Starbucks Frappuccino Contest by danielalarez Starbucks Frappuccino Contest by danielalarez
have no idea where to start. I wanted my entry to be different and impacting... So i "sketched" the cup into paper which happened to be on top of other stacks of paper. I wanted it to give it that graphic design feel of "Im looking down my desk while work on this" with doodles of other things that i like surrounding it.

I used a mixture of photo manipulation and art from scratch, believe it or not the only things manipulated in there, is the wood, headphones, and pencil. The images were found in mourguefile.com so its safe to use them.

EVERYTHING on here represents something i love, and me, because i love myself (yoga taught me that lol) The Cup is a vessel or a representation of myself overflowing with water, the paint brushes inside explaining my love for art and each brush engraved a trait I admire. Each trait giving off a different color which coiled together in the water and bloomed out of even the paper <3

The words underneath that paper were synonyms to creativity, and the font i used was \"daniela\" i thought it was fitting because it is my name. Smeared with the literature were more doodles and sketches that they show in the corner to be graffiti.

A pencil to show my weapon of choice, a coffee ring on my artwork to show my love for coffee as well ha... it keeps me up on big projects so im thankful for it. And some earbuds to represent my love for music.

LAST but not least the skyline on the background dripping down the paper... I love cities and i thought this was the best way to add it on!

Anyways this took me about 3-4 days to do... since i took so much time brainstorming on it... but thats another story. Why so long though? I didnt want to half ass... every time i felt that i wasnt content with something i had to get up and walk away from it... open it a couple more time until i would finally see the problem.

Anyways i hope everyone enjoys my entry and that some people can relate to it


EDIT : ALSO my entry in my other account was disqualified because i was four years old because i messed up 4 years ago making my account and putting the wrong date on my birthday SOOOOO i placed this here I AM IN FACT 21 YEARS OLD. thankyou.

Great job! This is really nice and I belive represents most of us here in dA... I hope getting it the next time I go buy a frapuccino haha The doodles would have also made an awesome design, but this one is much more creative and meaningful. I don't have much to say because it already says much itself, though it'd add I also feel identificated with it and that you are very skilled. All in all, stunning work! :)
