Who said you can’t Photoshop? Try my tutorial on how to create a Stunning 3D floral patterned text effect in less than 15 minutes. It’s easy and simple.
Photoshop CS2 or later
3D text rendering software.
1600×1200px blank canvas
Step 1: First, Pickup the Gradient tool(G) , choose Radial Gradient and fill the background of the canvas with desired colors. For me, I chose White as foreground and Bright Green as background Color.
Step 2: We’ll need something written in 3D. We have two possible variations: You can either use the “Extrude and Bevel” in illustrator or Xara3D to create the 3D text.
Step 3: Copy the 3D text to PS and rename layer as “3D Text”. Then, rotate, adjust the letters to your desire and balance the color.
Step 4: With me so far? Now make a new layer “floral” above the 3d text, and using any floral brush set, paint on that layer.
Step 5: Now add fx(Style[Inner Shadow], Blend Mode[normal], Opacity, Angel, UseGlobalLight[yes], Distance, Choke, Size); to the “floral layer”.
Step 6: Next, using Magic wand tool, select the outer layer of the 3D text layer and delete the selection after choosing the floral layer.
Step 7: Now add extra effects to splendor your work. These effects aren't needed, but they provide nice details to the final product. Now that we have the basic 3D floral text effect, we can add more effects to give it a reflection, and an environment.
