Since creating my first cupcake illustrations, I discovered just how fun food illustration is. I’ve been practicing a few different food drawings since then, but today I really wanted to share with you my latest illustrations that I made of some ice creams!
I think when it comes to food illustration, I’ve found that I enjoy drawing desserts and sweet things the most. They’re always so beautifully decorated, interesting to draw and come in so many different varieties. I really love designing cakes, but as I’m enjoying the summer sunshine at the moment, I decided that ice cream would be a good choice of subject for my next set of illustrations!
Usually, I draw from looking at an image, but when I made these I left the drawing completely down to my imagination and just drew from my mind.
…I think I must have been pretty hungry at the time, as I ended up designing some rather wacky/exciting flavours and illustrations!
On the left, I drew a yellow and blue ice cream combination, which I imagine to be a lemon and blueberry, with sprinkles and a glacé cherry on top. For the middle ice cream, I designed a mint, orange and raspberry layered ice cream, topped with a chocolate sauce and toasted marshmallow. Then, for the third I drew a lavender Ice Cream with a chocolate flake and coloured sprinkles… Definitely some interesting combinations.
Here are the finished illustrations! I hope you like them!
