a basic thing out in colour on one layer, didn't like it much, so did a Gaussian Blur on a 15px radius, then picked out and detailed the bits I liked. I've been using this technique a lot recently, just copying a layer, blurring it then painting over - it leads to improvements in general proportion and lighting for me, because i usually end up focusing on detail when I should be looking at the big picture. Try it, might work for some of you too! /images/graemlins/smile.gif
