I've been attempting to recreate the text effect on the word BOLLYWOOD.
I've played around with applying a smooth cornered stroke - extruding then attempting to warp the text but have had no joy...
I'm looking to get this looking as close as possible. Has anyone any suggestions on how to approach this?
Cheers in advance!
I got this with a warp effect lower and 3D Extrude and Bevel. It's the wrong font of course, and some post processing to fill in the shadow/extrusion color would be needed, but I think it's moving in the right direction.
Hope it helps
Wish I could help but.....
I didn't use AI for this. I just saw the post and thought to practice 3d effects. I'm sure it can easily be done in Illustrator though. Some of the previous posters had a very similar rendition, just without the lighting effects and gold texture, which was done (the gold) with http://www.alienskin.com/eyecandy/examples/chrome.aspx Alienskin Textures BTW, a raster editor plugin.
