Castro Script

I was looking for something over at YouTube and I found this drawing site and one of the videos was for making Name Art. I took the idea and used PSP to create name art similar to what I saw in the video. You can see the Name Art video here. The YouTube channel is Draw So Cute. When I learn to use my Pen Tool I would love to make some of her cute chibi-style characters.

For my name I used text size 72 with color black. I duplicated the layer, flipped it, and moved it to mirror the first layer, then merged the two layers together.

To add the colors, I used the Magic Wand Tool to select inside the spaces where I wanted to add color, expanded the selection by 2 pixels, added a new layer below the black text and filled with color. Repeat the process for adding color to more spaces. The three colors I used are #00A0C6 (blue), #00BD13 (green), and #C00000 (red). After all the colors are added, I applied Meadow Studio`s Coconutice Clear Glass (for SuperBladePro). I duplicated the iced colors layer and changed the blend mode on the duplicate layer to hard light to make the colors brighter.

I added a drop shadow to the black text layer of 2, 2, 25, 3, black.

I also made an avatar-sized image and rotated it 90 degrees left and another at 90 degrees right. I think it looks like some kind of tribal art.

And I also placed one on top of the other and now it kind of looks like an alien creature lol.

If you have a go at this challenge I would love to see the names you create!

Love it. The colors are wonderful. I actually have a light table the I have had for years. I use to own a small Printshop back, way back in the day. It will be fun to try this at home and then I can scan it into psp when I get up and running.
Fun project!. I look forward to playing.
Hugs, Jossie

I just had to try this, it looked like so much fun!
I used the same colors as timber.  It is amazing how different each name looks.  I have loops and tails in my name so it is quite different.

After I did my name I duplicated it and mirrored it.  Then I tried one where I put them back to back.  I think this technique would make a good frame or border.

Thanks for sharing this timber!

Wow, Judy, your name turned out great!  Having letters with loops and tails is a little more challenging but it makes a more dramatic effect, I think.  I love the duplicated and mirrored tag!  It looks so "tribal" to me.

Thanks so much  for giving this technique a play, Judy, I sure did enjoy seeing your results!

Well, I had to make do with what I could. I used EC4000 Glass and added a simple Noise effect using PSP8. I will have to try this one again, for sure! :-]
