@Pixey--Funny part is, Neil moved to the US several years ago and now lives somewhere in my home state of Wisconsin. He has some King-like elements, but with more (dark) humor and fairytales/folklore. "Snow, Glass, Apples" is his retelling of Snow White.

Congrats Pixey. :) I love the apples you created. How did you do them? Did you follow a tutorial?

Thank you very much @mackenzieh :).

 

Yes, I based the apples on a tutorial that I used called Glass Yellow Tomatoes.  Principally it's a combination of that tutorial and Helen's Glossy Orbs.  I use Helen's technique of using the base image in order to select it and keep the shape the same. Keep going back to it, select it, then make new layers and play with gradients/colors/blend modes, etc. 

 

I began with making only One Apple and then followed the tomatoes steps, using the PDN Tools that best match the tutorial.

i.e. where it says, "click quick mask", use the magic wand to select the fruit (on Global) then make a new layer and then use BotBait's Outline Selection.

When you have finished the fruit to your liking, flatten and save, then go back and Un-Do the flatten and play with the Color – Flip colors – on various layers until you get another color you like.  Flatten – Save – Un-flatten again and continue changing colors again for another fruit.  I drew the stalk separately and shaded it accordingly.

Hope this is of help :).
