Quick paint practice

Trying to practice and paint quickly, but end up not really "quick". It took me 2 hours to get to something this loose.

I always have struggle trying to transition my traditional painting skills into digital painting. For some reason, I just can't get the same feeling. Of course, the tools are different. I think the color mixing part is the key because I tend to be more spontaneous with traditionl tools and was able to react and build upon the color change, but when I paint with the computer, I kinda lost that spontaneity and sense. I find that if I paint in a very "organised" or programmed fashion, my painting usually ended up being very stiff.

I'm hoping to force myself to paint in shorter time, and be more loose with it. Doing production designs at work could really stiffen up my way of painting or drawing, because I got so used to doing detailed stuff.

Just hope that I could keep it up :D
