Learn how to create graffiti text from scratch in Photoshop! This tutorial will show youhow to use layer styles and finish the effect with a vector-style brick background.
Wait to load the post as it has many pictures and information .
Create a new 1000x500 pixels document. You can do this by going to File > New.
With the background layer selected, use the Paint Bucket tool to fill the layer with #D0CFCF.
Now for the text create a new layer, you can go online and find a font that would best fit your design or for my tutorial I created a rough sketch of how I wanted my text to look and scanned it into my computer. Next, grab your pen tool and make one of the letters. I used the word "Graffiti".
Make a selection from the work path (right-click>Make selection) fill it with any color for now
Rename this layer. In my case I named this layer "G". Duplicate this layer,place this layer underneath the regular layer. Double click this "G Copy" layer so that it brings up the Layer style box and change the color.
Then move the "G copy" layer upward 5px by using your arrow keys and also move it 8 or 9 pixels to the right.
On the original "G" layer add these layer styles, lets start with the Inner Shadow
This is how it should look so far. Go to your "G copy" layer, once you have selected this layer go to Layer>Layer Style>Create Layer. Now select your Burn tool and darken in some areas. Once you have finished that take your Dodge tool and highlight certain parts. Note: The green circle is where I used the Burn tool, the red circle is where I used the Dodge Tool.
While the "G copy" layeris still selected add a Drop Shadow.
Create a new layer and on the "G copy" layer make a selection of it and add a Stroke. Edit>Stroke, place this stroke layer beneath the "G copy" layer.
Create a New Layer and rename it "Squares", grab your selection tool and make some squares fill it with #8cb809
Now we will add the highlight, create a new layer and with your pen tool create the place for the highlighted area. Fill it with #FFFFFF
Erase the unnecessary areas. To do this make a marquee selection of the original "G" and "G Copy" layer (while holding the ctrl+alt key, select the box next to the layer's name) Select>Inverse, then delete while the highlight layer is still selected.
Change this layer to 'Soft Light' and add this layer style (Layer > Layer Style > Inner Shadow).
Repeat these same steps for the rest of your letters
Create a New layer and rename it "cloud". Place this layer beneath the letter layers. Grab your brush tool and use different sizes of circlesto create the cloud. I used the color #e40480. Once finished duplicate this layer
Add these layer styles to the original layer (Layer > Layer Style > Bevel and Emboss).
This is how yours should look.
Create a new layer above the cloud layer and with a #FFFFFF soft round brush place some highlights around the cloud. Make sure the opacity on the brush is very low.
Go to your "Cloud copy" layer and place it underneath the original cloud layer and change the opacity of this layer to 27%. Also maneuver this layer a bit so that the shadow shows.
Create a new layer for the inner cloud grab a hard round brush of different sizes and create a cloud. I used the color #8cb809
Add these layer styles to this layer
Create a new layer and add some shine to this cloud layer with a small soft round brush. I used the smudge tool also to stretch out highlights
Now I will show you how to create the background. First Create a New Document
Grab your rounded rectanlge tool and make a rectangle. The color I'm using is #8cb809 Radius: 21px
Add a Stroke in the layer style panel
Make multiple duplicates of the brick. Note: Make sure to overlap the bricks so that there is no white background showing.
Create a new layer above the bricks and with a 60px #000000 soft round brush apply shadow to the bricks. Change this layer's Opacity to 27%.
Go to Edit>Define Pattern and name it bricks, click ok. Go back to your graffiti document. Create a New Layer underneath your cloud layers. Fill this layer with #FFFFFF. Change this layer Fill to 0%. Add these layer styles
Create a new layer and randomly add highlights to the bricks. I used a soft round brush and the smudge tool to smooth it out.
Now for the light streaks. Create a New layer above your text and grab your pen tool. Prior to making your light streaks set your brush tool to 87px
Once you have created the light streak with the pen tool, right-click the path>Stroke Path (make sure that the 'Stimulate Pressure' box is checked)
Add a Outer Glow
Create another light streak
Create a new layer and add some stars from the brushes you downloaded earlier.
