    Hey all.

    Done this image a while back, and i think it went okay for my first go at digital painting.
    http://lkodel.deviantart.com/art/An-apple-64896765
    Any comments/crits to help me improve are welcome!

    I am now working on a slightly larger painting, a bowl of fruit. It is going okay but very slow, I need to work on my technique or something to speed up.

    Unhappy

    Man some of you guys make colouring look so darned easy! I tried an apple about maybe a month or so ago when I was lurking the old thread. Hopefully tonight I can get on my (shared with my brother) comp and give it another go!

    It seems to be a bit pastel-like for me without any volume

    Well, I feel a little silly offering critique, because I don’t really feel that I am of the required skill level to be giving advice to many of you… However, everyone seems to want input, myself included, and since I shouldn’t expect from others what I don’t take the time to do myself- here goes.

    Bumskee: I took some time to peruse your sketchbook/website... wow, stunning work. Thanks so much (again) for taking the time with this thread; it's a great source of motivation (as opposed to the inspiration/frustration which the "It's Finished" section provides) and that really means the world Your onions on page one of this thread are simply amazing...

    Noxartemus: Love the pear… In my beginner’s opinion, you really captured the colors and textures perfectly.

    Stoat: I’m not sure what you mean about the perspective- they look a lot like apples to me . To my untrained eye, they seem a bit too shiny… aside from that, or even with that, beautiful.

    Kosher_Commander: lol, love the name… maybe the context of fruit and vegetables just makes it better? Anyhow, I like the soft, blended feel you gave to your pumpkin… maybe a bit too soft?

    BeckyHew: The apple looks fantastic. I seriously don’t see anything about it I would change. The harsh lighting makes for nice sharp contrast.

    Rsoffar: You did that with a mouse? Wow… I respect the sheer amount of patience you must have. The apple looks a bit lopsided in the lower right corner, but I definitely understand the difficulty of sketching with a mouse.

    MrArmadillo: The colors look perfectly natural- if they were changing before your eyes, it definitely doesn’t show. I am a bit unclear about the white circle on the side… I would guess that it’s a sticker, but only because of the tiny little tab.

    Private Walter: While you seem to have the colors down, the overall 3-D feel is missing… The sketch of the shadow also doesn’t really seem to be where I would expect, based on the way the apple is lit. I would probably try to take a simpler object, like a sphere, and analyze the way the values change.

    Daray: I definitely see what you mean about the pastel feel, but I like the style. It’s unique.

    Bonaparte Jones: You really got all the colors there! I am just now learning to see all the colors in an object, and your painting definitely helps with that sort of thing. The part of the onion visible between the crack in the outer skin doesn’t seem finished though…


    I wish I had more time to paint... Although, even as I write that, I know there is no excuse Here's my second photoshop painting:

    Name:  shirtarm.jpg
Views: 11017
Size:  226.5 KB

    Not exactly a fruit or a vegetable, so I hope that isnt against the rules... It remains unfinished because I foolishly started painting it in the sunlight, which I only get to paint once a week when I am not at work. That being said, at least now the process is clearly visible and y'all can give me some tips about that.

    Read some of part one, and I'm very impressed. I'm just new to photoshop and this site (this being my first post ever).

    This is my first try of painting something from life in photoshop, all I've done before this is editing photos.

    You should note that I've used a crappy touchpad to do this (I really want a tablet, but I'm short on money):

    1: My apple as I first made it; yesterday
    2: Today: Added highlights and smoothed it a bit
    3: Today: Added more shadows
    The bonus one: For fun, just played around with some settings. It's the no. 3 which is the 'finished one'

    My first real try.

    Ok this is my first post and my first real serious attempt at digital painting. I'm fairly experienced with traditional paints but i've always been frustrated with working with tablets and photoshop. After reading through some tutorials on here I realized my settings just really sucked. I worked on this for about an hour and a half and it was pure joy. Thanks for all the great info guys!!!

    here's my first: sorry for lack of intermediate steps: First is the base drawing, the next is the final. I've really had trouble trying to render sharp edges in the apple, and some of the midtone colors. I'll still try to make at least one of these daily, to see how it goes. TIME: about 30 minutes straight.

    One question for the master bumskee: how come does the third brush in your basic.abr have two darker holes in the middle of the lighter circle? wouldn't just the large circle work the same?

    Why a solid brush? Why not a 50% flaired brush?

    I drew a face in 45 minutes, but I didn't finish. I drew it out of proportion and used liquify to get everything in it right place, and I used the brush set on color to change the coloring. I always like drawing with a flaired brush so everything blends as I work. Every 30 to 45 seconds I did a save as, to have a picture for each of my steps. I stoped at 60 pictures, and made a movie.

    I don't know why people like to use the solid brush and then smuge or what ever. Maybe you can explain what makes that way better. I also like to use a laser mouse, and I have had a tablet, but I will stick with the mouse. In the meanwhile check out my movie http://archie-chipps.com/new/Faces.mov

    Brilliant video, AChipps! I dunno if you know or not, but you can embed youtube videos in forums, makes it quicke and easier to see vids.

    My only real crit of the face you produced in the vid (and is also true of the animal face in your profile pic) is that it is very flat. I think it might have somehting to do with the way that you work on the each component of the face seperately, with only a very vague impression of the rest of the face.

    For example, in the video you start off with a big fleshy-pink circle for the face, then go straight into placing the features which are all then paintined seperately ( and highly accurately). This results in a 'pie dish' face.

    Maybe you could try to paint a face ina three-quarters position and see how your liquify technique handles it.

