TUTORIAL: an awesome scary text effect

Today I will use some tricks to get a very interesting scary text. We can get a black, old and petrified wood effect with a nice realistic looking.

To make it, we need to use this free text generator and configure it like informed:
- Stone Style: choose the seventh option image;
- Text: scary (choose yours);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 4;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Dark stone color: 404020;
- Bright stone color: 80A0C0;
- Draw Shadow: checked;
- Shadow offset: 3;
- Shadow dispersion: 2;
- Shadow fade: 1;
- Font name: Incantation.

We get a very nice result (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- it was chosen a proper font face to generate an old wood looking;
- the selected stone style was responsible by the realistic petrified appearance. For this case, the final image is always better with a bright or pastel background color;
- you can get many realistic stone/rock text effects by using this powerful stone text generator.
