Our friend Craig Shields found a one of his artworks in his hard drive and as he mentioned, it's his take on the "extremely over done" extrude 3D text effect. We don't care if it's common practice or not, the artwork is very cool and it's a good reference for those trying to learn how to use Photoshop and Cinema 4D for this type of effect. It totally deserves to be featured here on Abduzeedo.

If you don't know Craig, he is a Lincoln University Undergraduate and proud member of Depthcore, he has dedicated himself to the digital arts, often combining traditional and digital techniques to create some truly unique illustrations.

This has been on my hard drive for months and I realise that it's outdated but would like to share. My take on the extremely over done and common practice of EXTRUDED 3D TYPE. Enjoy.
