I've been joining the Daily Spitpaint activity on Facebook. Link here.
A number of topics are posted each day. Participants can use 30 minutes to choose and paint a topic. No more. Pretty tough but also a very inspirational exercise. I feel like I'm learning a lot this way. The time constraint focuses you to be conscious about your painting.
These are the ones I've done so far since starting last week. Top to bottom:
Mark of the cursed
Chaos slime beast
Shapeshifters' true form
Chinese river dragon
hey Anthis! nice updates man! love all the life drawing work! always makes me feel bad for putting it off for so long ha, im just doing photostudies in the mean time I guess haha. but cool to see a fellow spit painter! haven't done one in a while, but I love the timed thing! makes you push yourself to just throw something down quick as you can!
NickyBeats: Actually I should be doing some more photostudies as well. Also, the figure drawings are nice but I think they're probably best when you actually follow up with work from imagination, like character designs. Right now my figure drawing is kind of disconnected from the rest of my work. Either way, agreed on the speedpaints! fantastic exercise. Are you a group member too?
Figure drawing again. 19/01/'15
Between 1.5min and 15mins per figure, I believe.
