How to Draw a Detailed Coffee Maker Illustration

Often even more advanced Photoshop users shy away from illustration in Photoshop, despite it having some very robust drawing tools at your disposal.

Often times the issue is the lack of a clear guide to help you through the process. Well today our resident expert Andrei Marius will show you how to create a super clean coffee maker illustration using some of Photoshop’s advanced drawing tools.

Despite this being a long and in depth tutorial, each step is broken down into clear step by step instructions, so whatever your level of design expertise you can follow along and learn some great techniques in the process.

Clean design couldn’t be more on trend right now, some being able to create slick illustrations like this one will allow you to create incredible custom icons and graphics to support your (or your client’s) clean website design.

Final Image

As always, this is the final image that we’ll be creating:

Step 1

Open Photoshop and hit Control + N to create a new document. Enter all the data shown in the following image and click OK. Enable the Grid (View > Show > Grid) and the Snap to Grid (View > Snap To > Grid). For starters you will need a grid every 5px. Simply go to Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices and focus on the Grid section. Enter 5 in the Gridline Every box and 1 in the Subdivision box. Also, set the grid color at #a7a7a7. Once you set all these properties click OK. Try not to get discouraged by all that grid. It will ease your work later. You should also open the Info panel (Window > Info) for a live preview with the size and position of your shapes.

Step 2

Focus on the Toolbar and set the foreground color at #ed4505. Pick the Ellipse Tool and create a 185 by 30px squeezed circle. Make sure that this new vector shape stays selected and switch to the Rectangle Tool. Focus on the top bar, check the Add button and simply add a 185 by 10px vector path as shown in the second image. The Snap to Grid should ease your work. Get back to the Ellipse Tool and make sure that your orange vector shape is still selected. Check the Add button from the top bar and add a new 185 by 30px squeezed circle as shown in the third image. Move to the Layers panel and double click on the existing vector shape to open the Layer Style window. Activate the Inner Shadow and the Gradient Overlay then enter the properties shown in the following images. The white numbers from the Gradient Overlay image stand for Location percentage.



Step 3

Pick the Ellipse Tool, create a 185 by 30px vector shape and place it as shown in the first image. Move to the Layers panel, open the Layer Style window for this new orange shape and enter the properties shown in the following images. The yellow zero from the Gradient Overlay image stands for Opacity percentage.



Step 4

Set the foreground color at black, pick the Ellipse Tool, create a 140 by 15px vector shape and place it as shown in the first image. Move to the Layers panel, open the Layer Style window for this new vector shape and enter the properties shown in the following images.




Step 5

For this step you will need a grid every 1px. Simply go to Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices and enter 1 in the Gridline Every box. Set the foreground color at #ed4505 and pick the Rounded Rectangle Tool. Set the radius at 5px, create a 24 by 15px vector shape and place it as shown in the first image. Send this new vector shape to back (Shift + CTRL + [ ), open the Layer Style window and enter the properties shown in the following image.


Step 6

Set the radius at 20px, create a 170 by 155px vector shape, place it as shown in the first image and go to Edit > Transform > Warp. Select Arc Lower from the Warp drop-down menu, enter 7 in the Bend box and hit Enter. With this blue vector shape still selected switch to the Rectangle Tool. Check the Subtract button from the top bar and draw a 170 by 25px vector shape as shown in the third image.

Step 7

Duplicate that blue vector shape (CTRL + J). Focus on the Layers panel, select this copy, replace the blue with white and grab the Rectangle Tool. Check the Intersect button from the top bar and draw a 5 by 140px vector shape as shown in the second image. Make sure that this white vector shape is still selected, open the Layer Style window, lower its Fill to 0% and enter the properties shown in the following image. Remember that the yellow number ("50") from the Gradient Overlay image stands for Opacity percentage.


Step 8

Duplicate that blue vector shape (CTRL + J). Focus on the Layers panel, select this copy, replace the blue with white and grab the Rectangle Tool. Check the Intersect button from the top bar and draw a 35 by 140px vector shape as shown in the second image. Make sure that this white vector shape is still selected, open the Layer Style window, lower its Fill to 0% and enter the properties shown in the following image.
