Nice, now we can post videos, too!
how does that work?
Thought you might be interested in that milestone.
Try to google both "speed drawing" and "timelapse" and see what results you get.^^
A timelapse can be everything, clouds in the sky, or a cake in the oven.
Please visit our "Speed-Drawing" () group if you like "timelapse drawing videos".
To get a more visual impression, try to google "speed drawing" and "timelapse" again with the search filter for images and pictures. The timelapse search shows hundreds of different preview images and not one single drawing or painting. And vice versa. Even if it's not 100% correct it seems to be common sense now. My guess is that the term "speed drawing" is just a nickname for "drawing/painting timelapse video" and the "speed" in the nickname implies that you can watch it at accelerated speed. "Mouse" or "Net" meant something else 30 years ago, too.
I maintain that calling art timelapses "speed paintings/drawings" confuses the actual art of speedpainting. I think it is not only worthwhile but beneficial to maintain a distinction between them for the sake of not confusing the uninitiated, as well as allowing the practice of speedpainting its own term, so as to define and solidify its place alongside longer paintings. Somewhere along the way, someone saw a speedpainting timelapse and decided to make their own, not realizing what a speedpainting was. Again, I assert that simply googling the terms and calling it proof is wrong. Simply because a misconception is widespread does not mean it should be adopted. Some people do use the terms interchangeably, but I think there are reasonable grounds to call that an ignorant error. Again, the professionals do not call their timelapses "speed paintings" unless they were indeed done in a small amount of time. This is an error that seems to be prevalent among amateurs, calling timelapses "speedpaintings". Many professionals upload videos of their speedpaintings in real time! Half-hour videos of speedpaintings. (Titus Lunter and Mathias Verhasselt instantly come to mind as examples of this.) It is unreasonable and murky to allow one term's definition to encompass actual fast paintings as well as timelapses, whether of faster paintings or longer ones. It is therefor logical to call these videos "painting timelapses". The reason googling this does not turn up many results of the sort you may be looking for is that not many people record for hours and hours at a time while painting. Those videos get chaotic, and it is intensive to record, edit and process them. Try googling "drawing timelapse" and you'll see many of the same types of videos as this artist's. Also observe the more traditional terminology of the concept art community, where a speedpainting meant, like I have said a couple times, a fast painting. That classic definition is not outdated! There is actually a current upsurge in speedpainting, primarily due to the Daily Spitpaint group on Facebook, currently boasting 17 thousand members. Many of the recent (awesome) speedpaintings that have been hitting dA are from this group.
TL;DR, the primary and most popular definition of "speedpainting" is the act or product of painting very quickly. It is the original definition of the term, and the term is currently most widely used in the original way, enjoying a resurgence of popularity. It is a common mistake among beginners while trying to emulate professionals to call their much more laboured recordings "speedpaintings". Why hijack a term and assign it to something that already has a name -- "timelapse"?
The problem is that we talk about 2 different things. That's funny
to sum up: Your talk is about accurate and traditional terms, mine about how the nickname which is commonly used today may have developed.
I'm sorry but this talk is leading off topic and away from Ambr0's wonderful work.
