For the Glass life challenge, really happy with the bottle, really frustrated by the ice-cubes. ggrrrr!

DB32 pallette used which influenced the subject chosen, lots of greens greys and blues. Googled for well know gin brand for refs.

I left the canvas size at the max for the challenge because I like the way it looks.

Awesome job, really love how you rendered the bottle in particular. Also, good call on the whitespace. Looks classy. :)

@Skoby, thank you, onto the next challenge :)

Your ice cubes turned out well in the end, personally I think I'm going to have a breakdown next time I'm asked if I want ice in a drink! I would suggest the black line on the label could use stronger AA, but otherwise I love it.

Thanks Whisper.

Give me one! Ahah, good job :)

@Drazile, I did add texture and segments to the limes but it came off as rather messy or looked like some lemon/lime (Brazil supporting) hybrid.

@King Boston, Yep that stray pixel is much like a Turkish carpet, I have to put a flaw in the work so I don't produce a God like flawless piece....but as there are plenty of other it shouldn't be there. :p

The limes are rather smooth.

I also think that the white background make this look like an advertisement. I like it! Does the one stray pixel on the right of the glass belong there?

Thanks for spotting my omission.

In the future when entering a challenge don't forget to check the challenge option when submitting because we don't always catch entries. I got you this time ;)

What you said makes complete sense. :) The label is distorted by the glass and liquid, refraction I guess. like seeing a stick in the water appear to bend. As for the white background, after working on pink whilst creating it, it just seems to stand out a bit more and makes it look more like a glossy magazine advert.

Very nice. A tiny thing that I noticed is that the label on the other side of the bottle does not make any sense at the current perspective that it is at. It should be at this angle instead of it going up, it messes up the perspective imho (could be wrong though). Not sure if what I said makes any sense or not :S

I'm not digging the white background, but that's more of a personal thing. Very nice work on the bottle itself though.
