The only advice i can give you is read and watch a lot of tutorials. I still watch a lot of tutorials my self, trying to learn new things. I would also get a Graphics Tablet  if you haven't already there a big help and do lots of practicing. If you ever need a helping hand, if i can i will do my best to help you out. :)

oh thanks man, those few words really give me the envy to go on !
I got a wacom intuos pro which is a really cool graphic tablet and i'm making lots of minimal style CD covers
for friends but I'm not very good at drawing elaborate scenes.
I would just like to ask you  if you could, in a few words, tell me how you build up a scene and how you frawed Limbo's character that well :)

Thanks for all man ! :)

Hi, i love your stuff. I was wondering if there was a download link for the grass brushes that you use. It would be most appreciated.
