During this week’s workshop, we went over Adobe Illustrator one more time before we broke off to carry on with our work in the Christmas holidays. We were trying out the same 3D effects as before, but this time we were advised to experiment with them over the holidays and post what we’ve done onto our blogs.
We were tasked to work in a separate document and try out the three different 3D effects (Revolve, Rotate and Extrude & Bevel). As seen below, I split the document into three sections, one for each effect.

I found that the 3D effect I enjoyed experimenting with the most was Revolve, as it was quicker, easier and more efficient when it came to making recognisable objects (e.g. the Christmas tree, water drop and wine glass).
This particular effect was easy to use as the software can take a single drawn line (as seen above on the right side of the glass) and convert it into a complex 3d shape.
Below are images that show my finished work during the production stage, and how I managed to create the 3D objects and text.
