Ultimate Dinosaur Fight

Probably about an hour. The legs took ages to get to even this stage...

Dinosaur Fight

I suck at drawing dinosaurs, a bit over the time limit, 50mins on this.

Dinosaur Fight

As an aside, I was trying (and failing) to sort out my colour balance when I came across this fun variation, the Velociraptor of evil and destruction!


"The only thing capable of taking on a Metal Gear, is of course, another Metal Gear..."

This is awful....I don't like dinosaurs, and my enthusiasm died within 10 minutes, I just couldnt be bothered to do anything more.

Dan H - Mistwalker

Dan H - My Back Garden

I was getting annoyed trying to do a digital painting for this weeks self study so I decided to just knock something out straight from my imagination! It was really fun :)

Bit too tired but I wanted to give it a go before going to bed. The scribbling could be a lot better!

Not my greatest work of all time - I should have had the foresight not to work on black... seeing as the legs in particular are very dark.


30mins, I'm feeling really lazy so I just copied a photo :/

DanH - Beetle

And I'm back! Forgot how fun these speedpaints are! :)

Mini Projects

Just to let people know that I'd been considering setting up a kind of weekly mini project thing to do, it would go up on Friday (on a blog of its own, if there are enough people to do it) ad it would essentially be roughly similar to the mini projects we've had from Heather or Chris. I was intending to keep it to 'real world' things rather than 'fantasy' or similar.

The result could be either 2D or 3D (or both) but would basically be in a relativly simple format.
I would essentially post a picture of an environment and ask people to design a particular somethign that goes in the environment. I could for example post a street scene and ask for a character, or just design something that looks like a real world animal or veichle or similar for a given enironment.

The idea is basically so it lets us develop more subtle imaginative abilities to design things that could actually exist rather than going for the fantastical all the time, it's more an imagination excercise that either the speed paint or speed modelling, which are more about artistic abilities.

Anyway, thoughts, comments or just generally seeing if people are interested or not would be welcome, just reply to this post.

Another of my trademark only half acknowledged scrawls, I just liked scribbling so took far longer with the overall image than I should.

45 or so mins


A bit cliched, and I couldnt concentrate properly so wasn't exactly speedy, but anyway:


Yea so i got frustrated with the painting i was working on and ended up drawing this trying to remember form as best as i can from memory.
