    I wish that I had access to photoshop when I was at Atlanta Arts college back in the day. Would have made my life a lot easier!!!!

    If people weren't showing their steps, I'd think some of these were photos. Here's one I did last night:

    One more for this thread. Any others will be in my sketchbook so I can stop double-posting.

    (Edit: On second thought, maybe I will keep posting stuff here too.)

    Thank you so much for the tutorials.
    My problem is I'm still afraid of picking colours to block.
    I will practice more. : )

    Critics Critics Critics!! Please gimme some comments

    Never tried still life drawing nor taking any classes.. just drawing casually but somehow right now I really do want to learn to draw and hoping to become a character designer ^^

    Anyway here's my apple (The sun's going down while I'm drawing and I didn't turn on the light so the shadow and highlights is more or less "guessing" after I've sketched the lines)

    Great post. I have a question regarding quality of my work. I have a really hard time making my work look more HD, the colors just don't look right and very unflattering. I'm pretty new to the digital world-of-art. Should I costumize my photoshop colors? Any help would be great, thanks!

    @Haysen85: You don't need any special settings in Photoshop. Post some art and you'll get some feedback.

    Hello! I have been looking through this thread and have been taking notes and I finally sucked it up made an honest attempt!

    I went 50% flow and used the basic round and I limited myself to one hour. Im a terrible drawer so my original sketch was off terribly but i forced myself to work through the pain

    I have tried some studies before but I became way to frustrated and self critical... so this is my first post You don't have to be gentle, im open to critic

    Btw i couldn't find an apple so i looked for a photo... Im really new to posting so i may sound dumb saying this but, do i credit the person who took the photo under "copyright" or credit me..? Ill delete it if i get it wrong

    I'd sure like to get back into digital painting. I apologize if this was already answered somewhere in here, but: should the average beginner start with a grayscale painting and add color, or just start with color from the beginning? How does either process affect your work? I have used both Photoshop and opencanvas before and I find that when I start with color (especially opencanvas) my paintings get muddied and desaturated. How do you guys work around this?

    Hi Bodied, IMHO you should start with with grayscale value studies before you work in color. If a picture doesn't work in black & white, it usually won't work in color either. Work in grayscale until controlling value become easy/automatic, then move to color.

    That makes sense. I have always been frustrated with my attempts in Photoshop though, and I think it's because I haven't found brush settings that work for me yet. Would you mind telling me what brushes you use?

    I keep it pretty basic most of the time. Mostly just slightlly soft rounds with some combination of pressure opacity and/or pressure size. Sometimes I"ll also squish the brush a bit to add some direction to the strokes. The only time I really go to more complex brushes is to speed up painting repetitive details like spots.

    Alright, that's pretty helpful! I think I'll experiment with hard brushes. I was never fully satisfied with the idea of using all those preloaded media brushes from Photoshop cause they just ended up looking like pattern stamps.

    I don't have Photoshop; I have SAI, where the brushes blend automatically. But here's what I've got:

    Cockatricewright: you can turn down blending on Sai, or just use the pencil (adjust density) for a while, until your core values and colours are determined. I'd reccommend doing that until closer to the end-- define form before you blend. Also, watch your edges, even in shadows. Shadows aren't always a smooth gradient, and cast shadows especially (the one under the, uh, "top part" of the pot) tend to be sharper

    Gotta do one of these myself.

    First post, and first real attempt at using color digitally. Any critique/comments or help is greatly appreciated. There's a lot of inspiration in this thread!

    Thanks, Bumskee

    I just wanted to say thanks very much, Bumskee, for your helpful explanations of your work process in digital painting. The bit about frequent and repeated sampling, in particular, was very helpful to me, and took my colors to the next level.

    This is the first time I've tried using a hard brush to blend instead of going for the soft brush right away. I really like the result, some of my other stuff was looking too washed out.

    Too bad I forgot about the shadow until the last step though. I added it in on a separate layer and the bottom looks kind of weird.

    Here's my attempt. Unfortunately I forgot about the shadow and had to add it in after so it looks a bit weird.
