Deep Red Strawberry Cheesecake by VintageWarmth Deep Red Strawberry Cheesecake by VintageWarmth
Just trying to occupy myself due to boredomness in weekend. :D. Yet I was working as food illustrator.

Adobe PS CS5 & Illustrator (Mixed media)
original file size: 327.2 MB
no. of layers: about 100 +
Brushes used: sea sponge, airbrush, graining, scattered dust (for dusting sugar on top) etc..
Credits / photo reference: none
no. of working hours: about 6 hours but on & off.

I just wanting to do a still life/food and drink illustration for experiment to recharge some creative juices due to artist's block.
I am not quiet sure the texture of the cream cheese filling. I am little bit concerned that it might look like a chalk or white concrete. I use to apply some little bubbles on cheesecake so that it wont look like just painted solid wood or too stiff. I do think the final result went pretty good. Im quite happy about the table cloth & fruit pieces & fruit bits.

As you can see the little white dust onto syrup & sliced strawberry preserves, It's actually a powdered sugar for garnishing. Though I am not good with pastry decorating. I am not sure the elements. I do hope It's not too much rich or dense. And I hope the syrup doesn't reminds you of dripping blood.

On the other side of my note, i think its style seems to be "Sarah Lee" gourmet theme.

Any critiques are warm welcome. greatly appreciated :)

Next illustration project: "Deviantart / DArama" Sugar Cookies (with different smileys on frosting with different flavors) coming soon.

Thanks everyone for your warm comments in advance. I'll get back to you soon. :)

Hey Erika,

First of all, i think it's a really nice piece that really fits the rest of your food series! Great job on all the elements, i like how everything is textured and how all is build up. :)

But since this is a critique i'll guess i have to say what could be a bit better (to me that is) :D Maybe some more crumbs like you did with the cookies would be nice, or some cream on the bottom to make it look more crunchy. Also, the lighting is nice but the shadows on the bottom of the strawberry's and the cake should be darker, that way it will look less like it's floating a bit so it looks more natural.

All in all still a great piece, amazing painting skills.

Have a nice day!

Well, first of all. The title really fit on this. looks delicious and yummy as it looks. you just made me drool to death. specially the cake! now i just realize that "THE CAKE IS NOT A LIE" but in my opinion. The strawberry is a little bit underexposed and not perfectly in focus. but I really like the composition and the idea behind it. from texture to colors and the contrast of the red strawberry really amused me to give critique on this. Great photo and and exposure. excellent job on this. keep up the good work! next food plz!
