Hi everyone, a very warm welcome to my new tutorial. I am Godwin D'Souza, thanks to everyone for viewing, liking and taking time to read and learn my first tutorial "Create an Ankylosaurus Dinosaur Scene in Illustrator". I am overwhelmed with its response and so I decided to make another tutorial. This is an advanced Illustrator tutorial. In this Illustrator CS3 Tutorial I will show you how to make a realistic Digital Concept Watch with Animation (Part 1). The output of which will be a swf file. By learning this tutorial you will be able to design your very own UI for any small watch application. In the end of the tutorial I will be giving you the free Adobe Illustrator design file, swf file for download for study reference, also in addition to this tutorial I will be giving another freebie. i.e at the end of this tutorial the so called Digital Concept Watch will no longer be just be a Concept Watch with the same time blinking and changing colors, you will be getting a free real working Digital Watch Desktop Application (a pc software installation file) with random flashing colors displaying you the current time, date, month and year of your very own pc time zone. Which is safely tested on Windows XP and Windows 7 machines. And if you are really interested in learing how to make the free Digital Watch Desktop Application (Part 2), yes which is the 2nd part of this tutorial, at the end of this tutorial I have guided you with links to my website, where you can learn from it, but for that you will have to learn or know at least the 1st part of this tutorial that is the UI Design. So have fun and a happy learning Resources needed Illustrator Brush Realistic Chain Pattern by Michael Lenarcic Font 7 Segmental Digital Display by Ash Pikachu
