Traditional Media Art Layer Styles
This listing features a set of 30 traditional media effect layer styles for Photoshop.
They were made using samples created with real drawing and painting tools, which have been scanned at high resolution and carefully transformed into layer styles. They are very fun to use and will give your texts or designs a nice handmade, traditional media touch. There's a variety of different styles available in this set: paint, ink, watercolor, pencil and charcoal,... They all have transparency, which means that the white and grey areas will let your background color or texture show through, for more realistic results.
Also included: bonus actions! I've included a set of two actions - one that creates irregular edges for a more "handmade" look, and another one to modify the color of the layer style (all layer styles are black or grey by default).
The set consists of 30 individual layer styles with different textures, 1 grunge action for creating irregular edges (there are three versions of this action - Subtle, Medium and Large, depending on the font/design size and style), and a color action.
Here's the process for using these layer styles (explained in detail in the instructions PDF included):
• Write your text.
• Play the Grunge action.
• Apply the layer style of your choice.
• Edit the effects if needed.
• All the default styles are black with transparent background; if you want to modify the color, apply the Color action.
These effects have been designed for text, but they can also be added to shapes, logos and other elements (choose elements with one color only, and a transparent background). These are "One click" .asl layer styles (not smart PSD documents).
