I am looking for Photoshop video training. I tend to learn better from videos.

Looking for something that covers people to cars or even matte paintings.

I am looking for videos that show a piece from start to finish I find this better than random examples.

I am leaning toward http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com (http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/)

But which ones should I get ?
but I am open to any other videos that may be available

Thanks

i just bought 4 videos from gnomon..... i am new to this whole matte painting thing too. I bought ryan church vol 1 hi tech architecture, dusso 1, and both of the christian lorenze dvds. I thought for a person like me... just starting out that the dusso one was very hard to watch.... everything is sped up like 110%... but he does cover a lot of amazing stuff. I thought the first christian lorenze dvd was awesome.... It deals a lot with painting on top of photographs... i haven't watched the vol 2 of his yet.... but i get the feeling that it may be sped up like the vol 1 of dusso. But I am extremly impressed and happy with the ryan church dvd... though it deals with painter... while the others deal with photoshop. I think i will be getting the other ryan church dvds... Hope this helped

So overall would you buy the christian lorenze”s again?

I was very interested I those. But I have to say I am now looking at the

ryan church dvds also.



Thanks again.

actually my friend here at school just ordered the new video... so hopefully you can look for my review sometime within the next week and a half. and yes I am very happy with the ryan church videos and the christian lorenze stuff. Christian lorenze deals a lot more with photography while ryan church just paints.... but ryan church does not use photoshop... he uses painter. Also i found the architecture volumes more helpful for me than vol 1 and 2... i do more backgrounds than I do cars ,...ect. good luck in finding what helps you more...
