On this Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show u how to make one interesting effect which I received by experimenting with Photoshop filters. In the end our effect will looks like cardiac rate.
Ok, let’s begin. Create a new document sized 700×700 pixels and fill it with black color.
After that apply Gradient Overlay layer style.
The result should be next:
After that create a new layer and merge it with previous to get all effects in one layer. Then applyFilter > Brush Strokes > Sprayed Strokes with next parameters:
See the difference now?
Ok, now we can start with creating effect. Select the Horizontal Type Tool and write out something like ‘BEAT.’ Pay your attention that the text color should be white and different design elements also. Only in this way effect of applying a filter will be maximum.
In the above image I’ve used Swis721 as my font of choice, which is free and it’s sized at a meager 120 pt. Ok after that we need to add a few lines more. Select the Line Tool (Weight: 3 px) and draw the lines like on my picture below:
After that merge text layer with lines in one layer. Then select the Eraser Tool and hard round brush and make some clear work on the new layer.
Good, then rotate our layer about 90 degrees with Edit > Transform > Rotate 90 CCW.
After that apply Filter>Stylize>Wind with similar settings to these:
See the effect now:
Then press Ctrl+F to enhance the action filter.
After that apply Filter>Stylize>Wind again, but now you need to change some parameters:
The result should be next:
Again press Ctrl+F to enhance the action filter again.
Looking good isn’t it? But this tutorial is not done for now. After that use Edit > Transform > Rotate 90 CW to rotate text with lines back.
Ok, now you should have the result like this on my picture below.
That is it. Great job!
