Using a gradient on a mask could achieve the pattern blend. And then it's as easy as getting the letters outlined and arranged, and further masking out or erasing everything outside of the letters.
I would suspect this is done in a vector program like Illustrator though.
im using photoshop but thank you for the advice
Very quickly - something like this. Note the mask on the middle clipped layer
I like this way better!
oh wow, thank you!
i must be doing something wrong with the mask its starting to blend but the hard line is still visible through the blend
I added a plain white mask (reveal all) then painted it with two single horizontal lines using a large soft brush. It is the softness or hardness of the brush that controls the transition.
Hi, a screenshot would speed up us helping you 😉
it was attached in the orignal message
I meant for the post where you state that the blend that has a hard line. Please include the layers panel, (maybe switch its thumbnails to big in the local hamburger menu)
Ryan there are lots of dripping letter fonts out there, and most of them are free
Eye Candy 7 has a drip effect. I used Comic Sans as I am a rebel and its rounded shape lends itself to drips.
If you have time on your hands, you can make the drips independently of the letters.
Stamp down a fully hard round brush on a new layer.
Drag out a tail with Liquify.
Add Bevel & Emboss layer style. The shading angle needs to be 45° or 135° (ish) and you need to use trial and error on the altitude because it needs to be just right to get tht nice highlight.
Copy the layer a couple of times and randomise the size with Free Transform.
Select all the layers and copy and repeat.
Use Move > Align to distribute and move into place
The trick with the last step is to hold down down Ctrl (Cmd) and click on the drip with automatically selects the layer
It took me longer to type tyhis out than it did to create.
The font I used was Shlop - available from Adobe Fonts. Just go to Adobe Fonts and enable it.
thank you for your advice
