This video tutorial explains how to create a 3D plastic bottle with a label, using Adobe Illustrator CS6. The activity involves downloading an image of a bottle which can be used to trace around with the pencil tool. A label is also created and the traced line of the bottle is revolved to form a 3D image. The label is then wrapped around the bottle.
In the video, I create a basic label but more time can be spent to create a packaging label that includes things such as product information, ingredients, manufacturing location, price, and a barcode. You can view the video below or alternatively view it on YouTube by clicking here.
