Nectar of The Gods - student project

For my project I've decided to reproduce this coffee illustration. My skill level is very beginner, and I didn't want to take on anything to intricate, however there are some small details to this image that I think will help me develop my skills.

I got through section 1 on Form Building. I spent a long time playing around with all the different curves.   Initially I used the pen tool to create my forms, but then after watching the next vide I went back and tried some of the techniques using the elipse tool. The "cresent moon" example came in handy with the saucer, and coffee in the mug.
