    Thumbs up

    It looks great, try using lower saturation and change values. Try learning from andrew loomis too at http://fineart.sk/index.php?s=72&cat=15

    well...your last picture of an apple didn't improve much. I suggest to try to draw just round shapes of baclk and white and trying to make them more 3-d by blending those colors. Kinda of like sketching it with the pencile. Then try to work on adding some colors...

    You may want to experiment with different opacity and flow settings and see what kind of results you get. In the brush settings tab, there are more options- play around with those too and see what happens.

    The first image is a small experiment that I did a while ago to see how the different settings of opacity and flow affected the outcome of the digital paint. It's kind of a crappy example, but you can get the jist of it. There are of course many more settings than just opacity and flow once you get into the brush settings, but this was just a simple gauge.

    The second image is how I typically blend. I just used a soft round brush for this example. I usually keep flow at 100 unless working on clouds or mist, etc. I tend to keep the opacity pretty low and just build my color up. If you have a tablet, you can set the opacity to pen pressure so that the harder you press, the "thicker" the paint lays down.

    Also, something I've noticed is that when working with colors that are lighter in value, I have to set the opacity lower than what I do the darker values to keep the build up of paint the same. Like the user above me mentioned (I suck at remembering to make a note of names), it may be easier for you to get the hang of it working with just value rather than getting into hue too.

    But that's what I do. Definitely experiment a bit and see what works for you.
