    Well. . . if he is fast, it's possible that he could do one of these a day. But even if he doesn't take weekends off, that's still not the best ever income. That suggests that he is using some other means to pump out lots of these in a hurry. They might be prints with some pigment smeared on top. Or maybe he is outsourcing to a workshop in China. In other words, he is running a scam. Anyone feel like calling the Better Business Bureau?
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    they look like photoshop or some kind of third party plug-in filters to me.
    or maybe quick cloned painter images using impasto effect.

    either way, none of them are good, imo.

    OMG, these are horrible! That dalmation looks 3-D around the edges. Tristan has the formula nailed. Blah. Scammers like this need to be exposed.
