Using Illustrator, Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder to create an avatar widget

bmw_z1Since I have a little more spare time now … I decided to hack a little bit :) . Avatar is the new hype nowadays :) and I wanted to understand how simple (or how complicated) will be to build an avatar widget. So I gave it a try, but instead of a Na’vi avatar, I decided to apply some artwork on top of an BMW Z1 :) .

I’ve made a video with my little workflow that you can watch it here (I couldn’t believe how easy it was).

You can also see the running demo (and download the source files) here.
