Digital painting...the studies commence!

So after I was done my portfolio I couldn't seem to pick up a pencil anymore. After losing hope with my digital paintings, I decided to stop doing complicated illustrations, slapped myself, and got to the basics. The following batch of posts will show my progress in the last month and a half, compared to my first five or so paintings which were done within a 2-3 year time frame. I cannot stress enough to anyone who wants to get into digital art to start off with simple subject matter and practice rendering. It will save you a lot of time and frustration. Anyways enough of my blabbering, here are my first set of studies, just plain old fruit.


  1. I remember seeing these a couple of weeks ago, and I was (still am) very impressed by them!

    I've started practicing digitally painting fruits myself; not nearly as cool looking as yours, but it's a start :)

  2. Thanks Pierre. Everyone has to start somewhere, as you can see in some of my first posts hehe. Just keep it really simple at first and don't go into full blown illustrations until you have the hang of it. Otherwise it might take you a lot longer to progress than you'd like. Good luck!
