How to make a dark scary text effect

Today we create a text effect that can help you to get a macabre or horror mood.

You can make this effect by navigating to this online 3D text logo generator and setting its elements like this (don't care about shadow items):
- 3D text style: 6th option;
- Text: SCARY (set your message);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 4;
- Background color: 000000;
- Get as a transparent PNG file: unchecked;
- Font name: Green Fuz.

These instructions are to create the text effect shown below:

Extra tips:
- this text can be created with a transparent background (check the "Get as a transparent PNG file" option);
- if you can, keep the black background because it fits the text to get a macabre style;
- the selected 3D rendering style offers some inner lights, what is important to keep the text readable (this also gives a kind of "ghost look");
- the used software offers other font faces that can be used to improve the scary look (there are over 450 fonts in total);
- create a lot of interesting effects online by using these free 3D text logo editors.

Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
