Welcome to Part 2 of how to create 3D typography from scratch! In this final video, we take everything we created in Part 1 using Illustrator and bring it into Photoshop. Using Photoshop, we’ll add custom shadows and texturize those shadows to add extra visual interest and dimension. At the end of this video, you’ll have your own custom, print ready 3D typography you can use for social media profiles, posters, prints and monogrammed stationery. Let’s get started!

Assets used + mentioned in this tutorial:
Grit Textures (use Grit Texture Pattern #1 on your background)
Kyle’s Dry Media for Photoshop (use Perfect Pencil Basic 6px for shadow textures)
Mini Grit Textures (free texture alternative)

  • Hi Teela,

    I’m just starting to learn to use Illustrator and have found all your tutorials tremendously helpful for a beginner, especially as practice for learning all the functions and their applications. Thank you so much for creating them! Is there a reason why for this particular project we start out in Illustrator and move over to Photoshop? The answer may be obvious for someone who is more experienced with the two applications but not me…
