Check out another of my videos: “BREAKDOWN: Select and Mask vs. Refine Edge – Photoshop CC”
Check this video out at Hi-Res here: http://www.tutvid.com/tutorials/illustrator/tutorials/metalText.php
We are using Illustrator CS3, although CS2 should work fine as well with this video, to create some metal text that is fully vector. We will apply various strokes, expand strokes, work with effects, groups, and gradients and more!
