I recently created a mock-up of a boat decal in Photoshop that looks like this.
However, for printing purposes, I need to vectorize it. I spent a little while in Illustrator (which I've never used before), and after some fiddling, was able to nearly recreate it.
But you'll notice that the text bevel is missing. I've read through pages and pages of instructions about
Effect > 3d > Extrude & Bevel..., I've sat there on that menu and tried 100 different things, but I can't get anything even close to the Photoshop version. It ends up looking like this:
Is there a way to achieve this in Illustrator? Or, at this point, I'm even willing to ask the bigger question: What is the easiest way to vectorize the Photoshop version, including the bevel?
