The letter I drew was base on format I mentioned in my previous post. I upload a graphic post everyday.
I used Paint brush tool to design the outline of the letter and also for the segments

What I had in mind was a 3D letter as N occurs twice in my name but I had to create it my self.
So I used Adobe Illustrator for the out look.

I got the N shape segmented it and expanded the appearance to enable precomposing and colour segmenting.

After that I imported the letter in Png file format to Adobe Photoshop for finishing.
I just wanted to keep it simple and tidy.

In Photoshop I duplicated the layer into 12 different layers and offset it to give a 3D shape.

After that I converted it to a smart object and ensuring equal gaps between each other

For the background I used a linear gradient overlay of white and shade of red

I had to darken the white as I want a representation of light coming from the front view. As regards to the shadow I added.

Then the final result with a light flare and some background adjusting.

Thanks
