Love Song Mugs

Love Song Mugs - student project

After lots of brainstorming, I came up empty on ideas for my Procreate project. In the end (and since it is Valentine's Day), I settled for some shelves of coffee mugs with familiar love song lyrics.

As you'll see in the process video, first I sketched my mugs and the shelves, and then I went back and colored them individually, while finally adding hand lettering. I was really happy with my color palette as I was working (a monochromatic one, incorporating pinks and reds), but the final product isn't as expressive and interesting as I hoped.

Thanks for putting together such a great class, Brooke! I loved all your examples, and it took everything in my power not to do something incorporating Star Wars-like lettering after seeing your slicing and skewing tips!
