Bloody Text Effect Tutorial

In this tutorial I will show you how to make bloody text. Just a neat little effect that could be used in many types of graphics. So lets begin.

First open up Photoshop and make a new document. I picked the size 500×400 pixels.

Then with the Type Tool add some text. The font I used was ‘Requiem’.

After you add the text right click on the text layer and go to Blending Options.

And add the following
Drop Shadow

Inner Shadow

Outer Glow

Bevel and Emboss

Gradient Overlay

Now when we are done with that hold Ctrl and click on the text layer. Should look like this:

Then make a new layer over top of the text layer.

Then get a blood brush and set the color to white and brush the text. Here is what mine looks like:

When you are done deselect the later. Then with the blood brushing layer right click and go to Blending Options and add the following.
Bevel and Emboss

Color Overlay

And you are done this great looking blood text.

My result.
