The Snag Depot ~ Tuts
Bevel Text ~ 1
First bevel lesson
We will use a chunky font for this lesson. I’m going to use Cream n Sugar.
Choose your favorite colors for your text (or gradients/pattern). I’m going to use purples to match the text here. I’m using a darker color for my foreground.
Font: (any chunky one you prefer), size: 60 (you can highlight the number and add your own size), Stroke (foreground) dark, Fill (background) light, width: 1, antialias checked.
You should get something like this:
Add this bevel:
Smoothness: 43, Depth: 17, Ambience: -34, Shininess: 15, Angle: 115, Intensity: 53, Elev: 64, Width: 32, Bevel type: No. 2 (round)
You should have something like this:
Now you only need to add a drop shadow. I used these settings:
Vert & Horiz: 2, Opacity: 53, Blur: 5, Color: A darker hue of your text color.
You should end up with something like this:
or increase the Vert & Horiz to about 8:
Save as usual and use often!
Hope you enjoyed this and learned something a bit new. Don’t forget to try gradients & patterns too.
Next bevel lesson coming soon.
