    Art: One thing I've been working on for myself lately...

    One thing I've been working on for myself lately is establishing the perspective, values, color palette, composition, and overall forms as quickly as possible. Like, within the first 10-20 minutes....

    Sorry, but there's no way to automatically detect what color the objects were from a black and white source. That information simply isn't there in the photo, and the only way to add it back in is...

    I like to keep my left hand on my tablet as much as possible, so I use AutoHotkey and custom shortcuts within Photoshop to put all my most common tasks there - brush tool, eraser tool, zoom tool,...

    When this happens to me, I usually just put my hand on my cheap USB mouse, paint a few strokes with it, and then switch back to the tablet. Usually clears up the confusion and the pressure...

    The layers thing is TOTALLY up to you, MickvanElk. :) There are amazing artists on both sides of the issue. Some think you literally can never have too many layers...others are almost compulsive...

    I like the way you handle the colors, as well as the brush strokes - very loose, but tight enough and accurate enough for the viewer to be able to tell exactly what (s)he's looking at.

    I would say for the purposes of this thread, ditch the B+W sketch as fast as possible. That's fine for figuring out overall composition, but the focus here is just on developing texture and form and...

    The atmospheric perspective thing was one of my first thoughts, too. The trick is not to apply haze to everything in the frame, but only to the things that are distant, like what Robotus did.

    I'm a little confused about what you mean. As long as the rulers are visible (ctrl-R), you should be able to drag guides from the top and left side of the image. View > Show > Guides only works if...

    The problem that's standing out to me the most is the lower resolution of the elements at the bottom right. Very blurry and distracting. You ought to consider finding new photos to work with or...

    I don't believe there's any way to do this. It's just set at 0%, and that's that. =/

    It's exactly what it sounds like - the ratio of the width to the height is 16 to 9. The exact dimensions you pick are up to you. For instance, I've been doing a lot of sketches and studies lately...

    Yeah, for stuff that'll be viewed at a reasonably close distance, 300 dpi is a good value to go with. 200 can work, too. Decide on a physical size you want, set the resolution where you want it,...
