...another one of those tutorials that doesnt teach you anything beyond - if you're a REALLY talented artist and have a graphics tablet, you too can paint an exact copy of a photograph

The brush settings were somewhat interesting but beyond that - its basically just a series of pictures

I completely disagree. There is a lot to be learned by disecting the process. Sure you're being told how to create a specific picture but there are many concepts that can be applied to other projects. It's unfortunate when efforts are wholy discredited because they may not yield the exact results that are desired. It was both generous and time consuming to have put together this tutorial and the artist should be commended.

The guys even says it himself - beyond brush settings theres nothing to it but patience, hard graft and buckets of painting talent

Apart from the above, there are really no more tricks; just a lot of patience, close examining of the real photograph and painting, painting and once again painting.
After that its art 101. Sketch, colour, details.

And isn't Art 101 THE fundamental art class? How would that in any way imply worthlessness as a tutorial? if anything you just proved my point.

Anyone attempting a work of that magnitude should have at the very least the most basic concepts of how to create a painting - I learnt that at primary school. And if you didnt know about those fundamentals, this 'tutorial' wouldnt explain them in the depth required to fully inderstand them, nor would be be in a position to put them into practical use following the 'tutorial'.

I'm 101% with NancyJ on this one.

If the guy had painted this from scratch - ok, WOW;
If the guy had transformed the photo into something "Artful" - ok, WOW;

But to take a photo, spend some hours working hard and return to exactly the same photo - sorry, that's just Duh!

Obviously this artist does have talent, obviously this artist does have technique. There are so many good things that he could have done with this image. I just can't see why he put out on the Web a day trip to nowhere.
