New & Improved 3D Text/Logo Tutorial!

Recommended Posts

This is my first and second try at this tut. Very cool effect ! I guess I need to work through it a few times and play around with the angles and the hi-lites a little cause mine looks a little goofy compared to some of the ones on here. Wow you guys are really really good. Thanks for a great tut and a very cool effect. Oh, and the alpha mask is essential to get the sharpness needed for it to look realistic. Man what a useful tool !

My first one, pretty bad, but hey I'm tryin', but it looks more like gummy worms. :lol:

This is my second try, I think it's a lot better, but still not what I want it to look like. It does look more like a hard plastic though. :D

Could you go back through the steps and find the one where you get off track? Maybe someone can help you if they know exactly what step it is where you get off track.

[#11] Adjust the transparency of your glare and maybe mess around with your gradient tool in transparency mode.

To do this, press F4, or go to the Layers > Layer Properties. From there, you should be able to change the Opacity of the layer ;)

I do like the checkered background... I don't know what you did differently, but I couldn't get the outline to match as shown in the tutorial. I had to mess with the rotate and zoom to get the outline to match the edges. Still not perfect, but close.

I tried but for some reason, the white layer to make it look 3D was all scratchy looking.

Re-did the colors for the Israel flag. Not as good dents as the bottom one... I just started this yesterday.
