Day 20 - Speedpainting #04 - Sunlit kitten

14th July 2012

I was beginning to get worried if I could keep up with this speed painting stuff. I missed two days of it thanks to my obnoxious laziness, but here's tonight's speed painting. 

I had a lot of fun doing this one. I really thought I could stick to the one hour deadline (30 mins seemed impossible), but I exceeded by 20 mins. :( Still need to know how to resist from adding details and keeping it basic. Figured out how bounce light works and how sunlight saturates color.

I think this is the best one so far coz it very closely resembles the original. Criticism is most welcome. :)

Speedpainting #04


  1. o_0 OMG! this is awesome ! !! awesomeness overload!! (crawls away) gotta paint!!

    (slap back to reality).hm...the shadow could've been a shade darker.and a tad bit of red in the sunlit portion would have made it more warm n cozy.But thats about it.Omagodissowesome.(faint)

  2. Oh shut up, I'm embarassed!

    Now that I look at this 18 hours later you're right! I never noticed that I could make the dark patches darker. :( And yeah, I kept doing the red highlight again but it was hard to get the right shade! It was so itchy to resist from using the dropper tool!

  3. no dropper.look.absorb.paint.stop when time is up.paint like a zen monk. :|
