So talented! How long does this speed painting take?

I don't remember anymore. I think it was like 4-5 Hours.

You SPEED painted this!?! Holy artistic awesomeness!!!!!!! ;0 How in the world do you and others DO this fantastic work!????!!!!! I am completely in awe of you and your president paintings!!!! Unbelievably excellent work!!! I love the work you have done on each of them and am very glad you are having fu n with them and getting great feedback with them!!!! Yaaay for you!!!! :joy:

Keep the stress to a minimum, but if you're having a great time with this....by all means...keep it up!!! :) Smething highly creative and educational too is a great thing!!! It keeps learning interesting. :)

My model and rare hand drawn pencil or painted work are sooooo snail slow in comparison to the work you and others are doing with the computer. I really need to get into that computer art area of things. I keep puttting my money and efforts into other areas.....such as a new 2011 Hyundai Sonata I just bought today to replace my 2004 Intrepid which was totalled in an accident I had 2 weeks ago ( No injuries to me or the other driver or his vehicle, just my Intrepid. Pickup bumpers and a low sitting , wedge shaped Intrepid front end don't mix). So...New car payment and new daughter aside....no money yet for computer or programs or Canon digital SLR cameras either for now........

You chose a much softer style for doing this than with Jackson. I do like it, but some details seem a little blurry or off to me, for example: his bow tie isn't very well defined. His left ear seems a bit displaced, but maybe Lincoln had a slightly deformed anatomy, not sure xD I like the colours, and the eyes seem quite good to me too. Maybe the highlights there should be just slightly softer.

I purposely made the outside edges much blurrier than the face to give the picture more depth, and in each of these pictures I haven't put alot of details on the clothing. Remember, these are just speed paints, I spent only about 2 1/2 hours on this pic, so I wasn't going for a finished polished piece.

I know, I am a beginning speedpainter myself. I was thinking you were changing your painting style slightly depending on the President's character (like: hard lines for tough as nails Jackson xD) Keep up the good work anyway :)

After watching Planet of Apes he looks so much like monkey to me |D but expect that, he's probably my favourite of your presidents. Maybe that's because that was the first that I knew as a kid :)
