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:
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.
I did the sketch with 100% on 100% (opacity, flow) with just pen pressure to it's shape (other dynamics was turned of, ok!? )
Blocked in with the same setting as above, just varied the opacity to 96%
Blending was done with an 83% opacity
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!!
Katrina!! I'm waiting for your apple!! YOU KNOW I AM~
