this thread has been super helpful to me. ive had a tablet for a long time but have honestly never really finished anything with it because ive had no idea where to begin. anyways, here is my apple:
in hindsight i could have been much more adventurous with my values - particularly the lights and darks. but i am really happy with how much i have learned and improved with just this one exercise alone.
Well... here's my apple, also first ever digital painting. I wasn't too arsed with the stem or shadow, as I was really just looking to get blending down, and I *think* I've got it, but hey, shoot me down if I haven't.
Also thought it was gonna come out awesome but... Baby steps, right?
P.S: I used lightscientist's post for reference, so thanks to you, I hope you don't mind.

Whoops, posted in the original thread... my bad.
Here's my first attempt at painting something in photoshop since getting my Intuos4 for Christmas....
This is one of the first times I've broken through the starting stage of blocking in colour. I usually think I'm not getting the right shapes/tones and just give up but this time I stuck it out and I'm pretty happy with it.
Would appreciate advice. Also the reason the image is so small is because I did it on my teenie tiny netbook screen.
I'm so glad I came across this thread because I am a beginner with my digital tablet. I am going to school for Game Art Design but I need some digital painting skills! So I will be keeping up with this thread
As I saw this thread at my workplace, so I wanted to come home asap to try it out.
It was about 1,5 hour.
I know it's not a big difference between the last two, but it seems to me that blending and detailing can be made at the same time in this case. And yes, it's not really,really realistic, but I hope it's okay for a first try.
Hey guys, thanks for making this thread. Helped alot when I bought my first tablet on my birthday. I posted the apple i painted in my sketchbook, hoping to get it critique, but no dice. So thought I'd drop by post it, and see if anyone can help me make it better. Note, I used GIMP But I will be receiving PS CS3 for 28$ soon
Just starting learning about digital painting. Stumbled upon this thread and even though I'm late to the party I figured it be good practice. I have no real painting background except for airbrushing scale plastic models.
