Hi Brigitte, yes I adored that onion! The tomatoes look good too, I think (if you don't mind me saying) you just need a little more depth, modeling and shadows all around - particularly in the stem. I think your highlights and light values are fine, as tomoatoes aren't as shiny like peppers. Luckily it's easy to go darker rather than lighter. Just my two cents, disregard at will! When I was studying botanical illo - this was a constant thing for me, Lauretta was always putting her tracing paper over my drawing and adding depth, depth, depth! Oh, I have to find that tutorial for you, *smacks forehead*! I promise I'm writing it down now and will get it to you within 24 hours!
Great tomatoes:)Probably Susan is right but I like them:)
Hi! Thanks for dropping by my blogsite, finally I have come around to visit. You have some amazing artwork. Love what I have seen...off the bat we have something in common, besides art, I too suffer with arthritis, fibromyalgia, degenerative discs.....enough, so I feel your pain. It was a pleasure to visit...I will be back! Nice to meet you.
Thanks for the tips, Susan - adding depth is indeed what I should think about more!
Brigitte - these exercises are fantastic! Your tomatoes look nice, but I do agree, that onion is wonderful. Great Detective piece, and I'm sure that the baby Ryan commission was welcomed with a very grateful and happy reaction...it turned out wonderfully!
Hey Brigitte! I'm doing some catching up... that baby Ryan illustration is so wonderful! I'm sure your clients were overjoyed. I missed your detective last week... very cool... reminds me of the game Clue. And finally... great onion and tomatoes. Very nice soft style. love the texture and color. You certainly deserve the Deborah award my friend.
I LOVE your tomatoes! That is such a brilliant red. Really beautiful. And your Detective made me laugh. Great pieces! :D
