first semi serious sketch

got cs3 and a neat sketching book, been playing around with mapping objects out on paper and layin down some shadows/highlights.

this took about an hour, still learning the stuff. could be a coffee cup or spaceship or anything really…

comments are loveable

Looks pretty nice to me, especially 'cos you kept the lines that extend beyond the space-cup as well as the “helping guides” (if I can call them that??). I keeps that cool sketch look intact

Although I would prefer to clean up the sadows (the grey) so it stayed within the lines - for me it sort of breaks the illusion of a 3D object when one can see the entire brushstroke from photoshop. Also the solid black background is a bit too heavy for my taste…
