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 24 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:

Hovering spaceship!! :) Makes me wonder what it would be like to grow up near a spaceport in the distant future, seeing the starships land and take off. Perhaps your parents work at the spaceport refueling and repairing ships, running customs, or something like that. You'd grow up hearing wild tales from astronauts about faraway planets, bizarre alien organisms, attacks by ruthless space pirates, difficult dealings with sentient beings from other planets, hazardous flights near neutron stars, and who knows what else. Naturally you will want to become a space traveller when you grow up. However, your parents want you to take up a safe occupation managing ore shipments (and maybe marry that nice girl whose father owns several space mines out near Jupiter), and try to convince you that spaceflight is boring and hazardous- even going so far as to convince a local transport captain to take you on a trial cruise to show you how monotonous the routine is. Naturally, you rebel against a life managing ore shipments and sign up for an expedition to the Triangulum Galaxy- about as far out-of-system as you can get- and set out on a voyage so fantastic that even the old spacehounds' tales pale in comparison...
indeed, and i would like to illustrate that story!
