    Why is it called a Speed Painting Challenge if you have a month and a half to paint the "unknown Creature" ?

    You have to open a thread when you start your entry and post 3 WIPs of your progress. I guess they use the time between you opening a thread and your last post to determine whether you qualify for the speed challenge.

    How very true!

    I also don't understand this fascination that some seem to have with 'speed painting'. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the final painting that counts, not how long it took to paint it?

    In an ideal world, the final painting is what really matters. But to an art director speed also becomes a key factor in employing an artist for a particular job. Someone who can do 10 very good concepts in 10 hours might be more valuable than someone who can do 1 outstanding concept in 10 hours.

    Hi! I'm patrice Leymarie from IT'S ART, and would like to explain the one month timeline :

    1) We've an actual challenge big running challenge running called when we left earth. It ends up Dec.31st. Lots of IT' S ART Memebers are busy with this challenge and so we woul like to let then breath after the challenge to start to post their entry for the speed challenge

    2) The goal is to use speed challenge technics ( that's why we ask for 3 WIPs steps). The lenght of the challenge is just a way to let people enter when they want before or after all the Xmas holidays season..

    OK, what are speed challenge techniques? Nothing on the post in the forum tells me the time you are giving an artist to complete the painting?

    Is it a day from start to finish, a week or a month?

    Bear with me, I'm new to this challenge idea.

    I've added this rule :

    -> All 3 WIPs and final picture must be posted within 24 hours

    Think this is something fair to be qualified as spee painting, isn't it?

    You assume that everyone does this for a living. Many do art for the pure pleasure of it. In fact there are probably more hobby painters that use ArtRage or even the much more expensive Painter than thre are hired illustrators. So for most of us, what I said is still true. And what you said above doesn't even enter into it.

    There are enough deadlines and pressure to conform to in the world without creating them artificially.

    Some people just like the feeling of being able to create beautiful art in half an hour. It's a matter of taste. I would personally disagree that it is the final art that counts. It's the journey that does, and some enjoy it more when it's fast
