Creating a two-color stencil that delivers a 3D perspective. This uses SketchUp and Illustrator.
Step 1: Pop into 3D
To start off with, I take a classic videogame image and import it into SketchUp. After that, trace the images to create four polygons. With the push/pull tool, grab the polygons and pull them up to create a solid shape. Double-clicking on the three remaining shapes will repeat the action and bring them up to the same height for consistency.
