Blender gave me a whole different learning curve that made me use another part of my brain that I dont have to use to often. When working with 3d there are many different angles and views positions for things to be in so it created some challenge. The basic way in which i created this was placing a mesh circle onto the floor and extruded the shape up, and then extruded some more along with shaping it. this was a repetitive process of about 6 times. Then add text and can extrude that out no more then an inch closer to half and inch. Move the light around to cast the shadows and then render the image and there you have it.
