For my final Illustrator class project, I had to create a sell sheet for a watch that included a realistic-looking watch as well as a box for that watch. I decided not to design an entirely new watch, but rather to recreate a fun watch that I found. And believe me, this was not a shorcut — it took an immense amount of work to get the watch looking real, especially when it came to the subtle shading I had to do on the monochromatic watch style I chose.
I recreated a Jelly Watch, since I think it’s a really fun style, and though I took the pink from a real version of the watch, the other colors I used were ones I chose myself.
This project really brought together a lot of what we’d learned during this class, from advanced coloring and shading techniques to replication techniques (think of all those little minute marks and other repeated elements). It’s not terrible interesting to discuss, but the point is that everything on the page I made is an illustration. For those interested, the “outline” view of the file is below so you can see it’s components.
