Christmas Greetings Postcard

 
In this adobe photoshop tutorial we are going to make a Christmas holiday greetings postcard. We will also explore some of 3D software to build basic geometry 3D shapes. So let's start with this one.

I would like to present you a very and easy to use application that I've discovered some time ago. I use this application to build geometric shapes. It is very fast and not hardware demanding. The software I s called Sketchup - yes, yes Google Sketchup.

Here its main screen. It has only one tool row on the top of the window. I greatly recommend you to test and use it for basic 3D modeling.

Let's start building shapes. 1st select the rectangle tool to draw the shapes in 2D (plain).

Then select the push/pull tool to create the objects from the plains you've just painted. Anyway it's better to try this one. I think that for 3D's max users it's clearer.

Another great thing is the Photoshop finally has the possibility to open 3D files. So we are already on Photoshop. You can open a 3D file like you used to do in PS. You can move, scale, rotate and even select the render method of the 3D file.

And another good thing to do the basics in 3D is that you have exact plain color definition. You can easily select the sides by mere Magic Wind Tool.

Now back to process. Firstly I would like to color the boxes.

Then I will select the areas that are black now and just color them in lighter tone. This way you can change the highlight/shadow position and the position of the object (in 3D_).
