Hiya Pete, I love your work and what interested me especially is that you use Corel Painter for it. I am pretty much fluent in Photoshop for years but it looks like Corel is more useful for the digital painting path and I would love to learn how to paint in your style. I pickup on the software pretty quick as it's very similar to Photoshop (just gotta work the hotkeys and kinks), but by any chance do you do private remote-screen lessons over skype calls or something? I'm the kind of person who likes critique in a live view, as in I'd love an expert there and then when I'm painting as I'm a newbie to the art and I really need to do whatever I can to pick it up for my art class this year. I would happily pay you but not too much, just an hour or two would be fantastic if you could help at all? Message me back on deviantart if you are able.

Hey Dude! I found your tutorials on YouTube. Wow thanks so much for sharing those. I've been trying to learn a new style and your videos have help so much.  Keep it up!

Found you via an Imagine FX mag tutorial(on the perspective tool), and def' planning to follow you for some insight in the illustration world...especially when some people try to tell me how art isn't a job(which I know is not is just a tough industry at times. I wonder if you grew up with that too? or did your family and friends support you the whole way?)

I was very lucky to have had the support of my family. It is a very difficult industry to be in, that is true.

Hello Peter, just wanted to say I'm a new fan of yours :D I'm trying to learn drawing/painting on tablets (digital art) and I came across your videos...absolutely loved the style and technique you were using. I will most definately use a few tips you gave in your videos, they were very helpfull. One question thoe, do you think Corel Painter is the best program for digital art or do you have other favourite programs?

Keep up the good work,

                                  your new watcher and subscriber PyroTAr :)

Thanks, PyroTAr. I think Painter is the best program for me, personally, but everyone else has to find which program works best for them. Took me a long time to figure it out, though. It was between that and Photoshop.

Hey Peter, I noticed a little while ago you visited my page...

First, thanks; I'm honored. I was just curious how you ended up there?

It's just weird to me, I mostly get visits from well known artists despite my not being at all good.( after all they never SAY anything)
My own followers and watchers don't even visit.

I guess I just wanted to know about you seeing as you make some great comments on my images.
