Create a Purple Lighting Text Effect
Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
In this tutorial, it will show you the processes of creating a purple lighting text effect in Photoshop. It will use a handwriting font, combine it with nebula and fire textures to form the final effect. We will also be using some selection and image adjustment techniques along the way.
To create a nice golden text effect, you need to choose right font to start with. You can develop your own text effect based on this easily as most of steps are done within blending options. You can also use the same idea to design different color such as silver.
In this tutorial we are going to take some very basic principles of light and shade to make a rather impressive looking text effect. Finally we duplicate the top lighting layer one more time and set it to opacity, then click the Add Layer Mask button on the layers palette again and draw a linear white to black gradient from top left to bottom right. This makes the extra lighting layer fade off as it goes down right.
