Lidia Lukianova is an artist and designer with a passion for illustration. Her design work includes all kinds of projects from identity and illustration to lettering and animation.
Lukianova started by flattening the layers into a single image using the flyout menu on the Layers panel.
She then selected the product packaging she wanted from the available presets (3D > New Mesh From Layer > Mesh Preset > Soda).
Lukianova used Orbit the 3D Camera tool in the 3D workspace (Window > Workspace > 3D) to control her view of the can. She set the scene to Current View from the 3D panel (Window > 3D), then dragged in different directions to change her view of the can within the space.
To resize the can, she clicked on it to show the 3D axis. Then she dragged the center of the cube up and down to scale the can the way she wanted.
Lukianova hovered over the red y-axis marker until the yellow circle appeared. Then she dragged to rotate the can to the right for better positioning.
The 3D panel has options to apply a more realistic finish to the product. Lukianova selected Label_Material under the Soda category then adjusted the settings.
Lukianova completed the composition with the light angle. She selected Infinite Light from the 3D panel and moved the knob to change the direction of the light. She then adjusted the color and softened the shadow by moving the slider. When she was happy with the results, she clicked Render.
