Been browsing through your gallery for a couple of minutes now and I must say I'm impressed. In twenty minutes you manage to create worlds. characters and objects that engage me more than some of the movies I've watched. How did this post-apocalypse world happen? Why are the man and the woman meeting in such a remote location? Are those battleships, preparing for war as the sun sets, or simply voyagers heading towards the unknown? Through all of these 'simple' sketches (seriously,what?) I create stories in my head and it's quite beautiful. I don't think I've experienced anything like it here on DA before.
Hehe I got a bit carried away there, but I wanted to leave one comment describing how I feel about all of your artwork instead of a short comment for every single one of your posts. I'd love to see a graphic novel illustrated by you some day, or just buy a collection of artwork
Thank you very much Anna, for the extremely kind words. I'm very glad you got this out of my work, as its very much the intention. Especially for these 20min speedpaints, to nail as much story as possible with just the bare essentials. Thank you again!
you did some great atmospheric light in some of those - making the layered shilouette-like drawing style you are using foremost in your quickies more plastic and 3d cause of the lively, dusty light thatīs given so much priority!
my favourit compilation by far since quite a time. leaving me amazed and stunned.
So I thought. Thanks for the answer! The first three are my favourites, I feel real pleasure looking at them. Real eye candy. Keep it up! Also I wanted to ask you, do you do these just for your own amusement, or do you map out specific goals that you want to achieve by these speedpaints? Maybe a bit of both? I guess what I mean to ask is, do you feel like you're learning and improving thanks to these?
believe it dude, it is possible. you "only" need to have a superior understanding of colors and depth, know your tools by heart, and experience and skills enough to bring it all together without stopping and thinking. and this man has it all! if you look closely at the paintings, you see the easy and sometimes rough brushstrokes, just that they are placed and colored so perfectly they look like it has taken a whole more lot of effort. the magic of speedpainting.
besides, it is not nice to doubt his words here... no offense.
