Create a "Parry Hotter" Text Effect in Photoshop

In this quick tip tutorial we will demonstrate how to create a cinematic "Parry Hotter" Text Effect using the layer styles. Let's get started!


Tutorial Assets

The following assets were used during the production of this tutorial.


Step 1

Make a new .PSD document, size 1000 x 500 pixels, RGB color, 72 dpi. Create a new layer and fill it with a grunge metal texture and colorize this with the color that you desire. Now create the text using this font: Parry Hotter. Use the settings shown in the following pictures. Now rename this text: "Base". Then go in the menu Layer > Layer Styles > Blending Options and use these settings:


Step 2

Duplicate the text and rename it "False 3D". Right click on his layer and click to "Clear Layer Style" or in the Styles Palette click on the first style "Default style (None)" (It's the same thing). Move this layer slightly to left in order to create a false 3D effect. Then go in the menu Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options and use these settings:


Step 3

Duplicate the text "base" and rename it "Bevel". Right click on his layer and click to "Clear Layer Style" or in the Styles Palette click on the first style "Default style (None)" (It's the same thing). Now put this layer above the other layers. In the Blending Options menu on the right set the fill to 0%. Then go in the menu Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options and use these settings:


Step 5

Your text effect is almost completed. Now you have to create "Gradient Map" layer in order to colorize the entire work of the color that you desire. For example, I've chosen the color blue. Finally to make it nicer, I've added some sparkles with simple brushes.
