“Text effect food is created only with the tools in Adobe Photoshop CS5 – 3D, effects, layer styles and a simple set texture without the use of any photographs, stock images or texture of the food.
Some objects, such as hot dogs, burgers/sandwich tops, pancakes, French fries are created from scratch in 3D, plus the sets of shapes and objects. Green lettuce and the texture of the bacon created from the “mesh from grayscale”. This is a very useful and interesting tool. It helps to create a relief surface using the “gray” texture and relief of the terrain and shadows for depth of the object. Fried eggs, small items such as sandwiches onion, tomatoes, cheese, mayonnaise, mustard and some others are created out of ordinary flat shapes and simple effect layer style.“
“Smash (the word itself inspired me, which means ‘explode’, I used the tools in Cinema 4D.) Created extruded the text and then turned a bit to each character. Added the explosion FX and played with the properties of the object. Textures with reflective material, used object the sky, to reflect it in the text. After various test treatments, corrected the channels and opened in Photoshop. Added to the final composition of image layers of different overlays. Created a scene with the text and sphere. Developed a base composition, which looked good. Used a variety of lights, opened Photoshop for the final composition of my class. In Cinema 4D I created the scene, imported it, added shadows. Used a very wide angle camera to create the illusion of looking up at this huge facility.”
“I experimented with 3D typography, and this was one of my first-ever 3D-projects of this type. They were made for the sake of the experiment and familiarization with the software. I used Autodesk 3Ds Max, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. As I experimented, mostly, ideas come randomly, but most of them inspired future projects, which you can find on my behance.”
“I get inspiration from different sources, the Bible (I am born Christian), sayings that I hear or see. I use a mixture of Cinema 4D, vRay, Photoshop and Illustrator. I started drawing typography in illustrator and then import into Cinema 4D, where I model and put a texture on the typography , then using a vRay light editing, and then put it in Photoshop, change from using a composite layering with other textures and color balance”.
“To create 3D letters I used Xara 3D. This software that allows you to create 3D typography, adjust lights, textures, colors, but it’s pretty limited if you want to work with individual objects separately, then it is not too much room for editing. So, in the end, I exported each letter separately and then put together in Photoshop. When I studied graphic design in Lithuania (Vilnius Academy of arts) we were asked to make typographic compositions illustrating selected word and made it understandable even for those who don’t know the language, trying to manipulate only the fonts and characters, although I added the backgrounds later. I decided to work in 3D and I need something really simple and easy as time was limited, I wasn’t worried about file size, so Xara 3D was me. I think You can’t work with a font larger than 72pt. Therefore, all the illustrations are from Lithuanian words “moon”, “toad” and “Prince” “.
