For this project, my goal was to make a watch that looks realistic. I went to my sketch book and went to work figuring different parts of a watch and their shading.
After looking at multiple watches and their different parts, I found a photo of a watch from Pinterest that I wanted to use as my inspiration.
I went to work in Adobe Illustrator, played around with different shapes and gradients, and produced the watch I was going for. I was able to create a leather pattern and make it look like a real leather band, as well as add dimension to the watch to make it look less 2D and more 3D.
The results were better than expected and I actually quite enjoyed the project. It was a lot of work, but it paid off in the end. I can definitely see where improvement could be made, but seeing as I have never attempted something like this before, I believe I have done a good job.
