Art 28: Coffee Illustration by 0dd10ut Art 28: Coffee Illustration by 0dd10ut
Download for the details in the graphite!

This is my final illustration for Art 28. I say final, but it's really a midterm. We were given a word and then we had to illustrate it. I got "espresso machine".

Espresso machine >>> Steam wand >>> Espresso Fairy.

Since I got the word "espresso machine", I decided to try something new and paint it in coffee. It was fun.

I stayed up one whole night for the lines (slowpoke), and another for redrawing the lines and transferring it, then painting it in coffee. I'm a bit upset cause when I got it back, it was smudged by the guy's face.

This is so. cool. Not only is it painted, but in coffee. Was it harder to use than normal watercolor?

I really love that fairy, too. She's like "Bitch take your coffee."

Coffee was my first wet medium so I didn't have any past experience to compare it to. Thanks. Tried to make her as pissed as possible.

It looks as though lack sleep and an abundance of caffiene havewarped his morals.

I just love that it's painted with coffee. So amusing.

Thanks. It was a spur of the moment. I was gonna do markers but when the teacher asked me, my brain was like "Hey! Wouldn't it be cool if this was in coffee?!"

heh, is almost like the green fairy from absynthe XDD but coffee i'm sure is nicer than alcoholic beverages...well, not in this case. That guy seems like an addict D: making her work all day long

Espresso Fairy?! Fabulous!! 8D;;
But i feel bad for her, seeing her tied to the chair like that. And I thought my job sucked...

But this is awesome, I love it! And's really creative. Not only did you take an ordinary word and got creative with it, you went out of your comfort zone and experiment with a different media, aka coffee. That's epic to me, that's what art is all about! And you pulled it off beautifully~

And don't worry about the graphite lines too much. They don't take away from the image, at least I don't think so. If they were thicker and darker it would have but it's not. And it sucks that the teacher smudge it in places. You might not be able to do much with the original image, but digitally you might be able to select that area (With the magic wand, in Photoshop) and lighten the contrast.

But yeah, loves!! :+fav:
