Thanks!

If you're wondering how I manage to make so many of these in one day...

it's because I have no friends.

This is something I did for Studio Art at school. Colored Pencil and Ink.

I use my own brushes. Basically, i just took pictures of random walls with different textures and then made them into patterns. Then I just applied the texture to the default Photoshop brush, played around with the brush settings, making it suitable for the tablet, and walah!

Video for this one coming tomorrow :D

Holy crap! You are so into this that you literally take pictures of textures and apply them to brushes? Damn. Although it's crazy, it's a really good idea.

I really like the compositions of your work. Very well done. However, this is not speed painting. Though done in a relatively short period of time(I would assume that each of these took at least 2-3 hours or more to complete), this is actually time-lapse painting. Actual speed painting would be along the lines of Denny Dent and Dan Dunn. You can check out Dan's work on youtube here:
http://www.youtube.com/user/dandunn57
All of Dan Dunn's paintings are done real-time, no time lapse was used.
Or a video of the late, great Denny Dent here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsJWnt6dw xM
Denny was know to complete four 4' x 6' paintings in under ten minutes. That is speed painting! I saw him at a local mall back before he died, so I can vouch for this being accurate.

I don't want to be a dick or anything. Just felt I should clarify what speed painting actually is.

Just to clarify, the term speed painting should only be used to describe works completed, from start to finish, in under ten minutes. If you go longer than that, it is not a speed painting.

Well, I don't think there's one exact definition of a speed painting so I suppose each artist can have his/her own interpretation of it. I know in the concept art world it generally refers to pieces done in the shortest amount of time possible while still clearly conveying the message. This is useful for practicing to keep brush strokes to a minimum. Most of the things I labeled "speed painting" were done in maybe 15-30 min, but to be honest, I would consider anything done in less than a few hours a speedy.

Nice thread :) ANother little reason to stay on newgrounds hehe.

anyways, to that confused davinci guy... I consider speedpainting to be anything under 1-5 hours. Depending on what the subject is. 6h + and its more of a finished painting really.
There is no real definition of speedpainting.. everyone has their own, but 10 minutes is just absurd. Thats not painting, its doodling...

anyways.. Keep it up!

Did you even look at the video links I posted? As for definition, Wikipedia defines speed painting as:

Speed Painting is an exercise, primarily digital, in which one paints on a time budget, using already developed methods to create a piece. Contrary to (somewhat) popular belief, "Speed Painting" is not the same as a time-lapse video of a painting. Speed Painting is a widely used term in the Entertainment industry, often amongst Concept Artists. While it is cloudy where the term was first coined, it appears to have been started on an art forum by the name of Sijun with 'The Speed painting thread', which still exists and has planted offspring on other art communities such as ConceptArt.Org and CGSociety.

Its popularity amongst internet-goers was drastically increased with YouTube's featuring of Nico Di Mattia's fan-painting of John Locke from the hit television series "Lost". While his paintings do not fall under the speed painting category, they are commonly associated with it due to the time-lapsed nature of the video. Another example of an artist misclassified as a speedpainter on youtube is Dan Morris (a.k.a moggo23) who does so-called "speed-paintings" of a mixture of people he knows and famous actors such as "Daniel Radcliffe/Harry Potter" and "Chris Tucker(Rush Hour 1/2/3)". A more appropriate example of a speedpainter would be the late Denny Dent, who made a name for himself painting 4' x 6' portraits of famous rock stars from start to finish during the course of a single song. His most famous piece being of the guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Another follower in Dent's footsteps would be Dan Dunn who also creates large scale paintings set to music in relatively short periods of time(typically 3-7 minutes).

Raw speed painting is akin to the "Alla Prima" method of traditional fine artists, in which there is no sketch or underpainting (such as in Di Mattia's paintings and especially in the works of Dent and Dunn). It is about using value, color, texture, and composition to create a compelling and narrative piece within a relatively narrow timeframe. The pieces usually have an "unpolished" appearance, which stresses the importance of every stroke made on the canvas, digital or otherwise.

Cba to read the copy and paste shite, read it yourself and get to the point. People's definition will differ, but I reckon speed painting is to do something quickly, and shows the artist's comfort with the program tools.

You know what ? I'm a member of all those forums mentioned on wiki pedia, Hey I'm even a regular on them! , and i'm also an early editor of the speedpainting definition on Wikipedia, therefor I can tell you that its edited lately with that bullshit about 3-10 minutes. I don't give a crap, I know what a speedpainting is, and its certainly not a doodle. Its about making a quick progression... Its not "a lot of crap" thats bunched together, but its artistic knowledge! The better fundamentals an artist have, the better their speedpaints will look.
Again, the term "Speed painting" is fucking relative, and its different for everyone.. ANYONE can edit wiki pedia so stop being a smartass about it.
