Digital painting tutorial Kaiju concept art speedpainting. This tutorial shows you how to paint a Kaiju creature swimming under the water. This is one of my speedpainting process. It usually takes about thirty minutes to make a speedpainting, sometimes up to an hour. You can scroll down further to see step by step images with instruction.
One of the easiest way I found is that if you are not familiar with the subject, you will have to find some references. Having reference while you work can be very useful. And it does not mean that you have to copy from the reference. You can use your reference piece as inspiration, light source, design or many more reasons you can use them for.
This tutorial I use an image of an underwater humpback whale to get some idea of how to light the scene under the water. I also borrow the color scheme or palette from it. The idea is not to copy exactly from the reference, but use it as a starting point or use it to inspire.
