The random palette made me think of how the original Coke ads seemed to have random use of colors that made it look good, so I decided to do a Coke bottle for the challenge. I'm very happy with the results. Those ice cubes were a pain in the bum.

Actually no. The bottle was referenced from this http://carpoolqueen.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/lg_coca-cola_classic_bottle.jpg

The ice was just something I added in there

Actually, that's a coincidence.

Coca-cola's done this before, and your image looks as if it was inspired by this:




I'm remember reading this 4 or 3 years back.

Maybe the title is sending you subliminal messages

 When I drank soda Coke was my drink of choice, I sometimes slip in a Coke every few or so months.  This makes me in the mood for one!

nice job I like the ice especially

Just getting rid of it altogether made it look better. Those wre a remnant of the old coloration when I was still messing witht he palette, I just overlooked them XP.

Also wanted to point out that the light orange color you're using to AA from gray to dark orange at the center of the bottle is actually having the opposite effect you want: it's highlighting the edge and making it stronger rather than blending it. It's tough with these restrictive palettes. You could use the gray to AA from the near-black color, and then dither-AA from gray to dark orange, if you even need AA at all there. The dither-AA may look even more rough than a raw edge, and there are simply no colors in this palette to AA between those two tones, as far as I can tell.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/3/2010 21:30

Oh wow, thanks a ton, Hatch.

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 5/3/2010 21:21

Nice! Good reflections. But you know you've got the colors to make this a ton smoother? Quick edit, left side only:
