Drawing a Greek Taverna Menu Main Image
The project was to design an image for a traditional Taverna, with Cretan cuisine and the famous Raki, to decorate the menu.
The name says it all: Theories of Raki - Ρακοθεωρίες...
 
So we decided to hand illustrate a typical meze with raki. A piece of Greek tradition...
Here we illustrate how we started, the various steps that followed and the final image produced.
Setting up the drawing area and start the basic forms...
Measuring the geometry...
Drawing the basic lines of the shadows and reflections...
Refining the elements...
Adding more forms in the scene...
Next form...
Still adding forms...
and the last form...
refined with details, shadows and reflections...
Time for the pens... we started with Artline 03
Basic forms passing over and shadowing...
Adding refinements and details...
Finished with Artline 03...
Passing on the next pen - Sign pen 1.0. Outlined all forms and added more intensity of the shadows shere needed...
Passed from a scanner to Adobe Illustrator for vector transforming... this is the finished vector file.
Added the typography...
Final image with colour...
