Creating a comic text effect in Photoshop is not very easy but it is, from my point of view, a nice addition to any comic book illustration. It has some annoying steps, I am talking about all those layer styles but if you download the PSD file you will not have to bother about that problem. So this comic text along with a nice comic brush can add value to any photo turned into a comic illustration. I've used a halftone pattern in creating this text effect. I am curious to see your results, as you are always such creative people.
Comic book style has always been one of my favorite Photoshop styles. I like the fact that can be used in all kind of designs from vintage retro design to let's say cartoon kids design because it is so versatile. In today's tutorial I will show you how to create an interesting comics text effect using some simple layer styles. You can use any comics font, any color theme you want and you will obtain for sure cool results.
To create a Comic Book Effect in Photoshop we have to mix all sort of filters and blend them together to obtain that well known sketch effect. You can of course use a simple Graphic Pen Filter or a Halftone Pattern Filter, but if you want to obtain a more complex and realistic comic effect you have to use more than one Photoshop Filter. And to complete the image we'll use Comic Brushes and/or add text using a Comic Font. The Old Paper Texture used in the final step helps us obtain that authentic vintage look.
These Comic Photoshop brushes are very useful when you are trying to create a comic book effect.

I am an Antagonist he says and we say he is also a complete artist with lot of imagination and perfect digital painting techniques. Vitaly S. Alexius tries and succeeds in my opinion to create quality material in different art areas such as photography, digital art or writing. He writes poems inspired by most of his digital art works and even started his own sci-fi novel - Chronoscape. He also stared a bold project, his own comic book named Romantically Apocalyptic. But the main reason of this interview is because of his amazing digital art work. He defines a new concept in his art named - "Dreaminism, the sense of shifted reality realized in the split second before the waking." He describes visually the chaos: apocalyptic scenery, a world of war and terror, his sky is always dark and unpredictable. Terrific creatures, angels of death and burned cities are all part of Vitaly S. Alexius dynamic world. Let's discover some interesting details about this talented artist!
