Oh my giddy gawd.
That is beyond impressive and stunning. *salutes that man* I'm sure I have been to that station too on my travels around Chicago and the midwest.
Makes my efforts look a bit umm, weak. (I do a fair bit of digital painting too, but with Painter IX—this was my latest 'effort': http://www.lilserenity.com/rhettbutler.jpg

To do that in Photoshop is awesome, as I wouldn't personally call it the best tool for the job.
I really need time to do more painting myself but between me writing books and sorting out the company I work for five days a week...I'm a bit strapped for time. But—easter weekend next weekend.
Anyway, what an awesome painting. Inspiring.
EDIT: Thought I recognised the chap's name, he wrote the foreword to the Painter IX WOW! Book, and has a number of pieces in the book, he is an amazing artist. I could not dream of being as good as he is; but then my style is different I suppose.
