What's this all about then?

Someone suggested in the irc channel that we have some sort of speed paint challenge happening.. So I'm thinking of having a short 2 hour speed paint activity once every month.. perhaps on a Sunday night when everyone should be at home. Topic would be announced via the irc channel, and then you paint as best/fast as you can then post it in this new section.. waddya think?

irc.uq.edu.au (QUESTNet), at the channel #sumea

20th April this month for the first speed paint.. I'll post news as the date draws nearer.. 8pm to 10pm.

Digital... I don't think paint dries fast enough to be scanned in two hours. [;)] I don't have a wacom either, but hey, it's just for fun!

That does sound interesting... I'm a programmer, but I'll probably have a go too. [:)]

Hopefully my art for the 2 hour challenge would be better than the picture in my profile too.

Hi everyone, i was the one who suggested it on irc. and when i suggested it i thought of maybe painting a scene from ur favorite movie freehand copy/ or artists rendition. i think this would be really cool. :)

i dont think we need strong guidelines, just - 'you have 2 hours go and paint something'.
but if we are going to just limit it at 'theme/genre' ..e.g. fantasy or scifi..and a person can go and paint their fav scene out of aliens, or an alien environment or just an alien of their own creation in a sexy pose (just using that as an example:))

why not a self portrait?
I'd find that challenging. How to get my nauseatingly exotic beauty across on the digital medium. lol

The topis should probably only be revealed when the competition is commenced to makes sure that everyone starts at the same time.

As for an idea, maybe a battle scene? I think that could be cool.

Malus's picture

How about everyone whos competing thinks of an idea then Souri pulls it out of a hat (if one is around) and posts the challenge on the day?

souri's picture

Sounds good!.. so far we have Battle scene, scene from fav. movie, and Self portrait. Throw your suggestions in this thread..

It's interesting that everyone has their steed + warrior facing left... must be a right handed artist thing?

Malus's picture

But I'm left handed! Argh I'm a sell out!! Noooooo.....

Brain's picture

Muahahaha! Mine are facing right, though pointing left, so I win on a technicality!! *laughs* @;-)
