You're skills are suberb and outstanding.

I almost didn't believe that this could have been done by a PC Tablet. BRAVO!!!

SPEECHLESS,This piece shook me to the core of my existance, and what I thought was possible with photoshop.As I use PS, I know how hard it can be to create this level of realism.Most people here can't understand how good this is.THIS PEOPLE ,is the highest level of talent you will see in your lifetime.This has inspired me to do art again full time. Thank you for this, your beyond amazing.

I just saw the speedpainting of this image... this is more amazing than your dragon paintings!!! And I love dragons. When a dragon lover says so, then it must be so. I was convinced that this was a photo!!!

wow!! that was quite an engrossing watch! Beautiful and impressive work. You certainly have one trained eye for color! I was wondering when you first started adding color to the grayscale did you have the color on a separate layer with an overlay/hard light blend mode? I've been tinkering with painting from grayscale but haven't found any good tutorials on how to add color to grayscale value paintings! Im sorry if it was rude of me to ask and thank you again for sharing!

You weren't kidding when you said photo-realism... The only way you can tell its not a photo is by the brush strokes in the back ground. mad props

I watched this the youtube video more than five times...

Your speedpaintings videos are slower than others in youtube, so I can learn a lot seeing them. Please, keep in this way, don't put too fast videos...=)

Thanks a lot!!!!

Definitely the best digital work I've seen yet. I have no idea how you are acheiving this result in just a few hours. What brushes are you using and what settings?

On the flip side, the *only* down side to this peice is that when looked at from a stranger's point of view who doesn't know any better, they won't look twice at it because they're assuming it's a photo. And then there's all the skeptics who won't believe you if they don't see your youtube channel...

maybe in a few upcoming peices, you can sort of limit the level of photorealism you're striving for, and add a few more ';painterly' details to it, to show that it is infact a painting.

I have never seen anything like this, though!

Great :D!! Only what troubles me with a drawing... is, that it has to be seen as a drawing :P.
Drawing something this photorealistic almost suggests you could rather take a picture in stead ;o.

Still, I've seen you via Youtube, and it was awesome :D!! Great job :)!!

Yeah, I hear that a lot from some... But it really fulfills the value of being a "novelty" in your portfolio. The first thing it does is amaze a client that you are able to observe the details of real life to the extent that you can recreate the illusion with your freehand... But also it never ceases to amaze people in a novelty sort of way. Personally, it is to me what practicing music scales are to a guitar player. The scales are great for practicing and knowing the notes, but contribute greatly to not only how well the musician handles the instrument, but also contributes to the artform when they do create songs from scratch. It is the same for me when I "practice" photo realism to help me observe the subtleties in realistic detail, but trains my mind for when I create stuff from scratch. Thanks to youtube, tho', I get a double use out of it!;-)

Thanks for your kind words!!

Yeah... I have been procrastinating that, though. It would entail me having to talk and record my voice... I have a real hard time getting past that! ;-) Thanks for your kind words!

Yeah, I supose you do have to talk in your video if you're going to make a tutorial. However, you could always record your voice after you have made the video. Maybe that would solve some problems :)
