Thanks to ppdigital from Morguefile, for the pic of the concrete texture, used as my background.

The rest is PS and lots of patience.

UPDATE: I had to go for the realistic leaves...sorry Mossy. Background, desaturated. (5 years and 1030 days ago)

Peaches are very well made, and realistic looking. Can't say the same for the leaves. I'd suggest modeling them after a realistic leaf to keep your image consistent. GL author.

CMYK: Thanks, I have to go out to the yard and look at a real leaf of a peach tree we have. I did this just thinking of a peach, and leaves, kind of hard to do this by heart. No reference used. Good idea!

Noooooooo!!!!
The surreal leaves are my favorite part after the beautiful shading on the peaches.
The background is a bit too intense for my taste, I'd soften it by decreasing the contrast very, very slightly, but leave the leaves be!

author says:

Thanks MossyB: I just finished drawing more natural leaves, and look nice, but I will wait. I think you are right. Will soften the backgroud.... maybe desaturating it...a little?

Author.. if you put a gaussian disk in faded black underneath the bowl and burn it's bottom edge it will help with grounding the bowl .. another disk under the isolated fruit will help as well (IMHO), Overall, FANTASTIC image! Good luck

author says:

STEP 19....Shows my first final image. The leaves were changed to the ones I have in my final now. So, you'll get an idea of what the image looked before.

Mossy, I am sorry I had to go with the realistic look leaves. The image looks better, I think, thank you for suggesting about background, it is desaturated now.

CMYK: You got it! Leaves look nice. Driven, the basket / peach are grounded now.

Erathion: thanks.:-
