To create text resembling foliage, I used three transparent Photoshop layers. I applied an assortment of layer styles to each layer and added leaf-like shapes to each letter of my text with the Custom Shape Tool.
Reproduce the look favored by hunters, sports enthusiasts, and military aficionados. Experience the Camouflage Type Effect. Two versions of this Photoshop layer style are provided: a Web version and a print version.
For your convenience, all the letters of the alphabet have been created in camouflage for the Web version of this text effect. In addition, the camouflage alphabet is supplied in uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as in the following font sizes: 252 pt, 186 pt, 128 pt, and 96 pt.
The camouflage print version is a 300-dpi file that uses the CMYK color mode and includes three camouflage letters in each of the following font sizes: 128 pt, 96 pt, 72 pt, 60 pt, and 48 pt. Creating additional letters is as easy as duplicating both layers of a letter and typing over them.
The font used for this layer style is Franklin Gothic Demi Condensed, but it also looks good with other fonts.

Just to demonstrate what’s possible with Photoshop, I’ve created three typeface effects:
- Woodland Camouflage. Get this camouflage type effect here…
- Tiger Stripe Camouflage
- Australian Camouflage
These effects were created with layer styles, and they can be easily applied to any font.
I’ve been following the tutorials in the new book, Papervision3D Essentials, and I’m very excited about the potential of this new Flash technology. Though there’s a steep learning curve, it’s well worth the trouble to learn this set of custom ActionScript classes. It extends the capabilities of Flash, enabling programmers and designers to add a third dimension to Flash.
Previously, 3D computer imagery was confined to high-end CGI software such as Lightwave, Maya, and 3DS Max. Now, thanks to the hard work of Carlos Ulloa and other programmers, 3D is finally coming to the Net.
While following the step-by-step instructions in Papervision3D Essentials, I created my first primitive, a sphere. This process involved importing the required Papervision classes and then initializing, projecting, and rendering them.
Here’s the Papervision3D sphere in all its glory:
