Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
For this tutorial we’re going to use a little bit of 3D Studio Max, so make sure you have it and that you know your basics before you start. And there you have exploding text.
This tutorial will illustrate you to design retro style text on a poster. To start, the text has been applied with few colors and with a texture paper as a background. You can also add a extra object – a type writer to stand out your text. Of course, you can add something else in your design.
If you would like to add a nice text effect for your simple background, you can apply this edging effect for your text. It is nice to use this effect to match with some dark backgrounds. The edge can be changed to suit for your design.
Fire text is one of the most classic technique that you can see in Photoshop tutorials. This tutorial is going to show you another version here using some real fire images, mix with filters and blending methods.
It uses a little Illustrator for the text and a lot of Photoshop to burn up the screen! Although it looks complicated the process is actually very straight forward. I used only three or four filters, brushes and of course the Layer Styles. As always, the idea is to play around with Photoshop to get your own unique results.
If you want to be a good designer and would like to invent some new stuff, everything surround you could be a good idea as an initiation for your new design like this tutorial. It proves that a good design does not need to be complicate.
