The foundation for your 3D Your Names masterpiece is simply writing out your word or words on the paper and getting them to fit the space well first. Your letters should be evenly spaced out and not crowding each other too much.
Step 1: Into Block Style Letters
Now, expand your line letters into block style letters. It may help to draw a guide line across the top and bottom of the letters to keep you an track. In my case I built the block letters centered around the line letter like on the "A" if possible. For other letters such as the "N" and the "J," I built the block letter off to the right of the line letter. Just work your way through the letters doing your best to even out the spacing.
Step 2: Enter the 3rd Dimension
It's time to enter the 3rd Dimension! Draw short diagonal lines from the corners of all your letters. These lines will form the edge of the your Name thickness or depth. The lines should all be of the same length. When you are faced with a rounded letter, do your best to draw an angled line from the part of the curve where the edge changes direction from up-down to right-left.
Step 3: Connect the Diagonal Lines
Connect the diagonal lines doing your best to match the contour of the block letters. Also, try to keep the distance from the block letters consistent.
Step 4: Make the Letters Pop
Here is where we really make the letters pop! Add shading to the edge of of your Name. This gives the impression of shade or shadow and depth.I have added some hatch marks to the face of the letters to indicate a little bit of texture or reflection.That part is totally optional.
