    Walid I like your banana! The blocking and blending is well done. I can see that more detail is needed if you want it to be even more realistic.

    Yeah, I agree with the previous comment. The only thing that seems to be missing are certain colors that make up other lights on the bananers. The shadow portion of the banana could be smoothed and less like a contour like the picture. You handle the medium well, it's just putting in what you see I think.

    The photo you used looks like Steven Colbert. Don't be sorry :-/

    It is a very good blendy stage and I like the roughiness of how it is now. But if you want to really bring it into focus, you can go in with a smaller brush and start to render it even further. I connect with it the way it is now though. It looks Painter-esk.

    Blah! lol I am actually giving my art muscle a break. I've done little things here and there, but when I first approached the apple, I really wanted to think about what I wrote in my sketchbook first. Then after that I had to do a full charcoal of streaming water, trees, forest and so on... that took over 12 hours and it's still not at my standard, blah. ...Oh, then there is my digital art class.

    Needless to say, it's the end of the semester and I'm all arted out. I need a break lol

    walid: what a beautiful banana! My only critique is what I think has already been said; soften the edges of your shadows. In fact, soften them entirely. Another thing, the end stem of your banana seems a little flat. Try to bring it to life the same way you did with the rest of the banana by creating three deimensional planes. Great work!

    aea: awww! oh well....but if you do get the urge to post some art and you're not all arted out post here!

    So I was looking at this thread because I've been getting frustrated with my digital artwork of late. It just wasn't working they way I wanted so I thought I'd go back to the basics, for a refresher. Being that I didn't have any fruit I grabbed a nearby stapler and had at it. The only difficult thing was I'm at an office with no tablet to hand (grr) still I liked how it came out so I thought I'd post it.

    Arrow My 2cents

    This is my first post around here, so hopefully I'm not embarrassing myself too much. I really am trying to work on learning how to paint digitally, so this is only my fourth or so attempt. I think it looks ok, but I kinda faked it as far as colors. I feel as though the red didn't quite turn out right..? Any comments or crits are welcome!

    Hey crayonmoster, nice to see you posting in here!
    crit: You don't have to use straight white all over the pepper. I'm sure there weren't that many extreme highlights hitting the pepper. Also, using straight up black for your shadow is extreme. Perhaps a very dark red would have been good? What was the color of the surface the pepper was on?

    Thanks for the crit, the table was a a dark brown so I should have done the shadow more of a reddy brown?

    Too saturated Lake? So less BRIGHT red, more subtle? Darker tones?

    Hi all, my first post here.
    After browsing through this thread I thought I'd give it a try



    First try at the apple. No ref used, no lighting and whatnot. Just trying out the tips Bumskee gave at the very beginning.

    Greetings wintersreich

    Jeszica - spend more time on the blocking in stage - while it's good to generalize large areas of color, sometimes it prevents you from seeing the shadows that really describe the form.

    @ Lake, thanks for the critique. I know I need to spend more time and focus more on the whole piece. I'm quite easily bored, so after spending like 20 minutes at a piece I want to do another one. Imagine how many unfinished pieces I have haha!

    hey how long does it usually take people to do each painting in photoshop?

    This took me like 10hrs working on a 4x6" wacom, (using references that were found before painting regarding machine parts)



    BTW, YOU ALL ROCK!

    i like that everyone is still posting! I should get off my butt and do another still life... I think I will.
    Jjohanson, did you do this from life or a photograph? If you used a reference photo may I see it? I think you need to work on your drawing of the apple first. Also, the black shadow is very harsh. By the way jjohanson I LOVE YOUR SIGNATURE!
    Eryn, that took you ten hours? Well I'm pretty slow, Sometimes it's taken me three hours just to do a fruit. I would like to see you take a crack at a still life.
    crayonmaster: yeah hitting the fruit with a little brown reflective light and getting rid of the white background would be good too. I kept the white background with some of mine and after I got a couple of good critiques I realized it was too intense.
    snackboy:good first post! post another!
    wintersreich: I think you are using a really low opacity. Try another apple with higher opacity.

    Eryn - I believe the reason it's taking you so long is because you're working in on the details VERY early. If you're painting/drawing in photoshop, it's much, much easier to use guidelines to describe the general shapes, then work from the most general areas towards the most specific, not the other way around. Post some fruit.

    alot of you here should look up colour temperature.

    see here for an example: http://conceptart.org/forums/showpos...2&postcount=66


    I'll post a more detailed explanation of the 'colour temperature' part soon
