Some good words there Rusty, and very nice of you to spend that much time on this for him.

As you rightly say, there's nothing else for it than spending the time and learning some good basics, and as you say, be ready for it to take a while. That's probably why I've been procrastinating so much... (well, no, I'm just like that, lol)

Good work on the paintover dude, great anatomy :thumbsup:

Now THATS a paintover:)

2 big things to take from that,

1 how rusty creates an image without line work but creates shapes and form. (Starting off with line work is ok i believe (i.e a scanned in pencil sketch) and i've seen styles that do incorporate it (i.e. comic book styles) but 'painting' a scene requires a diff approach. Rabid and myself need to get away from trying to define an image by linework (and color in between the lines)and instead create shape and form and understand how different materials respond to light and the environment around them.

2 As Rusty mentioned - Not drawing from your head and instead understand and research/reference anatomy and lighting and how things actually look (How skin reacts to light, how a birds wing look etc)

So next speed painting Rabid - just want to see shape and form blocked out on figures and environment, and it all reacting to the lightsource/s the correct way (and I'll try do the same). Don't worry about it not looking finished

great stuff

Nicely thought out Matt. And remember, you're not limited to one entry per person in the speed painting forum, so you can really use it as a practising grounds even if you just do the same image again and again (if you have the time of course ;))

I'd say start over again. Basically fixing it would require a complete paintover and you would find your self taking shortcuts using the old image rather than building it correctly from scratch. Concentrate on the anatomy (reference!) and lighting (reference!)

learn from each image and use what you've learn't into your next image - lay a solid foundation as you build it up. As you said in another post, try out Wikz's method in his video.
