Create Abstract 3D Design Elements
Learn How To Use 3D to Create Abstract Designs Using Textures and Lighting
In this project, we will explore 3D from a different angle (pun intended). :-) I love discovering all the things 3D can do in Photoshop and this is one of those things that you find yourself playing with so many variations. With a simple texture, you can create some really interesting 3D objects with incredibly realistic lighting effects that can be used as background design elements. The great thing is you can change the angle, texture, and even modify the original shape to create variety of different versions from a single object. Oh and I threw in a little bonus tip at the end! Enjoy!
