During the holidays around Christmas I decided to try 30 minutes speed paintings each day using an application called Leonardo. Inspired by something called spitpainting I took the theme from the top post on: http://spitpainting.tumblr.com/
Leonardo is a new painting application specifically designed for concept and digital painting. It is under development and I have the privilege to evaluate and test it first. It takes the next step for painting programs designed from a user point of view. As the program do not try to support everything the UI is optimized for painting, making it easy to use and understand. It supports an infinite canvas and is super fast. I say that again, it is super fast, you will not feel any lag whatsoever. I have a hard time going back to other programs now because I do not feel the same flow as I get in Leonardo.
