In this tutorial I will showcase three different approaches for creating simple 3D lettering effects in thecontext of poster design. Onward and upward we go!
Introduction
I will start off by drawing the letter-forms for the three words “ONWARD,” “AND” and “UPWARD.” Fromthere I will show three ways to create simple, yet interesting 3D effects. 3D is the latest craze (See: nearlyevery movie that has come out in the last two years) but my interests are in 3-Dimensional lettering that hasold school, subtle, simple, imperfect, more humanistic qualities. Drawing inspiration from vintage posterlettering, and overall aesthetics, everything will be wrapped together to create the full poster design.
Drawing Lettering
As always, good lettering starts with a sketch. You just need to get the basic idea and composition. Thebasic idea for this tut is that the poster will be split diagonally and the letters will go from big to small (andvise versa).
Step 1a
This sketch is very rough and is basically there to reference when actually creating the lines in AdobeIllustrator (AI).
