In this three hour video on quickly painting images from scratch in Photoshop, you’ll see three different methods to approach speedpainting: painting directly from a thumbnail, starting with a rough drawing and painting the rest, and starting with random shapes and developing an image from the shapes that emerge.
If you’ve ever wondered how to capture your ideas quickly and (relatively) easily, this is the video to watch. See how to solve problems efficiently without worrying about details. Artists far too often have the ability to render and detail an image but lose sight of the bigger picture. Practicing speedpainting on a regular basis can focus your attention on the image as a whole.
