In this tutorial we will learn how to create a nice and fun text effect in Photoshop. You will learn some interesting techniques in this tutorial so let’s start.
Program: Photoshop CS5
Estimated Time: 25 – 30 mins
Now let’s have a look at the final results:
Open your photoshop and create a new file with 1000Px Width and 750px height.
Now select the “Paint Bucket Tool” and Fill the background with # feece2.
You can also add some pattern to the background.
Now create a new layer, for this click on layer> New> Layer. Then select one of the banner brushes and use it on our background with color # ea8f62.
Create another layer, and this time select one of the urban brushes and use it on the side with the same color.
Now select the “Text Tool” and add the first letter. Make sure your text color is # 422901.
Alright, now we will add a bit of “drop shadow” to our text. And for this click on Layer tab> Layer style> Drop Shadow. As we have selected dark brown color for our text so we will choose a lighter brown color for the shadow. I’m going to use this # e2b88e.
Now add the drop shadow keeping the setting same as the image.
Now let’s decorate our text. First right click on the text layer and rasterize it. Then select the “Rectangular Marquee Tool” and select a small area of the text.
Click on the foreground color and make sure its # f26d7d.
Now select the “Paint Bucket Tool” and fill the text area.
Select the “Move Tool” and simply move it a bid away from the text.
Now click on Layer> Layer style> Stroke. And add some black stroke.
Once again select the “Rectangle marquee Tool” and select a small area of the text. And this time fill it with # ffffff.
Now again select the “Move Tool” and move the selected area.
Now simply use some basic brushes to decorate it more using different colors. You can also use various custom shapes if you want.
Repeat the same process and create other letters.
Create a new layer, for this click on Layer> New> Layer. Now select the splatter brushes with color # ffffff.
Now change the blending mode of the above layer to “Overlay” and we are done.
You can choose whatever color you like. Here’s some samples.
