Sketchdump #88 – Digital still lifes

It’s been quite a while since I painted a still life. I’m mostly satisfied with the first one, but again didn’t really manage to losen up my brush strokes, so I tried again – endet up being messy instead of painterly though! If anyone has some advice how to practice brush economy and losening up, I’d be glad to hear it. Anyway, will try again :D

  1. Well done, Lyraina. Good composition! It is difficult to create a background like this.. How to do with real painting (acrylic) I could tell you, but in digital art I have unfortunally no experiences…

    • Thanks a lot, Cordula! :) Glad you like it.
      I’d love to get more used to some traditional media like watercolor, oil or acrylic paint, but it is so much more intimidating than working digital! Either way, the backgorund/cloth was really tough to paint, I’d be grateful for any advice how to do it better. Maybe I should do some cloth/fold studies…
      Thank you for your kind words!

  2. You’ve rendered the materials and textures really well, you can clearly tell they’re all different materials.

    I love the reflections in the kettle :D

    You make this look so easy.

    • Thank you very much! It actually isn’t this hard, because you can just see what it looks like, and try to reproduce it as good as possible… painting lots of reflections is fun! The hardest part for me is the cloth/background, because I easily lose patience with all those folds. Thanks for commenting :)
