YEEEAAAAH FOREST by TheNicestKeen YEEEAAAAH FOREST by TheNicestKeen
For the Starbucks contest.


My cup is about having a good time inside of nature with FRIENDS and ANIMALS.

It's really cool for me when I see animals like deers and rabbits and stuff because I don't see them often.

Sitting in the sunlight feels better in the grass than it does when you're on the asphalt.

Slowly developing an obsession with the trees...

But since I spend most of my time in places of the city-like variety, the foreign bacteria from the wild almost always makes me sick afterwards. Still worth it.

Tried to make the characters look energetic and goofy. I don't think I am used to drawing in this style, though.

If I were the judge, I would take in to consideration the amount of time taken, how original it is, how happy it is, and you score high in all my three categories =) I really like that you used many shades of browns, greens and yellows. My favorite part is the heart. Gosh I can't believe it didn't make it.

I REALLY like this entry. I saw it awhile back when I was browsing through the entries and I was sure it would be a semi-finalist. I'm disappointed because I love everything about it. I love the color scheme you chose and the wooden texture on the cup. Its awesome.

Even if you're not used to it, it turned out great! It's so cute and fun and lol at your title xD The colors match the style very well I think; it's mellow, but still happy, with a touch of funk(?) I :heart: the trees btw x3

u used Illustrator? or use wacom tablet? how long does it take to finish? -sorry, noob here :p

TheNicestKeen Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011
It's no problem. :)

I used a wacom tablet, Illustrator and Photoshop in order to draw this. I sketched the image and basic color scheme in PS and then imported it into Illustrator where I used a pressure sensitive brush to basically draw out all the lines. After that, I converted the brush paths to shapes so that I could tweak the line art.

When I was finished doing the line art, I put it back into photoshop where I colored it.

I'm not really sure how long it took me to finish as a total amount of time. I was sort of working on it on and off.

hey did you draw directly into the cup or did you have to modify the file size so its easier to manage? i noticed the file size for the template is HUGE and was wondering if i could shrink it down to manage.

TheNicestKeen Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
If that's what works for you, go for the gold. I didn't have to modify the size personally, since my computer is kind of fast, but from what I read of the rules and from what I'm seeing of the other submissions, it seems like it'd be fine for you to change it to whatever size you need it to be.
