It has a definate learning curve and much of what people turn out does look just like regular CG, but someone using it to it's fullest potential can turn out wonderful stuff.  Still though, real life is always capable of better work.  Painter saves the mess and the cost, but it will never be paint.

The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

I also find that lots of stuff in painter just is shite that you do not need at all. The watercolour tool just looks ugly as hell and is complicated to use with the watercolour layers. Digital watercolour on the other hand looks nicer and is not slow as fuck. Impasto as well, yeuch!
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Delicious, Junk.

In the first one, the rightmost building, it struck me weird with those windows integrated into a roof with shingles like that, i have trouble grasping how that would work, i guess they could be cut to fit, but i figured what kept them insulated was the fact that they overlap the way they do, and cutting them to make room for windows would sacrafice that... Perhaps they are just decoratice, perhaps i am thinking too hard.

In any case, allover great work. Make a graphic novel now please. =)

Nice stuff, would benefit from varied lineweight but it's still very attractive.  Tablet I assume?

really nice, junk!  i disagree about the lineweight thing for this particular style, i would rather see a little more attention paid to the density of the linework in areas that are supposed to be dark - push the overall values a little bit more.  beautiful!

Indeed, it is. I just figured it was always kinda weird that one of the main goals in the first game was to find a bottle of everclear.
