i did a little something but you know i'm really new in this exciting world of digital painting (2 months). If you could help me by giving me any usefull advice, it would be a pleasure. :)

The only advice i can give you is read and watch a lot of tutorials. I still watch a lot of tutorials my self, trying to learn new things. I would also get a Graphics Tablet  if you haven't already there a big help and do lots of practicing. If you ever need a helping hand, if i can i will do my best to help you out. :)

oh thanks man, those few words really give me the envy to go on !
I got a wacom intuos pro which is a really cool graphic tablet and i'm making lots of minimal style CD covers
for friends but I'm not very good at drawing elaborate scenes.
I would just like to ask you  if you could, in a few words, tell me how you build up a scene and how you frawed Limbo's character that well :)

Thanks for all man ! :)
Hi, i love your stuff. I was wondering if there was a download link for the grass brushes that you use. It would be most appreciated.

Thank you so much. The grass brushes are the ones that come with photoshop its self. :)

I really hope to see more. I enjoy making them my self, I've actually been think of doing another one soon. :)

Yeah...they're so easy to make.  I mean, makes me wonder what program Playdead used to make this game.
