Coreldraw Tutorial: Create Glossy 3D Cubes



This tutorial will show you how to create a colorful 3D cube...
I recommend CorelDRAW x4 for this tutorial...I have used CMYK color mode as it is default mode in CorelDraw.

Also activate snap to object (Alt+Z)... this will make your lines more accurate....


End result:

this tutorial seems to be written for people who have a good working knowledge of the program you are using.

maybe a few screen shots of where to find the tools you are talking of would make this tutorial more user friendly.
