FAQ at the bottom, and don't feel left out if I don't answer your question if the answer is already in there...

compressed video from 23 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 23 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/tablet do you use?
A: Photoshop CS6 and and a wacom Intous 4.

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, I will not email you specifically with my brush-pack. No, regardless how many times you ask.

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). What you probably is asking me is the coloring thing I often do. It is just color on a separate layer on top of the image and then I go thru the different layer blend-modes.

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:

So super sneaky. Avoid details with shadows. I love it. Reminds me of Curiosity's Descent.

Beautiful!! :) But, how on Earth did you get a sketch of me hard at work hauling metals and volatiles from an asteroid to Terra Station XI? The Galaxy Corporation shipped me out there several years ago, to help construct the first space station built over 20 lys from home. It's a good job, quiet, no aliens trying to eat my face- just day after day of pulverizing chunks of space rock with small spatial charges and dragging them back to the station over a beautiful dusty cloud of rock, ice and debris in my space tug. That, and they have great dental. :brushteeth:
