Feeling nostalgic and looking for a quick still-life to keep my skills in check, I turned to my childhood for inspiration. My goal was to achieve realism while being accurate to the source content. The label art was hand painted in Photoshop from photo reference only, (no scan data was used.) It was surprisingly fun and refreshing to get back into Photoshop again, and just paint. Matching fonts and colors was a fun challenge, as well as the unexpected difficulty of creating the carpet. This was a fun break from the usual pieces I do, and it reminded me that you always learn something new from every piece you make.
