As a preview of what to expect in the Durian DVD box – and most probably also an additional title in our “Open Movie Workshop” tutorial DVD series, our concept artist David Revoy made this incredible cool time-lapse video of a concept art painting. His workflow reveals great tips and tricks, a must see for everyone who’s in awe about watching people with artistic skills, and for every artist who is interested to learn from the masters!

This is a time-lapse of a full digital painting illustration with Mypaint / Alchemy and Gimp on Linux.
It was recorded in august 2009 as a technology demo for the 2D open source industry, done with Blender Video sequence editor as well as VLC/Mencoder and (gtk)Recordmydesktop.

Inspiring note for (new) MyPaint developers: the program is great, but would be truly competitive with layer blending:
