Pixel Art Tutorial Series is currently the most popular thing on my page. The idea behind this is to take suggestions from the community and try to make a tutorial out of these things, helping out fellow deviants along the way. You can also find my pixel art tutorials in groups like TutorialsForYou, TutorialsClub and PixelCommunity.
Here is a list of tutorials in my Pixel Art Tutorial Series, tutorials which are underlined and bold are already ready tutorials that you can read, other tutorials without the underline are tutorials that will be posted in deviantART in near future.
You can also suggest new pixel art tutorial series by commenting on my profile page, on these tutorials or by sending me a note.
Enjoy!

Tutorial Showcase #17

Sun Jul 5, 2015, 11:35 AM
DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!

Theme for this time is:

Summer Text Effects


3D Summer text


Text1 by vanmall

This first tutorial by Tony Aube is a great example of a great summer text - beach, palms and umbrellas - awesome. In this tutorial you can learn how to put a picture in your text and how to use photoshop 3D features. Overall this tutorial is quite long but also full of details. Well explained and easy to follow.

Hay Bale typography


Text2 by vanmall

Another 3D text effect tutorial but this time a bit more complicated. This hay bale tutorial teaches you how to make a cool hay text effect using photoshop and mini bridge. This tutorial is also very well explained and therefor quite long. So if you want to try it yourself then find some time and I'm sure that you won't be disappointed at the end of it.

Paper text


Text3 by vanmall

This tutorial teaches you how to make a best of photoshop vector features like pen tool, custom shapes and so on. Also a very good and well explained 3 page long tutorial. Using this effect you can make some awesome paper effects for not only your texts but for everything else as well.

Tasty text


Text4 by vanmall

Who doesn't love sweet and tasty looking texts. In this tutorial you can combine some tasty pictures to make this beautiful text effects. As with first two tutorials, this one also uses some 3D magic to make this typography even better.

Bubble gum text


Text5 by vanmall

And here is the last tutorial for this time. This is a very long and a bit more advanced tutorial on how to make a cool text effect. Since you have to make the text effect from scratch, it might be a bit more difficult. But if you want to try something challenging, then this tutorial is for you.

And this is it for this time. I hope you liked it and if you have some ideas for next time then please be sure to let us know.

Hi, my name is Mikk Sammal or as most of you know me - vanmall. I'm 24 years old and live in Estonia, a small country next to Finland, Russia, Latvia and Sweden. During these 24 years I have found myself many hobbies I really enjoy. If you have been watching me then you most probably already know what I like and what I don't like. Due to my hobbies I really like summer as then I have more free time to enjoy my life. I like to ride with bike a lot and also take pictures. When theres nothing else to do then I use my computer to create some art, mostly pixel art or web design. I'm really proud of my pixel art achievements, I have tried out most of the things you can do with pixel art and during that time I also tried to teach others.
DeviantArt has always played an important part in my life as when I first started with my art then this was the place where I got my inspiration and feedback.
