Strawberry, practice (AD)

Recommended Posts

This was mainly to try a few different ways of doing things to see if the extra effort was worthwhile or not. The main thing was not to use gradients but draw a bunch of objects to make pseudo-gradients so you've a bit more control over things. There a few rough bits like the leaves but it's ok. As usual it took longer than I expected, I should really have learnt by now.

Realistic and nicely executed!

Best regards!

The leaf bits came out with a nice painterly look, while the strawberry itself came out very realistically!  If you ever have the chance, I'd be interested to see how you do your preparation before you start building and workflow once you do start.

Another fantastic piece....Nice technique...Painting with vector objects (using colour/tints/opacity and irregular shapes) is an effective way of creating texture..Can be a bit unpredictable at times though...:)
Much better method than using layer/object effects (Gaussian Blur) to blend/mix...

Might have to buy some strawberries now....

BnBGobo99, Yeah if it wasn't mainly to try some things out or I would done the leaves more realistically too, but they're not dreadful (says me). Also they have a sort of painty look to them in real life, they're not just plain. 

Thanks Stuart, I did actually use blurs in this but not opacity or gradients. It does give you more control but also takes a lot longer so I doubt I'd use it all the time, just for certain things. Depending on what you're doing it would just add work for no gain. However something more complicated that I've started will do it this way too.
