LotR speedpaints by evelmiina LotR speedpaints by evelmiina
Referenced from screenshots.

Speedpaint, fair enough, if Sam's head and Legolas's face wouldn't have been so frustratingly difficult to get right they at least doubled the time I spent on these :D

I'm sorry if they're kind of boring, I just personally like to test my skills like this, it feels like I always learn something new.

lovely speedpaints! they're so readable and refined that they actually looked like finished pieces to me. you captured the mood and the colors quite well in each (I especially love the one with frodo and sam) and love how the farther view has much abstract shapes. as for the faces I think you drew them spot on!

as for critique there's nothing really particular that bothers me, I think speedpaints are naturally "messy" and loose as long as it gets the idea across. but maybe you could add something atmospheric depth around the mountains in the bottom pic? something like this [link] other than that I'm fine. (sorry if I'm not much help! :( )

it's good you're trying out and testing you skills. I think you're doing great! <3

Typically i feel that copying screen shots can be too literal but it seems like you have a nice, fresh interpretation here! I enjoy the way you broke up the brush strokes.

Thanks! Glad to hear there's still something interesting going on, despite being heavily referenced.

Oh jeez, these are really awesome, like especially legolas like man oh man. And I like sams hair, its very shiny and bright.

I truly love all of them but that second one is so good. You seriously nailed that likeness of Frodo.

The way you solved those city shapes... genius! <3

Great, great quality overall, too.

aaa thank you! My perspectives are so awkward, better just go for abstract :D although, square selection and polygonal lasso are awesome tools, so that too.

mä aina oon ihmetelly sitä miten speedpaint eroo normaalista kuvasta johon on käytetty aikaa. Ku jotkut speedpaintit näyttää siltä että niihin ois käytettynä verrattaen paljon aikaa ja vaivaa
evelmiina Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Professional Filmographer
aa ja tarkoitan siis et alle tunti per kuva haha...en nyt sentään kaikkia noita tunnissa.

Sinänsä et kun en tavoittele valmista, realistista lookkia mihin menisi tuntikaupalla aikaa, vaan tärkeämpää kuin ilmaisu on sadaa kuvan värimaailma tallennettua. Väreistä voi aina oppia..itse ainakin. Mulle se jos yhteen kuvaan menee yli 8 tuntia, on paljon aikaa (vaikkei se oikeastaan ole, riippuu kuvasta), 4-6 tuntia ehkä sellainen normaali kun näen vaivaa, mut näihin meni alle tunti. Miinus Orlandon naama, tuntuu et rukkasin tota nenää vähän turhan pitkään :F
