How it's made: Fresh by BlackDelphin How it's made: Fresh by BlackDelphin
How it's made: My Fresh daily doodle~
The finished version is here: [link]

I for one thought i won't finish it, so i saved a few steps. When i finished it, started retouching and i realized that i saved these for just-in-case moments.

I am not sure these will help you much, but it's how you must think:

:bulletwhite: Sketch
:bulletwhite: Block in
:bulletwhite: Blend
:bulletwhite: Refine

And to this, if you're working with a reference like me, i grayscale the reference image and take a GOOD look at it. I look at the values, the darkest, the brightest (and you'll be surprises, that not always you get it right, when viewing in colour) i look at the texture, i look, for example, at the dots on the apple: how are they actually made? they're this layer of dark dots, brighter lines over there, darker lines over here, and so on :)

About the brushes that i used, only the standard hard, round one.
:bulletwhite: I did the sketch with 100% on 100% (opacity, flow) with just pen pressure to it's shape (other dynamics was turned of, ok!? )
:bulletwhite: Blocked in with the same setting as above, just varied the opacity to 96%
:bulletwhite: Blending was done with an 83% opacity
:bulletwhite: Refining, and some more smooth blending was done with the same settings as above, just that i set other dynamics to pen pressure.
In no case have i messed with the spacing or others..that is all.


Here ya go folks, for the ones that asked me ;)
And now you have no excuse to try one of these babies too!! :D

:iconk-atrina: Katrina!! I'm waiting for your apple!! YOU KNOW I AM~ :innocent:

i am glad it was of any help
be careful with your opacity; it was 100% no pen pressure when blocking;
