Speedies!

Hello!

Not much to report here. Ive just been working on speed painting. I find it to be a good way to think about the bare essentials of an image, and the foundations, such as colour, composition, tone etc etc etc.

Anyhoo here's what I did today. A couple are meant for the current cgsociety challenge, the others just for fun.

I don't have anything vaguely interesting to say... I gotta work on my patter.

Ken :D

nice! I always say to myself, 'ah he used a computer program, he cheated' but then I saw your live drawings and those are very good. So forget that!
