Okay. I am not really sure if my skills as an art newbie could qualify me to write a critique. But anyway, here goes.

So I was really envious about the whole painted look trend that's been going on in DA's photomanip community. And I figured that I also have to jump into the bandwagon not because I want to be in but because I was head over heels in love with the whole painting effect. So with that brewing envy, I began to scour a lot of sites across Google and DA for tutorials about the painted look. Alas, all the tutorials I've found were lacking and didn't give me the result I needed.

So I continued to search and finally, my relentless scouring led me to this tutorial. I was instantly inlove with the image above and I was swooning like mad. I admit that it took me weeks to finally buy this but that's because I was also searching for a local supplier who is selling a graphics tablet. So when I found one, I immediately bought this tut.

So what can I say? Let's break them down, shall we?

a. Vision- What I admire about this tutorial is the artist's goal to create a material that would not only be friendly to advance users but to the beginners as well. Most of the tutorials I've come across during my search were assuming that all their readers are well versed in photoshop and photomanip, and thus, proceeded to create materials without keeping in mind that majority of the readers do not have an idea how things go with PS and photomanips. I mean, people searched for tutorials because they don't have the knowledge to do this and that. And creating materials that are not thoroughly explained and would led to more confusion greatly defeats the purpose of teaching and learning.

My Lost Memories is simply superb because the artist created it with the beginners in mind. It doesn't assume and thoroughly covered the important stuff so even kid could understand.

b. Originality- I am giving this tut a perfect 5 because I haven't seen any painted look tutorial as exhaustive as this one. And most of the so-called painted look tutorials I've found across the net didn't yield such wonderful results like this one.

c. Tecnhique- Shiny's a very good teacher. I've learned a lot from the tutorial. And the steps were neatly organized from the most basic to advance making the overall thing very easy to understand. You might wonder as to why the tutorial is very long but that's because she really explained n the whole process of this and that. There's no rush and the pacing was normal enough to give you time to adjust and process what's going on in a particular step.

d. Impact- MINDBLOWING??? I am serious. My Lost Memories is like a no holds barred tutorial. Shiny shared a lot of her secrets in this tut. And I was really happy with the results of my own work after learning from this tutorial. I actually didn't sleep at all because I immediately wanted to put the tut into action.

e. Comprehensiveness of the Material- Excellent! The video is rendered in ultra HD with very clear text tips. You've got to be blind if you can't read it. And the instructions were direct to the point. This is one the best tuts I've encountered so far. I didn't have a headache trying to decipher what the instructor is trying to teach.

And so...

This tutorial is all worth it. IMO, My Lost Memories is not just for tablet users but for those who have none as well. I created my first ever painted look without a tablet and so far the result is decent. If you want to see what I created using this tut, visit these links: and What are you waiting for? Buy the tut now. You will not regret it. xD
