Multicolored glossy text.

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a glowing text effect from scratch.

Preview result:

Let’s create a new file (File> New) 1920 x 1200px and 72 dpi.
We use Paint bucket Tool (G) (fill), and fill the background with black.

On the new layer, we apply the standard brush , to draw a point in the center of the image. Brush color # 007EC7.

Use the following filter for this layer: Filter> Distort> ZigZag (filter – distortion – zigzag)

Fill (fill) layer – 54%

Next we will choose Line tool (U) (line) and draw three white lines that must be rotated using Free transform (free transformation).

These three layers with white lines should be grouped together. Rasterize it. Apply Filter> Distort> Wave (filter – distortion – wave)

On the same layer apply: Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (filter – blur – blur according to Gauss)

Set the following parameters for the layer by clicking the button on the layers panel: Blending mode (overlay mode) – overlay. Fill (fill) – 44%.

Blending Options> Drop Shadow (blending options – shadow)

Blending Options> Outer Glow (blending mode – external glow)

Make a copy of this layer and select Free transform (free transformation). Rotate the copy in the same way as shown.

Now we have to create a new layer, (Shift + Ctrl + N), apply the standard brush in two colors here (set the main color green, background color blue) (Opacity 10%).

On the next new layer, we will draw again with a standard brush of white color and opacity of 30%.

Layer Options:
Blending mode overlay (blending mode – overlapping)

In the next step, we need a program. Adobe Illustrator.
Using the Pen Tool (P) (pen), draw two intersecting lines of black color.

Now select the Direct Selection Tool (A) (selection), select both lines and apply:
Object> Blend> Blend Options (Object – blend – blending options):

Select the waves from the lines and press CTRL + E. Then go to the program Adobe Photoshop. Press CTRL + V and select Convert to Smart Object (convert to smart object)

Invert the layer with the lines by pressing the buttons. Ctrl + I and change the blending mode to overlap.

Make a copy of the layer and select Free transform (free transform) and rotate the copy as shown below. Apply the settings for the copy layer:
Blending mode – Soft Light (blending mode – soft light)

Add a layer mask, select soft brush small diameter, black and 20% opacity, and paint over some areas, as shown in the figure:

Create text with parameters as shown below:

Layer Options:
Fill (fill) – 0%

Overlay options:
Blending Options> Drop Shadow)

Blending Options> Inner Shadow (internal shadow)

Blending Options> Inner Glow (internal glow)

Blending Options> Bevel and Emboss (embossed)

Blending Options> Bevel and Emboss> Contour (stamping – contour)

Blending Options> Satin (gloss)

Blending Options> Gradient Overlay (gradient overlay)

Gradient options:

Blending Options> Stroke (Stroke)

Create a new layer and small brush With a 50% opacity, create multiple glowing points:

Layer Options:
Blending mode – Overlay (blending mode – overlapping)

Create a copy of the layer:

Create another copy and rotate it with Free transform (free transformation). Blending mode – Normal (Mixing mode is normal).

Create a copy of the layer and apply Filter> Blur> Radial Blur (filter – blur – radial blur)

Blending mode – Overlay (blending mode – overlapping)

Next, we need to select part of the text to create a further flare, while selecting Pen tool (P) (Feather). Create a shape like this:

Now click on the icon of the layer with the text, thereby loading the selection. Shift + Ctrl + I – inversion of the selected area. Click delete.

Layer Options:
Fill (fill) – 19%
Blending mode-Linear Light (blending modes – linear light)

You can see the result in a larger size here.

That’s all. Good luck!
