    You can do it with paint and brush also. Split drop shades and shadows were a part of my bag of tricks when I hand lettered.

    Corel X5 has a new and improved extrude function. Here's one I just did and it took a minute with some color changes.

    Illustrator:

    Type in text
    Effect>3D>Extrude & Bevel
    Get the settings correct (preview until it looks like you want it), hit Okay
    Object>Expand Appearance
    Change colors/strokes on the shapes to match the original (Isolate Selected Group first so you can do so)

    :)
