I will forever envy people that can do a quality painting using traditional methods...yeah digital is great and all, but traditional painting is at least 5-10 times harder IMHO. ;-) Well done.

Thank you! I do digital art tutorials and DVDs with PhotoshopCafe. One of the big things I try to teach is that your digital art will be better if you can incorporate traditional techniques in your work. Understanding how a bristle paint brush works will help you control its digital version better.
