Hey guys, I finally managed to upload my first Gumroad tutorial!

It's a 2h11min video explaining a bunch of techniques I use for Sci-Fi speed- or matte painting, such as in these images (the last one is from the video). 

Hope you find some stuff useful!

You can now also get my Custom Brush panel for Photoshop!

I love your work!!! I just stumbled upon you here... This type of painting is the reason I bought an Intuos 5 Medium Touch Wacom tablet, but have yet to fully start using it. I draw really well, but have always only drawn using pencil on paper. This is what I aim to do! You do beautiful work. There's a saying "find a job you love, you will never work a day in your life". This and/or 2D and 3D design/render/animation is my perfect job... Waaaah!

Bonjour Jonasdero. Je me permet de vous écrire en Français. Déjà je voulais vraiment vous faire savoir que j'aime beaucoup votre travail, je vous suis depuis plusieurs années et c'est toujours un régal visuel pour moi de regarder vos créations ( ma favorite étant " Chromatism " ). Votre vidéo tutoriel m'intéresse pour mon propre travail, j'aimerai pouvoir l'acheter mais y'a t'il une autre solution qu'avec un compte paypal s'il vous plait ? merci beaucoup, bonne continuation.
