    How to create a smooth embossed logo on curved surface?

    Iain Taylor

      Hi, I am trying to create a realistic model of a beer bottle and have been struggling with wrapping/projecting/extruding on curved surfaces in order to create an embossed logo on the body of the bottle. I have managed to work around these issues and get a model I am reasonably happy with, however I would like to create a smooth emboss like the Anheuser Busch logo in the photograph below.

       

      I have considered using lofted surfaces, drafted extrudes, fillets etc, however, with intricate geometry I can't seem to find any solution. Someone suggested using displacement maps..?

       

      Any suggestions for how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated!
