Ellie,

Great to see you back! Thank you for the encouragement!

Enrique,

Thanks for the explanation and the screenshots! I always find that really helpful.

Well, as painful as the comparison is (I've come nowhere close to the perfection of the original ~ even in grayscale!!! ~ here it is:



Mine looks so much better when it's not next to Caravaggio's...

Since I can no longer see this objectively, anyone's comments and criticism is most welcome.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

OMG I gave everyone a tiny head!

I just overlaid my version overtop of the original ~ and realize that I gave people pinheads ~ every single figure! LOL...the question is...do I have the stamina to fix the poor pinheads...I can only wonder...

Serves me right for not using a grid...

Good for a laugh:

If your working with PS, the liquify tool is realy helpful for fixing proportions Rebecca(you probly already knew that tho hehe). Also I like the way you did the central guy even better than the original.

@Rebecca:
It looks really great, sure, is not the same that caravaggio's, but I think no one will make an exact copy, and in ur own style is great; the only thing i look a little bit strange is the paint over the tablecloth, because it is totally linear, and ur tablecloth have some drappling, but u can fix it with a displacement map or some filters like spherize or liquify, great work over all, if u fix that, 5 stars for me

werd,

Thanks for the advice and feedback! I think my image will require major surgery, however, and for that I will need a bit of time to mourn the loss of the previous version's head sizes. Hope you'll join in on the OFDW's one day!

Hey Enrique,

Thanks for the encouragement!

That food is looking good enough to eat! I think if you punch up the highlights on the grapes, they'll really start to pop out at the viewer. Maybe the bottom edge of the basket seems a little too rounded? Apart from these minor quibbles, this is looking fantastic!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi... Enrique.... .....FANTASTIC JOB ON THE COLOR...

I don't know anything about the program that your using, but sure looks like you do...
The fruit looks great so far to me, can't wait to see the colors.
A good method for doing the highlights, is to really zing or punch them in, right at the end,
same as you would do when you paint the eyes on a human figure or any kind of living figure for that matter....really brings them to life, and gives them that nice wet sparkle, works the
same way on grapes also. I don't know if that goes with your painting method, but
thought it was worth mentioning.
Your painting is turning out to be really ...BEAUTIFUL...I had a feeling it would when I first
saw it, but was not sure, having never seen any of your work before...Quess my hunch was
corect.
Really looking forward to seeing the progress on it....

TAKE CARE
Glenn

Hi ....Rebecca..... .....Glad to see that you are finding the time to finish this piece, don't
know how you manage it all. Your painting looks great to me, aside from the small errors
that you are already aware of..head sizes ect.....live and learn...LOL!!
I really think that it is time to experiment with some subtle textures....would really look great
in this painting...but just stay away from those filters...if you can....experiment experiment
experiment....ROF AND LOL!!....Sorry, I am weak, and just could not resist that one...

TAKE CARE
Glenn

Fantastic update, Enrique! I think regarding the grapes, the only thing I might say would be to try adding a bit of black around the outer edges to really make them stand out ~ that plus making the small white specular highlight on each grape a bit brighter will bring them out a bit more. Maybe only really give emphasis to a group at the bottom or top ~

I confess I haven't worked on mine more ~ I'll try to get back to it today, and post an update soon.

Keep up the great work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