    When painting with hard brushes you often work work from big shapes to small defining on the way with picking colors between and mix them in with low opacity hard brush. read what bumskee says in the first post and I think it will enlighten you on how you can get a good blend with hard brushes.
    Are you shure you got the right settings for the tablet? som people might find them wrong just because someone set them to mouse mode (I'm teaching digital painting-basics).

    It's hard to explain, but I'm the type of person that turns a watch into a magnet just by wearing it. That energy stores up in the pad, and makes a hole in the middle where the pen starts to jump across the gap. After the charge went away, I gave the pad to another artist that needed one.

    woop! good stuff guys/gals, will try and comment soon on them fruits..

    gringoloco, no idea what the two dots actually do.. it was kinda ermm random I think.. *shrug* hehe works for me tho..

    AChipps, it's a decent start.. but u really need ur wacom.. it's for your own good and health wise too... well if u draw 8~10 hrs a day it may become more clearer for you. As for painting portraits, you may have better luck with crits in critique section, this thread is more about observation and trying it out in PS.. and also the reason we "try" and use hard edge.. nothing wrong with soft edge.

    naomiful, errmm allergic to apples? WOAH! dude... u are missing out.. heh.. yeah grapes and whatevers lying around ur desk!

    Just got my Wacom this morning and have been painting and browsing this thread since. I'm so excited!
    Didn't have an apple so I drew a teacup that was on my desk.
    And there was a glass there as well so I drew that instead of a beer bottle.

    gringoloco... nice plum!!!! you've really captured that white textures on the skin.. I think the next step would have been in to punch in some more deep red into it.. nice

    kicks, nice work tackling things around ur desk! just watch the strokes.. kinda hard to explain but strokes can do wonders for you..

    sangmort, look forward to it..

    Celestial, tomato turned out great!!!, tho the mango is a little flat... nice work, keep it going, add some shadows and what it's sitting on too..

    stahr, really love the strong strokes and it's evident you've tried to nail the colours.. nice.. that's the best approach. You could take it further with blending here and there.. as you've done on the bottom.. but it holds very well.. the shadows little rushed perhaps? but eitherway nice one.. keep it going..

    gringoloco! I think the green apple turned out awsome, subtle colours and the warmer grey works great.. nothing wrong with adjusting and stuff, I probably post some stuff about it down the track.. but yeah.. good job!

    animbot.. you've nailed the form! you could use some details but it's a tomato, they usually don't have many things on them..hehe.. makes them harder to paint I think.. nice work nonetheless!

    zeeble, that's a persimmon? or something..whatever that is called.. very nice form, good contrast.. My only crit would be the green stuff, it's a little too roundish, happens when u blend too much I think.. it u approach it blocky and be a little bit more bold with it, should work better... try zooming in to get those thin lines happening too..


    Iliada, touchpad? as in.. laptop touchpad??? u can shp around for a cheap grapphire.. or even a second hand.. the difference will go a long way.. I kinda liked where u were heading at 1, you've sort of made it a little plastic-ish with soft edge highlights.. also the edge needs to be a little bit more defined.. but then again..without a tablet, mighty effort..

    ender62, drapery is one of the hardest thing to understand and paint.. it's jsut so hectic.. hehe.. nice take on it.. I think it was loomis who said you should try and simplify it.. and as in the case with drapery.. maybe you could give that a go? also.. try blending less..and get those block ins nice and early.. then you don't have to work so much trying to get it right.. keep it going dude..

    donaparte, nice onion! a little flat in terms of the whole shape.. but there's nice subtlety to your onion, especially the brighter orange tip on the left side.. nicely done.. try to blend less and check out idiot apathy's community project too, helps with the colours a lot.. that orange hit on the left really works well.. keep it going dude..

    Daray, good effort!, yeah it is a little flat, and the colours a little muted.. it's not actually just add white or black to up and down the scale for a colour but lots of hue shift and saturation as well.. but that's another story and would best be explained in idiot apathy's thread.. as for the apple, yeah.. try and train ur eyes to see what colour u are looking at and should turn out alright.

    Onir, I think painter stuff is fine too.. depsite it being photoshop section.. I haven't used much painter so I doubt I can offer much of help in technical things.. but feel free to post some stuff dude!

    Ikodel.. nice shape and all.. tho.. I don't actually get the feeling it's not painted too much... try and draw, block in..and then finish kinda approach.. I think the apple on its own works great... but the shadow, stem and the leaf seems to have the stuck on look... also the background too.. try and grab the real thing and work from there if u can..

    After taking your advice in both threads Bumskee I spent about 2 hours in photoshop and here's what came out!

    I think it's an improvement over my last attempt but the shadow makes it look off.

    Yes, I didn't put much time at all to the shadows, the most of it went into rendering the onion, tried to focus on that. but i'm reading up on perspective and light perspective so I will be doing better I hope
    and yes you're right, more blending could be applied, but i tried to not take to much time for the excersize.
    I'm thinking about doing a fruit next time, Lemon (if I can find one of thoose with a fluctuating green and yellow surface). or perhaps a red onion this time. (I find apples boring hehe).

    thanks for allowing me to join would definitely use PS but I gotta figure out why it stopped working on my comp.. anyway I did do a study in painter. I have a step by step so perhaps there is an error somewhere in my process that I'm not seeing? either way here they are:

    Digital Painting In PS #2

    I'd like to try to offer some crits for people in this thread, but I gotta get up early tomorrow for class. I'll come back asap and try to help out!
