I am following two paths here. The balls are from Mark Kistler and the Apple from Marelisa Fabrega.
My balls went a bit flat today, but I felt more confident making them. I can honestly say that I felt more confident making them. Not sure they are any better, but I felt better.
The apple is a different thing altogether. I was supposed to watch a 45 minute video on shading the apple, lighting an apple, taking photos of an apple, editing it in Photoshop and then finally drawing it.
It does actually look more applesque than I had imagined it was going to turn out. I am not sure the old masters need fear my artistic abilities just yet.
Three days down, twenty seven days to go.
