Yesterday i finished a mug of beer )
I wanted to make a detailed tutorial, but actually in the beggining i had no idea where to start with :) this also took 2h so it’s quite complicated to make as tutorial, because many moments are simple “painted” with brush, but i hope you will understand all my steps i used in this video. If any questions regarding the process of making this icon, please ask! :) chin-chin

grvtn-deactivated20120116 asked: Hi, Your works was fantastic and cool. Can I ask you, are you using burn tools to make the color look more realistic? in your speedpainting, there is a part you make the "Globe's" color look have something shading. Can you share that little secret for me? :D Cheers!!

Hi, thank you for your comments! No, currently i use burning tool very rarely, because in most times it can complitely kill the color. In the globe video i used just big soft white brush with screen layer mode. The darker “blue” of the globe made with just darker blue color and big soft brush, then i made some Gaussian Blur so it was more smooth. Thanks
