when you draw for awhile, you start to develop your own art process. So after awhile, doing speed stuff doesn’t come with too much thought. I only reserve the speedy stuff for upd8s tho.
here is my process in a few steps
- clean line
- lay down flat colors
- multiply and overlay
- normal layer on top to clean
Doing a lot of gesture drawing helps get the first two (and most important steps imo) down in a few minutes. The rest becomes busy work with filling color and doing simple lighting. It helps to know the shortcuts for whatever art program you are using to the point that switching bw them flows as naturally as your thought process.
If I wanted to put some serious time in it tho, I’d go full drive on the last step, which is polishing everything. So there ya go, hope that gives you an insight to speedy ol’ me. Getting excited about the thing youre working on helps a lot as well. :)
