This app is awesome ✨ . Artist @honeydarko using Procreate and the steps below describes "how to". The short tutorial: 🖊Write you text (to get the "pipe" look, it's best to use a monoline brush. But if you use a brush with rough edges you also get a cool look) 🖊 Duplicate your layer. 🖊 Alpha lock your new layer (use two fingers to drag your layer to the right) 🖊 Start painting on your letters. I used the "Wet acrylic" brush for this part. Use different colours in different shades and bring the opacity on your brush down to around 70-80%. The more time you spend on this part, the cooler the effect. 🖊Bring the first layer down diagonally to the right. Click on "Gaussian Blur" and bring it to 50%. I changed the opacity of the layer as I thought the shadow was too dark. 🖊 Add a funky background .. or don't ☺ Either way, it's a cool effect.
Hope you don't mind the wobbly lines. Did not want to waste time redoing the lines as I wanted everything to flow for the video. The steps below describes "how to" recreate the neon sign. 🖊Letter or draw your sign with bright colours. I am using the monoline brush for this one. 🖊 Duplicate your layer twice (you will have in total 3 layers with your drawing/lettering). 🖊 Create a new layer and draw white lines inside your original lines. Make sure that it is around half the size or slightly bigger than that, as your original brush size. 🖊 Duplicate that layer 🖊You now want to use the effect Gaussian blur on both your "white lines". The top one should be more visible, so around 25-35% depending on your piece the white line below should be around 40-45%. 🖊 Go back to your orignal 3 layers that you created. For the middle layer, alpha lock it and paint it black. Remove the alpha lock and use Gaussian Blur between 30-50%. It all comes down to your preference. 🖊For your layer at the bottom, use Gaussian blur up to 70%, depending on your piece and duplicate the layer once done. 🖊Add a dark background if you havent already done so for a brighter effect. That's about it. . . . . . . . . . @procreate#procreate#calligraphy#handlettering#lettering#moderncalligraphy#handmadefont#typography#art#design#handwritten#fonts#handdrawn#illustration#calligraphyart#creativity#script#blend#doodle#doodleart#neon#drawing#sketch#dailyart#typespire#typegang#goodtype#calligrafriends#tutorial
