Heh, this is the first drawing if Ai I did. Smile I did it with pencil and color pencils. I don't think it's really good, so yeahh. I drew the jam blobs bad. It's okay if you think it's bad, you can blab about it. I didn't do a very good job at taking the picture of it though. I might draw another one....
The cheeks are a bit chubby, but ehhh.

A brighter close up:

Surprised
Oh wow that's so cute!!! Love
The LOVE JAM cover has always been my favorite, just because of how funny it looks!! XD
You did just fine: both drawing and taking the picture actually. Thanks for brightening the image as well, it makes the details easier to see. Looking at this gives me the same satisfaction it does as the original, I love it.
Don't be so hard on yourself though, I really don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's really great.
Thank you very much for sharing, I'd love to see more of your work. Nod

It is pretty cute. Anyways, if you are looking for help, I would've drawn it pencil and then photoshopped it. It's really easy to make a watery/wet effect on ps, so it would've been easier to do the jam part.

Ahh, sorry I don't know how to take screencaps so I'll try the best explaining.
I've never used that technique to do Jam before, actually, but I have used it to make blood effect for a school project before. To see here.
That one is not very good because that was the first one I made before like that...

Anyways,

First, you have to find the shape that you want the droplet/drop to be in. Usually I take the 19 brush and change some of the settings, I always change the scatter to most, and sometimes I play around with the shape dynamics, it depends on what you want. I also click airbrush. I've also heard the technique of taking the magic wand tool and clicking on another image with circular shadows/etc. on it. In the case of using a brush, just stamp some of the brush on the picture where you want it to be, I like scatter sizes a lot. On the way of using the magic wand tool, you click on the circular shadow/etc. and press ctrl+c (copy) and then you paste it onto the picture. Well, anyways around, for color, for the way with the brush, obviously before you press it down you have to choose the color (in this case red or purple for Jam.). On the way of copying and pasting a circular shape, you have to go to blending options and change the color overlay to the color you would like.



Well, now that you have the shape down on the picture (it looks like polk-a-dots on the picture because there is no texture) usually I merge all the layers of the jam/blood/whatever you're doing because it is much easier to adjust one layer than many of them.

After you have merged them, go to blending options again and go to bevel and emboss. There you have to play around with the settings for a while. Aughhh, well, the one I ended up with looks horrible because the last time I did this was... too long ago to remember, haha.



I added an image so it could be seen better.

Ah, and sorry step 2's picture is different from 3, I x'd the window out by accident...

Well, if you take more time to do it'll look nicer... haha, unlike my finished product.

And of course remember at the end to make the opacity lighter so it'll seem more see-through, and when making the splattered layer you HAVE to make a new layer or it won't work.
