Detailed Facebook 3D Icon Photoshop Tutorial

This tutorial will show you a very simple way to create your own Facebook 3D detailed icon. All you need for this tutorial is:

01. Start out by creating a new document and filling the background with any color or picture. Then select the Type tool from the toolbar and type in the letter f. Try to choose a font that is similar to Facebook’s own f and use a blue color for the letter. In this tutorial we use Franklin Gothic font.

03. Take the Type tool and create a new f with exactly the same size and font. Move it on top of the 1st f but be sure that the previous f would show from either one of sides. Now go again to Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay and set some gradient on your f. Do not press OK yet.
