Urghh wow I hoped to get more done today but I spent most of it working on this. After several failed attempts and pretty much starting completely from scratch on this again I've finally got an update. I hope people like this and think its better then the last one. With the last one, the next day I pretty much regretted posting it as it really doesn't look that great. Maybe I'll have the same attitude towards this but I think it's at least an improvement. I started looking at after artists work and looking at digital painting tutorials. This isn't completed, still need to do the bg and the coaster. (I also used more layers with this one so I hopefully wont have to restart from scratch, The reflections are all on separate layers, I'm not too fond of them so I might change them later, and the edges are a bit raggedy so I'll probs smooth them out).
This is still a learning process but hopefully I'll get to an acceptable standard.
