Thread: Speed Painting
July 25th, 2008 #1Guest
Do you think speed painters lie about there time? Some of there paintings i could not do in a month not alone a hour.
I am also not so sure what is the point of telling the time you took the finish a painting, are you just bragging, or just making a excuse why in is unfinished and a bit crappy.

I'm sure some do exaggerate, and I'm sure some brag. The point of doing a speed painting and restricting your time is to get the impression and action down without a huge amount of commitment or overworking. Speed painting is a necessary skill to have when you're a concept artist and you have a half hr to do a piece before a meeting...

Painting is painting; digital painting is rendering... and I don't even know what the hell "digital watercoloring" is since if I tried to digitally watercolor, I'd get electrocuted.

Astroluc: What's the point in making the distinction? You wouldn't make the distinction between someone speed painting in oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor, tempura....so why would you with digital? Visually you'd likely be able to tell the difference right away anyway.
"Rendering" has many meanings...not just digital, and not just 2D.

One could argue that since gouache, watercolors, tempera, oil, and arcrylics are actual paints that the term speedpainting can be used to describe them without concern...
When one uses a computer program to create images, there is no "paint" involved, merely a representation of paint; a facsimile of paint, if you will. So, as a result, I think there needs to be a different term for digital "painting".
And I am aware of Rendering having many meanings; that is not the point of debate, here, since my usage of the term was correct:
Digitalpainting = Rendering
Rendering =/= Digitalpainting

Isn't á la prima a fancy term for analog speedpainting? Or am I confusing something here?

Astroluc: I meant that many consider digital paint programs as a tool...just as they do paints. You cannot change "speedpainting" to "speedrendering" as that would have the same issues you take objection to in the first place. I'm sorry you didn't get the medium you wanted when you clicked on the link but you should expect that in a forum where digital work dominates (especially if you weren't looking in the fine art forum). You should be able to enjoy and learn something anyway...many of those people are also traditional painters or have learned methods based on it.

What's next? Will you complain that the term hacker is now associated with IT related criminal activities even thought it is still used in its original form by some people.
In the end a majority decides these things implicitly. And no matter how much the minority complains they end up losing these useless fights most of the time.
It's easier to just accept this type of "inaccuracies".

Elwell was reffering to the latter so u just cant reply:
"I dont agree with u about using the word speedpainting for digital art because some people tout watercolor painting for digital stuff."

Does it strike no one else as odd that someone's being anal about the distinction between traditional painting and digital painting on an internet forum? If you want to get really precise with terms, then to see some oils and watercolors you need to get your ass off the computer and down to your local art museum.
The distinction between digital and traditional is blurred here because all we see are a bunch of pixels anyways regardless of the source.
