Speed painting tutorial Mech robot Gaiking Digital painting or Photoshop painting process. Here is how to draw and paint speedingpainting study video tutorial and step by step image process.
Well, speedpainting definition, as far as I understand, from the concept art standpoint is usually a study of subject (values and composition mostly) that is done in one sitting (approximately 20-60 mins or could be up to couple hours but not more). In this video demo, I use Photoshop CS5 and Wacom tablet Intuo as a painting tool.

Anyway, I felt inspired yesterday after watching Gaiking Trailer. Didn’t even think that 1970s giant robot will ever come to life on silver screen. I really hope it will be well done as a good movie so that we can see more of many giant robots in movies soon in the future. I don’t mind Transformer, but really they aren’t my favorite. I think the Giant Robot Mecha in the 70s are the most badass and they are the first of their kind. :)

Anyway, if you enjoy this tutorial, there are similar type of video tutorials I have on the site. I recommended the following video Drawing War Machine Ironman 2, Silk Spectre speedpainting tutorial, Digital Painting Tutorial Video Court Lady, Sucker punch digital painting tutorial and the old How to draw and paint Ironman. You will enjoy the similar process or I hope. :)


And if you really like Mecha stuff these video tutorials are made especially for those who wants to draw and paint Mecha robot Drawing Mech or Mecha Tutorial (this one show quick sketch and painting mecha, kinda cool. One of my better ones). And this video, Concept tutorial Drawing Giant Mech, also pretty similar to the first one in regard of painting process. Digital drawing tutorial Mech soldier is different approach almost peedpainting like video and somewhat gets different result than usual. Also you can find some more mech or robot tutorials by browsing thumbnails on top of the blog.

    Wow, this is amazing! You make it look so real, and it really pops :) sometimes when I draw armor type material, it looks flat and sort of weird. xD
