Photoshop Shapes: Graffiti by lukeroberts Photoshop Shapes: Graffiti by lukeroberts
I've been interested in tags lately. I've always thought they were ugly, really, but after taking photo with tags in them, i've noticed some that are actually quite artistic. Some tags are like modern, urban calligraphy.

And since i had quite a few photos of tags, i thought i'd turn them into Custom Shapes :)

I've already been finding them useful for things like backgrounds in posters and designs and i've used them in the background of my 3D Audi scene: [link]

haha thanks for the comments :) I'm glad you like all the Custom Shapes!

I made a written tutorial on how to make them yourself a while ago, but i've also just made a video tutorial. I think it's a bit easier to understand when you can see the shapes being made, so i'll have to upload that soon.

i hope you don't mind me asking, but you seem very acquainted with photoshop, how do i upload a font?

lukeroberts Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2007
I'm not sure what you mean by "upload a font". Do you mean upload one here on to deviantart?

no.
if i download a font from here, how to i apply it in photoshop.

lukeroberts Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2007
If it's a ZIP file, you'll need to open that and drag and drop the TTF file onto the desktop (or where ever), then open up C:/Windows/Fonts and drag the TTF file from the desktop into the Fonts folder.

That's if you're using Windows anyway.

ok, i have it on the desk top, & when i go to drag & drop it to the photoshop font file, it brings up a search window. & i can't figure out where to go frm there.

Thanks so much for making these! Is it alright if I use them as part of an artwork in my folio? (It also might end up being on public display.) Credit would be given, most certainly!
