    @ Lake, thanks for the critique. I know I need to spend more time and focus more on the whole piece. I'm quite easily bored, so after spending like 20 minutes at a piece I want to do another one. Imagine how many unfinished pieces I have haha!

    hey how long does it usually take people to do each painting in photoshop?

    This took me like 10hrs working on a 4x6" wacom, (using references that were found before painting regarding machine parts)

    i like that everyone is still posting! I should get off my butt and do another still life... I think I will.
    Jjohanson, did you do this from life or a photograph? If you used a reference photo may I see it? I think you need to work on your drawing of the apple first. Also, the black shadow is very harsh. By the way jjohanson I LOVE YOUR SIGNATURE!
    Eryn, that took you ten hours? Well I'm pretty slow, Sometimes it's taken me three hours just to do a fruit. I would like to see you take a crack at a still life.
    crayonmaster: yeah hitting the fruit with a little brown reflective light and getting rid of the white background would be good too. I kept the white background with some of mine and after I got a couple of good critiques I realized it was too intense.
    snackboy:good first post! post another!
    wintersreich: I think you are using a really low opacity. Try another apple with higher opacity.

    Eryn - I believe the reason it's taking you so long is because you're working in on the details VERY early. If you're painting/drawing in photoshop, it's much, much easier to use guidelines to describe the general shapes, then work from the most general areas towards the most specific, not the other way around. Post some fruit.

    alot of you here should look up colour temperature.

    see here for an example: http://conceptart.org/forums/showpos...2&postcount=66


    I'll post a more detailed explanation of the 'colour temperature' part soon

    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.

    please read these.

    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 -
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=47859

    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.
