Making a Word Art for Valentine’s Day
Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
Valentine’s Day is coming. You may want to make something special for your lover. In this tutorial, we will combine Filter Forge and Photoshop to create a wood textured 3D text effect with a simple red glass heart.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to create some flawless patterns, which we will use to create some amazing backgrounds that you can use for your desktop, websites, posters…whatever you want. The great thing about patterns is that once you get comfortable with them, they can be an important part of your Photoshop arsenal.
In this tutorial, we will create a realistic 3D text scene with desert background using Photoshop with a little help from Illustrator for the 3D text. Sometimes, it is nice to put the text with different natural backgrounds. To do this, you need to have medium to advanced knowledge of Photoshop in order to complete this tutorial.
For some dim backgrounds, it is required a special sharp and lighting effect to match with. You can have a try on this idea, in which, some blurred colors have been applied on particular direction in order to stand out the text.
For dark backgrounds, you can use glazing effect to stand out your text. It is a bit easier to create this effect rather than others as most of the steps can be straightly followed this tutorial through adjusting the setting in blending options. Color and brightness of the text can be designed to fit your design.
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.
