    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.

    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.

    I'll be honest... I don't even see a stalk on your apple. Seems to me like you're rushing the sketch stage. You have some skill in the painting department, but your forms aren't reading mainly because the shapes weren't well thought out from the get-go.

    In terms of the painting, you need darker shadows and you should consider using a slightly higher saturation in one area - BUT NOT TOO MUCH.

    thanks heaps for the crit
    yeah i completely agree i think i did rush the sketch and didnt emphasize the apples perspective properly which is why it looks funny + there wasnt a stalk but i meant the holey dip thing that it goes into lol?? dont know what its called.
    i will try to sponge the advice in
    thanks again

    I like the glass effect!
    But the tulip bloom is imho too large and looks oddly shaped, alas the bloom is not plastic at all. Try to play with shadows and maybe even exaggerate them. I don't know how much truth it is, but they should contain some additional blue inside.

    Also, the place where stalk goes into bloom looks like you didn't observe enough. I guess that there are more details and it's wrongly placed.

    Mainly because of the glass-part of your painting, I'm looking forward to see more, keep painting. Sadly that's the only way how to improve *smiles*

    Thanks for the tips Jonish! Very helpful critiques. I admit that I just couldnt get the bloom looking right and got really into trying to nail the vase. I guess it shows since that is what your liking about the picture.

    Take care.

    Onion!

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

    Digital Painting In PS #2


    Digital Painting In PS #2
    colours picked aren't so bad. Should block in with a solid brush in future

    Digital Painting In PS #2
    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.

    Wink

    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.
