Playing with type for a project.

How you get the texture on the letters?
mmhMM mmhMM MMhmm
@Nick Slater Hope this screengrab helps: http://cl.ly/3l2M1e2Z0A3X1c360213 Essentially just select the area I want the shadows and then use various brushes to add in the textured shadow. It's down and dirty since I'm just playing around... If I end up going this route I may re-do in illustrator.
SICK!!!!! Man I need to learn how to do that stuff. I can't get the texture around the letters to give them that rough look.
I was gonna ask the same thing as @Nick Slater. This looks great btw.
@Nick Slater & @Steven Schroeder
I've got a magical little trick for you! See attached screengrab step by step: http://cl.ly/1l3V0l3K0y0V2h2q1c42
It takes some playing with and I find that scaling the vector image up SUPER big works best. Have fun... just don't use it too often!
What @Drew Roper said.
Thank you kind sirs! :D
Oh I wont! I just think it is cooler to have an understanding of how you do it. It makes you have more of appreciation of what you do... Not saying I don't because your work is boss sauce!
Yeah, I understand how to roughen, it was more of the stipling shading I was interested in. I was refering to Nick's first post(that you explained). I tried it on something else I made earlier this year, but the way I did it didn't yield the same results(I used illustrator and scatterbrush). Yours has such a nice gradient effect on it. It's always cool to find designers willing to help!
awesome, love the shadowing along with the flow of letters
@Greg Christman Any quality PSD brush sets you'd recommend? Specifically for work like this. I'm trying to broaden the collection. Find myself constantly going back to the same ones. BTW, great work man!
@Jeff Wheeler To be honest I used standard issue photoshop brushes for this effect. Nothing fancy here!
But, these are some great resources:
Alright, thanks man. Appreciate it.
@Jeff Wheeler No problem. Hope some of those links help. I feel like this type of stuff is always just a trial and error type of process. Lots of drawing and erasing.
@Greg Christman Yep, absolutely. Definitely spent my fair share of time doing that.
You simply rock! Simply...
This is beautiful. It's really nice to see more process and explanation of the pixels on Dribbble too :)
Thanks for sharing your technique!
Thanks for showing us that trick. It was very generous. By the way, love the type.
@Greg Christman This is great!
this is totally rad! thanks a bunch for being so generous and sharing your tips too :)
