This project I worked on is my first time to use Illustration to make a photo-realistic vector graphic. It was very useful time to learn how to use Gradients effectively.
- Choose watch/clock
I had to research different kinds of clock or watch. I really liked the color and the simplicity of the clock.
I started to sketch little details of clock. I broke it down to pieces and tried to catch lighting and shading.
This is my first draft. I haven’t figure out highlights and shading enough. I was able to learn how to make bow tie shape highlights on the face of the clock. I used shape tool and blur to look like this. I still had to make shades naturally blended with a clock.
4. Final Clock
This is my final clock. I added a brand name, Karlsson. I made shading a little bit lighter so it blends well with the face of the watch. I added more shading and highlights to the hands of a clock.
It’s true that you learn something when you are out of comfort zone. A new challenge is what makes you stronger.
