Here's the promised speedpainting tutorial!
I'm sorry it's so big, but I honestly suck at Flash and this is the best I could do. I hope that you'll find it helpful!

I wuv it, I seriously do. It's absolutely amazing and fantastic and oh my goodness, thank you very, very much, you're amazing and I'm going to blabber like this for just a few more words, 'cause I'm so stricken I can't find my mind...

Alright, I'm good now. I have only one question, because it's very clear in general, but--is it just me or have you not once used Ctrl+Z there? I saw you erase the reflection, but apart from that you didn't seem to make any move that you'd consider a mistake. It that were so, would you say everybody should speedpaint like that? Don't erase, try to incorporate your mistakes or paint them over at most?

Also, please, what hardness are your brushes set to, and opacity? Do you vary in those much?

This is hands down the BEST tutorial i have ever seen.
Ive been searching for a while for something like this to cover the basics/process of digital painting and environment "speedpaints".

I LOVE your approach of taking things from "Tto prahe top down" and working from a distance to practically trick yourself into not fixating on tiny details. 
Awesome stuff! :D Thank you and im even more eager to continue painting away on my backgrounds c:
