Monoline Script Font

Hey guys! In this tutorial I am showing you a method used to create a liquid-like effect for you lettering work. As mentioned at the start of the video, this isn’t the only way to create this kind of effect, this is just how I did it. The idea for this originated from when I saw a blog post tutorial showing you how to create a water effect, however, after following all of the steps, the end result didn’t look too great and wasn’t really what I was looking for, so, using different methods and techniques I have learnt over the years of using photoshop, I branched off about half way through the tutorial and started experimenting by myself to see if I could figure out a way to get the sort of effect I was striving for. I finally came up with a process I think works fairly well and gave me the result I was looking for.
Hopefully this tutorial has taught you a thing or two that you didn’t already know, and if you have any questions at all, just post a comment below and I will get back to you asap.
As always, if you use this tutorial and post the results on social media, please feel free to tag me as I love seeing what you guys come up with!

If you have any suggestions or requests for any tutorials, post them in the comments below.
Take it easy guys!

    I'm 2 years late commenting but to anyone who may be interested – using this tutorial i discovered, to get a milky effect for your liquid (thicker, less reflective) use plaster instead of chrome from the filter gallery – works like a treat. thank you for this tutorial!

    What version of PS is being used here? Lighting Effects is not an option for me.

    How would you do with a background that wouldn't be neutral ?? Like a photo or something that would not be just one color ????
    Thank's for your tuto dude 😉

    Hi! Is there any way of making the 'liquid' a colour? for instance I am trying o make it look like cola but not have a brown background


    Before Lightning Effects, convert the text into smart object! No idea why he can just rasterize it but for me it didn't work.
    Converting to Smart Object and then using Lightning Effects -> Chrome Effect worked like a charm.

    Hi, I have a question basically I have exactly the same until you go to Filter Gallery when I try to do the chrome it just gets black. Any tips? I'm working with 8bit and even the same font but for some reason it's not working! Help

    I get to the point where you use the filter gallery and select Chrome, but previews as plain black, then when I click ok, nothing happens.

    Doesnt work after filter render lighting effects. Need to make a new video with up to date software.

    How can you reproduce the same effect in Illustrator? Is it possible? Absolutely love this tutorial btw!!

  14. SammyLegacy Reply

    Love this so much, any thoughts for how to do this effect but for an opaque liquid like orange juice? Think there must be a way to use the shading and highlights and apply it to a solid colour version of the text? If you have any ideas please reply thanks 🙂

  15. Awesome tutorial! Only thing I don't understand is, why my result after using the render filter is super pixelated, even though the size of my image is A2. Any ideas how to get a higher resolution?

  16. Hi Ste, do you handwrite all your lettering beforehand? What do you do to make the digitalised version so clean? If there is a tutorial on the process I would love to watch it. Thanks. Awesome work btw!
