A Guide to Creating 3D Text in Adobe Illustrator

Check out my latest tutorial from Design Instruct: A Guide to Creating 3D Text in Adobe Illustrator

It isn’t always necessary to use a 3D program to create 3D text — they’re expensive and overkill if you just occasionally use 3D elements. Adobe Illustrator is more than adequate in allowing us to create some 3D objects with some basic shading for our text. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to make some 3D text using Adobe Illustrator, and also discuss techniques of shading the text to give it a clean, consistent, and stylized look.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Thanks a lot for the helpful article. It is also my opinion that mesothelioma cancer has an extremely long latency interval, which means that indication of the disease won’t emerge right until 30 to 50 years after the preliminary exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, which is the most common type and has an effect on the area round the lungs, will cause shortness of breath, upper body pains, and a persistent coughing, which may cause coughing up blood vessels.
