When you are fed of using image as your artwork, you can have a try on the 3D text art creation. It is equally challenging to the traditional image art or painting, as it is difficult to apply a rich content into this kind of arts.
Text effect is very important that can improve your overall design appearance. If you would like to create a even more professional text effect, you can use illustrator to initiate your text design, then use photoshop for color and lighting adjustment.
Modern artists often use more than one application to create their work. This often means working outside of Photoshop much of the time. In this tutorial, it will how you how to create a 3D typographic illustration using Cinema 4D to build the 3D and Photoshop for the post-production.
In this tutorial we are going to take some very basic principles of light and shade to make a rather impressive looking text effect. Finally we duplicate the top lighting layer one more time and set it to opacity, then click the Add Layer Mask button on the layers palette again and draw a linear white to black gradient from top left to bottom right. This makes the extra lighting layer fade off as it goes down right.
In this tutorial we’ll be creating a smokey night effect on text to give it an eerie supernatural sort of feel.

I used only three or four filters, brushes and of course the Layer Styles. As always, the idea is to play around with Photoshop to get your own unique results.
