Speed painted pirate kid by torvenius Speed painted pirate kid by torvenius
I start almost everyday with a speed paint to warm up the wacom board. I often film these speedies, to keep track on my process and see what I am doing right/wrong. I thought I might wanna start share these with you.

These are SPEED paints. I have a timer I set for 20 min, so most of my speed paints are around 20 min. If a speed paint takes more than 1 hour, I dont think it's a speed paint anymore, then it's an illustration.

I sometimes use my speed paints as start ups for other work, and it's kind of sweet to have a huge folder with "sketches" to choose and pick from if you're running low on ideas some times.

also, there are always things you see as soon as the time is up, that you realize you should have done different, and there are always loads of stuff you miss or do wrong. But the important thing is just to nail something, a feeling and basic design in 20 min. This one is done in 20 min.

I know u kinda answered my question but i noticed you used a sort of randomised rectangle brush as the starting brush for alot of your work, so i was wondering if you could tell where you got it from or one similar, as i have been lacking a good base brush to use in my work.

Absolutely love this :D The loose line work is brilliant, I often feel something is lost the moment we start tightening up. I might have to try this at work this morning!
Thanks for the inspiration!
