WoW!
Would love to know the process... assuming you used a 3D tool to map the letters to a wireframe... if you're willing to share.

Re: American Hero



Black shirt. Or Navy. Something where the design can blend into the blank. That would make this one really good.

Thanks!

There were quite a few iterations in this one. My first major attempt was my New Colossus design last year.

I use Google Sketchup to get the wireframe down and tweaked

Once I've got my model(s) and angle(s) down, I use Illustrator for text placement.

I use DAZ 3D Bryce for textures and shading

I use Photoshop to assemble the files and do the separations/halftoning.

There is a lot of trial and error bouncing back and forth between Bryce, Illustrator and Photoshop to get things "just right".

Thank you! It definitely took a lot of work to make something so "simple". Eric Carle has a few videos online on his process, and it mostly involved physical pasting of paper on a board, and that creates transparencies and such. Getting it to translate digitally took some experimentation, but I was happy with how it came out.

The whole thing is in illustrator, BTW. No photoshop at all.
