How To Create a 3D Tube Text Effect in Adobe Illustrator

In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial we’re going to have some fun using Illustrator’s blend tool to create a cool three dimensional type effect that looks like it’s made out of a long bendy tube. We’ll then apply an effect which gives it somewhat of a furry appearance, making it a useful trick to keep in mind for whenever you might need to make some creative artwork for titles or logos.

    Great tutorial. They always are. 🙂

    I was wondering whether or not you'd ever consider doing more general Illustrator tutorials? You seem to have a sophisticated grasp of the program and I think it would be useful, and likely relatively easy for you, to help people better understand Illustrator. I have a good grasp of Photoshop but find Illustrator more difficult to get things done in.

    Either way, I always enjoy your content and always look forward to more of it.
