Speed painted dark wizard by torvenius Speed painted dark wizard by torvenius
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 dont 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 15 min.

If Frazetta used a computer to paint it would look like this. Amazing, cheers!

Beautiful work. Sometimes the rawness of speed is better than any precision time allows...

Can I use this image for my MtG fake set? Obviously I credit you signing your DA username in the line of the artist in the related card and link to your work in the description of the set.

Great job man. I'm definitely a fan of your speed paints. I especially like the composition and the color choice. Really easy to see how this could be taken further and makes me appreciate your process even more. Keep it up! :horns:
