    Default Corrugated Metal with Text Tutorial Revisited

    Back in the day I did a tutorial for placing text on a background of corrugated metal.
    I tested my memory to see how much of it I remembered roughly 3 years on.
    This method removed the need to re-shape the text and instead using a font that blends into the repeating fill background,
    making the whole exercise a lot simpler.
    I also made use of the transparency blending Overlay mode that wasn't available at the time on a grunge background.
    Those were the days and I for one sure miss 'em.
    Bob.

    I remember that tutorial Bob, it was a good one. I decided to have a play with the new blending modes and opacity masking to and see just how photo realistic I could get. I also added in rust which wasn't in your original tut.

    I've included my .xar file for anyone who wants to have a look or dissect it.

    Note: this was created in DP V12 (365) while the file will open in older versions features of newer versions will be ignored.

    that's a good drawing you did there
    could easily mistake it for a photo
    the rust is really well done
    the text is a bit orange but otherwise very cool image

    now just to get the spelling of corrugated right...
    If someone tried to make me dig my own grave I would say No.
