TUTORIAL JUNE 5, 2001
Eyes Have It
1 . As with the "Innerinner" object, we're first going to do a little shape changing. So switch over to FX mode, select the Flatten effect and create a depression whose diameter is about 1/3 the total diameter of the visible area of the "Inner" object, just as you did with the "Innerinner" object..
2. Switch to the Material mode.
All done with the "Inner" object. Time to move on to the "Outer."
1. Go into Tool mode and choose "Outer" from the Choose menu at the bottom of your screen. You're going to use the Brush tool, but we're going to have to set both the radius and the direction of the brush. In the Brush palette, make sure the direction arrow is pointing left. Set the Radius to something like a third the diameter of the object.
2. Slowly apply the tool until you have a small protrusion. It would be best to use a pressure tablet, but you can also just turn down the default pressure in the Brush palette.
3. Change your direction arrow back to right-facing and use the Smooth tool (the one that looks like a sponge) to get rid of any rough edges.

3. Now we'll go into Material mode.
