@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.

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 :).

@Pixey - Thanks! I'm a lurker by nature, silently learning and observing. I was actually poking around these forums since before then, but I had to register to ask a question. :) It wasn't until recently that I coaxed myself to take the plunge, post my pieces that all of you helped me create through tutorials and examples, and start interacting with other people.

Still finding my way around this forum, find it strange that the newest post is on the last page, normally in forums it's the other way round?

Still that aside, your egg really does have a flourish and then some !

Sorry to have confused you @Anybloodyid ............... I post a new image twice.  I add one to the first page, so that all my work stays together, then I come to the last post in the thread and add another image so that:

 

1.  It bumps the thread up to the top of the Gallery.

 

2.  It saves people a step of having to go to the last page if they want to comment.

 

Hope that makes some kind of sense and thank you @Anybloodyid for your lovely comment on my Gold Easter Egg :D.

 

Thanks a bunch too, to @ReMake and @MJW for the Reps  smileys-katzen-430881.gif

I truly missed your first page to see all your work. Every time i clicked on your notifications it took me to your last page. good thing you made the last post or I would never have seen all your wonderful artwork. Quite the collection. No wonder you do you so well getting your wins in the competitions and earning galleria promotions. Have you been using those filters designed for Photoshop with the 8bf filter plugin?
