In this tutorial we’ll draw cool text in Photoshop.
At the beginning, create a new document. 300×500 pix fill it with color # 1a142c.
After that create a new layer, select the tool Elliptical Marquee Tool (oval selection), create a selection, as in the image below and fill it with another color # 6d56b2.
Deselect Ctrl + D and apply Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter-Blur-Blur Gaussian) with the following settings:
Change the layer opacity to 70%
Ok, we are done with the background, and now let’s start creating a text effect! Select Horizontal type tool (horizontal text) and write the letter P typeface KabelBd any color.
After that apply the following blending modes for the layer with the text:
Drop Shadow (Shadow)
Outer Glow (Outer Glow)
Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay)
The result can be seen in the figure below.
After that, right-click on the layer in the layers palette and select Copy Layer Style (Copy Layer Styles)
Under the letter layer P write another letter H.
Then right-click on the layer in the layers palette and select Paste Layer Style (Paste Layer Styles).
The result should be as follows:
Add more letters on the same principle.
Good looking, right? To complete the lesson, we will add several figures to the background. Now, using Custom shape tool (Free-form) select the shape of a star, as in the picture below, a gallery of standard shapes.
Add this star to the back.
After that set the fill to 0% and apply the layer style Stroke (Stroke)
Your picture should look like this:
Add more stars on the same principle. And your text will look something like this:
Our lesson is over!
