I came across this excellent tutorial yesterday on how to make 3D Text Effect using Photoshop and Illustrator. So I decided for this weeks tutorial, to let the good folks at Our Tuts to show you how its done! This tutorial will give you some practice on the basic uses of the two programs.
Below is what I came up with after looking at the tutorial. Read through the tutorial and come up with your own design with the tools that they give you!
If you need any help, give me a shout! Have fun!
