How to Write 3D Letters
Give alphabet letters some perspective with a 3-D effect. (colourful letters image by forca from Fotolia.com)

The allure of 3-D is due to perspective, which brings a flat object to life with a sense of depth. Movie technicians have discovered how popular this type of filming is to audiences, who do not seem to mind wearing special glasses to get the full effect of 3-D. Young or not-so-young 3-D movie enthusiasts will enjoy creating their own 3-D effects with the letters of the alphabet, employing the same techniques of perspective.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Draw a block letter "I" on the paper, making the letter approximately 2 inches high and 1 inch wide.

  2. 2

    Draw a dot on the paper 1 inch above and to the right of the letter "I."

  3. 3

    Place the ruler between the upper-left corner of the block letter "I" and the dot and draw a line connecting them. Repeat for each corner.

  4. 4

    Place the ruler 1/2 inch away from every outer and upper right-hand edge of the "I" and draw a line. Erase the lines connecting the corners to the dot.

  5. 5

    Draw a block letter "S" on the paper. Draw a dot on the paper 1 inch above and to the right of the letter. Draw lines leading from the top and bottom corners of the letter to the dot. Use the lines as guides to draw curved depth lines 1/2 inch from the vertical edges of the letter "S."

  6. 6

    Draw a block letter "R" on the paper and draw a dot 1 inch above and to the right of the letter. Connect the dot to the top and bottom corners of the letter. Use the lines as guides to draw curved and straight depth lines on the outside of the letter and in the closed portion of the top section of the "R."

  7. 7

    Draw the remaining letters of the alphabet and create a 3-D effect with the same technique.
