March 2hr Speed Paint Study Group

Sun Mar 11, 2012, 7:57 AM

Well since Sparkyyy's speed paint challenges are on break this month, I still feel the itch to keep practicing and keeping my hand warm for next month. So Bahkana, Marla and I sort of had this idea to have a few images we choose to do for the month. You can do them in any order and when ever you can get a study done. Same rules apply, 2hr time limit, no tracing, no color picking. The images you chose can be of any subject matter so long as its feasible to do within the 2hr time limit. Portraits, landscapes, animals, are a good choice as well as light architecture. Preferred if its photo you have taken, but not required. Just would be kinda neat to do something personal ^^ Anyone can join in and practice, just add a comment or send a note of your work! ^^

side note, not sure what to do about critiques... maybe we can ask sparkyyy to do guess crits? O_o

[EDIT] WOOT were in the home stretch! I plan on  finishing up the remaining few Saturday morning. Depending on everyone schedules, wanted to know if those participating wanted to get on skype and sort of review the month, sort of self critique each other? Perhaps Sunday morning if anyone is free? Let me know! ^^

Sometimes while working, or in-between doing something I'll update this page, and I all wont have the time to give my feed back. Please dont take it personal if I didn't comment right away. I like to really take time to study an image before I give feedback. When I can I'll update it because I feel its better then to have everyone waiting for me to do so.  <3 Thanks for understanding <3

Hi! Around the end of May I found this by googling 'speedpaint challenge' and tried it, but I only just recently uploaded the ones I did to dA.
Hope that's okay even though its not March anymore.
