Take a 10-minute recess every week and join Bert Monroy in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, the playgrounds of digital artists. Every Friday Bert walks through a fun, self-contained project that tests your skills and challenges the imagination. These programs aren't just image editors; they are sandboxes for creativity and experimentation. Take a spin through a carousel of tools and get reinspired, each and every week.
What we're going to do this week is create a wine goblet. And we're going to look at some of the 3D features in Photoshop. And we're actually going to give it a texture. This title of cups that comes out of Poland, which have a very specific hand painted design, that's what I want to follow. i want to create a goblet that has that kind of a design on it. So what I've got here is I've created the actual design. I've gone in there, created little circles and little leaves, made them look like they're hand painted, so it's not very very intricate, it's just rough and there are a couple little white spots here and there, just to make it look ike it is, in fact, hand painted, looking at these real cups.
So right here, I got a file where I'm going to create my goblet. So what I'm going to do is i'm going to bring up the rulers and pull out a guide right to the center of my page right there. So now i can get rid of the rulers, don't need them anymore. But we have a guide that we can use. So what i want to do is i'm going to go in here and start with my pen tool, i'm going to create the goblet. Start right here, right about the middle, right there. Click and drag, holding down my shift key to constrain the little handles there. Come right here and click and drag. And what's happening here is i'm creating the actual little bowl.
There's the little bowl of my goblet. Come back around on itself right here. Follow this edge. Right there, like that and come down a little further, say right about, to about here. And pull that way out. Hold on to that shift key to constrain it. Now i'm going to hold down my option key to shorten this little handle just a little bit and make it loop around this little part right there, and come down, and start to kind of come out here. Form this little ball area here, little rounded part, bring it back down, come down, and and do that.
Pull back here. There we go. And click and here's the little base, right there like that, which I'm now going to just bring it right back to the original starting point. Click and drag. Now, I'm going to close it off, so I hold down my option key to give this a corner point. And still holding the option key, I click at the top and there it connects it. There we go. So now, we need to modify it a little bit, so I'm going to go in there and do that. I'm going to just kind of clean this up just a little, make this ball a little less pronounced. I don't want it to really get in the way when you're trying to, grab this goblet.
And we'll kind of just bring this in just a little. And there, that's a good cross section of our little goblet. So, now that we have that, what I'm going to do is I'm going to select that, and then I come over here to 3D, and say, 3D Extrusion from Selected Path. Click OK. Now, it's asking me, do you want to switch to the 3D workspace right now using Essentials? So I say Yes, do it. And you see that all the panels got reconfigured to those that pertain to a 3D environment. And there, we see that our little shape has been extruded.
And now right now it's just kind of going straight out, like a, like a letter with some depth to it, and so on. But what I want to do with it, I want to go in here and I'm going to play around with it. I'm going to go into my actual pieces here and I select my little background and There you can see. This is the object itself right here. These are all the pieces of the object. And I have some shape presets. So, what I'm going to do is I'm going to check right here and go down to the bottom. At the bottom of the list here is this guy. Which means revolve, kind of like a lathe. Click on that, and there you see our goblet just took on the shape of a real goblet.
And when I move this around you can see that in fact it is a goblet with an opening and so on. So, there, so there's our little cup. So far so good. So now what I'm going to do, is I'm going to go here to the shapes. This is the actual materials that make it, and there's the extrusion material. So, what I'm going to do is I'm going to come up here to the diffuse and say edit the texture. I'm going to click on that. See, and it brings me into this thing right here. It's kind of confusing, but it kind of shows me the breakdown of where my pieces are. So, now I have that texture that I created.
This one. What I'm going to do, is I'm going to do a select all and I'm going to copy it. Just copy it. Then go back to my extrusion default texture here, and I'm going to paste it right in there. going to say Paste. Now it's a little smaller. So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to just kind of make it grow to the actual size that I have here. And I'm going to expand it a little bit. I like that. Click OK. Now right off the bat I could see that this is a little off, because I had this opening here so if I move this guy down just a little to fit that little area right in there.
Well I want to fill that completely so what I'm going to do is pull it out this way a little bit. Just to expand it like that. There we go. Make that happen. Now I'm going to save this. I'm just going to go ahead and save this in its current state. So I say, save. So when I go back to my goblet, you'll see that it's taken on that shape. Now this is pretty close, but we can see what it's done. It's really kind of truncated these guys. It's really truncated up. And this is a little off, I would like that to be a little more right in line with that edge. So I go back to the materials here, and I take that part, this part right here.
And this is that part right there where that blue is. And I'm going to kind of enlarge that a little bit. I'm going to just pull this out a little bit like that. And out this way a little bit like that. Click save it. Go back to the goblet. And there, we see that it is going right around the ball. And then this area here, I'd like that to be a little more rounded. So I go back to here, and what I do is I take the entire thing. And I'm going to enlarge that, enlarge it this way so it's straight. See how it's making 'em flat? So making 'em kind of long, e, elliptical here.
Click OK. Save that. Go back to my goblet. And we could see that now that's starting to get a little more round. Maybe not as much as, I'd like. So, let's just go back to the material. Select this. And enlarge it even more. Now, It looks like it's distorting it here. Don't worry about it because remember, it's distorting it in the goblet once it brings it out it really long and almost like they looked vertically in the cup. So let me make that happen. Save it and I'm hitting it by the, by the keyboard here. You can hear it happening.
And then I go back to my goblet. And there you can see that now they have the nice round shape that they should. We can take away that guide. Clear the guides. And we can see that we have our cup. And we can twirl it around and see it any way we want. Go in there and rotate it round, and we see the inside of the cup is white, and the bottom is white, and we have our nice little shape all the way around. We can control lighting and all these other things, but what I wanted you to see, basically, is how to get those textures to fit the shape that you want. It's just a question of moving around and, and quickly saving.
Keeping the texture open, and then saving it and referring back to the goblet. Back and forth, between the two, I can easily go and make the changes. And once I make a change here. Let's just say I put in a little brown dot right here. We'll put in some brown dot. Okay? I save that. We go back and look at our goblet and where's our brown dot? Well actually it's inside the goblet. It's inside the goblet, so if we twirl it around, there's our brown dot inside, see. Why? Because I put it way over here into this white area, which is the inside of the cup.
Had I put my brown dot here. I say we put a brown dot here, and a brown dot there, and a brown dot there. And save that. Go back to our cup, and there we can see the brown goblet. The little brown dots are here, here, and the other one is on the other side. Right there, see. So it just gives you can go and play with textures that wrap around the 3D objects that you create in Photoshop.
