Wow really fabia? Thanks! And that's great to hear. I'm very much looking forward to them. I know you'll blast this lion pic to smithereens :)

@ Matsu thanks! I wasn't really sure so it's always nice to hear outside input.

@ Sumi thanks, and yeah... 24... Nothing compared to Legion, (from the Bible) though (1000 + demons)

Continuing experiments with non-outline, minimalist art.



Girl in a forest amongst fallen leaves. I used blue in general to try something alien but in the end i find the pic unsatisfactory, i learnt some things though so i'm not completely disappointed.





Jud floating waaay in the sky. Hint: It's NOT earth XD.

This is the art i'm hoping to achieve. Minimalist, and outline free:






I'm sure you'll recognize at least one =p.

Now i've been trying to find a perfect way to make such smooth lines (especially like the woman in the white dress) within acceptable times. Is illustrator fast enough to do this? If so, how?

I'm trying to make a comic so speed is everything, since i'd love it if i could use illustrator do you have any suggestions on how to work fast to make such pics? As in, Graphic or Mouse, Brush or Pen?

Or just suggest a software...

uh... the question is really disjointed so just throw anything that comes to mind to help me out with this. Basically i need to know:

1 - Speedy Techniques
2 - Recommended Software

illustrator or flash would be optimal for this kind of effect, and a mouse of tablet would be about equal in this aspect. for illustrator i would say go mouse n do something similar to what i was doing for the comic covers a little while back, if flash then use a tablet n have at it

theres a few videos i can find i think, though it may take a bit to find em again

vector art yes... Illustrator would be the choice but for speed you would need to know when to use the pen, pathfinders, brushes, blob brushes, custom lines, the hand tools... and goes on.

after you get used to illustrator you should be able to work at high speeds, its recommended to sketch on paper or another sketching program before, illus really sucks for sketching.

Another HUGE advantage of Illustrator is the creation of one object and then being able to just modify it freely to create another with little to no work, take the guys holding Tiana in the last pic (Heck yeah that movie was awesome xD) you can see that they're all the same, you create one and then rotate it, then add two in the back, shrink them a bit and change their skin color with just a click. Gotta love Illustrator :P

Hope that helps Lego.

Ah THANKS A LOT, this helps a hundred. I'll be sure to practice to get to a good speed at making stuff with Illustrator, and I'll try out flash again.

During my haitus, i was trying to find a way to train myself and also open new ways of thinking and creativity. So i venture into yet another art form...

Speed painting!  :D

Now laugh at my works! Here! 8)



Skytrain. Speedpainted over a reference of my friend in some run-down Malawian trainyard. 15 minutes.




Gangster with a shotgun speed paint. Done referenced from Pineapple Express. 10 minutes.




Speedpaint from reference of a soldier. Didn't turn out too well but i learnt something. 10 minutes.




No reference speedpaint of yellow sci-fi ships named Indyz. I gave up on it but i hope to add more detail and stuff. 10 minutes.





Blue rush! 20 minute speed paint. I took a picture of an utterly boring landrover and made it more alive... hopefully...






A jungle scene and a Canoe. 10 minutes. This is from the world of Jud Posessed. Jud was supposed to be in the canoe but my alarm clock rang...

Thankee!!

...Those 'other's' really have it in them except they hold off to let me feel better about my works ;).

Oh yeah, toasty, how about we visit that previous arrangement? You sketch and i paint? I'd like... three sketches, if you can manage. Sketches for ANYTHING, mind you. (okay, manga preferably but NOT BPH)

Wait, what arrangement? You mean Black Pine H? No, you just said you didn't mean that. So I draw anything and you do your digital shizzle with it? Ok, fine! Let's! I'll start as I get home tomorrow, had to pick up drawing anyway!
