Block lettering help.

I have a graphic image

I want to revamp this, so could someone point me to a tutorial or writeup on how to create the letters like that Block, shadowed with the sunbust behind them...


RE: Block lettering help.

OK, well I know how to do some of it. I can get the text in the curve, and I can get some shadowing done... but he couple attempts I have made have not been successful at achieving the same look.


RE: Block lettering help.

First off, you need to identify the font used.

Once you know what your font is, set the background to black, your line size to 2 or 3 (since that outline looks pretty fat) and your foreground to that funky gradient peach color. Then type your word, apply your curve. Now duplicate that layer and size it slightly smaller and behind the one layer to get the block look, merge the layers and apply the shadow and voila! you're done!


RE: Block lettering help.

Thanks... will give that a try.... (now just have to figure out the font.. :) )
