speed paint 2012 11 19 by torvenius speed paint 2012 11 19 by torvenius
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 22 min:
[link]

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 22 min.

FAQ:

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:

When I was a kid, one of my favorite Playstation 1 games was Abe's Oddysee and Exoddus.. This picture gives me some vibes from those games. :) I think it's because of the colors and that platform where's that character is sitting.. Awesome pic!

Okay, this is either an assassin sent to kill me or someone casing my apartment to figure when to come and kill me later. Which would be an easy task for a professional assassin, were it not for the fact I am a Xijarglian from planet Xijarg in the Greater Magellanic Cloud, and thus can fade into the background by altering my skin color, and thus concealed use my horde of symbiotic Xixli wasps to paralyze any attacker without revealing myself. Or maybe I will just split into several separate lifeforms which will then escape through the ventilation system and reassemble elsewhere. :D Nice work, Axel- I like the atmosphere in this speedpainting.

Ok, now after seeing alot of these speed-paitings of yours, it's occured to me that you always draw this 'sniper' bloke, is he a character of yours, maybe, or do you just have brain surgery on the mind?
