cool man … give you 4*
wonder you have for black ds lite?
Hey glad you like it!
Nah, I don’t have a tut written for a black DS lite – I think you’d just change the layer styles from white to black, and adjust the highlights accordingly. If you give it a try, be sure to let me see what you come up with!
Cool, however I’m wondering why you rasterized your initial shapes. If you had left your shapes as vectors it could be scaled up without loss. I’m looking at the PSD and checking out the layers, although I haven’t actually followed the tutorial just yet. I’m will give it a closer look in time. One other observation about the PSD you provided; the “Y” on the button is Eras Light while all the rest is Eras Medium. Also, for those who don’t have the fonts you might want to consider converting them into shapes as well. Don’t get me wrong, this is awesome. I like it a lot.
Hey Collin! For the first step I rasterized the shape so that I could delete the middle portion easily – of course, if you wanted to keep the entire thing scalable, you could make the top and bottom shapes by altering them with the pen tool. However I wasn’t keeping scalability in mind (tutorial is moreso teaching how to recreate and image using various techniques) and rasterizing the layers is the easiest way to create the initial shapes.
Regarding the ‘Y’ button – you’re right! I didn’t notice it, thanks for pointing it out! I’ll probably correct the PSD later down the road. Also, you’re right in that I could’ve converted the text to shapes – however you can basically use any font that is similar (I didn’t specify one in my tutorial) if you don’t have Eras – and converting them to shapes would render them uneditable, in case someone wanted to mess around with the fonts.
Anyway, thanks for visiting and for your suggestions, I’ll keep em in mind for future tuts. Cheers!
