Hi, I'm Rob Prior. I'm an Illustrator and Director and I'm going to show you how to make your own comic font using Photoshop. The very first thing that you're going to want to do is you're going to want to go to your type tool. I'm making this big enough, I'm going to make it at 36 points and then you type whatever word that you want to type. In this case, I'm going to put warrior. Now, something that you're going to want to do first is, there's a little window up here that allows you to work your text. So, now, say you want to arc or you want to make it look like a flag or anything that you want to do with your word text you can do. But, if you want to take it one step further, you can rasterize our type; so, you just basically right click on it, go down to rasterize layer and I'm going to hit command T which puts a work around it; let's increase the size just a little bit. Increases, it makes a box around that allows you to make it any size you want. You're going to right click on that and now I'm going to put work. And now, you can then make the type however you want it to read. Tap on it, now you have your own style of type. Simple as that; I'm Rob Prior, take a look for my movie that's coming out called No Turning Back. Thanks.
