Few more images on his website. Also, paid tutorials are available too.

I love the two of the kids with swings.

Nonetheless, they are all very creative.

I had a very strange reaction to his web site, kinda wish I hadn't seen it. I clicked on one of the galleries and started looking through the images and was left feeling he is a 50 percenter. Some of the images, like the buffalo, are exquisite, but a lot of them are terrible. The lighting doesn't match, colors are off and hard cuts abound. Makes me wonder how s/he was able to pull off the good ones.

Oh well.

They are decent but they are full of mistakes and the concepts are copied from original DDs from DA there are others who are indeed good works.

I think to be a good photographer or a good designer is to train your eyes first to make the difference between good and bad works and after learn how to do it smile

I don't know if I'd go as high as 50%, maybe 20%.  Lots of light direction issues, color mismatched, perspective and scaling problems.
Some good ideas, but I think it's more about volume than quality.  I laughed about the side bar saying to send your ideas in to be made.  I wonder if you get paid if an idea is used.

this is SO awesome, even if it's a bit raw here and there. I suspect many omissions were intentionally neglected even. definitely great stuff for inspirations.

reminds me the totally different performance, but roughly similar ideas, by KaterinaPlotnikova
