Cinematic Titles Tutorial Teaser!

One step closer! Here is what we will be creating in the new tutorial series!

Of all the tutorials I’ve made, this one has evolved the most from it’s conception (several months ago) and has even surprised me at how far it could go! Especially with the cracks and growing moss…. Many strange tricks went into this one!!

One thing I love about making these short teasers is they give you the chance to test out your idea. How does it hold up in different designs or even different backgrounds.  I try to make every concept well-rounded… A good idea is always better when you test in the real world!

First Tutorial will be out tomorrow!
