    so you want to make it look like a hardcore poster or something?

    do you want to use it as a pen plugin?

    or you just want a background with splatters?

    please elaborate.

    well, i DO know that if you don't have the color of your text on your colors option you can use the drop tool (looks like an eye drop). i wish i could help you on the ink splatter but i only use photoshop in school, and i haven't learned how to use it that well yet.:eek:

    i dont know of any plug in filter to do that, and doing it by hand, in photoshop, would be a bitch, you're far better off actually dripping some ink on a white piece of paper, scanning it in, then placing it however you want it. anytime ive needed effects like that, its hwo ive accomplished them.

    thats what friends are for homie.

    no idea what book your talking about, but there are few things that cant be replicated in photoshop one way or another.

    i would splatter the ink, scan it in, jack the contrast way up, so it becomes basically line art, then id 'replace color' to make it the same as the font.
    voilla.
    punk rock asthetics with techno know how.
     
  13. what seeking said, you could also try playing with a filter like cutout that can give it a nice vectory look, better still put through adobe streamline to turn it in to an illustrator file then open it with ps at a hires, it will give you a really nice clean look...maybe to clean...

    i dont understand all this need for a computer.


    old hardcore posters that probably have the effect you are going for werent done on a computer so why would you need fotoshoppe to get the desired effect.

    get some ink

    triple run some serif type you like in a shitty shitty copier.. the shittery and more grainy the mo' bettah.


    then when you get your bootlegging to the desired point.
    scan it in if absolutely necessary.
