    Thanks Datameister. You're right about misshapen eyes. Spent too much time on the skin I overlooked the eyes! (pun unintended )

    Here's my second face/skin tone study. Experimenting with a different brush this time. Pen pressure is off as this brush runs slow with it on, so I had to rely on the opacity slider. Not sure where this was going in the initial stages but I realized later on that it's good with a glazing technique (brushstroke layer on layer buildup). More painterly too than just relying on a hard round and a viewer's eyes blend the colors when seen from a distance.

    Much, much better. I love the texture you've got going here. As much as I adore working with pressure sensitivity, I think turning it off actually improved this study. You have gotten a much more painterly effect than what many people create in Photoshop, especially in the eyes. However, I do feel like that texture doesn't really work on her lips--they appear chapped and dry. Also, the eyebrows are pretty much all one flat color.

    So that brush tip in the image is what you used the whole time? What kinds of setting did you use?

    Yup Datameister, I only used this uncustomized tip for this study. I'm exploring other PS brushes that I wouldn't instinctively pick right away, so I decided to see what works and doesn't quiet work with this particular brush. Obviously it's not optimal for detail painting but I went ahead anyway as part of the exercise.

    I'll probably try something less toothy texturewise in my next study. Maybe something that gives a wash effect (like in watercolors or brushed ink).

    Tonight's test brush: the spatter brush. Reduced scaterring to aroung 66% from the default 486% (!). It's a juicy brush at high opacity - you'll have to try it to know what I mean. Like the dry brush in the previous test this is not exactly for detail painting. You could try and get some okay results, but it's a pain in the neck, back, and wrist This particular painting sketch is made the more challenging when the photo ref was in black in white. Touched up some tiny areas with a smudge blender but I left other areas as is to show where I had some difficulties blending.

It's possible to achieve the exact same results with the Normal mode; it just takes a little practice.
    I was wondering about this. I find that brushes in multiply mode need to be used sparingly. A brush set at 20% opacity in multiply mode can go to pure black or oversaturate a color in fewer strokes than you would expect.

    Exactly, figure2. If I practiced painting with Multiply enough, I'm sure I'd be able to use it to my advantage. But I feel like it's just not necessary (usually). Occasionally, I'll be painting and think Ooh, I could really use Multiply right now! and use it on a whim. It has its uses. But I don't use it frequently. I tend to forget that I'm in Multiply; then I'll try to blend colors through sampling, and I end up darkening rather blending.

    This is probably the single most useful thread here... Kudos to BUMSKEE!... Sorry, I'm kinda late on the fruits drawing... I'm just starting to paint in PS... We don't have apples in the house so here's my yellow pear (please be kind, I'm drawing with a mouse here)...



    LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!

    Porro, if you are aiming for representational, then don't outline the apple, especially with a thick black line. Also pay closer attention to the actual shape of the apple, this one seems much too round and iconized, but that could be simply because of the outline. It has a nice gestural sense to it though.

    Hi ras,

    Thanks for the advice and feedback. Yes i much like the more stylized approach than the still life approach. I hope i did not spoil this thread.

    I'll definetly have another go, but look at lightning the lines. I think the pen pressure is a little too sensetitive.

    I'd recommend starting with a more literal, realistic approach before you go for a more stylized look. This will allow you to gain a really complete understanding of Photoshop's tools and refine your workflow. Don't get ahead of yourself, you know what I mean?

    For now, don't use any soft brushes. They have their uses, but not many of them. Stick with hard brushes for a while, with pressure sensitivity set to affect flow and opacity. If you see "checkered" areas where medium-opacity strokes have been partially layered, use the sampling and blending techniques discussed near the beginning of this thread.

    This apple isn't a bad start, but it doesn't appear to have been worked on for more than fifteen or twenty minutes. Especially at first, you'll need more time than that in order to get a "finished" end product.

    Good luck, and keep on postin'!

    1st post for me and I'd just like to thank the maker and contributors of this thread! I looked for so long for this exact page. I got my wacom in december and tried tinkering with it in PS but it wasn't working out but just from the few tips on the 1st post I actually made something! Anyways, that was my 2 cents and THANK YOU SO MUCH for the info on how this whole process works.

    Sorry I didn't post the steps but this is the end result from just using your tips...

    Joining the party late, but saw this thread and thought I would participate. I do not paint very often and just wanted to say this is a very helpful thread! I found doing the exercise bumskee laid out along with forcing myself to relearn and use the keyboard hotkeys in tandem with painting made for a great experience. Sorry I don't have any WIP shots



    Did this in about 45 min - 1 hour, had a lot of fun and boosted my confidence. Thanks again for the inspiration everyone!

    hi people, newb here.

    I read this whole thread then gave it a go. Very inspiring and I'm pretty pleased with my first results. I had trouble with controlling the blending in all directions with the gradients, and also the highlights and skin texture. I also spent quite a long time on this... I'm gunna have another go, to try and speed things up and raise the quality. Thanks to Bumskees tuition and Teigrobs efforts, very very helpful

    I was inspired by the colours and style of bumskees orange... the skin is hard though! I think I might try and work through all the main fruits, before trying anything harder. I also tried the 'upsizing' technique with this one, I started with a 800x800 canvas and upped it to 2000x2000px later. Great method that one!

    lemon

    great texture on that end bit simplejack!

    here's a lemon (no pun intended) with a small, sad confession, I had hoped to do a little more on this but.. ermm... it kind of dried out and went mouldy, not to mention sacrificing my G&T.

    oranges are good.... people should give em a go... quite easy until the skin bit haha.... then uh-oh.. trouble time!

    Pootle: lemons scare me after my orange attempt, capturing that damn texture accurately is tricky!

    I'm trying a banana next, and so far it sucks major balls! Hope I can rescue it with the details :/ .........

    Hey guys, looking good! "Fruit club"! hehe.. yeah orange suck.. I don't think i could even attempt another.... oh the pain..

    simplejack, it's looking sweet, I think it's a little too white for the highlights and obviously you held back when it comes to the rest of the whole thing. still very nice, and yes I read that method on one of the threads in cgtalk.com I think.

    Pootle, orange and lemon are pretty much the same except for the colours I think. eeeee... keep the fruits rolling..

    really great work evrybody, this is definitly THE beginners thread !!
    Kane702>> Yeah the anatomy is all off, but that wasn't the purpose of the
    study, and anyways i found this thing soo ugly now that it's some days old.
    bumskee>> haha yeah i agree with you on that, in fact i didn't even know what values are, some readings about color theories clarified all this.And i'm having some hard time right now doing the 2 first idiotapathy assignements .
    well, as i promised here is my fruits painting ! For my second try at dealing with colors, i choosed to paint a still life. 5 hours of work, but it really was worth it, since i learnt so much more than i expected. especially that i only used the hard-edged brush !.

    as always your crits are welcome.
