From this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to create colorful and catchy graffiti.
Let’s start with a general background on which we type text using the tagsxtreme font. In the layers panel on the layer with the text, right-click and select rasterize type / rasterize the text.
Create the gradient we need or if there is one that you like, then choose it.
Ctrl + click on the thumbnail of the text layer to select it. Now draw a gradient across the text from top to bottom.
Next, without removing the selection, create a new layer and are already working with it.
Choose Edit> stroke (Layer style> Stroke). And set the specified data: Size – 2 pixels., Position – Outside, color – gray.
Then choose Filters> blur> gaussian blur (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur).
Set the blur radius on the same layer with the stroke 0.8 pix.
Now merge the layer with graffiti and stroke in one. Stand on the top and press Ctrl + E.
Again, load the selection around the text (Ctrl + click on the icon).
Add a stroke again, only now in black.
Edit> stroke (Layer style> Stroke). And set the specified data: Size – 2 pixels. (possible and more), position – Outside, color – black.
It looks good! Now add a shadow.
Duplicate the graffiti layer.
With active selection, fill the copy with black.
Move the color layer above black in the layers palette. Move the black letters slightly down and to the left.
And as a final touch, we will set the background, which will draw a gradient and add a certain texture. Change the layer with the text overlay mode Hard lightHard light. See how the text merged nicely with the background, as if it was actually drawn!
