Create a text effect Spiderman in Photoshop

In this tutorial, I will show you how easy it is to create a “Spiderman” text effect using patterns and layer styles.

The text effect “Spiderman” is part of the “Super Heroes – Photoshop Styles” from my portfolio from the site of Envato Market.

1. Create a background

I’ll show you how to create a background for the final image, but if you want to use your own background, then skip this part.

Step 1

Create a new document and set its size: 850×500 pixels, Resolution (Resolution): 72 pixels / inch and Background Contents (Background content): White (White background).

Step 2

Double click on the background layer in the layers panel to unlock it. Now right-click on this layer and select in the context menu Blending options (Overlay options). Another way to open these options is to select a layer and go to Layer> Layer Style> Blending Options (Layer> Layer Style> Blending Options).

Then add Gradient overlay (Gradient overlay) with these settings:

  • Blend Mode (Overlay mode): Linear burn (Linear dimmer)
  • Opacity (Opacity): 20%
  • Click on the gradient field and make a black and white fill, set the white color to the left and black to the right.
  • Style(Style): Radial (Radial)
  • Angle (Angle): 0 °

Step 3

Add a Pattern overlay (Overlay pattern) with the following settings:

  • Opacity (Opacity): 100%
  • Scale (Scale): 100%

So we created a dark textured background with vignette.
