    While correct in saying that many people here do not yet know how to use color temperature variation to make their images "pop," the link you posted isn't informative on the subject.... much at all.

    here's the general art tutorial by Prometheus[ANJ]: (there's some color stuff in there, but I'm pretty sure all of it will help everyone here)
    http://itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm

    aaaaaaand color theory, pretty much all you need to know.

    No it isn't informative at all. Just an abstract example. I wasn't intending to give a tut on it as I've only really started practicing with it. I did say that I'd be amending the details of colour temp in the future and that I hadn't detailed yet. Just to urge people to look into it is all I intended.

    Apologies if this sounded patronizing, that certainly wasn't my intention

    In Photoshop blending is not a tool, it is a way of using the brush tool and changing the opacity.

    Here are some great starting points -

    Very Brief Explanation of blending techinque:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...9&postcount=46
    In this little tutorial you have to set the pen pressure to change opacity not brush size.

    I will find some more and post them up but these are definately good places to start. I will try to rig up an example using screenshots and/or a video when I have time of the process. I am still learning how to do it but I have the basics down so I feel I'd be able to teach someone.

    I'd recommend having a go in greyscale first to allow yourself so you are not distracted with picking colours etc.

    It is very much a personal technique to build on and so it is important that you find as many threads, tutorials and video's as possible on the subject (which can be tricky to find). Hope this helps. I'll post something more useful when I'm not bogged down with uni work.

    I'll be honest... I don't even see a stalk on your apple. Seems to me like you're rushing the sketch stage. You have some skill in the painting department, but your forms aren't reading mainly because the shapes weren't well thought out from the get-go.

    In terms of the painting, you need darker shadows and you should consider using a slightly higher saturation in one area - BUT NOT TOO MUCH.

    heres my first digital painting, i decided to paint a lemon since i didn't have apples
    I wasn't exactly sure how to get the texture of the lemon but i tried my best, i guess i will experiment more with that.

    thanks heaps for the crit
    yeah i completely agree i think i did rush the sketch and didnt emphasize the apples perspective properly which is why it looks funny + there wasnt a stalk but i meant the holey dip thing that it goes into lol?? dont know what its called.
    i will try to sponge the advice in
    thanks again

    I like the glass effect!
    But the tulip bloom is imho too large and looks oddly shaped, alas the bloom is not plastic at all. Try to play with shadows and maybe even exaggerate them. I don't know how much truth it is, but they should contain some additional blue inside.

    Also, the place where stalk goes into bloom looks like you didn't observe enough. I guess that there are more details and it's wrongly placed.

    Mainly because of the glass-part of your painting, I'm looking forward to see more, keep painting. Sadly that's the only way how to improve *smiles*

    Thanks for the tips Jonish! Very helpful critiques. I admit that I just couldnt get the bloom looking right and got really into trying to nail the vase. I guess it shows since that is what your liking about the picture.

    Take care.
