About This Class

In this class, you'll earn the necessary skillsets to take just about any 2d logo and convert it to 3d in your own way.

We'll use Adobe Illustrator, Cinema 4D, and Adobe Photoshop (in that order) to first prepare the 2d logo for 3d extrusion, create a custom environment, and light it correctly. We'll then texture and do some post processing to bring it to life.

Great class, thanks for sharing.
Super useful, very clear

Boredom spurs creativity.

Great tutorial worth your time! I came here with no previous experience in C4D or other 3D rendering programs, within few Patricks tutorials I was able to learn both basic and advanced techniques that I can now incorporate into my other designs, increasing their quality and overall impact. Cheers guys

Hello, I'm Patrick. Many know me as Patrick4d. I've been creating photorealistic abstract renders in Cinema4d and Photoshop for awhile now and was overwhelmed at the support and buzz surrounding my Instagram. My work has been featured by Photoshop, The Motion Designers Community, TheGraphicsPr0ject and more.

So as a thank you, I've decided to share some of my knowledge. I will be releasing a new class every month so hit the follow button and jump aboard!
