    Onion!

    It's a Vegatable, but finally, this is my first effort
    I used only hard edge brushes.

    colours picked aren't so bad. Should block in with a solid brush in future

    ok, I don't know what I was thinking here. I think I started and wasn't really into it. Turned into a mush so took a break. Only about 20mins up to now of tearing hair.

    Digital Painting In PS #2
    Came back, threw some new colours in there, added some detail

    Digital Painting In PS #2
    brought the form shadow back, more detail, starting to think more about edges (where not to blend, where to blend and how much).

    Digital Painting In PS #2
    added alot more detail, added new colours observed (probably due to sitting here for a while now of time).

    Digital Painting In PS #2
    refined detail, nailed some edges etc.

    Overall around 3 hours maybe more First attempt at a fully rendered realism paint in Photoshop. A lot of detail has been left out (top and bottom of onion) and it looks a little oily for my liking. I stopped and posted because I need some crit before I do another so that I can be faster and more efficient.

    EDIT: resized the 'working' images. Hope the final is ok as is. It is the full size of the painting.

    I FINALLY forced myself to do this exercise and I think I learned a thing or two.
    Of course I forgot to save steps but luckily I make step-layers from time to time.. if that makes sense.

    My first ever attempt at painting within photoshop, however I left it a little too late on in the day. After about an hour my lightings changed too much in order to remain similar, thus posting what I shall continue on with tomorrow. And thanks for the inspiration to try!

    Hello everyone!

    Somebody in my sketchbook thread advised me to paint some fruits to practice rendering, and then I remembered there was a thread that had just this.

    Here's a 3 hour study (with photo reference provided at the end) of an apple. I did not use the colour sampler as a means to practice my perception of colour. I realized the colours ended up being off mid-way, but I made the best of it and continued. This is all done using the basic round brush.

    Tell me what you think of it as I'm here to improve. Feel free to comment on my sketchbook as well (link provided on signature)

    EDIT: I spent an extra 20 minutes to blend some parts of the apple. I thought it might make it look less like it was cel-shaded. Any thoughts?

    Oooh, some legit stuff coming in. Keep up the good progress everyone.

    Speaking of people posting, I decided I'd get on this myself, seeing as in every other medium the instructor will get people started doing still life. Why is it I never considered the same for PS? Hahaha.

    Anyway, here's my apple. I'll do a potato or something later. I definitely learned a thing or two doing this. Number one thing I can say is: don't be afraid to lay down vibrant, contrasting colors. Trying to make everything blend gradually ends up turning colors to mud (just like real paint!).

    i dont know.
    it looks kind of flat.

    and too. soft?

    ive been using a round brush with no thinner sensitivity, it fades and the opacity depends on how hard i press it. in addition i turn the opacity anywhere from 60-80 and the flow is usually always on about 50.

    loaded pencil - Those tentacles look pretty legit! But yeah, the image is a bit on the bright side. Typically you want three values, with your image mostly in the midtones and shadows area, with just a bit of highlight. This one is almost all highlight. Keep painting!

    Guys, I would just like to express my thanks for everything that's in here. I am learning so much more in the short time I registered here than in the months I was trawling and teaching myself with deviantArt tutorials.

    Mad cheers!

    Okay, going back to reading stuff in page 1 now.

    Nonsane - your colors and blending look fairly accurate to me - but your edges and your silhouette are off, dude. Watch out for the wobbly edges and make it smooooooth like an apple skin.
