This project was undertaken to recreate a time piece (Westclox Scotty was the final decision) as photo-realistic as possible, within Adobe Illustrator. This project underwent multiple phases, including research, sketching and peer reviews, in order to create the final product.
Research and Sketches
The research that was conducted was to look at various version of the Westclox Scotty that were released for consumers, as well as light and shadow studies were conducted in order to better capture the look and feel of a realistic Scotty. As seen in the sketches, the Scotty was not the only timepiece under consideration and that underwent these light studies.
Once the sketches had been completed, work began in rendering the Scotty in Illustrator. After each draft stage, it was shown to peers to receive their feedback concerning the current stage of the project, as well as how to improve each step moving forward.
The Final Product
After the second round of feedback, final touches were applied to the watch, to make the Westclox Scotty as perfect as possible.
