Hi,

 

For my fourth try in AD I wanted to illustrate at Omega Speedmaster watch. Think it worked out well :-). Still a few glitches here and there :-(

 

The hardest to figure out how to make was the wristband with the try to make it look woven. I did it with a costume made brush I made.

 

I am still amazed how well AD performs. Great to get under the skin of the software. I set my self these challenges (HTC Phone, Nexus phone, Bulb and this) so that I would be sure to really learn to use AD, not just fooling around.

 

Compared to how I usually does these illustrations Photoshop (Vector Layers), then AD is by far the easiest.

 

Please enjoy!

 

If anybody is interested I can upload the original AD file.  UPDATE! I have added the AD original file also now.

 

 

 

Br,

 

Philip

Hi,

 

I have cleaned up the file and attached it to the original post. Not so big after all. I had some reference images in it for the band texture, which I removed.

 

Thank anyway!

Great work. There's something (to me, in any case) hypnotic about photorealistic art. Thanks for sharing!

Hehe, I may have overstepped there slightly, :D  but.... and obviously photoshop is huge beast with deep image manipulation capabilities I am not even aware of..., for this kind of work, for illustration or creating illustrative images be they photo realistic or painterly from scratch (as opposed to creative photo manipulation - we'll wait for Affinity Photo for that)  Affinity Designer is showing us that it can certainly rise to the challenge.

 

It's the implementation of vector/pixel compatibility combined with ease of use that does it for me. Focusing on great features and a streamlined workflow that delivers results is going to win people over.  Competition benefits us all, and it's been awhile.  ;)

Thanks for uploading the Omega AD file, pmeinertz. It's so amazingly detailed with subtle fx, I thought it was a high resolution PSD image at first. Keep it up!

Excellent piece of work and my kind of illustration. There are those who would say , "why not use a photograph?" My answer to that is you couldn't take a photo that good! Well done!
