speedpaint

i think i'm getting the hang of speed painting on my DS, so today i tried some quickies in photoshop. Doing some random blocks of shapes until i 'see' something. This is what came out. It was about 20 minutes each. I should try some colour next time.

I have Starcraft on the brain again.

Yo dude.

These don't particularly grab me and pull me into them.

Things to keep in mind. Contrast. Composition. Point of interest. Flow.

Speed paints are a great exercise, but they're meant to convey a feeling or mood quickly and with few strokes. Nathan Fowkes is the best example of what can be done with few strokes. I suggest working from life for these. Use that DS on location to capture moments, but in big blobs of colour.

Keep at 'er.
