Today I decided to experiment with Adobe Illustrator’s Perspective tool by building a pixel Mario and making him look 3D. Each square is a separate shape manipulated to look like 3D. the text at the top is a 3D effect I used to make it look 3D. I began this as a new birthday invitation design and wanted to see what i could do to make it look 3D without actually using 3D software. I think the drop shadow helps.
