This video shows you how to create a speed painting of a cinematic scene of wolves hunting a bison. I spend about 30 minutes on this conceptual painting.
A lot of time I will do research for the environment I want to study and paint if I have no idea what I want to paint at that moment. I will explore different area of the world that has extreme condition like arctic or desert. Then I will try to imagine who is there and why or what happen. This will give me more information so that I can make up some exciting story or moment to amp my visual. Once I have some vague or rough idea, I can then start to explore with shape on my canvas. Then the rest will take care of itself, I will just add the detail to the story as I go on painting.
Sometimes though I will have a solid idea of what I want to paint. But sometime, I will just let the visual shapes and color guide me as I go.
Again I usually start my image from shapes and build those shape up along with composition in mind. The lighting and value.
Tips on speedpainting. Keep it simple first and make your image clear and easy to read or identify.
Things you should focus on primarily.
2) Lighting and mood
