Largest Digital Painting Ever?
Knowing CA, this might have been posted, but I searched and didn't find a result so here goes. I came across someone who supposedly did a HUGE digital painting. The site throws some rediculous numbers for a digital painting, so I want to know what you guys think, both the info about the painting, and how the end product turned out:

yea... Doesnt seem like the best usage of time. This is definitely not something I'd be proud of. (not that the piece is bad or anything, just that its probably the best example of ineffiency on the web)

I was thinking the same way as you guys...
But at least he can print it at enormous sizes, right?
I just think that after 11 months, it would be a more exciting and photo-realistic painting.

Would anyone be interested if I started a complete scale model of Tulsa, Oklahoma in toothpicks?

Snarfevs' 3rd Rule of digital painting: If your painting fits on 3 cds something has gone terribly wrong.
The guy's head obviously contains the distilled essences of 10 autistic savants and the source code for autocad. Truly dazzling!
Wonder how many of those layers are individual bolts? And to think I used to consider myself a layer ... I am however a bit disturbed by the procedural elements of his work - appears to be a lot of layer styles etc happening and whilst the pic as a whole at low zoom is pretty photoreal the impression is certainly broken at actual size.

if youre gonna spend all this time doing a peice like this, why a train station? might as well painted a bathroom. He should have done some kind of peice with imagination, some kind of fantasy peice or sci-fi. Maybe a painting of a alien planet or inside a ship. I guess this is still kinda cool though considering how much work he put into it. Id kill myself.
