Lets Make Vectorial TFT in Coreldraw

I’m going to tell you some techniques in Coreldraw. We are going to make TFT Screen in Coreldraw. Some tools must be using while making this tutorial, like Bezier Tool, Shape Tool, Interactive Dropshadow Tool, Interactive Transparency tool etc. Alongwith some commands like Gradient, Fill, Skew, PowerClip etc.

1. Lets start with a new file. I’m going to start it from its Base, so pick Bezier Tool and draw the shape as shown below:

2. Now select this shape and pick Shape Tool  and select all three nodes at the edges:

14. Now I’m going to make the previous rectangle’s bottom left curve a bit small as of the new, you will need Shape tool and have to make a node by double clicking on the top left edge of the newly created curve and then make the curve of the bottom part as:

15. I’m going to make the width of the Screen, just use Bezier tool and draw the following shape:

16. Fill it with R =221, G=217 and B=218 and remove the outline, you will get this:

17. To give some reality, I’m going to make a small cut to separate two pieces, simply draw a line over this shape and give it the following outline line property by pressing F12 key:

you will get this:

18. Select this line, run the command, Effect >> Power Clip >> Place Inside Container, then click on the shape. The line will go inside that shape, just like Mask.

19. Now by using Line draw four lines on the bottom curve of screen and give the outline same as above, like:

20. Power Clip these lines into curves. Now by using Ellipse Tool draw small circles to make Buttons. Then apply same Fountain Fill as of Big frame and give drop shadow as:

21. Now make power light at its position:

24. Make a rectangle, by using Bezier tool, inside these shapes:
