Cut Avocado

Cut Avocado - student project

This started as a little practice sketch/study, and I was inspired to render it in a more realistic way after watching the videos from this class. The objects (especially the avocado pit, the knife and the cutting board) really lent themselves to some of the tips and techniques that were presented.

Original Sketch (above) 

 

Sketch, with basic shapes and colours. Starting to use the blend tool for colour transitions.

 

Applying some dimensionality, using the mesh tool and blurred shapes. Clipping masks are applied to the avocado pit and the knife to layer textures and effects.
