    Here's my most recent painting. I did a rough sketch the other day, but just painted it this morning.

    Hey man, that's cool stuff, I just visited your profile and here I am!

    I do the same practice every now and then, it sure has a big effect on your skills but to get its full effect, I suggest you spend like 1h30 to 2h00 per painting, so you take more time with certain key zones, like the eyes, the nose and the mouth. By deliberately leaving the rest more sketchy, your paintings will get that rough yet lively touch.

    Keep it up, and refresh that dusty thread, we want more ;-p

    It's a very personal concept, but professionals like the CFSL's Shuffle Community limit it to 3h, their own definition of speed painting being: 'A painting produced in a very limited period of time, in search of aesthetical meaning and through a very personal process'
    Here is a video showing works of their first published book:

    Hope this helps,

    Wow, I can't believe anyone actually found this thread. I was just gonna let it fade into obsurity, but since people are taking the time and trouble to comment, I guess I'll revieve it.

    Panshi: Thanks for looking me up! I do a lot of speed paintings just to get my ideas out. Most of them I later develope into more refined paintings. So I don't typically show a lot of them. These ones I was experimenting with how fast I could possibly go and then checking the quality differences in time. By the way your ChoW piece (urban samurai) is just awesome!

    Trixtar: Thank you! I'm glad you like them.

    A Faux: Thanks! Yes I use references quite a bit, but probably not as much as I should. I sometimes use them heavily if I'm trying to work on something like anatomy, but otherwise I prefer to work from my imagination.
    The way I paint is by starting off with a large 85% opacity brush, and I just block everything in. As the painting progresses the brush size and opacity go down as the detail increases. So its: large and opaque to small and trasparent.

    Here's another speed painting I did of Cinderella. I spent aprox. 3hrs. on it.

    Not bad at all, those thumbs work great, all important details are visible. Do you plan on doing some character concepts?
    Your phoenix isn't bad either, although I would suggest you employ more definite brushstrokes on the beak, tongue and eyes area, that would be more captivating.

    Keep up the good work, man!

    This was a pencil sketch I did while playing chess with my 6yr old daughter. I colored it in photoshop.

    Nice stuff man! I'd suggest trying to paint with larger strokes, maybe? Your paintings have a lot of distracting details, compounded by the fact that your brushes look kind of fuzzy, which makes them look unfocused.

    Also, on your dragon image, the light source seems to be a strong light coming from our right, but it's not really affecting the dragon?

    Keep it up!

    I like looking at mug shots. Sometimes you can get some very interesting people from them. I get tired of everyone looking like models in art. I got these guys from a book of old mug shots. The guy in the red has kinda a sad story. He was accused of assasinating a political figure and held in prison for a looong time basically just because he was rough looking and could pass for a murderer. The guy on the bottom was a political prisoner that went on to lead a successful rebellion making him president (don't remember which south american country). The rest are just a handful of anarchists.

    Also sea serpent concept.

    Nice job on the mugshot series, I understand your point of view concering art trends and the frequent obsession with physical 'perfection'.

    Keep it up, nice colors on the sea serpent!

    mariea: Sorry I didn't notice your post sooner. Yes you are absolutely right about the light source on the dragon. Thank you for pointing that out. I knew something was bugging me about that pic.

    Panshi: Thanks man!

    Ok here's a quickie concept. A goblin hunter.
