This is a watermelon (cut in half) and it is wonderful.

I updated the image to create a new light-source.

i like the shade

 Cool. I really like that shading style; not very realistic probably but it's really unique.

Nice one, Darth.

I LOVE your dithering style, very original and really makes this piece jump out at you.  Great job.  5/5

Now I want a watermelon to eat.

Nice work! I've never seen a dithering style quite like that before. Love it!

Thanks for the comments!

I thought I might do and edit/update to this (if that's allowed?) tonight to add a more consistent light source!

great colour blending skill

Yeah, I absolutely love the dithering on this. It's got a great style to it.

I do think it could better mimic a still life though. And what I mean by that is just having a consistent light source. The reaction it has to light would be my only problem with it, so it seems more like just PA than it does a PA still life.

But I just have to say that I think the dithering really makes that problem less of an issue.

The lines look really weird on the watermelon. I like the different shapes as the dithering.
