Not sure why but I felt like doing a still life mini painting this time. Just trying to flex different art muscles I guess.

Grabbing a bottle of Soju I had in my fridge, I quickly sketched out the neck of the bottle and then attacked it with the digital paints. Having the subject right in front of me turned it into an exercise in observation and color selection which was neat. I think the look of the glass in the light turned out pretty good.

The Dodge Tool in Photoshop helped give extra punch to the highlights on the bottle. I gave the bottom of the piece some Gaussian Blurring to help keep focus on the neck and cap. That blur gives it a neat macro photo kind of look.

Total time involved was about 30-40 minutes.
