I'm having some trouble downloading this; it starts fine, but stops at random places. So far around 80% was the highest it got
EDIT: tried it with both firefox and IE and it's the same.
This is great, very beautiful and inspiring.
On a side note, all the masturbation and ejaculation references are getting old, these artists and the skills they are sharing are incredible, but your making the community as a whole look immature with these kind of comments.
I had issues with my first time downloading, it came down corrupted, but second time around I choose "open with" instead of "save as" and it worked like a charm.
It is very inspirational
Just watched it! It's fantastic! I've never done any environs so I'm certainly inspired. Thanks MB!
A few questions: Removed because it was a retarded question...
Also are there any general exercise that you recommend newbies to do in order to get there work to a level like that?
Also for someone who has never done environs before do you have any general tips?

You're definitely speaking more confidently as you record these. Loved how you put those warmer colors in the rocks it really added some vibration if that makes any sense.
In the last environment you started with black and white thumbs, but in this you went straight into a colored environment. Was it because you've painted stuff like this a lot?
So every time I start using Whit's brushes for more than a minute Photoshop just up and crashes on me.
Is anyone else having this problem? I'm on my Macbook Pro, running Leopard, and don't usually have this issue with custom brushes (all of M@'s and my own work fine)
Also I think it's worth noting that I tested this out on a few different Macs with the same result, so it's not just my computer.

Dude, I'm sorry but, he's hardly mistreating you. Massive Black don't have to release the downloadable DVD's. The quality of these vids is to the extent I couldn't care less if they say stuff like that. We owe them for the oppurtunity these vids provide
Look man, as soon as you start changing who you are to please everyone else you've already lost the game before you started, and instructional videos are already bland enough without forcing them to be politically correct.
So I'm sorry you didn't like a couple jokes... but so what? We're not selling jokes.

At the risk of sounding like a fanboy, damn Whit, you really kick some F-ing ass. I don't know exactly what it is but there is definitely something about your painting's that is the hottness.
Ps. MassiveDVD My mother wants to know why you haven't called her lately.
Awesome, I've been hoping for an outdoor type one. Can someone tell me what the filesize is of the first part? My net connection at home still isn't active yet and I need to decide if it'll go unnoticed in work's bandwidth.
.PSD is in part two guys... my mistake. We'll also be including some supplemental footage (about 20 minutes) of unedited footage to show you the pace he works when we're not speeding things up.
If you're not planning on buying part 2 and you're feeling particularly ripped off that you didn't get the .psd then PM me and I'll find a way to get it to you.
i was having the same problems with the brushes. after a few minutes ps crashes, any suggestions?

Looking forward to the secnd part. Was expecting to get the PSD in the first DL, but wasnt expecting the brushes, so it's a fair trade-off I think.
About the immaturity and so on, whilst I can find it quite immature I think it's a bit pointless to argue about it. One thing I DO think is bad though, is the comment about K-bots mother.
That was bordering flaming, no matter how you put it, and shouldn't have been there... So how about this:
Sorry K-bots, for the unnessecary comment about your mother.
Sorry Massive Black, for whining about something that doesnt really affect my learningexperience.
Nobody had to apologize first, but the thing needed to be said was said.

hey, just wondering.... is there suppose to be audio/sound from around 1.50 to around 2.15 of part 1?
edit: noticed that there were various long parts of the video with no commentary. is this normal?

hey, I'm having a similar problem as jason was, if i wanna just re-download it, how do i start again without having to pay again?
EDIT: don't worry I think I got it working, awesome work guys, these are a great investment for any artist interested in conceptart.

I've just finished part 2 and I want to say that I feel along with Jason Chan, Whit is one of the most helpful, articulate teachers that MB has provided us with so far. I don't know if it's because he's still young and learning too (not that any artist ever stops learning), but he offers all sorts of great advice, especially regarding values, that I feel pro artists don't even think to mention because it's so basic. But the basics are the fundamentals and its fantastic to hear them. I would recommend this download to anyone who paints, even if they don't plan to paint a landscape in their life. Thanks to MB and Whit for another totally valuable and worthwhile download.
