    Veil | Speed Painting

    Howdy! I told you I’d be back this week with another video from my personal art channel on the youtubes. I’m also endeavoring to up the golly gee whiz attitude this week vs the droll nap that was a week ago. Bringing back the pep! Now, this video is my speed painting, in Manga Studio, of the past patreon exclusive line art, Veil. Now I know most people who read my blog, unless those might be crickets I hear, do their painting and coloring with more traditional methods… markers, watercolor (jealous, they hate me!), pencils, etc… so before you go BOO and not watch the video which is only 10…

    Up Do | Speed Painting

    Last week I shared the Speed Drawing video of this line art, Up Do. Today I have the Speed Painting video to share with you today. It took quite a while to paint so I hope you enjoy it…     I colored her in Manga Studio 5 with an interesting light source that I had fun playing with, low to her right, like the sun coming up as she’s getting ready for her day. I wanted her to have plenty of contrast in that lighting but for it to still look soft. To try for the look I wanted I tried painting in a different way.   In Manga Studio, vs…

    Stars Speed Painting Process Video

    I realized while working on my 2 latest art prints that digital painting has come a crazy long way since I made my last big piece in 2003. Photoshop 5.5 was the program I worked with (not CS5 like now lol that’s like 10 versions ago) then and techniques have really evolved. Consequently I am relearning as I go and really don’t know if my way is the best way (is it ever? ha) to do it but even if its not I am really enjoying it! I super love my markers but this is giving me a whole new avenue to play with color that isn’t as easy in…

    Speed Coloring – Windy Day

    This is a piece that sort of took on a life of its own. I drew this while watching Game of Thrones (I don’t watch much tv but that’s not to miss as I heart the books!). I was afraid the inked product wouldn’t match to the pencil but I really like how it turned out. I inked her with black copic Multiliner and the grass and clouds with grey. I really like the contrast just in the line work that way. Because of that I colored right on the original. I usually scan and print it just in case of a mess up (and they usually end up as…
