About the Session
Method - 1 - Denser Type
11 Lectures 01:22:39

Let us start preparing the image for Typography. Generally when we do a Typography of any type we need to prepare/standardize the Image in order to carry on Typography according to that particular method.

Preview 07:22

There are a few concepts that we need to understand before we start creating Typography.

In this video I have discussed about:

  • Adapting the Skin flow
  • Writing over a path
  • Creating Multiple Lines of Typography
  • Jumping Text between paths
Getting Started

Now let's start creating typography then. This video contains:

  • What are the best practices that you could follow while creating Typography
  • How to re-adjust the path even after creating them
  • some of the useful shortcuts that would speed up your workflow
  • How to efficiently place the text layers in Harmony
Creating Typography

This video describes in detail on the efficient Typographic methods that we could follow. The Second half of the session is a Time-lapse video of the work that I covered. Since once you understand the basic concept its a repeat process I have added the complete work as a Time-Lapse.

Efficient Typographic Methods

in this session we are just going to discuss on how we are going to maintain the line flow when the process gets complicated as we move on.

Maintaining Line Flow

In this part we have created the Eye Portion of the Image

Creating Text for Eyes

As we are getting into the Repeat process of completing the whole Image. This is a Time-Lapse video that shows how I have created the complete picture. 

If you have already completed the picture you can go ahead and skip the session.

Time Lapse of Method - 1

Let's discuss on how to create facial hairs for this picture. Since there are lots of facial hairs we could not create a bigger text layers filling them. Instead we need to create number of minute layers to maintain the texture of the facial hairs.

Creating Facial Hairs

In this video you will learn about Smart Objects. What are they? why do we need them? And how do we create them?

Exploring Smart Objects

This is the final process of creating typography by using all the Text layers that we have created in the previous sessions.

Final Processing

A simple Game based on Typography that would test your skills.

Fun Time - Game - 01
Method - 2 - Warping Type
8 Lectures 46:56

In this session we are going to talk about Warping a unique technique which is the fundamental aspect of this sort of Typography. Also we are going to talk about different options available in them and where do we use them efficiently.

Preview 04:36

In the previous session we discussed about Warp technique. What it is? And how to use them? 

In this session we will see how to implement this in Typography.

Warping for Typography

Just covering up more image using Warping and Understand the in-depth details on warping.

Warping in Detail

Time Lapse of Warp filling

Introducing to another Unique technique called "Puppet Warp" which allows you to fix a lot of places where we need fixes. Watch the session for more details.

Introducing Puppet Warp

We have come to the end of yet another method of Typography. As always we are going to look through the final process of converting the warped image that we have created into Image Typography.

Method - 3 - Threshold Type
4 Lectures 20:01

Preparation process of the Image for the last and final method of Typography. This is one of the most easiest method. I have introduced a unique effect and technique in this session called "Threshold" which is the basic requirement for this Typography.

Introduction to Threshold - Preparing Image

In this session we are going to talk about 3 important things:

  • FOB - Fill on Black - which the concept behind this typography
  • Take the advantage of Rulers and guides
  • Line Spacing between Lines
Creating Text for face

Unlike the other 2 methods of typography, This method requires a slightly different approach on completing the picture. So we need to know about Gradient Tool and Blending modes which I have discussed in this part of the section.

Complete the Final Picture

Finally we have completed all the different methods of Typography. So we are all set to go ahead and save the work file as Photoshop document and as a Picture.

Saving in Documents
