Joe SkeesickPocket Watch

Created for use on an intranet site, this illustration started life as a scratched up coaches watch swiped from a local history/volleyball teacher in Wisconsin. A few hours in Xara and a little gracious rendering and suddenly its a brand new watch.

This illustration is another prime example of where Xara shines. Using Xara to render an illustration with the softness of bitmaps yet retaining the ability to be completely accurate on the millisecond marks around the dial. Then, after it was done, animating it was quick and easy. Something you would not want to attempt with a bitmap illustration.
