Creating convincingly realistic designs is not always an easy feat. Certain conditions like layers, shadows, highlights, and colors all add to the overall look of the final outcome. You need to test various combinations, play with it a little bit, until you get what you really want.
But in the end, if the design looks like it’s about to leap off the page, then you know you did a pretty good job. After all, there’s nothing like a 3D effect to wow audiences at first sight.
