A) The colors in this painting are wonderful, and the quality of execution is excellent. The whole thing feels like the colors have been transplanted from an ocean shore on a gray day.

B) I'd never heard of skill share before, so thank you :)

Oh my gosh yes! I am absolutely signing up. I've had CS5  for a couple years now, but I've only done basic photo editing. Any art I do is still traditional, but I've really wanted to start working in Photoshop. I've just had absolutely no idea where to begin. It's kind of an overwhelming program. Amazing, but overwhelming. I've also loved your work from the first day I found you on here, so to have a PS class by you might just be one of the greatest things ever!

Wow, this looks practically flawless. Amazing :) Painting is probably my weakest skill, I'm definitely checking out that site.

Wow, seriously amazing work. I thought it was a photo too! The leather stitching, the rust on the chains, and the texture on the rocks and wood is simply amazing!

look nice, so the way it works you put the video and the lessons, but you dont review the work. the reviewing part is done by the peers

I don't believe it's only done by peers, and even if the site would limit me to not being able to communicate with my students (which I believe it does) I would personally ask for any of the students to send me an email or something that I can get in touch with them, because as the teacher it would be my responsibility to make sure everyone is getting the feedback they need to make the class worthwhile :)

After reading the description, I began looking for points of detail which would betray this work as a painting. Literally the only point I could find was the log in the background. It seemed to lack the hard points and fine details of the rest of the works. However, with that said, when I first opened this image I immediately wondered why someone should have taken a photograph of these items together. I suspected it was a showcasing of leatherworking skills, with the other objects thrown in for detail. I had no idea it was painted at all.

The iron chain has rust on it. The bends show reflected light perfectly, and it seems the links have fallen in precisely the right way to show gravity's effects. They are absolutely convincing. The feather I cannot tell apart from the real thing; absolutely every detail is there. I feel like I could reach out and feel the smooth surface of the horn or the softness of the leather. It's stunning.

I have to say this is absolutely the best painting I have ever seen in my life, purely from a technical perspective. If I tried to find fault with it, I could not. I think I want it hanging in my living room, actually.

You give me too much credit, there are so many great paintings out there in the world!  But honestly, thanks so much for your words, they really mean a lot :)

You're definitely welcome. I loved it. You should consider selling prints of it, actually. It would go well with lots of things.

I could easily set that up!  Give me a couple days (since DA goes through an approval process) and it should be there :)
