Daily Painting No.53 – Coffe Cup and Ball (Still Life)

still life coffecup sphere ball

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.

Daily Painting No.38 Elephant and Bowl

elephant still life bowl digital paint

Time for more still life practice. I found this cheap $1 elephant children’s toy at a dollar store. I set it on top of my bowl and the rest is history. Feel free to comment or critique me. Self critique: I spent most of the time on the elephant and it is much more defined then the bowl. I am very pleased with the elephant. some artifacts left from erasing need to be removed. Bowl needs more refinement. Time spent 1 hour 45 minutes. Painted in photoshop.
