decided i would give this a go while i am in between jobs at work, so i did it rather quickly. (def gonna do some other ones once i get off to practice more)
this is my first attempt at digital painting and im using a mouse. (will be getting a wacom soon yay)
Bumskee your really good! especially the detail, they make them look like pictures. one thing though, you always skip really quickly through the details. i am a little intimidated by how you go from a roughly painted image to a highly detailed pic.
just would like if maybe you could include more steps between blend and detail.
oh and this image i did does not really follow the stuff your doing i will try to make some that follows the category, but still would like some feedback. sorry no steps
ok here's my cut at an apple. not all that good. looks really flat not much detail.
using a mouse (dang!) what's a good tablet to get? I was looking at wacom and there are a lot. what ones does everybody else have? (oh and i am looking in the price range of cheap)

oo a new digital painting in photoshop thread! just reading through the first few tutorials were really helpful Min, so thanks a bunch for that gotta figure out why my PS doesn't wanna work on this pc.. maybe I can sneak in to this with some painter studies at some point? hehe no harm in asking, right?
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:
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.
