    Hey guys, I'll be starting a sketchbook soon, but I had a go at some of the paintings

    I use a wacom graphire 4 (hoping to get an Intuos 6x8 or bigger for xmas ^_^)

    I forgot to save my steps (accidentally saved over x3) but I've got the blocking in and blending stages saved.

    I had to use Google for pictures because I had no fruit where I was >_>

    Apple:
    Now this was my first painting EVER, and I think it looked pretty nice for a first painting. I realized AFTER I finished that the bottom needed more shading and that the stem looks a little "flat".

    Time to complete: 2 hours.
    Digital Painting In PS #2

    Eggplant:
    Now this was completed the same day as the apple.
    I was experimenting with textures and reflected light a bit more.
    Time to complete: 1 hour.

    Hey, very nice start indeed. Apple - watch overall shape more carefully, try to compare, how they feel to you... Also, that yellow part inside apple looks weird. Eggplant - Shape, shape, shape! Work hard, you have potential.

    Jonish -
    Thanks!

    That "yellow" part I swear was brown the first time I looked at it

    WickedEdges -
    I get a 100% hard brush with only opacity jitter on set to pen pressure.
    I have my master brush opacity on 100% most of the time or 80% for finer blending, and I use a lot of alt clicks

    So this is my first serious digital painting in maybe 6 months or so.

    I tried to paint an onion, took me about an hour. Still looks horrible. What am I doing wrong you think? Also what is a good method to paint those lines in the onion?

    Some real talent in this thread.

    First off your onion looks very lovely. However I believe you are having trouble rendering the fine papery skin that surrounds an onion. They are not as glossy or soft as you have them depicted. They have a dullness to them, now I am not one to critique this well by any means you can tell by my onion that I still have quite a ways to go. This is what I am noticing with mine also. The lines I am noticing on the onion are added in by shading, since nothing ever has hard lines to it in real life. Unfortunately I don't have time to address this more...my little one just decided to throw a monster fit. parting note. Practice makes perfect and perfect practice makes a well founded artist.

    castrogf- Try and define a lightsource more.

    Your light's coming from front on, but the shadow's to the right more than the left.

    If you move the highlight to the left it will look much better.

    Just keep studying and never give up, it always helps.

    WickedEdges - Thank you, I use two brushes - the third brush from bumskee's set that you can find in the first post of this thread and second brush is the first brush from Barontieri's set that you can download from his site.

    Some onions

    My first ever still life painting.. I'm using a mouse; so it took me a lot of time to do this. I need a lot of practice on refining and blending. So I need your help, guys.

    Looks very nice!

    Only thing I can say would be to ad a little more contrast to the top around the grooves near where the stem comes out.

    Also, don't be afraid to shade!

    dessinateurimpulsif: nice try, I like the first rough stadium the most, because later on you seem to lose effectivity, to lose expression and focus too much on few details... You could put some research into texture brushes to catch its surface better.

    Thanks for this comment Jonish...I think the same as you ,the fruit i drawn is too blurry and the texture i tried to do is awfull, but i don't know how i can do better, I didn't read this thread entirely, so i'll try to find more information about textures here... Thanks one more time.

    I looked the bust of Beethoven. I think this one is made of plaster, so i think it must be lighter on the lighted part....

    You're absolutely right, plaster it is. I'll try some other one tomorrow, I will be more careful about values.

    I thought that I'll try to find some tutorial for you, but I was unlucky. Sorry.

    Well, you're certainly getting there Jonish!

    There was an old saying about drawing I heard, it's that, if you can show it to someone, and they can tell what it is, it's a pretty good achievement.

    Now all you have to do is master the levels, you've got values pretty well down already.

    dessinateur it looks very warm, all those shiny colours make me happy, maybe try to spend more time with studying shadow and overall shape. good work so far.

    twitchy thank you, for me, i would be very happy if people are able to tell -who- is there! ^_^

    Xeom, there's smudge tool which can screw up your whole painting if not used carefully. Have you tried to paint a stroke, then <alt>-pick that semi-tone and repeat procedure until you get satisfying gradient? In some videos I saw Massive Black guys doing really nice and quick gradients with simple stroke of smudge tool, I should check it out again.

    Hope it helps you. You can also have a look at Furiae's "smooth blending" tutorial. http://www.furiae.com/index.php?view=gallery
