    @Lup0z: It's a shame no one answered you several months ago when you posted your apple. Muddiness generally comes from strokes being too transparent and overlapping too much. When the individual parts lack definition, that's when things get muddy. You'll notice that in bumskee's example, he starts off with very opaque strokes. Each area is dominated by a single color. After that, you zoom in and carefully blend the edges between the strokes.

    @P0int12lank: Looks like a good start. It's lacking sharpness in some areas.

    @Villainbynecessity: Yours is a good start as well. The main things I see to work on here is contrast and shadow. I'd recommend doing some in grayscale to get a better handle on it.

    @Lagaard: As you said, looks kind of flat. It's mainly a lack of contrast and having very little difference in brightness between areas in light and ones in shadow. Also with the shadow on the apple, I'd pay closer attention to the shape the shadow makes. The edge will typically only be sharp near where it starts, then get blurrier the further away from the object.

    @quockhanhlk: It looks like a solid start. You've got a good amount of contrast between the light areas and shadow. The main thing I'm noticing here is the surface is all one hue. I'd recommend getting a closer look at the surface of the real one and working on reproducing it's pattern in the painting. Some more blending practice couldn't hurt either.

    -----
    Spent around 6ish hours tonight on a still life of a potato. It found it pretty challenging and wasn't really sure how to handle all the little bumps on the surface:

    Thanks to TinyBird for the link to this thread, it's exactly what I needed.

    About 4-5 hours of work I think. Need so much practice, but painting simpler objects definitely helps.

    I am quite overwhelmed with all of this and have come to realize I need help. I want to be able to color my work in Photoshop and be able to have a painterly style. However, my colors, shadings, highlights, everything all come out dull and flat. I tried reading the thread from the beginning but I got lost somewhere. How do I get started and where do I go to figure out how to get better at painting? I have looked up tons and tons of tutorials but they don't seem to be leading me in the right direction. Only getting me more and more confused.

    Spent about 30-60 mins on this.
    As a complete beginner, I was surprised with the realism of the result

    Also, my first post on these forums!

    Okay....I am totally new to digital painting or you can say any painting. My first attempt but ready to learn and improve on.

    Got inspiration from other artists here...but couldn't find an apple (my daughter ate the last one). Luckily there were some pears left in the fruit basket :-)

    Love this thread, thank you for setting it up. I am also happy to see it still going. Good work as well everyone.
    I found it really difficult getting started, and that made me get more frustrated which made it even more difficult to get started. But i brooke through the wall, and started placecing brush strokes, and alas, it got easier as i went on.

    You are new so you have faced some problem. But I am sure you will be an expert on photoshop within a moth.
