In this tutorial I wanted to take a look at a couple of techniques for an exploding text effect.
In this tutorial, this will show you the steps to create this Trasparent Text Effect, mixing with Fresh Grass Texture and Cloud Brushset. You can use the text effect in a wide range of occasions – such as website header background, part of a natural themed design.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to make 6 different effects using just layer styles. But, we just focus on the golden text. It uses an Outer Bevel on top of a fat Stroke to create the highlights. Then when we place the other layer on top they come together to make a lovely gold effect!
In this tutorial, it will show you how to take command of layer blending modes and masks, and employ simple but highly effective tricks to generate light sources, shadows and add depth to your work. This style is a bit special, as lots of art elements have been added.
It may be difficult for you to pick a suitable text effect for space. However, this retro text effect is implemented using brushes and layer style settings so that you can follow this easily and adjust the color to suit for different purpose backgrounds.
