Pepsi Can ID Tutorial - Part 1 by zilla774 Pepsi Can ID Tutorial - Part 1 by zilla774
This assumes you have a reasonable working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator. The version I use is Illustrator CS, but I have no reason to think that versions 9 and 10 wouldn't be able to cope with similar instructions.

The tutorial describes how to make a drinks can, in this case in the style of Pepsi, but can be applied to any drinks brand.

The original can design was done as a DA ID for =dualdesigns

The second step describes how to add details.

If I only had reasonable knowledge on using Illustrator. I'm still a Photoshop guy. I tried using it once and nearly cried from how frustrating it was... I guess it just takes getting used to.

I've been following this great tutorial of yours today. But, with my not so vast knowledge of Illustrator, I'm having a bit of trouble following the gradient mesh step. While I know what a gradient mesh is and how to apply one, I'm not quite sure how you got the result you did and I think it'd be a good idea if you went into a little bit more detail in the actual tutorial and added a step to show how you got your highlights using the mesh.

ok, i think i might do a tutorial just on gradient meshes.

have u looked at the sugar bag tutorial i did? that expands the mesh technique a little
