I just want to first send out a big congrats to all of our US olympians who are all doing a fabulous job over in London. One of the things I love about the Olympics, aside from the events, is the visuals. Everything form the opening ceremony, the architecture, the people, and the graphics. I especially enjoy the broadcast motion graphics that are created for such high profile events like this. I was especially drawn to the NBC Olympics logo. I could obviously see that It was created in a high end 3D app like Cinema 4D or Maya, but I just could not help but wonder if something like that could be achieved solely in Photoshop using 3D. So I most definitely had to give it a go and I have to say the results are pretty close. Despite a few limitations, I was actually able to get most the same look. I decided to record the process and post it as a time-lapse so you can see, from the beginning what can be achieved using just Photoshop. Enjoy!

Share & Enjoy

    wow, that was great! I have been looking at that logo as well, wondering If I could make it. So it was of great interest to me to watch this video. You did a really great job, it was just tooo fast. I would love a tutorial on it! I am not much of an illustrator; I would love to be better and am working on that. I know photoshop pretty well, but apparently not that well.
    thanks for the great video.
