Freehand Glass

Recommended Posts


I studied all of your Glass-Tutorials but it seems that my problem can only be solved with a new Tut.

You may know the Office-Icon which was released with MS-Office 2003.

My idea is to create some glasspipes which I can bend in any form I want (a shape of an orb, a shape of a trinagle and so on) as it has been done with the Office-Icon.

Can you help me please?


Any mistake you find... kepp it. ;o)

You can't 'bend' in PDN as such, it's just not possible. You'll have to find workarounds such as drawing the basic shape with the Line / Curve tool, colouring it then applying a shine or reflection (neither are plugins by the way) to the created shape to give the appearance of tubing. Gradient could be a very useful tool for this *hint hint*.

This is the best advice I can give, but I'm sure someone has found something more helpful.
