Hi. My name's Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to use the bevel and emboss tool in Illustrator. And so what I'm going to first do is I'm going to go and pick a shape. And you can select whatever you want, but I'm going to select the polygon tool. I'm just going to draw a polygon. All right. Now what you do is you go to effect, and you go to 3-D, and extrude and bevel, which is essentially the same thing. And you can really pick what to do at this point but you're just going to want to check preview, so you can actually see what it looks like on your page. So, you can do all sorts of fun options. I'll show you a couple. Whoops, and yeah, I can take a second depending on how big your document is. And you can change your angles. So if you want it to be 20, and it'll start to really just like bevel and emboss. And that is how you use bevel and emboss tool or extrude and emboss tool in Illustrator's title. My name is Alex Cecilio, and thank you very much.
