Learn how to crteate a horror text effect in Photoshop perfect for the upcoming Halloween. This dark horror text is made out of real human skin with stitches and wounds with a dark room as background. This Photoshop creepy text is perfect for horror movie posters, for Halloween party flyers and so on. You might also want to check out my horror Photoshop movie poster tutorial.

Advertisment

Let's take a quick look at the grunge horror text that we are going to create in Photoshop using blood textures, stitched skin stock images, adjustment layers and so on. You can create the stitched effect using stitch and scar brushes instead of using real images.

Create a new layer and fill it with black color; it will be our background color. In a new layer open this image of a room floor and transfor it using the Perspective Tool. Call this layer Floor Layer.

To change the room color, saturation and brightness I will add three adjustment layers : Color Balance, Hue/Saturation and Brightness/Contrast with the following settings. Make sure to press the Clip to Layer button so that the adjustments to affect only the layer below.

In a new layer open this blood texture and rotate it by 90 degrees. Call this layer Blood Texture Layer.

Scale the blood texture and set only the Vertical Scale to around 50%.

Use the Perspective Tool to tansform the blood texture so that it looks like blood on the floor. Change the blend mode of the Blood Texture Layer to Overlay, 100% opacity.

Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer only for the Blood Texture Layer(use the Clip to Layer option).

Another fan art made by kolobok555; you can see that this horror text effect looks great on different font types. You can use other dark background and even add a bloody knife on the floor. reply
