speed paint 2012 02 20 by torvenius speed paint 2012 02 20 by torvenius
compressed video (from 20 min):


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 don't 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 26 min.


Q: you should have music on your clips?
A: I record these as a quick note. I simply dont have time to put music over it, and edit these. It takes enough time already to make them and upload them on a daily basis

Q: What program did you use?
A: Photoshop CS3 and and a wacom Intous 3.

Q: Where did you get your custom brushes?
A: from everywhere. friends and internetz, a mix

Q: Can you share your brushes?
A. I will try to put together a pack and share/post via my homepage in the future

Q: Do you know when you start what it will be?
A: no, almost never. I go with the flow and it often changes under the process. Thats why it often turn out like poop. sometimes it take 85% of the time to just find some interesting to take further.

Q. at *insert random number* min/sec in the clip, you do this and that and I cant really see what is happening, do you mind to tell me about and explain it all?
A. no I am sorry no (I don't have the time to sit and write x number of ppl personal tutorials etc - further on, there will be properly done video tutorials from me)

Q. You should have commentary over your clip?
A. I will make proper full length tutorial further on. these are just quick uploads.

Q. You should work for gaming Industry?
A. I do

Q. Why just all this speedies?
A. read above info again - for more work:

This is really cool, I'm a big fan of wastelands ;) I am also very greatful to you for putting up the videos, they allow me to see extra details I otherwise would have missed, and give me ideas as to how to improve my own skills as an artist :) Keep up the good work!

I think I asked this once before on a YouTube comment (and forgot to check it later), but there is one square brush I see you using pretty consistently and I'm kinda confused as to what it does or how it works. It seems to create thin lines as well as thicker value (and maybe it's just the speed of the video that is confusing me, and you are really switching brushes, or perhaps just shifting between the brush and pencil tool), but if you could explain that brush to me I would appreciate it!
