Hellboy speedpaint by BikerScout Hellboy speedpaint by BikerScout
A 1-hour speedpaint of Hellboy as brought to life on screen by Ron Perlman

This was a real experiment since I recorded the whole painting process and uploaded it in bitesize chunks (links below) as a kind of visual tutorial.

Hopefully you'll enjoy the videos and pick something up from them. :aww:

If you watched the 'making of' videos which I recorded while painting this, you'll see that the eyes literally took a few seconds! :D

i watched hellboy 1 today :)
this speed painting is awesome!
i don't know about how long speed paintings usually take, but for only 1 hour, this is perfect

I guess the definition of speed painting differs from artist to artist. For me, as someone who will happily spend 12 hours working on one piece, to complete something in 1 hour is pretty quick. :)

Glad you like it. :thanks:

oh well, but if you show this to any artist and tell them that it was done in 1 hour, i'm pretty sure they would all call it a speedpainting :D

I am too actually! :lol: The key to being able to do that was not spending too long working the details and letting it build up naturally. A lot of what you think is detail is just suggested. The more you look at it, the clearer it is to see that.

Watch the videos and you'll see what I mean. Thanks for commenting. :)

Right-click on the video at the bottom of the screen and you should get an option to alter the clip speed. :)
