thanks for the feedback everyone, really helpful
Turned out great! Maybe it could have been more effective to go with less detail on the pear to have soft shapes against a rough background, but it's well made nontheless. Even if I have to agree with ptoing on a technical level.
Lovely piece. The painterly approach works quite nicely here.
One technical thing that stands out to me is the application of antialias. You are mostly just using a single pixel of aa, which in a lot of places is not effective. The longer an line is the longer the aa should. This is esp. visible on the left side of the pitcher. If you want me to make an edit let me know.
Love the lighting on this! The stripes of warm colors on pear really sell it for me. It's been said in every comment before, but the background is also awesome.
Nice painterly vibe! Love the vivid lighting!
A masterful background.
Hell yeah, love the textures here. Background details pulling a lot of weight too
Love the textures in this, especially the background!
Beautiful still life, very painterly realized.
This is super cool.
