In this tutorial, I will show the processes involved in designing a God of War III Inspired Cracked Text Effect in Photoshop. I personally have been a fan of the God of War Series for a long time and got the inspiration for this tutorial from the game title text effect, and thought I could make a tut for it :)Along the way, I would like to show you the use of custom brushsets in Photoshop and how to use them to create eye-catching effect for your design work. There are also techinques such as layer blending mode, masking and image adjustments. Have a go!Here is a preview of the final text effect for this tutorial
Create a new document sized 1200px * 800px, fill the background layer with Black colour. Create a new layer called “background t on top of the background layer, and we’re going to do some painting with the we have just downloaded.Firstly we want to load the brushset into Photoshop. To do this, press the “B” key to select the Brush Tool, and following the steps as shown in the following screenshot:1. Click the down arrow next to the Brush shape/size2. Click the right arrow on the top right corner of the brush palette
3. Click the “Load Brushes” option on the menu
After this, you will see a window pop-up and simply select the Grunge Brush set you just downloaded/extracted, and you will see those brushes appear in the palette as shown below
On this text layer, apply the following layer blending options:
Bevel and Emboss
Gradient Overlay (Hint: you can adjust the position of the gradient by left-click and drag on the text)
And you will have the following effect:
Duplicate this text layer once and make the text look bolder and thicker:
Load the selection of the text layer (if you’re not sure how to do so, please take a look at Step 3 of my previous post) and create a new layer called “crack texture”. While maintaining the selection, load the “Crack brushset” into Photoshop and on the “crack texture” layer, use this brushset to paint over it.
You will see because we keep the selection active, the crack texture appears only within the selection:
Duplicate the “crack texture” layer once and change the blending mode of the duplcated layer to “Multiply”, you will have the following effect (the crack texture darkened) :
While maintaining the selection, pick a colour and a soft round brush, and paint inside the selection:
And here is the final effect for this text effect: (Click to enlarge)

Create a 3D Text Effect Using Photoshop Layer Styles
Photoshop layer styles are the first tool beginners learn to enhance text effects. In this tutorial I’m going to show you how powerful and flexible this tool is. We will go beyond the overused gradient overlay and 1px stroke effects. We will use patterns and some useful tricks to create a 3D text effect!
Create a new document in Photoshop. The size I’m using is 1920×1200 pixels. Fill the background with a color of your choice
I want to create a grunge background for the text. There are several ways to create a grunge background. I generally use a texture set on overlay, with the layer immediately below filled with a dark color, as you can see in this tutorial.
Today, I will use a pattern. In my last tutorial I explained how to create a custom grunge pattern from scratch. For the background of this tutorial I’m going to use use a dark pattern from the Tileable subtle grunge patterns set.
Just double click on the background layer to open the layer styles window, click on “pattern overlay” and select the pattern you prefer. If you don’t like the patterns visible in your library, click on the arrow near the pattern thumbnail and select another set from one available in the library. If you want to install a the new set, click on “load…” and select the new set just downloadeded
Now select Satin, set its blending mode to overlay to add a glowing effect to the text:
Finally, select inner glow to lighten the edges:
Add a 7px inner stroke
Now here is the trick to create a layer with only the stroke. Create a new blank layer, select both the layer with the stroke effect and the blank one, then press ctrl+E to merge them. Title this layer “Stroke”. It contains only the stroke shape.
Add a 1px stroke going from black to white and black again. You can see how the stroke starts to look like metal.
To add depth, add a crisp drop shadow:
Finally, add a thin inner glow to enhance the metal effect:
Remove all the styles and add a black color overlay:
Add a white drop shadow too:
This time I will discuss a bit about how to manipulate text
rather than simply wasting our time
Create a new canvas with a size of 500 x 300 px in photoshop, then double click on the background layer to remove the key and make it a normal layer. Further fill gradient overlay layer style on the layer as shown below.
Next, create a new layer above the previous layer (layer 1). Select both layers by shift + click on the keyboard, then press Ctrl + E to unify the layers.
Then to the menu Filter> Brush Strokes> Sprayed Strokes and input value-value that is available as shown below.
Until this step, you will get the following photoshop design.
Next add the text on your worksheet, I made my tutorial PSDESAIN text.
Give the layer style to the text as shown below design
Like the previous method to remove the layer style, create a new layer. Then select the new layer to layer text and press Ctrl + E to merge the layers at once would eliminate the layer style.
Select the Rectangular Marquee tool and the bottom of the text selection, press delete on your keyboard to remove it
Subsequently remove parts that are not needed as PSDESAIN text below.
With the line tool, create a line under the text.
With the line tool, re-create a form like the design below, and erase as the above methods
Duplicate the layer "PSDesain" it (Ctrl + J), and place the layer below the original layer PSDesain. In the duplicate layer results, give motion blur in Filter> Blur> Motion blur, and settings such as the following design
The last step, give the Outer Glow layer style on each layer is (kacuali background layer)
You can also add text to your design results and be a simple text manipulation you design results
The final result
