This is my first project in Skillshare. I have been wanting to try out digital painting for a while to improve on value and learn how to digitally paint backgrounds. I did have a little bit of an issue when trying to blur the filled ellipse. The edges were very harsh, so I ended up blurring the edges. It might have been from having the ellipse selected at the time of applying the filters.
Taking those first few stokes on the apple was very intimidating, as I felt I had no clue what I was doing! Overall, I had a lot of fun attempting this project. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
