I bought this cool coffee cup a few days ago and I’ve been desiring to paint it. For humor I stuck my cheep elephant toy in the cup (just in case you wondering what that thing is, it looks as abstract in real life as it does in the cup). I had some issues with the small cast shadow coming down from the cup to the sphere. I think my next still life will feature more spheres. I painted this from scratch in Adobe Photoshop with a wacom tablet. Time spent on painting a little under 1 hour and 30 mins.
Note to self: there is a small mistake in the handle that needs to be fixed.
