Need some Serious Tips/help to create a design

Lari81 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013
Hey Guys,

Im currently working on piece for a friend of mine and i am kinda stuck and cant figure out how to make it better. I have never done something realistic before, my main thang is bit more cartooney and stuff. Im looking for some advice/tip/help on how to make my work better.

I got this pic of a chilly, and I am trying to make it look like its part ruby and part emerald.I have worked on it so far and can only seem to achieve this much. I wanna try and make it look a bit more realistic. Anyone got some advice for me here??

This is what I have been finally able to make and the original red chilly that I had used for inspiration

I'd appreciate any help or advice i can get on this.

i have been using Photoshop CS2 by the way.

That's the best resource I know on gemstones...
From what I can see of yours it's still too opaque to appear like a jewel
