Hi everyone :) I issue a speedpaint challenge! Paint or draw the attached (totally adorable) Red Panda in your own style: * Within 2 hours * By Sunday 13 June Post your result here including your medium, and how many minutes it took you in total (up to 120 mins). Bonus points for also including one interesting fact about Red Pandas if you want to. Have fun! :) Harmony Photo credit - https://pixabay.com/photos/red-panda-animal-baby-branch-cute-1852860/
Too late for the deadline but I'd saved this guy on my phone for next time I had the palette ready to go - Oil on 'PaintOn' paper with a base of Black 3.0. Recorded the process too so sorting out the footage now had so much fun :)
OMG!!!! i love pandas so much how could i miss this!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! 😱
Here’s my little panda :) this took me the full two hours because I really struggled with the weird perspective. Fun fact - The Firefox logo is of a red panda! I never knew that.
Since it was supposed to be speed paint (and also that today my eyes hurt so much and I had to put on my glasses!!!): 30 minutes digital paint. I lost so much time with the face, I couldn't catch the expression. :/ I had no idea what the red panda's paws actually looked like so I went looking for them to see how they clung (also because I wanted to define them just barely in all that black mass). I thought they'd have a little more lugged toes, since they're an arboreal species, but instead they have really cute, chubby little paws that look a lot like a cat's but are wider, with nice oval fingertips and very sharp little nails. if you google image "red panda paws" you will find a detailed illustration among the first results. They are the cutest thing!
Here we go. This was around 20 minutes, trying to 'speed-paint' in my favourite style, charcoal. Done digitally in Infinite Painter. Thanks for the prompt :) Interesting fact: reproduction of Red Pandas is more similar in process to Raccoons and Skunks than other Pandas.
Took me around 50 Minutes :) Fact to red pandas: they start their evening routine with cleaning their fur by "washing" it with their licked paws :)
yeah! \(^.^)/ my pen is already warming up for the challenge! :D beautiful idea :)
Oh my! I'm in! I totally adore red pandas!!! <3 For the panda gact, I just suggest to follow the San Diego Zoo profiles on Instagram or Facebook : they publish very often videos of their red pandas (and not only pandas!), including mama MeiMei with her cub Pabu (who always plays, he's so cute! <3).
