The painting of the candle banana and apple helped me a lot. I actually wasn't very confident in my abilities with digital painting, but I figured out a lot by trying to accomplish this task. With this being said my artist eyes will be up shortly now that I feel like I am not going to totally disrespect the original artists.
I also attempted the five eyes, but dang, those things are really tough. I'm gonna keep at them and hopefully have them up asap.
