I am massively proud of this icon, I created it mainly as practise, as I have not been able to paint for a while due to all of the designing I have been doing recently, so I needed to see for myself if I could still paint. I have seen a lot of beautiful iOS inspired app icons on places like Dribbble and thought it would be a good challenge to see if I could make an icon to that standard.
The donought have been painted from scratch with my Wacom graphics tablet, building up layers of brush strokes to build up the tones and textures needed to make the donought look as realistic as possible. I actually sat with a box of Krispy Kreme donoughts in front of me at one point as a resource and just painted it. The box is built up of a mixture of brush strokes and vector shapes. Overall this icon took around 4-5 hours to create which isn’t too bad considering some of my oil paintings can take around 7 months to complete.
Overall I am very pleased with the results and hopefully will add more iOS icons to the collection in the future.
