A Spot of T ... rather Coffee instead!

I had my usual healthy oatmeal breakfast and then some coffee this morning. Remembering it is Tuesday, I was going to share my coffee mug over at Elizabeth's T(ea) for Tuesday! But one look at it and decided against it. Why? Cause it's a plain white mug ... no ... no white mug. Since I have my old Painter program opened, I decided to have a pink mug instead. I know it's kind of a silly little cup.
I was looking through my brushes in the Painter program and realized that Painter is now up to 13 (Painter X3) and I have 10 (Painter X). Since mine is a few versions behind, I could not do an upgrade. Can't justify buying a full version right now ($399 Ouch!). Actually can't justify upgrading ($199) either.

Well since I am posting, I might as well include the faces I did last week but have not posted. The baby in Day 18 had this really crocked smile that I don't think I quite captured it. Not sure what's up with the baby in Day 19. It was such a tight shot, so I couldn't tell. The kid in Day 20 was in a bath tub. I guess he didn't like to get wet! : ) The little girl in Day 21 was just the prettiest and those eyes were perfect. I couldn't see the hair in the photo and didn't want to just make something up. So I left it as is. It's looked a bit strange leaving it like that. I was trying to get different expressions. I was getting a little tired of just female faces. Funny that I found myself making the same facial expression as I was drawing them. Maybe that helped!

  2. Any mug you show will be one I fall in love with. I agree that upgrades are difficult. I paid over $500.00 for PhotoShop back in 2000 when I needed it to meet a client's needs, and it's gone through so many upgrades I'd have to start over again. So I feel your frustration.

    Love those faces. You do such good work and make the drawings look so adorable. Thanks for sharing both your lovely pink mug and faces for T(ea) today.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth. Everything is so expensive. Let's not even start with upgrading phones!

  3. If it's not broke, don't fix it. I don't bother with upgrades very often unless i have a problem with the program. Your baby faces are really great!

    1. Thanks! Pretty much all my dishes are white or blue. Too many mismatch dishes later, I decided to just go white.

  5. I hear ya, a lot of my mugs are white as well, so I don't end up showing them on T Day either. I like your pink cup that you made. Unfortunately, I am running behind on visiting everyone's blogs, so instead of wishing you Happy T Day, I'll wish you a happy Wednesday! :)
