This is the first 6 minutes of my Hellboy speedpainting.

It's at the original speed, rather than a speeded up version, so you guys can get a sense of how I'm working and hopefully pick up some tips.

I'm still getting to grips with the screen-recording software, but rest assured there is no incredibly loud music with this one!

Part II can be found here --> [link] :D

I use CS2. I also use Windowblinds which allows me to apply different 'skins' that change the appearance of all the windows that are open on-screen, hence the unusual chunky, black border to the document window. :)

I've never used Painter myself but I'm sure you should be able to find something similar for free download.

I tried searching for some with Google - there seem to be lots of possibilities :) -> [link]:official&client=firefox-a

That's an easy one. :D While you're using the Brush tool, simply press [ to make the brush smaller, or ] to make it larger. :)

So to dothe lights and darks you're using the paintbrush correct? What opacity is it at?

This is amazing to me, to get something to look even remotely like a person on my computer I have to spend weeks doing it.

:iconbikerscout:
BikerScout Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, at this early stage it's mostly the Brush tool at about 10-20% opacity. In the other clips, I left the toolbox in view so you can see which tools I'm using. :)

That's so cool to watch. Being a traditional artist myself, I found it interesting to see how your mouse movements are so similar to my hand movements with a pencil. I was surprised at the similarity. I've been saying for a while that digital art is really under-rated as a medium. A lot of people don't think it's "real" art or that it doesn't really require any skill. I used to think that before coming to dA, but after I learned more about it, I realized that I was dead wrong. Now, I set people straight when I hear it. I wish I could show them these videos of yours...that would shut 'em up :giggle: Bravo :clap: Thanks for letting us into your world for a little bit. :hug:

Well the cursor movement is due to me using a graphics tablet - you'll see those practice swings before I actually put paint to canvas. :giggle:

And don't forget to check the clips out on YouTube too - they have some music to go with them. :aww:

Thanks! Glad you like it. :thanks:

Q. "Do you work only with a tablet?"
A. Yes.

Q. "How do you make the pencil in Photoshop smaller?"
A. Use the square brackets. Pressing [ makes the brush smaller; pressing ] makes it larger.

Q. "How do you choose colours so fast."
A. Double click on the forgeround colour at the bottom of the toolbox to bring up the colour selection window.

Hope that helps. :aww:

How are you able to record your progress? Is there a special program you use? Cuz I've had some hits before when I draw, but when I try to emulate it, I can't remember. :( So it would help if I recorded them, I think.
