Engraving/etching is nothing new but there is always room for new ideas and ways to make them look even better. Back in 2001 when I introduced engraving to the modding community with the Glowpad article
(world first lighted mousepad), the basic one colored line drawings were enough to make everyone smile. 2002 saw the introduction of multicolored engravings
. It was about time to make them animate and that is what this tutorial is all about.
I'll first introduce the technique with a simple logo and then move on to something bit more flashy.
I have to apologize about the watermarks on the images. The article was originally published on my modding site: http://metku.net/
