3D sinking text
A saw the 3D text on the internet (made with inkscape) and I thought why not try this in gimp. Here's the flow :
- new layer (white)
- choose text Kenney Future Square (load it from
- type your text (here 'GIMP' / color light blue - name the layer GIMP)
- Tools / Transform Tools / Shear - value 120)
- Tools / Transform Tools / Rotate - value - 24,10)
Remark : in this case -24.10 , the 2 corner points the bottom of the 'G' must be in a vertical line (tip : use a raster)
- Chose a lighter foregrond color
- Make a new layer (transparent - in the example name it 'G')
- Make selections with the selection box on the 'G' layer (use shift for making multiple selections)
- Fill the selections with the lighter color (on the 'G' layer)
- Make the layer Gimp current layer
- With the 'Fuzzy Select Tool', select the 'G'
- Inverse the selection (on the gimp menu : Select / Invert)
- Make the 'GIMP' layer current layer
- Delete (on the keyboard)
- Select / None
- Now it looks that the 'G' is sinking down
- The same workflow for the other text characters  

Extraordinary! I looked for a tutorial like this from yesterday and found a way here. Thank you guys, I'll try to make a cool logo design with this technique!
Thank you! I really like this. Have not been able to try this yet, but will soon.
