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 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.
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.
This is a strong and eye-catching text effect, though relatively simple to create. We will use techniques including bevel and emboss styles, pattern overlays, and combining different techniques to mock-up the text into a related background.
