Again seeing things wrong with it AFTER I submit... ugh. Thanks for the extra kbs, Cello :-)
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Nov 30, 2004)
This is just TERRIBLE, Anna! My tomato was WAY WAY BETTER. LMFAO! :D This is possibly the very best still life of a piece of fruit I have ever seen, actually. I love it. I need a real painting like this to hang in my kitchen or something.
Gigandas (edited Nov 30, 2004)
Definitely improving with your realism.The stem looks a bit plastic-like (can't put my finger on just why that is...sorry I can't be of help there :( ), but the tomato itself is VERY well done.You've got the core shadow, the reflected light, and texture all down.The water drops are looking nice too :).

Edit:Oh hey, you just submitted the last version before I submitted this comment, and that shadow you added in below the leaves really enhanced the stem too.I think that was the problem....good work :).
Anna (Nov 30, 2004)
:-) Thanks y'all
Axil62 (Nov 30, 2004)
That is just amazing.
sincity (Nov 30, 2004)
AWESOME! ANNA, AS ALWAYS. I want to bite it.:}
flopsymopsy (Nov 30, 2004)
That looks good enough to be an English tomato! Huge compliment, as there's no tomato on earth that smells and tastes as good as an English tomato (poo, DBA can't get me, she's over there) ... and there's no strawberry as good as an English strawberry either, can I put in an order?
davincipoppalag (Nov 30, 2004)
Stunning work Anna! This is the kind of thing I only wish I could approach..wonderful. ( need to come to the US during the late summer, and have a New Jersey Ramapo Red me..THAT is the ONLY tomato in the world.)
spiritdweller (Nov 30, 2004)
I know dats right... nice work...!
DarkCloak (Nov 30, 2004)
Mmm... That looks good enough to eat.
flopsymopsy (Dec 1, 2004)
No, Poppa, I have been to the US and eaten what passes as a tomato there but a true English tomato, picked off the vine, with a stem smelling like cat's pee ... there's no taste as good as that. The tomato that is, not the cat's pee. And proper English apples! Oh my. That overblown stuff you call fruit? Tastes like cardboard on a bad day. :) ./me ducks and hides
Anna (Dec 1, 2004)
cat's pee?!?! O_O what the...
Kloxboy (Dec 1, 2004)
That is so well done, it makes me happy. You're so good.
Xodiak (edited Dec 1, 2004)
This tomato is so fresh and real, I am trying to bite my screen... I like tomatos, they are so juicy and refreshing. I prefer when they do not put salt on them, they have such a sweet taste of their own. Great realistic drawing Anna, you and Cindy draw the best paintings... they are not just realistic, they are also so colourful and alive. Excellent drawing! >:D

safescene (edited Dec 2, 2004)

Suntan (Dec 22, 2009)
omg, Delicious! Interesting it was for tomato week....we seemed to have olive week a few months ago. We should have another week of something.
dorothyblueeyes (edited Mar 24, 2010)
Its great,but I look at the stem,and it seems like a plastic stem to me;too realistic?out of a Parker Seeds catalog?oops,someone else sees plastic stem?wierd.Well,now that you can do such "neo-realism",we dare you to try;classical,old fashioned Dutch or "15th Century Flemish painting"realism of a tomato in still life.You know,dark and light,sharpness,Dutch-type lighting,(look at all those classical still lifes).Put the golden glaze over it all,so the highlights jump out at you.You can do it,if you can do this.I personally would like to see you try that,cause youre so good.(or has she done that already?)but it's really great.
betty96 (Mar 23, 2010)
its great, its verry interesting
rhylast (Jun 2, 2012)
