Pearl Milk Tea by kimchikawaii Pearl Milk Tea by kimchikawaii
Design for sale in my Zazzle shop: [link]
I really don't like drinking boba tea. I tried it once and the tapioca balls kinda disturbed me with their texture. But it was fun to draw :)

I actually tried bubble tea and didn't like it that much for drinking (the little pearls kinda creeped me out, texture-wise, lol), but it was really fun to draw!

I like it. Awesome design. I like that you made the boba edges softer to give some texture to it.

I know what you mean with bobas... the first time I tried them I was in middle school, and hated it. I ended up shooting mine through my straw at my friends. :XD: I think it was partly because they didn't seem to have much taste.

Then it all changed. A year ago, my roommate and I got them with a meal, and not only did the texture not bug me, but it had taste this time! =)

Thank you! Originally, I was going to just do straight, hard edge circles, but when I was looking at images of the tea, I noticed that since they are submerged in a milky liquid, they kinda fade into view so that's why I did it that way.

LOL- you shot them at your friends????? AHAHAHA! That's totally awesome!

Yep. I was a dorky middle school kid at the time.

They worked really well, too. Hard enough to get someone's attention, but soft enough they didn't really hurt. :XD:

It looks very cute, I've never tried it but I don't know if I would like it :o I like very thin and silky drinks.

Thank you! Yeah, I tried it and...well...uh...I tried it. I like tapioca and will even eat the pudding with the little beads in it, but I think the tapioca balls in the tea were too big and so you could feel the rubbery/chewy/bit slimy texture which kinda creeped me out. I ended up straining the tea through my teeth so I could avoid the tapioca.

There are a lot of people who love it around here. I see people walking around with their boba teas all the time, but I'll pass and just head into Starbucks if I want a beverage =D

very cute :) but shouldn't there be orange 'tea' in the space between the tapioca filled area and the top...it looks like there's a void in the middle o_o

Thanks! I wasn't sure what the tea looked like (just had a vague idea) and so I did a Google image search and they all just showed foggy/milky drinks. Maybe the orange tea part is before it's mixed?

Oh I see! It's not for everyone! >///< They don't have it anywhere close by where I live. So I only have it every now and then. But to me...It's so worth the wait!! ;p

Aww, this is really cute, I love it. Its got just a touch of a 60s flare to it. It'd make a good window ad for a store! Good work! (Btw I think its great how you have the tea swirling inside.)

Thank you! I never noticed that, but it does have a bit of a retro feel to it! I like to have action in my pictures if I can. My original sketch had it sitting there flat on a table and then I decided to make it bouncy :)

STuff like that can make all the difference in the world, for instance this actually had me walking away thinking "Aww, it looks so happy, now I want some bubble tea"

Thank you! Everyone talks about how great it is, but I just can't do it. I ended up drinking the tea through my teeth to strain out the tapioca. I like tapioca pudding and I don't mind the little beads in that, but I think that the tapioca in the drink are too large and I then notice the chewy rubbery weird slimy texture. Bleh!

I don't like boba either. But this looks very nice. I love the tapioca and the colors. The splash coming out of the straw is a nice touch.

Thank you! I did an image search on Google to get an idea of how to make the balls look realistic and get the tea color closer to life.
