How to Create an Ice Text Effect withPhotoshop
Oct 13th inText Effects byGianluca Giacoppo
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create an ice effect completely from scratch using specialPhotoshop Brushes. Some time ago playing with Photoshopand trying to make an ice effect Idiscovered that "dead trees" can simulate very well the ice's "veins" giving a cool feeling to animage. I'm not going for realism here, but I do like the final effect for this tutorial. I used sometext as reference, but this effect can be applied to any shape you want and can add some greatstyle. Let's get started!
Author:Gianluca Giacoppo
My name is Gianluca Giacoppo, I live in Milanoand I'm 23 years old. I'm graduated in IndustrialDesign but I like digital art and web design, that's why I'd like to become a graphic Designer! Ilove to Photoshop images!
Final Image Preview
Take a look at the image we'll be creating. Want access to the full PSD files and downloadablecopies of every tutorial, including this one? JoinPsd Plusfor just $9/month. You can view thefinal image preview below.
To make this image look more interesting I added some snow falling down and some droppingdown from the letters. The first thing to do before opening Photoshop is to install a few Brushsets. If you don't know how to, followthis very good guidewhich tells you how to install extra presets in your Adobe Photoshop.As mentioned, this effect is made from scratch, but I used two useful sets of tree Brushes:thisoneand this one (the set n°17 from the top)from this list. Thank you very much to pixelgratis andVelavan. For the text we'll use a special font calledBerlin Sans FBin Bold version. This tutorial is easy, made with basic techniques, can be done with Adobe Photoshop CS2 or superior and you don't need a pen tablet, a mouse is good enough. OK, now let's get working!
Step 1
Create a document of the size you want, staying near to 1600 pixels by 1200 pixels, 300 dpiresolution (if you are going to print it) or 72 dpi if you're going to publish it on the Web. We canuse 72 dpi to keep our document tidy and work faster. Set the Foreground color to black #000000
and then press Alt + Delete to fill the "Background" layer with a black color. Our "Background"layer become black with a touch! Now choose #ff0000 as our Foreground color and type some text with the Horizontal Type Tool(T) using the settings shown below and the font we previously downloaded. We're using a redcolor just to create some contrast with the black background and the white effects that will comenext.
Step 2
 Now double-click on the Layer thumbnail (or go to Layer > Layer Style > Stroke...) and choose#ff0000 for the color and set the Stroke at 15 pixels. This way we're making the text morerounded and fatty to avoid rough edges.
