Tutorial Showcase #17

Sun Jul 5, 2015, 11:35 AM
DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!

Theme for this time is:

Summer Text Effects

3D Summer text

Text1 by vanmall

This first tutorial by Tony Aube is a great example of a great summer text - beach, palms and umbrellas - awesome. In this tutorial you can learn how to put a picture in your text and how to use photoshop 3D features. Overall this tutorial is quite long but also full of details. Well explained and easy to follow.

Hay Bale typography

Text2 by vanmall

Another 3D text effect tutorial but this time a bit more complicated. This hay bale tutorial teaches you how to make a cool hay text effect using photoshop and mini bridge. This tutorial is also very well explained and therefor quite long. So if you want to try it yourself then find some time and I'm sure that you won't be disappointed at the end of it.

Paper text

Text3 by vanmall

This tutorial teaches you how to make a best of photoshop vector features like pen tool, custom shapes and so on. Also a very good and well explained 3 page long tutorial. Using this effect you can make some awesome paper effects for not only your texts but for everything else as well.

Tasty text

Text4 by vanmall

Who doesn't love sweet and tasty looking texts. In this tutorial you can combine some tasty pictures to make this beautiful text effects. As with first two tutorials, this one also uses some 3D magic to make this typography even better.

Bubble gum text

Text5 by vanmall

And here is the last tutorial for this time. This is a very long and a bit more advanced tutorial on how to make a cool text effect. Since you have to make the text effect from scratch, it might be a bit more difficult. But if you want to try something challenging, then this tutorial is for you.

And this is it for this time. I hope you liked it and if you have some ideas for next time then please be sure to let us know.

Hi! I was just wondering... which equipment do I use to make 2d digital artwork? I'm more of a traditional artist myself. I would LOVE to dabble into digital art, I'm really inspired actually. I know I have to use photoshop and coral. I'm just confused as to what equipment is best? Laptop... tablet... notebook? With babies around its doesn't make the decision any easier. :p :o

Barnes-Daishaun15 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2016  Student Artist
I need help. I tried asking help from other digital artists and I get ignored by most artists that are out there. I thought that this group can be helpful enough to get me started on what I need to do. Can anyone teach me what should I do on what art program I'm wanting to use.

There should be a Full Complete Tutorial if there is any.

I just need help Getting Started, what should I do, which tools I need to use and how many layers do I need to make a full base form and coloring and cel shading my own Dragon Ball Z character.
