Create a realistic vector drawing of an actual hardware object or small appliance. Expected to use layers efficiently and to choose the most suitable of Illustrator’s many tools and features as well as experiment with filters, effects and warps for creating realistic shading, contours, and surface textures.
Using a combination of the shape and pen tools a line-art version of the chosen appliance was created with white fills and black lines. The line drawing was then used to create a colour version of the appliance. The final artwork was produced by layering shapes, applying colours using the eyedropper tool on gradients and gradient meshes, as well as utilizing blending modes and effects.
