I watch quite a lot of speedpaints because they usually inspire me to do things. Also, I like learning from just seeing one's process (as, in your case, would be the interesting use of textures and a few other, smaller things).
I agree on the point that has already been made, which is 480p is a bit too little- HD screencaptures are the most pleasant to watch, although I am aware that they may be harder to record and edit.
However, I feel like the speed is completely fine- it's like most speedpaints, to be honest. A speedpaint is not supposed to be a straight-forward tutorial. I'd probably get unpatient watching if it was slower and any kind of a commentary would simply bother me.

That is just my personal opinion and I know that you and other people may not agree. Just do whatever you feel comfortable with, your art is nice and original. Good luck with future videos :)

Iskreno - jako retko gledam speed-paint klipove u ovom stadijumu - ono sto redje gledam su tutorijali.
Ne znam sta kreativno ili konstruktivno da dodam ovome, speed-paint je speed-paint. To je ubrzani proces tvog rada.
Ono sto bih mogao da ti predlozim je da ga usporis i pretvoris u tutorijal, komentarises tehnike, korake, ideje - kontam da bi privuklo i vise ljudi i vece interesovanje. Sada naravno zavisi sve sta si hteo da postignes, ovo je samo moja opservacija, nadam se da ces nesto korisno izvuci iz toga :)

Well, let me ask you this: to what purpose do you produce these videos?
Because when I go watch a speed painting video, I watch to learn something (i.e. not for the "cool effect").

Critiques from my limited standpoint:
- only 480p? Just go ahead, ante up to 720p.
- too fast, almost epileptic moves. Slowing down to 2x or 4x the draw speed would be adequate. And if you end up with an hour of video, so what?
- the music may feel a bit too aggressive to some (again, it facilitates a very rushy feeling). Picking something slow and neutral may be a winner.
- how about a spoken commentary? To let the viewers know what you're actually doing.

Yeah, and before you get the wrong impression (which you might have gotten already), I did kind of like your video. Still, there is a room to improve.

Thanks for replying! Well it is a little too fast, and yes it should go HD, and next one will! :D Without commentary though...xD At least for now...
