A three Cup Kinda Problem.


Inspired by Sean McCabe's "It's quite a three pipe problem" I played around with it using coffee as my inspiration :)

-it's suppose to be a coffee bean at the bottom- but who knows WHAT people think that is :)

Sketched out version with ink on top of pencil -notice no bean ;)

image taken with iphone and brought into photoshop and cropped - notice I added the bean. (D'oh!)

This file is after I did the second lesson on how to get everything cleaned up and ready to be vectorized in illustrator ( all done in Photoshop- notice missing bean? thank you clone tool :) 

Ok so I wanted to make sure that I knew how to colour in using photoshop. I found that I had to do a little tweaking to get rid of the square of colour, even after using the ALT key on the line between the 2 layers (making the screen blend mode only present on the layer right below)  but for some reason I could still see it, so I tweaked it a little- this is what I came up with- thoughts?

Ok, so I am working cs6 which apparently doesn't have all of the tweaking possibilities that cs5 had- BUT this is where I am so far, organic vector- 

I'm enjoying this process thouroughly! 

I'm not sure how I feel about this one-

Ok, so after playing around with thar one for awhile- I got bored.  The kids at my Youth Group were putting on a variety show, and I thought I'd see what I could come up with for them- so here goes:

I really like how it looks on paper, I love the simplicity of the black and white...

But for the youth, I vectorized it and put it on some grungy circusy background- what do you think?
