Pomegranate illustration

Pomegranate illustration - student project

Project description

This is one of my first completed digital illustrations in Photoshop. I had some tries before, but pomegranate illustration is actually the first one that I finished.

I started from this moodboard:

Then I made a sketch. In this faze I concentrated on the shapes, since the most important thing is pomegranate's skin, which needed to be made in Photoshop.

For the more realistic feel I used this texture I created couple of months ago for another project:

After 20 minutes or so, and 6-7 layers for the skin, here is the final result:

There are more things to be polished here, but at the moment I'm quite satisfied with this result.

Thank you Jasmine, for this great course and willingness to share some of your skills for free!
