Hi Guys, Today we will create a fun aqua Blue Fancy Glow Text effect. In this tutorial we will use different techniques and blending options to create the stylish fun text. So let’s see what we need to create this.
Let’s Check out our Final Result:
Open Photoshop and create a new file with 800px width and 600px height.
For the background we will use the grunge images I’ve mentioned in the resources section. Simply copy and paste the image.
Now click on ‘Layer styles’ from the layer panel (bottom right corner) and click on Color Overlay. Change the color to # 30637e and blending mode to ‘Hard Light’.
Create a new layer, then select ‘Pen Tool’ and create a random shape. Right click on the path and select ‘Make selection’, fill it with # 000000 using ‘Paint bucket Tool’.
Repeat the same process and create some more random shapes with color # 000000.
Now group up the above shapes and then duplicate the group. Change the color using Layer styles> Color Overlay with color # 003652.
Now move the above group a bit and reduce the opacity to 70%.
Select the ‘Text Tool’ and add text with color # 00d8ff.
Now click on layer styles> Satin and keep the settings same.
Now add more text with color # d7d7d7, use ‘cocktail bubbly’ font this time.
Now click on Layer styles and add Inner Glow, Gradient and Drop shadow.
Now add some bubbles, using the rounds brush set mentioned above. Use different colors and sizes.
Create a new layer and select ‘Pen Tool’. Now create a path on the first text, then right click on it and select ‘Stroke Path’ using 2px hard round brush with # e7e7e7 foreground color.
Repeat the same process and randomly create some more paths along the first text alphabets. I’ve switched off the Second Text layer so you can clearly see where I’ve used the brush.
Now click on Layer styles> Outer Glow and keep the settings same as below.
Create a new layer and select a brush with foreground color# f7f7f7. Use it on the curves of the text.
Now add the outer glow same settings as above, or you can simply right click on the above layer and select ‘Copy Layer Style’ and then right click on the current layer and select ‘Paste Layer Style’.
Switch on the second text layer and then create a new layer and select brush tool and use it randomly on the second text to add shine. Then paste the layer styles same way as we did above to get the outer Glow.
And we are done; Our fancy glow text effect is ready. You can play around with the background. Simply change the blending mode of the background color overlay.
Hope you guys enjoyed it. Do share your feedback and suggestions. I’ll be back with some more fun stuff, till then have fun!
