This assumes you have a reasonable working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator. The version I use is Illustrator CS, but I have no reason to think that versions 9 and 10 wouldn't be able to cope with similar instructions.

The tutorial describes how to make a drinks can, in this case in the style of Pepsi, but can be applied to any drinks brand.

The original can design was done as a DA ID for =dualdesigns

The tutorial so far is great but I'm having trouble at step 4. Ive created the halftone effect on a new layer below the metal effect. I have it set at 25% but when I make it 'overlay' it disappears. What am I doing wrong?

I'm not entirely sure, without seeing what you have done I can't tell what the problem is :(

i got a question, which i think you used in this tutorial so it shoudl be possible. How do you make a gradient going from 90% opacity to like 3% opacity? I know how to do it in photoshop, but not here.

Great tutorial by the way :D
