Tutorial Preview:

18. Above the background layer, we will draw another path (which is slightly smaller than the earlier one) and fill it with a gradient.

19. Next we will draw a semi-circle which will serve as the half filled liquid in the glass.

20. Note the gradients in various layers. Drawing a glass is really all about playing with gradients. Teaching someone how to choose them is impossible, it is a practice of observation. Observe wine glass in reality and try to create the same gradients.

21. Create a random shape to give the illusion of depth in liquid.

22. Create another gradient shape on right.

23. Draw another reflection on the bottom.
