Preface— I enrolled in the online class LINC-405 in Summer 2021. The 7 assignments done were assembled in LINC-405 Summer 2021. William Cavada rolled me over to take LINC-405 this Fall Quarter. Attended the first LINC-405 class via Zoom on September 20, 2021. Since I took Adobe Photoshop with Cavada (June 2017), asked him how to place a label on a bottle.
He said use "warp" in "Transform" Edit Menu. Below is step-by-step process how this was
done to create the "Zeus Juice" energy drink bottle.


1. Finding a Bottle—

Nos Energy Drink
Unlike wine and liquor bottles that have long thin necks,
energy drink bottles are more sturdy and compact without the long neck. Samples are Energy Drink, Gatorade Beverage, Shield Electrolye Drink, Powerade Sports Drink, Hype Beverage, 5-Hour Energy Shot, Endure Sports Drink, Venom Black Mamba Energy Drink.
After some comparisons, selected Nos Energy Drink.

Long-neck wine bottles

2. Finding Image of Zeus—

Zeus with Lightning Bolt
While there are hundreds of portraits
of the Olympian God Zeus in Google
Images, selected the one showing Zeus
with a lightning bolt in his hand ( The image at left is 1044x768 pixels. When cropped it is 602x747 pixels.
