    Crisp and Juicy.

    My third still life, and my first created entirely in ArtRage. Hope you like it!

    This is awesome, very photo real, did you use the oil brush mainly for this?

    Thank you!

    Yes. I used no other brushes. My process does use blenders, layers, transparency, and blend modes quite a bit and I did apply layer blurring once when I had to.

    My favorite brush which I use very extensively is what I call a "NiceShader". I use it for "dry" blending and with repeated sampling of the colors laid down, can be used to make subtle effects. It's the something like faint glazing which would be done with real paint (I assume). I find this kind of blending produces accurate colors in ArtRage.

    EDIT:

    PLEASE NOTE:

    I forgot to mention, for the NiceShader brush I have removed "Size" from the "Pen Pressure" setting of the "Stylus Properties".

    This allows maintaining the brush size when applying hardly any pressure which is needed when covering large areas with the shader.

    Thank you Caesar.

    Yes I did crop it... early on I decided to concentrate on only one apple - between the jars. The reference photo had many apples... too many! The only thing I miss in the final is the background, but we must make choices.

    I left the rough work outside unrefined and uncorrected and continued to work on my area of interest.

    PS Is there an easy way to crop an entire painting (all layers - I usually have 10) in ArtRage so that you can continue working on a smaller painting? EDIT: Caesar answered this question.

    This is a good question indeed and I think You may do it by resizing the canvas (not the painting) on modify and then move the painting by drawing it into the little frame (by pointing and keep left mouse button pressed of course). What would be interesting is how to resizing simultaneously several layers without merging them all first or, at least, being able to de-merge them afterwards. Maybe by groups of layers? I never used this feature indeed. So I have no answer for this latter, but I hope someone does.

    You are absolutely correct. Crop/Expand Canvas does the trick - it's right there in the Edit menu.

    Good enough to eat. Really looks delicious.

    Beautifully rendered. Nice attention to detail. I love the skin.
