School assignment for Digital Painting class. I am a noob in digital painting, so I spent two days on doing this. Most of the time is spent on experimenting.

We are supposed to paint different materials on spheres to study texture, lighting, and forms. The lecturer gave us examples but she allowed us to pick other materials too. I know I could refine this more, but I have other assignments to do… /excuses

Anyway I was supposed to do only 9, but I ended up doing 12. Can you tell what each sphere is supposed to be? :)

My favorites are the pink crystals and the yellow marble. The glowing shadows seem really important. It wouldn't be right to give an opaque black shadow to a marble, for instance. I should try something like this. My medium is colored pencils though, so I've have to use different techniques then you did, but I imagine the concept would be the same.

I LOLed at 12, that's some gruesome stuff you have goin :p Skin seems a biiit too reflective though, in that lighting setup, I think it would work better with a more diffused surface. Otherwise, I think this is a fun and extremely useful exercise- really something I wished I did for myself when I was still school. Please keep it up! Foundation training and proper understanding of theory, i.e how we perceive things in human terms, is the single most important thing in your future growth as a visual artist. Nothing is worse than thinking you 'really know the basics', only to realise its all built over loose 'foundation', or worse, incorrect understanding of how things work.

Haha! The lecturer winced when I show her that. But I did not have a choice, without the wound, it looked like an egg... :P
Yeah, It was a really fun and useful exercise, especially for beginners. Actually I am still doing this practice after the submission.
Thanks for your feedback, Kai! I will keep on learning and practicing.

Yeah, if you want a challenge/proper training try not to 'cheat' in future :p If it was painted right, even without blood, it should still look like skin. Yes, even if its a ball of skin. haha

A n00b? This is better than I'll ever be... TT__TT

Thank you! It took me long to experiment with the brush settings (like the opacity, pen pressure, and all that), that is why I said I'm a n00b. :)

Please keep on practicing! I am still learning too, we all can improve! ^_^

Oh no... 1 is supposed to be coloured glass sphere... 2 is just a marble sphere. 3 is iron. Then 6 is just a crystal. :)
4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 are correct, though! :D
