Re: Turtorial for Gold Coin
Let's not get a rash over this! Everyone who knows me knows that I prefer to draw in Xara but work decides what programme to use. Looking at Rik's instructions there is not much in it both of us really missed the hard parts of getting the embossed part of the coin to look really correct. Yet is best to make these instructions down to a line colour as you never know the ability of the user. I think the 3D tool in Illy is great as it prints well which is something that can't really be said for either the Bevel tool or the 3D tool in Xara. Also the ability to map art onto a revolved object be it vector or bitmap. It took me longer to get comfortable using Illy than it did to use Xara but that is neither here or there, many things come into choosing the correct software to use, it is only a tool to get things done.
