    Thanks Z01ks for he great tip, it seems so simple but I did not know about the space bar.

    I know you are super busy with concept art, but I just wanted to pop in and say that I am looking forward to you next dump here. I am also in love with your photography. Each update is breathtaking, and actually pushing me closer to getting my hands on my own leica x1. Though still in doubt.

    Anyways, keep it up, and best wished to you and the family

    Hey Sparth. Thanks so much for putting this thread up. I have seen you lecture several times, but I have only recently attempted this method.

    I hope you don't mind folks posting images in your thread. It seems like we are all excited about the technique and have lots of questions about how to improve. This is my 3rd attempt at painting this way. It took my 45 min using 5 shapes that I quickly came up with a couple of nights ago. I just learned about flipping the canvas horizontally in order to get your shape moving in multiple directions. I ended up creating a selection around my main subjects then inverting the selection to paint around it. I know you have a better way of toggling your selection. But for the life of me I cant remember what it was.

    That spacebar thing is really helpful. Has anyone else found other cool methods?

    This is amazing, Sparth. I'm blown away.

    I'd love to see your workflow for colorizing Alchemy sketches. Some of your edges are so hard. Is it just more selections and fills?

    Custom Shape Layout

    Thought I would share a quick composition I threw together during lunch for fun. I'm finding custom shapes to be a great idea launch pad. Let's keep this thread goin, it's a good one.

    AbstractRealm: thanks for keeping this thread going.
    it's an awesome image!

    i'll try to give replies and updates soon for any new findings. it's so fun and useful.

    mpaquin: i don't know which one you're refering too, but Alchemy was a small episode for me, only for creating line works in a different way, benefitting from Alchemy features. i haven't used it for a while

    Hivemind: thanks!
    careful with the Leica x1 though. the image quality is DSLR like, amazing and all, but it's a sloooow camera. i love it though
