A letter in the form of a broken stone in Photoshop

In this tutorial, we will create a volumetric letter in the form of a broken stone, using a 3D render, several third-party textures and special brushes.

Final result:

Step 1

Create a new document in Photoshop (Ctrl + N) 800×1120 pixels with black background. If you have a CS6 version or higher, create a letter using the extrusion function.

Or use the ready-made rendered at the beginning of the lesson.

Add a mask to the text layer. Chalk brush and brush with soft edges erase the edges, as shown in the screenshot.

Step 2

Open the texture of concrete in Photoshop. Highlight crack tool Rectangular area (Rectangular Marquee Tool) (M).

Copy it to our document. (Ctrl + C / Ctrl + V). In mode Free transform (Ctrl + T) resize the crack and tilt it so that it passes over the middle of the letter S. Create a clipping mask (Ctrl + Alt + G).

Chalk brush erase the edges of the texture on the mask.

Overlay other areas of stone texture on the letter.

Wipe the edges.


Step 3

Open the grass image and select a small area.

Transfer the grass to the main document, reduce it and place it on a letter.

Use a soft eraser to connect the grass with the stone.

Add more grass to the stone.

Step 4

Add fog and particles with special brushes.

You can stop at this stage. Next, we slightly change the color atmosphere with the help of a corrective layer.

Step 5

Create an adjustment layer Selective color correction (Selective Color):

Final result:

Without color correction:
