Speed painting videos are a popular genre on YouTube, where artists show their creative process in a time-lapse format that condenses many hours of work into a short, convenient screencast. While speed painting videos are fascinating to watch, they are difficult to follow along for anyone looking to learn digital painting techniques. An alternative video style I’ve found myself being engrossed in are real-time digital painting videos, where the artist livestreams their work with informative commentary. Unlike their speed painting counterparts, this long-form content allows you to see every brush stroke and listen to the artist explain their process as you see the work slowly come to life. If you’re interested in developing your digital painting skills, immerse yourself in over 10 hours of educational footage from these talented artists.
