Tea -- Drawing Process

Process of drawing Tea:

I started out by lining the general shape of the pot and slowly "bricked" in the various colors seen on its surface. The picture above is a result of the bulk of the work done on the teapot.  

Teapot complete with lid.

Some blending was done on the teapot, and I moved on to working on the cups.

First teacup after bricking with color.

Colors of the teacup are being blended; dish is being drawn in.

After finishing up the second cup, I added a background and voila! 

The result:
