After posting some of my "speedpaints" on the doodle thread, Miss Beavotron suggested i make my own thread so as to follow my progress and whatnot. I wasn't going to do this because i am shy and felt safe hiding in the doodle thread, but seeing how a point was made of it i felt the need to make my own.
My goal in doing these speedpaints is to build my skills and understanding of color, light, values, and basic rendering as fast as possible. I will spend anywhere from 10-50 minutes on each painting and try not to linger on any certain one.
I will be working with heavily textured brushes as it is easy to pick out shapes, which i will then turn into a spaceship, figure, landscape, or whatnot. Some of these will start with a random photo and distort it beyond recognition and then build off of the shapes i see, and in others i will simply scribble until i see something.
I am doing this as an attempt to better myself as quick as possible and i want you guys to tear me to shreds and give me advice and tell me what is wrong and what you like, and all that. I just want to learn and get better. I will try and update as much as possible, most likely daily.
the following are just paintings from the doodle thread to catch everyone up, the last 2 are new ones that i did tonight.
feedback is greatly appreciated as always.
