For my capstone class, we had to do a hyper realistic painting. I chose my favorite treat, the Ferrero Rocher. It's not an exact match from the source image I took but damn I think I got enough details there, don't you think?
Done in Photoshop CS5 w/ a Wacom tablet.
My own reference image was usedSee the animated process gif
