    These paintings are beautiful. The colors are well mixed, the composition beautifully organized, and it seems to have multiple layers of meaning.

    This is why I like Tutorial9 so much, I get to learn about practical tips and effects, or in this case, resources that I could actually use; not just some obscure effect that’s rarely useful (sadly, there’s a lot of those on the net).

    Props to Tutorial9 and all it’s tutorial authors!
