So here's the finished piece.
I have a small desk in my basement in front of an unfinished wall with the studs exposed, I set the objects on one of the studs in front of me and a lamp to the left for shadows. Behind that in drywall so I faked the wood background.
The small marble is one I have the other I faked, no 2 are identical so who would know.
The chess piece and pencil were actually set up but I made up the key. Whats really nice about the ipad is that you can set up a dark area with a small light for shadows and not need an additional light over your work area that would wash out the shadows.
Of course this great app makes it all possible with layers and the different brushes and settings.
This wold of taken me weeks with traditional oils.
Thants to this app i've found a new passion for my art and thanks to you guys, I've found some new friends as well.
Questions or comments good or bad please.
