Make a draft 3d text online

It's about creating a text effect that looks like a draft of a 3D text. Despite the sophisticated result, I tell how to get it with no design skills.

Firstly, you need to navigate to this free online 3D text generator, then configure its items like informed:
- Renderin style: 2nd item;
- 3D model: 6th item;
- Text: draft 3D text;
- Font size: Big;
- Text depth: 20;
- Draw shadow: No;
- Margin: 15;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Front face color: 606060;
- Line color: 000000;
- Depth color: AAAAAA;
- Font name: VlaanderenRound;

So we get a 3D text effect as shown next (click to enlarge):

Now we start the second part of this tutorial, when we turn the text into a sketch drawing. Save the previous text as a JPG image file to be used as input in this image to sketch converter. The online sketch maker must run with these parameter values:

- Rendering style: Sketch style 8;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Strokes color :: 000000;
- Use smart strokes: unchecked;

After this step, we get this amazing final result (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- save the first 3D text as a JPG with a low compression level, so you avoid too much distortion artifacts caused by the way the JPG is generated;
- by changing the colors of the initial 3D text, you can change the strength of the pencil sketch strokes;
- by changing the rendering style of the sketch software, you can change the way the drawing is created;
- you can create countless beautiful 3D text effects by using this free professional 3D text maker.
