There’s also ‘Spit Painting’ that’s typically just 15 minutes! Sometimes it's fun to just jump straight into a drawing or painting and not have to go through an extensive design process or get overly attached to an idea.
Not all art has to be our best or portfolio worthy, or even shareable! Sometimes creating art for the sake of creating art can not only be more fun but often lead to better results. Creating art with a limited time frame will also help to condition your painting and design process by forcing you to get the best results possible by making shortcut choices. This method of practice actually helps to improve your art skills and makes you more valuable to studios in the concept art industry as you become more cost effective by producing work faster, after all the concept art industry revolves around production which costs clients money.
So find the quickest, most effective way to convey your concept and studios will love you for it! These speedpaint art prompts simplify some of the other main idea generators by taking just some of the keyword criteria and condenses them into bite sized chunks for a more digestible idea.
There’s no set format here in terms of design, the goal is quite simple: think of the best idea that reflects the criteria and draw or paint it in the best possible way within a limited time frame (no longer than 30 minutes). So why are you still reading?? Start creating some speed paintings! Your time… starts… now.
