In this tutorial, I do it personally, so you will find all the layer style panel is Chinese, simply o (head industry conscience ~ o* ~)

In this tutorial, we will use the layer style, filters and other tools to create a dazzling sci-fi art font.

Let’s see the end result first:

1-1. First, we build a new canvas: 1100*410, the background color is filled with black, the font color is set to #d4aa3f, size 170px, placed in the middle of the canvas (font name is: Spy Agency Regular):

1-2, add an internal shadow to the text, set as follows:

1-3, add an internal light to the text, set as follows:

1-4, and then add it to a gradient overlay, set as follows:

After doing the above steps, your present effect should be like this:

2-1, now copy the text layer once, delete the layer styles that you just added, fill the value to 0, and add a bevel and Emboss style to it, set as follows:

2-2, another internal light, set as follows:

Effect is as follows:

3-1, now a new layer, then hold down the CTRL key and select the text selection in the text layer, then select “modify” shrink “, reducing the value set to 4 pixels, and then fill a new layer in any color, the fill value is set to 0, and then began to add a layer style. First, bevel and emboss, set as follows:

3-2, and then an internal shadow, set as follows:

3-3, another gradient, set as follows:

After doing the above steps, you should get the result:

4-1, now we need to add some small diamonds to the middle of the text to modify it, how to draw a diamond? Let’s set the brush first:

4-2, and then we build a new layer, with the brush tool in the middle of the letter painted some white dots, if you fear the bad grip, you can first use the path pen tool, according to the shape of the letter to draw some auxiliary lines, like this:

4-2 and then add white dots to each letter in turn:

4-3, now add some effect to the white spot, make it into a diamond. First, bevel and emboss, set as follows:

4-4, and then the external light, set as follows:

4-5, the last projection:

Well, now your effect should be like this:

5-1. Now merge all the layers except the black background layer (for just in case), it’s recommended to make these layers into groups and then copy the groups and merge them later. We add some effects to the merged layer, first the inner shadow, and the following:

5-2, another internal light, set as follows:

5-3, and then to a color overlay, color color value is #d4b38e, set as follows:

5-4, and then a pattern overlay (here you need to customize a pattern, first find a silk picture, fold a little more, and then go to color, size to 128*128, and then edit the definition of the pattern can be), set as follows:

5-5, the last to the external luminescence:

You get the following effect:

6, copy a layer, just add remove effect, then the implementation of the “filter” fuzzy “Gauss fuzzy” value of 2, and then set the layer blending mode to soft light effect as follows:

7-1, and then copy a layer, remove the effect, put the copy layer to the top, and then execute the ctrl+shift+U, and then implement the filter “filter library” twisted “ocean ripple”, set as follows:

7-2. Add a Gauss blur, 1–1.5 pixels to the new layer, and then change the blending mode to overlay. The opacity is set to 50%, and the following effects are obtained:

8-1, in this step, we need to add some small floating stones to the picture. How do you paint these floating little things? Let’s customize a brush first. First, create a canvas, 30*30 can, fill the black, and then edit the definition of brush preset, click in the pop-up click OK, we will customize a good brush. Then we set the brush parameters, spacing 190%, size jitter 70%, angular jitter 100%, scatter 630%. After setting up, a new layer, began to add small stones to the screen, this can be added according to their own feeling, brush can adjust the size at any time. After the painting, the implementation of Gauss fuzzy, as long as 0.2-0.5 pixels can:

8-2, add a slope and relief effect to the stone, set as follows:

Using PS to create science fiction fonts

8-3, and then add a gradient overlay to the small stones, set as follows:

Using PS to create science fiction fonts

8-3, give it a projection, look more like floating on the top:

The following results are obtained:

9, now we need to add some small stones showed the blooming from the center outward radiation, make the picture look more three-dimensional, the basic method is to copy a layer of rock layer, the effect is removed, then add a mask, wipe the outside part of the upper left corner of the removal, then the implementation of the “filter” fuzzy “movement” to adjust the fuzzy value according to their feelings, I set here is 48, this part of the upper left corner of the light came out, and then the other three direction light, get the following results:

10-1, copy a text layer, put the top, remove the layer style, and then implement “filter” blur “motion blur”, set the distance of 93 pixels, and then set the layer blending mode to point light, opacity 35%, get the following effect:

10-2, or copy a layer of text layer on top, to remove the layer style, then add a levels adjustment layer (only the layer adjustment layer), set as follows:

10-3, implement “filter” blurred “Gauss fuzzy”, as long as 0.2-0.4 pixels can be, and then add it to an internal light, set as follows:

Using PS to create science fiction fonts

10-4, at this time the layer blending mode to soft light and opacity to 30% (according to their own feeling, get the following effect adjustment):

11, create a new layer, and using the selection tool select the entire screen, then the foreground color is set to #db92b5, the background color is set to #000000, the implementation of the “filter” rendering “clouds”, and then put the layer blending mode to soft light and obtained results are as follows (then if you feel dissatisfied, may press “ctrl+F” button to adjust the picture):

12, create a new layer and fill it with the color #157ba5, it will be changed to mixed mode color, opacity to 15%; then, duplicate the text layer on the top of the total, disable the outer glow effect, and then create a new layer, copy the text layer and the blank layer merge, then the new layer set the blend mode to color dodge, opacity 65%, get the following effect:

13, now we can turn on the light effect package, and we can choose the light effect that we like. We can create the picture we want by color filtering, curve, hue / saturation, etc.:

In the process of doing, the original author did not write the stone production process in detail, this is my own way out, there should be a better way than this, I hope someone who knows can share.

This is my final picture:
