Creating weathered text and shapes



Hi, how would I go about creating weathered looking text and shapes. I’d like the text shapes to appear hand drawn so have some chips of paint missing.



I think your best bet is to apply a painted texture over letters you create:


You can easily find weathered-looking fonts on the Internet. I’d begin by going to Create the text you want and save it as a png file, with a transparent background. Then import the file and use it as a texture. As for shapes, you can buy styles that have a sketchy or weathered look, or if you use SU Pro, you can use Style Builder to create your own edge styles.
Hope this helps.


Keep in mind that some of what you want to do might be better done in post processing.
