It's been a while since I posted here. Due to the amount of work that came my way in the last year I've become more of a lurker again. Well, here's an attempt to break that silence with a new sketchbook.
The idea is that I sit for maybe two hours in a row a spend no more that 15 minutes on a sketch. To keep it simple I've picked one brush for the paint and one for the eraser. The first sessions I will do in black & white, when I become more comfortable with the time restraint I will try to add some color.
Hope you like my initiative and I appreciate your feedback.
Here's the first batch; They took more around ten minutes each (I was more strict with myself in the beginning)

Awesome stuff! I feel that your character work is stronger than the environments though. Ssoo... would be interesting to see more of how you tackle the environments in order to improve them.
Regardless- thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks, I took your advice and spend some more time on environments.
Do I need to practice more or what?! It's really hard to finish a scene in 15 minutes. I have to admit that not every single one of the sketches was done in under 15 minutes. Some have a couple of extra minutes on them... not much though. I also changed my brush, I needed something a bit more clean. Please let me know what you think of them.
Here's a new batch, this time I went for color... and that's not easy to do in 15 minutes. I also tried to capture a 15 minutes session on video but CamStudio slowed my PC down so much that painting was no longer possible...
I'll try it again on a faster PC.
