For my next speedpaint video, I'm approaching it from a different angle. Portraits take me a long time - many, many, many hours. Usually if I convince my computer to record my screen, I have to speed up the video by 20x or even more. At that point people can't even really see what I'm doing - so it loses any use that it might have had to anyone curious to understand my process.
So! What I'm doing for my next speedpaint, Xena the Warrior Princess, is splitting it into parts. I'm recording whenever I paint, but I'm not stitching the videos together, I'm just speeding them up 8x and releasing whatever snippit I managed to get done. Please, let me know which way you all prefer and I'll certainly take that to heart.
I <3 Lucy Lawless. I grew up pretending I was Xena, and I loved her in BSG. I'm actually a bit surprised it's taken me so long to get to her. Will I eventually do a Gabrielle? Yeah, probably, even if it's just for me. :)
Without further adieu, here is Part One of Xena, the Warrior Princess. I hope you enjoy!
