Design a 3D can drink is like other 3D objects. You need to work out shadow and reflection. To get started, you better prepare a real can object for reference, and develop your own logo for your can.
In this tutorial we’ll try to build a realistic 3D ice cube. Usually this kind of stuff is done with the help of some 3D software. And finally, with a soft brush eraser tool delete some irreguralities around the cube as no real ice cube has perfect line edges. Increase the contrast a little bit, and draw the background with the shadow.
Different topic needs to have different text effect to match with. If your topic is in dark background, this golden 3D text effect is a good option for you to apply. The main idea is to use some texture to overlay on the top of 3D text plus some adjustments in blend option.
