    first attempt at digital painting

    well i finally got round to buying a tablet last week and just to get me started, decided to have a go at one of the speed paintings i found on the web. Took the best part of 3 hours. I found it quite difficult to decide what brushes etc to use in certain places. Hopefully you can give me some pointers as i know it needs a bit of work to reach some of the standards i see on here. I think it could do with being refined as it is still quite sketchy in places but hopefully with your help i can do you all justice
    thanks all

    Make a sketchbookthread and start drawing. Don't try doing too many speedpaints if you are just starting out. You should take you time, use some reference and try to observe as best as you can.
    If you want to do a good speedpaint, you have to know how to do a "normal" one.

    I think you're off to a pretty good start there. Just keep drawing and messing about with different settings and you'll find the way that works best for you.

    Here's some good brushes for photoshop.
    I don't think there's need for a huge number of different brushes. Maybe 3-6 for different materials you're trying to mimic. (skin, fabric, metal etc)

    OK, thanks for the great comments folks, what i meant by speed painting was that i found the final image produced from a speed painting and basically tried to reproduce it. I will get some photos people and try to recreate the realism.
    Thanks again
