Create a Dream Design with 3D Typography Hello, my name is Alex Beltechi, a designer that is currently studying in college and working in the print media realm. I would love to explain my vast experience and overwhelming knowledge to you, but due to the fact that I have no such qualities, I’ll stick to sharing what skills I’ve been developing lately, through tutorials. Among keyboard shortcuts and mouse clicks, I enthusiastically tap piano keys and dream of adjusting a lens’ focus. And in case you’d like to find me on the web, you can read my tutorials on PSDTUTS or see more of my work on my Behance portfolio. Introduction In this tutorial, we’re going to create a 3D Typography based design. Dreaming often takes you to different places and unites bits and pieces of your memory. Naturally, people dream at night, so the overall lighting will be dark and predominated by a cold color palette: cyan and lime green. Also, the typography should have a classic, storytelling look; one that would complete the eerie atmosphere.

Tron Legacy Tutorial Since the very first time I saw the trailer of Tron Legacy I decided that I would have to try to do something inspired on that, all those light effects were exactly what I always love to do in Photoshop. Then I saw the James White design inspired by Tron and I was damn it, James nailed it. So I postponed my little experiment, however this week I decided that the time had come and so, I decided to recreate the logo effect we see in the trailer. For this tutorial I used Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Cinema 4D. Step 1 The first thing to do is find or create the logotype of Tron Legacy. Step 2 Once you have the vector logo it's time to create the 3D version of it. Step 3 One thing that was really cool with the Tron Legacy logo was that sort of digital pattern it has in the light effect, so to create that I used a simple Tiles texture for my material, that is a default preset in Cinema 4D. Step 4 Step 5 Here is the final render in Cinema 4d. Step 6 - Photoshop Step 7 Step 8 Step 9 Step 10
Create a Steam Powered Typographic Treatment - Part I Whether or not you're a Steampunk fan, this two part tutorial is sure to test your knowledge on Illustrator, Cinema 4D and Photoshop. In the first half, we're going to customize a Blackletter font and create 3D text with vector shapes. There's lots to do, so let's start with the first part of this two-part series! In this type treatment, I sought to bring together a Blackletter font with the alluring Steampunk Style. Be sure to check out one of our other Steampunk tutorials on Psdtuts+, How to Create a Steampunk Style Illustration in Photoshop for great inspiration and some traditional Steampunk gadgetry! Take a look at the image we'll be creating. For now though, we're going to try and get this far. The first program on today's list is Illustrator. As you can see when zooming in, the font has a lot of harsh edges because it's free, and not meant to be used for display purposes. Try to keep the lines as smooth and natural as possible. Then trace the... swirly thing near the center.
Create Destructive Black and White Lettering with a Dramatic Splash Effect Today, I'm gonna take you into the beauty of black and white design.

In this work, I create typographic art using abstract lines. In this tutorial, our main task is to create covered typography. Let's reset the colors to default. Make a new layer and name it "Lust."

Add Fantastic Color to 3D Text - Part I This is the first part of a two part series. Part two will be released tomorrow.

Some neat techniques covered here will allow you to bring your art to the next level. Don't miss it! Take a look at the image we'll be creating by the end of this two Part series. This tutorial series is kind of a continuation of the tutorial Super Malleable Lines. First of all, to create the 3D text, you need to download the demo version of Xara 3D6. The best way to start a colorful art piece is finding the right colors. Let's start with opening a new document of around 1350 pixels by 1600 pixels with a resolution of 300px/inch. So now that we found a good fitting color, grab the Paint Bucket Tool (G) and fill the new layer with #166a91. Now what we need is to give this background some life. When you're done with coloring the background make sure everything works for you fine.
