Every year or so something BIG comes along in the photo-art world.

Something really, really good.

I recently came across this new Photoshop “Fine Art Grunge” course, and I am in love with it.


The course is really about taking photo-editing and digital scrapbooking ... and pushing it all further:  creating artistic compositions worth printing to canvas or a serious fine art print.

And the style in this course is so beautiful and unique ...

He calls it “grunge,” but really it’s more about elaborate photo composites using advanced layer techniques, textures, vector files, shape layers, custom brushes, dramatic lighting effects, typography.

When you see this stuff, it’s not surprising that half of the page about the course is just one testimonial after another (after another, after another).

And that’s just not something you come across very often.

If you’re anything like me, and you love working with Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) to create artistic compositions, I really think you are going to love this.


PS:  This course is really BIG too.  As in, over 60 videos!  And nearly 5 gigabytes of bonus content alone!  AND there’s an exciting Photoshop Group and Flickr Group just for the students in the course, with fun “Weekly Challenges” and all sorts of other fun stuff coming out every week.  You are going to have the time of your life!

PPS:  Also, not only is the course set up for both Photoshop and Elements, you get lifetime access to all of the content and bonuses, so you can go through it at your own pace and come back as often as you like, whether to review a technique or to pick up new content or just to get re-inspired.  The new content just keeps coming, week after week.  This is the kind of serious artistic Photoshop training a lot of us have been looking for.
