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

I am in awe of your ability to draw and make good-looking things and am genuinely envious of that, but this is just unknowing shadow advertisement. Use your talent and make something better, more belonging to you.

Incredible. I thought the thumbnail was a photogrpah and it was pretty cool. I mean, wow. You captured even the metal-ness (I'm sure there's a proper word for that) of a can. AND you colored it without losing the sketch!

I'm really impressed. +fav

Fantastic, I really have to say. You did a really great job! It seems to me though that the blackness under the number 7 on the sketch seemed to look a bit unnatural, maybe I just can't see straight today. Anyway, wonderful job.

Woah! This is amazing - only one critisism though and that is it's a shame that there is so little space around the can - I feel that the frame is too close to the outline of the can and doesn't let it be as awesome as it could be on it's own. It's a fantastic piece with so much detail and depth. Well done on the hugely deserved DD!

whaoo amazing colors and shadows, the shiny parts, it looks so real and the noise around it, great. not sure about the shadow though. and i dont get it, arent you suppose to ask 7up for posting their logo on ur paint or something? dunno deviantart's staff seem to have a selective eye on things, when they look 4 u they will rip all ur deviations and when they love the work, ah, its ok!

thats if u should have said its a 7up can and posted a link.

part of that the job is great, i would have +Fav it but i have really high standarts for my +fav :D (Big Grin) sorry.. its still really amazing and the hours u put into it, great to see artists with such patience
