hmmm... I'm surprised too... you know, coming back in after a few hours and looking at it again with a fresher eye. It really does kind of look like olive oil in the bottle. Dang. It turned out pretty good. (00)

The marker pens you see in the photo is what I used. On the pen it has "Fibracolor". (They're like firm fiber pens of color. I've had them a long time.) They don't blend, but there are so many shades of color...that helps. (I'm thinking like how 'paint-by-numbers' work) I got the pens at Fred Meyers (aka Krogers).

I'm not real crazy about the shadow, though.

I can't believe you did this with pens!!! It's really good and you got the olive oil and glass and reflections great...with pens!!!?

had to come back and say, what is great about this pic, is in that top photo it looks like the bottle is upright and standing on the table.

Thx everyone.

Sandy... in the top photo I put the fiber pens and actual olive oil bottle in it to show what I used. The only thing left to explain is that I used card stock paper. Smooth but a little heavier than regular drawing paper.

Yeah..but it is your drawing that looks like it is popping right up out of the picture...like really sitting there. Good good job.
