Blackberries & thorns – ready for a soap label
Blackberry thorns alone
3 Blackberries

I spent a surprisingly long time arranging the berries. I may still go back and add the little hairs to them and possibly a shadow. It may not be noticeable, but each berry is a slightly different color because I wanted to make it clear that they were distinct even when they were on top of each other like this.

The hardest part of the thorns was getting the lighter color to run down the middle. I’m still not 100% happy with it, but after spending hours trying to fiddle with ‘mesh gradient’ until I gave up, I’m going to call this good enough for now.

Edit: here’s my soap label made from the above images.

  1. I like it, but I really think you need a couple of leaves on those canes. The blackberries look tasty, though. When will the soap be ready for purchase?

    1. Ugh…. leaves are hard. The soap label info will cover many sins, but I’ll look at some leaves if I want to offer it up on Adobe stock.
