TUTORIAL: how to make a realistic stone text effect

This time you will see how easy is to create a nice realistic stone text. This kind of effect was already useful for me many times.

This one can be generated by using that stone text creator having its fields set as explained:
- Stone Style: 10;
- Text: stone (type what you need);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 4;
- Background color: D0D0D0;
- Dark stone color: A0A8A0;
- Bright stone color: 80A0C0;
- Draw Shadow: checked;
- Shadow offset: 5;
- Shadow dispersion: 4;
- Shadow fade: 1;
- Font name: Arvada.

That's the result image (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- I used discreet colors because in my opinion usually it makes the result more realistic, but this tool is very powerful and you can create stones or rocks of any tones;
- for this example in particular, I have chosen a thin font, but I have already got very good results with thick font faces too;
- it's possible to create a lot of realistic stone/rock text effects by using this free stone text generator.
