Thank you guys for your help! I really neglected drawing too much. I will start drawing again and post my drawings as well. That will probably help with construction and other things I have problems with.
Fedodika: I am painting digitally because I think I can learn faster there, but in the future I will also paint traditionally. I think especially watercolor looks very interesting.

i mean nothing wrong with painting digitally, it just can train a lot of bad habits i personally am working on removing. see with real paintings, you could replicate this in digital, you cant really move things around much, and you have to mix all the colors and intimately understand color temperatures and values. you could do this in digital if you mixed on the computer, and didnt use the lasso tool but more scrubbed over something with paing and repainted it next to it.

But again in real life, that extra paint makes getting a good stroke more difficult because clumps up or gets too thin, etc. So you know, drawing well with pencil will carry you very far when it comes to painting because youre getting good proportions in and nailing them. id say 90% of the appeal in art is just proportions mapped accurately with good design and line weight. The rest is just technique, try drawing much longer than touching paints, theres a lot of anatomy and form to learn in drawing, painting will slow it down. then when you do paint, go for gouache or oils, gouache teaches tiling and is cheap, and oil is forgiving and teaches patience so ya, thats my input

Hello again. I tried to finish my still life, but it looked weird all the time, so I decided to take a new photo and paint another still life instead. I think both the reference and the painting look a lot better. In addition the colours are saturated and it doesn't look as digital as my older paintings, because I didn't zoom in too often. I also tried to make it less smooth. I think I could have done better with edges, contrast and colour, but I didn't want to spend too much time on it. As promised I will start drawaing traditionally now for my next post.

Welcome,that some serious rendering skill you got there except maybe that kiwi that look to have been rendered almost like the apple and the cast shadow of that kiwi where it become soft around the edge it also missing some of that brightness and saturation i feel.I also feel like the red of that strawberry don't match the reference specially in the darker part.Finally there a small brush stroke in that milk texture that should be soften on the right side and i feel there more of a yellowish tint in that milk shadow side and there a small line of value change between your milk light side and dark side that is missing.

I mean you rendering skill is above mine clearly and it kind feel rude of me to critic someone above me in those area but i think it still relevant for me to share my observation to give a second eye on all this.

Your proportion are so good it almost make me go he trace the damn thing over the original.

nice work, i think the metallic object on the left is skewed a little, but its overall pretty solid
