Transcript:

Creating a completely custom from scratch fine effect may sound like a daunting task, but it is much less complicated than it might seem and the task becomes even more simplified when you put some high-quality resources to use resources that you can then customize and alter. So you still end up with something that is unique to you and your project. Today, we’ll be taking a look at how to create a Japanese brush font text effect in Adobe Photoshop, So let’s start by creating a paint brush stroke. Photoshop brush, important image of painted brush strokes. Ideally, you want them to be longer with tapered and textured edges, turn the image of black and white by going to image adjustments desaturate and then go ahead and darken those strokes by going to image adjustments, brightness contrast and bring up the contrast to 100 and then bringing down the brightness to negative 150 Repeat, this step until your paint Strokes are a nice, solid black. Select your paint strokes by going to a select color range and then clicking on the black paint. Bring the fuzziness all the way up to 200 and then hit. OK, create a colorful layer set to black. The color fill layer will automatically take the shape of the selection through its layer mask, which is handy because now we can edit our color fill mass to refine the brush stroke. However, we want You can even hand paint. Some added stroke and paint splatter details yourself, however. I’m just going to keep it simple and go ahead and smooth out the edges of the paint stroke by double clicking and choosing a select and mask. I’m going to go ahead and set the smooth to 9 the contrast to 24% and the shift edge to negative 30% Your settings may vary, but we don’t want to lose too much of that streaky brush texture, so be mindful of that, finally crop down your paintbrush stroke and go to edit define brush preset name your brush and you are done. You’ll want to make as many brush strokes as possible. But alternatively, you can also download a set of pre-made brush strokes that come on a transparent background or a premade brush pack. That is all ready to go. Whatever works best for you and your project. We can now move on to creating our Japanese inspired text effect. The first step is optional, choose a font that is similar in the structure to the structure. You want your text to have in this case? The Japanese brush font little samurai type out your word or phrase, we can use this as somewhat of a template when we are placing down our brush strokes. Next, you’ll want to prepare all your resources create or import your brushstroke brushes or have your brushstroke images with a transparent background and a folder nearby so you can drop or paint them as needed. I’ll be using at least Brushstroke peonies found on in vital elements. Calm now. It’s just a matter of combining different brush strokes to make different letters. Let’s start with an easy one. Mm, drag and drop your strokes to match up with the three lines that make up the lower part of the M, using our text as a guide, make sure and use different strokes for each line, you want to try and avoid a patterns and repetition, then go ahead and place a fourth line going through the upper portion of the other three lines, and there you have an M. I suggest grouping all of these strokes into their own group, naming the group of the letter they create, trust me. This will help you out later on when you have a million layers full of paint, brush strokes that seemingly all look at the same, you can use the paintbrush and eraser tool to add or take away detail from each line to add further fine-tuning and variation also remember to flip the lines vertically and horizontally and to adjust both their height and width to avoid illegal look of again, repetition, and to get things to fit, just right, you can use the warp transform mode to create and match curves and again to fit these strokes to match the template text as much as possible or as much as you need it to do these steps over and over until all of your letters are created you. You might be wondering well, how do. I change the color of the text. Go ahead and change the color of the text by adding a color fill layer and clipping it into your master group, the group holding all of your letters, you can also go ahead and fill in any sparse spots quickly and easily by creating a new layer below all of your text layers and painting it using a solid white brush. This will help your pate ropes. Look, Fuller. If that is indeed, the look you are going for, and that’s about it, you can whip up these painted letters in a matter of minutes, and if you find yourself reaching for this kind of text effect fairly often go ahead and create the whole alphabet save in a PSD file and you have officially created your very own pre-made, so if you’d liked this video and would like to see even more, go ahead and hit that like button, subscribe if you aren’t already and don’t forget to click the little bell icon to be notified of any and all new, inspiring videos, and if you are looking to learn even more, why not check out some of the other excellent tutorials that invite or touch plus has offer?
