Create fancy text in photoshop

In this lesson, you will learn how to create a simple brush, and then, changing its settings, create a great, fancy text effect.
The final result.


Step 1. So let’s start by creating a brush. Create a new document with a size of 230×230 pixels, and draw a circle that matches the document using the tool Oval selection (Elliptical Marquee Tool), fill it with any color, then press Ctrl + D to get rid of the selection, you can also use the tool Ellipse (Ellipse Tool), instead of the Elliptical Marquee Tool.

Double click on the layer with a circle to add a layer style (Add a layer style).
Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay). Change the Style (Style): Radial (Radial) and Scale (Scale) to 120%, then click Gradient to open the gradient editor.

We need 3 colors to create the gradient, # e9e9e9, # 636363 and # b3b3b3 which will be between them. Make sure the color of b3b3b3 is at 60%.

If we click on a point of color # b3b3b3, then we will have 2 more small points, one to the left of it and the other to the right. Click the dot to the right to change its location to 55%.

Next, change the location of the point to the left by 50%.

Now that the gradient is complete, click OK to close the gradient editor, and while the Layer Style window is still open, click on the circle to move the Gradient as in the image below.

When you are satisfied with the result, click OK. Then go to Menu Editing–> Define Brush (Edit -> Define Brush Preset) and enter a name for the brush.

Step 2. Create a document with a size of 1024 * 768, set the foreground color to # a6a301, and the background color to 486024, then draw Radial gradient (Radial Gradient) from the center of the document to any of the corners.

Open the paper texture (which you can download in the resources section) and place it in the main document over the background, then go to Image-> Correction-> Hue / Saturation (Image-> Adjustments-> Hue / Saturation), and change the Saturation to -100.

Change Blend Mode (Blend Mode) to Soft light (Soft Light).

Click the icon at the bottom of the layers palette, Create a new fill or adjustment layer and select Hue / Saturation (Hue / Saturation).

Change the Hue value to -10, and the Saturation value to -66.

Open the following texture and place it on top of all layers, then change the Blend Mode (Blend Mode) to Multiplication (Multiply). That’s it, we’re done with the background!

Step 3. Now you need to write the text using the color # 6f500c. The font used in the lesson Brie light size 250 pixels. You may need to change the values ​​to avoid overlap.

Double click on the text layer to Add layer style (Add a layer style) Shadow (Drop Shadow). Clear the Use Global Light checkbox, then change the Angle to -36. Also, change the Distance to 18, the Spread to 15, and the Size to 35.

The text should gain depth.

Now, we will change the Brush settings created in the first step. Open the settings panel Brushes (Brush) Window-> Brush (Window -> Brush), and change the settings as shown below:
Brush Print Form (Brush Tip Shape):

Form Dynamics (Shape Dynamics):

Scattering (Scattering):

Color dynamics (Color Dynamics):

You can experiment with the values ​​if you want, especially if you use a different font or font size.

Step 5. Go back to the source document, right-click on
text layer, choose the command Create work path (Create Work Path).

Set the foreground color to # a7a400, the background color to # 5a5919, activate the tool Outline selection (Direct Selection Tool). Create a new layer on top of all layers and name it “Leaves”.

Right-click on the work path to Perform a stroke (Stroke Path).

Choose a brush from the drop-down menu, make sure that in the Simulate pressure (Simulate Pressure) is not a tick.

This will be a leaf stroke.

Step 6. Activate the 27 pixel Brush tool and change its settings as shown in the image below:
Brush Print Form (Brush tip Shape):

Form Dynamics (Shape Dynamics):

Scattering (Scatter):

Color dynamics (Color Dynamics):

Create a new layer on top of all layers and call it “Roses”. Set the foreground color to # f49e9c and the background color to # df0024. Repeat the process Run strokes (Stroke Path) to create a new brush path.

Change the blending mode of the layer (Blend Mode) “Roses” to Lightening basics (Color Dodge), it will give the illusion of scattered roses, on green leaves.

Step 7. Now download the Brushes from the Resources section. Create a new layer under the text layer and name it Sparks. Set the foreground color to # fef99d.

Again, do the same process. Run strokes (Stroke Path), this brush with sparkles. This will give a greater fantasy effect.

Now, activate the tool Eraser (Eraser Tool) to get rid of the extra sparks. Just use a soft round brush of any suitable size, and erase the sparks that you consider unnecessary.

Step 8. The last thing we do is add a simple green highlight behind the text. Set the foreground color to # a7a400 again, then create a new layer under the “Spark” layer and name it “Green Background”. Using a large soft round brush, paint the background around the text. It is necessary to paint over the largest part of the background, but still, not all.

Change the Blend Mode (Blend Mode) “Green Background” to Overlap (Overlay). That’s all our text is ready!

That’s what we did. Hope this tutorial was helpful for you!
