    Ok so heres still life number 3, really not happy with this one but each one is practice again, but I'm wanting the next one to be a bit of a step up from these hopefully. Oh and I;mthinking the midtone value on this is way to bright, not sure though.

    here is still life number 4, not even gonna comment about how this one came out, except the fact that it had a lot of hard edges which was proving really difficult to render out, so if anyone has any advice on that would be much appreciated .

    Are you using a brush on 100% hardness for the edges? because I seem to see just a little bit of blur around some.

    Also, the front side of that last study is very flat, try adding a little bit of gradient there as well. Though I think it's mainly missing a core shadow.

    In general, all your greyscale studies only have a short range of values, try to use all values, from near black to almost white.

    So yay, out of my still life studies I'm kinda half happy with this one so far, at least that I think it's better than the other ones so far. By the way that thing underneath it is a really badly rendered puddle thing lol.

    I would have to agree with Voodoo_Mama, working on the fundamentals would be most beneficial for you at this stage, you are jumping all over the place trying different things.

    Most evident seems to be lack of understanding of saturation. Simply put, saturation is the intensity of colour, it varies massively, just like hue, so take your time to figure out what goes where on the photoshop colour picker and do some more pieces from life. Really try to take note of the colour, value and saturation you are seeing

    Ok, so heres still life 7, was focusing only on the colours not the overall picture. Definitely going to just do greyscale for now and focus solely on the values and form. So ye if anyone can shine some light on any of this would be much appreciated.

    In some of your work the perspective is off. I say before you digital paint still lifes, try to work in a traditional media, noting perspective, proportion, and value.

    Ok, so heres some new posts with more than just the annoying still life studies lol. Theres two studies and two sketches I did of my insanely untidy room. The first was just a quick one and the second was more of a finishedish one (might colour it in photoshop sometime).

    I notice in your digital painting that you work with very small brushes. The best method is to work with larger brushes and gradually get smaller. This link is a pretty good one to learn the basics of digital painting.

    I would worry more about drawing than painting and rendering for now, though. Like the others said, focus mostly on the very basics - drawing and shading basic shapes, etc... which feels really boring, but will help with your still lifes and with everything else, really.

    Good start man, just keep going!
