Here's the promised speedpainting tutorial!
I'm sorry it's so big, but I honestly suck at Flash and this is the best I could do. I hope that you'll find it helpful!

welp, watching this just made me feel bad about myself XD no amount of practice could ever get me to anything close to that level. just doesnt seem like a possibility for me. good job though, im sure this helped some people with more ability.

Don't feel bad. I might not be a pro, but I know that once you keep practicing and groove to your own pace; it might not be soon, but you will be able to scratch the canvas quite mightier than the gods themselves. And if your skills aren't at a professional level with a certain amount of practice, it is still guaranteed that you will have a smile on your face once you compare your skills by then and now.

Hope you dig this "inspirational", non-cliched speech that I didn't find off Google. ...please don't check.

eh, im still pretty terrible, and to be honest I dont actually have fun making art XD

well if you don't actually like making art and don't want to then you've got to decide whether you want to continue, but i know from experience and from observation that if you keep practicing you WILL get better. This isn't a probably and i'm not lying, i can guarantee you that if you keep drawing you will improve, while if you stop you definitely won't. I can honestly say with 100% certainty that if you keep drawing you'll get better, it literally isn't a choice it is a fact, if you keep drawing you will improve

Thanks so much for that great tutorial!
I want to start practicing speed paintings, because I love that style and you really helped me with understanding how this actually works!

But I have a question though. How much opacity and flow do you use with your brushes? Do you start with 100% each and turn it lower from layer to layer? Or do you just feel like changing it from time to time?

I love looking at speedpaints and this looks super nice and helpful!!

I wish there were as good brushes in paint tool sai, because it feels hard to paint things like leaves as in this tutorial when painting in sai ;; 

maybe I should just use photoshop more haha

Skitch0616 Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Student General Artist
This was so helpful! Not too long either. Before seeing this I was't sure of what I wanted to do with art honestly. Now I realize, it doesn't matter. Set a basic goal and work at that. Just draw or paint because it feels good--I now understand. 
I'm a beginner, but with good advice like what you've presented and an honest effort, I'll gain experience in no time.

Oh my goodness! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this tutorial! The most helpful and indepth tutorial on speed-painting I've ever found. I keep hearing people, especially professionals, talk about how important speed-paints can be, but almost no one has ever been so helpful as you have! I can't wait to do my first true speed-paint now, this is going to be awesome!

Thanks again!

Thanks for the tutorial, i never started this right. Can you tell me what brush you used for the trees? I saw various artists use this brush but couldnt find it.
Lisa-Smith Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really love the style you draw your pictures, to me it is more than perfect, thank you so much.
And I love the text you wrote this give me energy and much motivation :) <3
Ramufin Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I can get the other parts. But I cant do trees! GRRR. Anybody able to help me?
InMyImagination Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015
yeah I know what you mean. Maybe try and draw them on another canvas- just keep practicing and maybe copy + paste the ones you think turned out the best into it?

The way this artist draws them are very quick sketches and just fills them/ shades them. So probably don't think to hard when you draw them just do quick lines and join them together. If that even makes any sense :XD: Hope that helped at all :D
Ramufin Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Thanks! I'll try! And yes, I get what you mean! ^^
