Using a photograph of a SINGER sewing machine for reference, I recreated the image in Illustrator using the pen tool, shape tools and — most significantly — the gradient mesh tool, to give the object shine, shadow and a three dimensional appearance. The assignment also involved making an accompanying line drawing, as well as an advertisement in which to place the rendered appliance.
Above is the complete technical drawing. Below are four section details, followed by the wireframe, the original photograph, and the ad.
