I've been asked to replicate the style of some existing graphics, and I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly how they were done. My Illustrator skills are pretty rudimentary, so I'm wondering if anyone out there can tell me how it works.




What I need to know is how to get that 3-D effect. I i think "extrude and bevel" is the trick I'm looking for, but no matter what I do, I can't get it to look exactly like this. Worse yet, when I use the extrude/bevel effect, I lose my fill, and if I try to add fill, I lose the extrude/bevel effect.

Can anyone out there give me a simple tutorial on how to do this?
