.....still need to practice more and play around with custom brushes and textures to speed things up. These took about 30-60 mins each. Too long considering, really. :/
On a side note, I recently made a Twitter account as a means of networking/finding more information to aid my job hunt. I avoided it for aaaaaages, dismissing it as another fad but it's been surprisingly useful so far and I enjoy the daily updates of inspiring photography from the National Geographic folks (all of the enviro speedpaints so far are studies of their photos).
I also designed some new icons for my site, so I'll spam them here too:

Notice how they're the same shape as my logo? ;)
