Coffee Time Revisited

Time to reveal the project I'd been talking about like 2 months back - there's no rushing when it comes to me and this kind of project and I hope you'll be able to see it.

This is the January picture for the new calendar :boogie:
There will be completely new pictures in it as well as some of my recent faves that go well with the textured theme :aww: The Calendar itself will be uploaded after Sept. 1st, because that is when dA switches to the dates for the next year.

For all you nostalgic people: the old calender will be updated at the beginning of September to fit the new dates, too.

On the piece:
I've always loved Coffee Time, but to be honest, it wasn't exactly my best image on a technical level. Don't get me wrong, I'm still proud of the original seen as I did it over 2 years ago with a lot less skills than I have today. The pic itself just doesn't cut it for a 2009 Calendar. I could think of nothing more fitting for my birth month than a depiction of coffee though, so I remade it - with coffee beans from the same shoot as the original ones btw :giggle:

The pictures of your calendar are very very good.
Can you tell us, how did you create the white flow (rain)? (not the shape above the cup)
Was it with a picture with a layer mode difference?
Thanks in advance.

it's a texture with a different layer mode :)

Hi there. I love this image. Would you mind if I used it as part of a blog banner? I'm setting up a new blog now, and this would go perfectly with the idea I have in mind. Let me know please. Thankks :D

yes, I would mind. My art is not for use without paying a license fee.

How much would that be? I'm not using the original image. I've heavily edited it, resized it, added a bit more. I'm not sure how it works when you do that.
kuschelirmel's avatar
heavily edited is a complete no-go
and I do not talk shop in comments.

It makes me wanna drink coffee...
I'm guessing that January has coffee because most of us when we wake up to a new day we tend to drink coffee.So it's like waking up to a new day of a new year...

Hihi "I could think of nothing more fitting for my birth month than a depiction of coffee"
Der könnte von mir stammen, ich bin so verdammt kaffe addicted aber geb mir alle paar wochen wieder ein paar tage mühe davon abzulassen. :)

Tolles Bild übrigens. Mag vor allem die warmen farben und den "duft", weckt irgendwie grad wieder kaffe-trink laune. :)

Ohh das spricht mir doch mal aus der Seele. :XD:
