Thanks Alevice!

Ok, I wonder if those who bandy about the oft repeated boast "Oh pffft, I could do that in 5 minutes" would care to dazzle us with their 15-40 minute creations. He he he, now is the time to put up or shut up ... 0.0 ...

If not, the rest of us mere mortals can endeavor to scribble out some Holiday Cheer... The more the merrier.

Obviously my Abominable Santa wont be appearing but perhaps Rudolph's Abominable snowman could show up...

However, Christmas is not the only holiday... hopefully we can see a diverse cultural sampling of holiday symbolism. I think this would fit in well with the speed painting concept. Symbols tend to be simplistic in nature and easy to quickly reproduce, yet also offer a challenge to the more talented to delve deeper into their visual manifestations. Off the top of my head I can think of Xmas, Quanza, Easter, Valentine's Day, 4th of July, and New Years... I am sure there is enough broadness to accomodate everyone's favorite holiday.

Ooh Mexico has the Day of the Dead, we got Halloween, and england has... uhm... err... white toast day? He he, just kidding... stiff upper lip, right?

Be it colorful and bright or serious and morose show us your symbolism.

Not Bad, My attempt to make a christmas tree went awry and ended up being rudimentary pine needle branch snowflake in the recycle bin. I think maybe I'll try a different holiday.

Amerasu, I'm in Lurve with your Hippy Elf, it's brilliant
Having just bought a graphics tablet and been emotionally scarred by the first few results I stand in awe. How did you create this?
(I'm am even now searching the FAQ's for Tut's)
Excellent stuff.

[edit] Ok i've just visited your site Amerasu (Beautiful btw) and checked out the walkthroughs. Are you using Photoshop exclusively? Oops better check the whole site before I start asking stoopid Q's [/edit]

Thank you Taobaybee. Yep, it was Photoshop.. I use it pretty much exclusively. I've done a few things with Painter but not a great deal.

I usually use hard, textured brushes and I paint at a low opacity (generally 2% - 50%). I also make use of the layers. I start with a sketch in one layer, then block in the main colours on another, then paint at low opacity for shading and detail.

I wouldn't worry about your first few attempts, mine were horrific too (see them here). I think as long as you have some ability to draw, you'll eventually find your own technique and go with it

Where are the people who start off their critiques by saying they can do better in 5 minutes?

How about this for a plan?

We stop using this thread to get digs in at other inmates expense and get on with the speed painting?

I do have the power to let loose a terrible tentacle probing you know!! And people thought I was growing piranha in the east wing swimming pool............

But seriously, if someone is going to slam others work elsewhere with that "I can do that in 5 minutes" bullshit, why shouldnt they be challenged to at least show us something in the speed painting thread. The rules are very flexible as far as time goes, and I purposely chose a broad subject so that everybody could put something up.

But, of course if they were full of shit to begin with, I can see where they would be afraid to step up and would need tentacle protection... lol.

Hi Comic, I don't think Synax was saying he could do better, just that Armen's pic looked like a 5 minute job. I'm sure he didn't mean "5 mins" literally, probably more like there wasn't enough of a painting to comment on yet. That's the way I took it at least

That's good for 30 minutes... my little santa sleigh took longer than that. I probably spent an hour and a half on mine... not too speedy... not too polished... but it was an attempt. Anyone who wants a refund, please see the Emperor!

[EDIT]
What the hell is that smell?
[/EDIT]

[2ND EDIT]
Amer... That particular incident was only one of a few that I have seen in the last couple weeks. I truly wasnt trying to single anyone out.

Emp... I was just trying to get a rise out of people, maybe get some color on this page in the process, ya know? I've seen some pretty colorful threads in this forum. I figured a little ribbing wouldnt hurt anyone. Sorry...

This turned out worse than I hoped...but...

(I shoulda pushed the values further, and stuff...spent more time on the background...)

(...around 30 minutes of work...)



Here's one with a background that I made(added in PS...Paper texture) (looks better)

"The Capitalism of Christmas..."
