Before anyone gets too confused this is 100% painted. More still life practice, trying to get back to my roots and remember how to paint/draw in a realistic fashion. No tracing was involved.
I'm kind of surprised that the sketch on the paper took more effort than the rest of this image, phh. I think the worst of it was the ellipses from the cup, though. Fuck that cup, even if its contents were absolutely delicious.
Photoshop cs4 on a cintiq tablet.

Amazing job~! Love the lighting, perspective, and concept- and the way the sketch within the painting seems to blossom from the pencil is fantastic and mysterious~ <3 Overall, this is extremely well done and looks very, very realistic *u* <333

Great piece of work - very natural, I don't like the way the pencil tip is touching the point of the sketch though, some reason that bugs me :-)

But that is just my personal opinion, I'd hang this one on the wall for sure.

This is so beautiful, unlike most digital art I see. It's fantastically realistic. I had to make a new folder in my favorites just for this because I see this kind of digital quality so infrequently. Thank you :hug:

It's funny, because I was actually very curious about the one-eyed octopus tree, but when I saw it from close, I realized that the entire thing was a painting. This is great. It just made me so curious and then surprised. Simply great.
