Two martinis with olives. Created in a vector format using a photo taken under reflecting neon lights. T-shirt version available.

I used PhotoShop to trace this image and edit out complex areas, then I used Illustrator to autotrace the complex patterns in the glass, but that left me with a huge file size; I returned to PS to rasterize the AI image at 300 ppi and to color the background, foreground, and the highlight; then I took the image back to Illustrator to again auto trace the image to get a complicated vector with a reasonable file size. Vectors are cool because they can be blown up to any size without losing resolution— there’s no pixelization in a vector.

    I like this

  • Thank you, Cubanacan! I used hand-held neon tubes to make the reflections for a photo, then created an illustration from the photo with bolder colors and a more off-centered composition. Of course, the shoot wouldn’t have been the same if we weren’t sampling the martinis Ç;-)

    Fantastic piece of work.

  • Thank you for your appreciation! Started out as experimental photography. When I wasn’t satisfied, it became an experimental illustration.

    Well done Bob. Love the rich orange colour here and the light on the rims of the martini glasses. This would be a great entry into the Shadow Dancing challenge. Hope to see it there! Cheers, S.

  • Thank you or looking and leaving a comment! Appreciate the suggestion. Enjoyed the visit to your (mine now) group. The vibe is nice and the presentation is well done! See you some more.
