Broken Page by Vegeta897 Broken Page by Vegeta897
I made this entirely in GIMP. No 3D software or any other software was used. Took about 6 hours. All the shading on the edges was hand-done, picking the right brightness/darkness based on its angle. Would have been heck of a lot easier if I had modeled this in a 3d program, but I like the challenge.

It's a PNG with alpha channel, and all the shading is actually semi-transparent white and black, so this image can be reposted on any site regardless of its page background color. Go ahead and open the image in a new tab, and you can see it on a white background, for example.

Here's a WIP image of all the lines I drew to create the 3d effect: [link]

In case you're interested, here's a WIP shot: [link]
Drew the shapes of the cracks and pieces, copied and scaled down slightly, then connected the corners. But the shading was the really time consuming part. For every edge, I estimated the value to fill it with, from white to black. [link]
Then I added a rather simple drop shadow, with some adjustments.
After that, it was a lot of cleanup work for edges that were sharp or messy.
