[ thx for the DD ! wow ♥ ]
I made a speedpainting last week-end, then I decided to make a small comic strip with it.
But now it is done, I have mixed feeling about this mini project.
On one side Speedpainting technics made it flexible ( big love to Krita transform/warp tool and deform brush engine ) , and I could work on ambiant, rendering and lighting as I wanted ( this part can really frustrate me when I start with line-art , or any black-and-white outline ). So, I had fun.
On the other side, I couldn't spend time on the background, and kept it rough ; I also think all this visual noise affect the readability and make the time even slower. I did hesitate to even add text and small sound Fx till the last moment. So, I don't think speedpainting rendering ( the way I do it ) is optimal for visual storytelling ; and also it's time consumming. It wasn't easy to draw characters , making details out of the cloudy brush strokes. Next one, I'll probably try another strategy to find a satisfying rendering, and keep flexible fun.
