i love this. i wish you could see it at max resolution.
now, wait, this really *is* a line exercise except for the circle bit.
i will have you know i made that entire intricate middle part as my line exercise and it was about 300 x 300 but it just CRIED OUT to be a clock and what could i do?
i confess i used eye candy's chrome for the gold beveling. this is the first course i've ever taken where i haven't been told i absolutely couldn't use plug-ins and i really like eye candy's bevel and chrome so i sometimes use them.
the clock hands are done with regular layer styles.
i tell you i *never* would have thought in a million years i could make something like this. never.
