Raggedy Bird speedpainting tutorial / breakdown by witchingbones Raggedy Bird speedpainting tutorial / breakdown by witchingbones
Huge picture, fullsize it.

I use this method everywhere now, for quick paintups, polished pieces, 3d model texturing, eeeeverything. It's super quick to work with, effective and adaptable.

Wow! I really love your style.

Have you ever had a problem with the overlay setting? When I set the black and white sketch to overlay it turns transparent. I'm probably doing something wrong... 

Anyways, thanks for sharing the tutorial! I've always wondered how to start paintings in greyscale :)

Nicely done, I tend to skip some steps and overlay my colors on top of the greyscale which is fast but doesn't give you the control that this technique does, cheers!

This is great stuff and help, thanks a lot for makking this :)

If you end up doing a future tutorial, could you maybe show how you draw the very first picture or post various WIP pictures until you reach that first 'undetailed' version?

That's much harder to break down in a tutorial and better described by more extensive works of art literature as it's more of a combination of understanding anatomy, form and value. Painting the greyscale itself took like 15 minutes.. I do it all the time almost every day so it's kind of an automatic thing now. Quick scribble to plan out the image, block-in, basic values and foundation.

I'm not super verbose about this stuff so I'm not the best person to go into raw art foundations.
