How to Make an Ice Text Logo for Ice Age 2
Tutorials Text Effects 29198 June 19th, 2018

Are you a fan of cartoon movie Ice Age? I am too! In this tutorial I will try to show you how to make an "Ice Age2" text effect similar to the one from the movie. It is really simple to do. Have fun!


Step 1 - Don't write, DRAW

I don't want to find a font close to the one used in the movie poster so I will draw with the Pen Tool the text. It doesn't have to be perfect but it has to be similar to Ice Age Text.

So take the Pen Tool and draw all the letters.

With the same tool draw also the "2" number.

Step 2 - Give the text a 3D look

If you don't have a new photoshop version or you don't have 3ds max software you can give your text a 3D look drawing.

So select all the layers so drawn so far and put them into a group. Call the group Text.(Layer - New - Group from layers)

With the Pen Tool draw a shadow like in the picture below. You will have to have 3 layers; one for the "ice", oane for the "age" and one for "2".

The shape for the "ice" looks like this:

The shadows for the "age" and "2" look like this:

Now put all this 3 layers into a group called Shadow. Place the Shadow group beneath Text Layer

Step 3 - Ice Texture

Draw a rectangle with the Rectangle Tool, color # 259be0. call this layer Texture. Set Foreground Color # 259be0 and Background color white.

Now go to Filter - Render - Clouds.

Go to Filter - Render - Fibers(variance 14, strength 4)

Go to Filter again, Brush Strokes - Spatter(spray radius 13, smoothness 8).

Your texture should look like this:

Step 4 - Give perspective to the Ice Texture

Go to Edit - Transform - Rotate angle 40 degrees. Go to Edit - Transform - Perspective .

Scale the texture to make it bigger so that it covers the entire text.
