Magic Potions Tutorial

Tutorial time as I work on my next animation.  If you want an easy way to make potions and elixirs, this tutorial uses only a round brush (no special tools required) and a digital art program with some sort of glow layerstate, whether its luminosity (SAI), linear dodge (PS), or just a screen mode.  I hope you all find this helpful!

Please do not repost. Its been happening a bunch with my tutorials lately.

Thank you for this tutorial) I have chosen this for my first illustration in Procreate ) I have never painted realistic objects before and it took several hours.

Hmm, I might take some tips from this and try to see what I can do in Illustrator. Might be a very liberal approach to this tutorial though.

question, which is the order of the layers? putting the bottle ones at the bottom make them invisible when the water and such is added, second can i ask how you do the water?
