Clouds Text & Shapes

Clouds Text & Shapes

A quick Photoshop tutorial on the making of an interesting clouds text. Actually, we can make not only the text, but different shapes to. It is very interesting effect for me.

Start with creating a new document sized 1000х500 px, after that select some appropriate colors, for example colors of #3497b6, #97d5e6 and drag a linear gradient.

Ok, then type the text using the Horizontal Text Tool. Write out something like ‘SKY’ with Arial Black font, that comes with Windows. Use following presets for current text layer:

Good, time to create clouds background. Select the Brush Tool to load these brushes to make cloud prints on the canvas. Then create a new layer and make a couple of different cloud prints on the new layer with white color. Don’t forget to reduce the real size of each brush to 90-100 px previously.

The next step, what you need to do to select the text shape. Press Ctrl+Left click on the text layer on the layer thumbnails to do it. Then you can delete text layer because we don’t need it more. Use Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selected area and clear it with pressing Delete button. Deselect chosen area with Ctrl+D.

After that get out the Eraser Tool and a soft round brush and make sharp letters borders softer.

Ok, select the Brush Tool again and add a couple of small size clouds more to bring our letters more realistic view.

After that create a new layer and add a little bit original size brushes on the foreground. Don’t forget to set up opacity for this layer to 25%.
