Thats actually ace Karl - I know you said you'd never drawn before, and if thats the case thats really top notch work. How long did it take?
Ah, cheers, I'm pleased with it for a first go, I can spot some stuff wrong with it though. Might do a banana or an onion or something before I try and move on to big-boy art. The apple took me more or less all evening, about five hours maybe.
It really is good Karl. Assuming you used Photoshop, how did you get that smudged effect where the reds and green roll into each other? It's like a chalk/pastel effect. It's looks ace. I wanna know the ins and outs of drawing in Photoshop before I try something proper. I drew the below Joker when I first got my tablet about 3 years ago but it was using a different program. I can't remember what it was called, otherwise I'd re-download it right now, but it was amazing. It was just like using real paint, like you could use watercolours that would run and dry as if it was real. And you could proper blob on acrylics and stuff. It was awesome!
