3D Photoshop Object Projects and Tutorials - Part II

More 3D for Fun and Function
In our last article we presented some nifty examples of what you can do with Photoshop in creating your own 3D objects. There are literally thousands of PS objects that you can download from the Internet, but the process of making your own Photoshop 3D items is not only fun but serves to add to your graphic design education.

Knowing how objects are created adds to your expertise as a graphic designer and can be valuable in making custom objects for your graphic design projects.

Here are some more for you to experiment with.

Making a glass cup isn’t all that hard, but adding a texture that isn’t expected can be very eye-catching. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to apply a wooden texture to the surfaces of a cup. This technique can be useful when you want to make something original looking and unique—perhaps a football with a marble texture for instance. The sky is the limit.

Somewhere, sometime, somehow you’ll need a 3D arrow for your graphic designs. Sure, it’s easy enough to download what you need, but the problem is that the generic arrows you download may not fit your exact needs.

Here is a quickie tutorial that will put you into 3D arrow heaven. You’ll be able to design a myriad of 3D arrows with these basic instructions. Add colors, textures, and special brushes to them for more bling.
