Hi my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to draw glass fruits in Photoshop. So make sure you add a layer. Alright, so I'm going to go ahead and draw that lemon. I'll make it smaller this time. Alright, and you're going to want it to look, okay so with that I'm going to just hold down option and I'm going to just drag it and I'm going to do a color overlay. And you don't have to do this. This is just a quick tip if you are making the same shape and just wanting to change the color. So I'm going to use the lime green. Okay so now we've got our lemon and our lime and I'm just going to flip it. Okay so right now they don't really look like much so what I'm actually going to do is I'm going to make the opacity different. I'm going to change it so I'm going to select multiply and I'm going to go to the layer that I have, click it, go up to this little bar here and just select multiply and this is going to make it so that my fruit is now see through. And this is the one that's on top even though it kind of looks, you can't really tell which is in front which is actually really a good thing. So now I'm going to go ahead and draw the bright spot and if you want to you an add another layer if you want to be more of a painter, you can just paint right on top but I'm just going to go ahead and add another layer because I don't really like to jeopardize the quality of my drawing. So just draw some light based on the shape of your object and I'm looking at my glass orb over there and realizing that they are very similar in shape. So it would really help if you had a reference but using a lighter, don't use white right away because if you look at something that's reflecting light that's glass, it doesn't always have just a white light. You are going to need to add some more dodge color in there. That's alright, you're going to have to dodge it a little bit to make it a little brighter but I'm going to do that right now. Go back to your burn tool and hold it down and select the dodge tool and that's when you can kind of start playing around with this right here. You can even do it to your lemon as well if you want to. So right now it just kind of looks like a lemon painting but that's okay because we kind of, alright, so now I'm just going to go ahead and add a little bit of white just to make it a little shiny. And then use the smudge tool, smudge it a little. Alright, so there's your glass lemon, oops, and then make sure you merge this down so that it's one shape. Then you can drag your line back there and then honestly you can probably do the exact same thing or you could just like copy it if you wanted to but you're just going to, you're going to do exactly what you did to that to this. You're going to burn it on the edges. And I really burnt that last lemon so I'm going to try and burn this a little less just so that it's a little bit more realistic glass looking. And I'm just going to, this one actually I'm not even going to dodge it. I'm just going to, okay, so I'm going to blur that a little bit. Clean that up a little bit on the edges and then I'm going to go back in with my white and just add an extra layer on top. Then if you feel like adding just some extra shine, this one is actually, this is in the front so I'm going to make sure that this is kind of right here. And there you've got your glass fruit. My name is Alex and this is how you draw glass fruit in Photoshop. Thank you.
