How to Create 3D Objects Quickly in Illustrator

In this “Three Minutes Max” video, Kladi Vergine shows us that you can create great looking 3D objects quickly, even if you don’t know anything about 3D! Using just the pencil tool to draw her object, she then gets an assist from Photoshop via the Libraries panel to add a background. Back in Illustrator, Kladi uses the 3D and Materials panel to change the object’s look and adjust the lighting as well.

Three Minutes Max comes from a fun—yet very competitive—session at our annual CreativePro Week conference. Speakers have three minutes to wow the audience with the tip and win a prize for a lucky conference attendee.
