Make It Yours by mmiller8 Make It Yours by mmiller8
I took my sketch of a pop can ([link]) and colored it in Photoshop. In all, this took me about six hours (including the sketch).



**UPDATED SEPTEMBER 2, 2004**

My good friend ~DrTall has bought me a prints accout. That money came directly from his Awesomeness, so go :worship: him!!! And buy prints. They're the reason I flipped out and reworked this. :P

Given 2003-06-09
I had a record number of suggestions(2!) to feature this piece, and with such oppresive public pressure, I am in no position to oppose! Thus, Make It Yours by mmiller8 is today's feature, as selected by you, the public! It's a very well drawn piece, demonstrating a considerable amount of skill and patience. Good stuff, lets keep the submissions coming! (Selected by +ekud) ( Featured by ekud )

I really like pie... but I like this picture even more! Totally deserved Daily-Dev. And hey, if you get paranoid with all this fame and appreciation and wonder whether people like me would've noticed this if it hadn't been posted as a DD... well, we probably wouldn't have. I missed it in the thumbnails section, anyway... But you art does rule, and unless anyone said anything mean or pointlessly critical above... I repeat all of the above. Keep on truckin'. Whatever the hell that means. This is a fantastic bit of art.

It seems people here have no idea how you're supposed to critique a piece. Anyways, its a nice rendering but I noticed there are some areas where the pencil crayon is much too glossy... so you lost the tooth in the paper, at least that's what it looks like. Good job though, pencil crayon renderings are really tough, and I admire anyone with the skill to do a good one.

the thumbnail is very convincing, as you get to full view you see the pencil strokes but still looking great, very nice coloring!
