Exercise 39 Results: Sliced Fruit by CGCookie Exercise 39 Results: Sliced Fruit by CGCookie

The Full Sliced Fruit Exercise Results HERE.  

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)

This was certainly a juicy exercise filled with a lot of finer detailing and a closer look at how isolated highlights can really add an effect to the final product.

I used the skin and pore brush from the CGCookie Basic Brush Pack to produce the sliced fruit results. For the step by step after I create an outline of each fruit, and begin to lay down a foundation of solid colors. This helps create a value to work on top of and gives a color grounding.

  1. Outline – Begin with the overall look and shape to each sliced fruit, remembering to take your time defining the important shapes such as seeds or a separation in pulp.
  2. Solid Base - Choose a solid base color from a reference and work more neutral or even closer to a darker value to build upon.
  3. Secondary Base Colors - I wanted to showcase a secondary base color to work from since there is such a distinction in color for this subject matter.
  4. Build up Forms and Values - With a lighting direction in place, start to build up the values and this is what will begin the transition from not looking so flat but rather having some depth.
  5. Remove Outline and Refine – Once you have gotten enough form to work with, you can remove the outline layer and begin to define the detail work and clean up the areas that were previously covered from the lineart.
  6. Polish with Strong Highlights - This is the most important stage. This is when the fruit adds a sense of realism and more importantly a sense of it looking “juicy” Keep the highlights consistent with the light direction and have fun watching your fruits come alive!
