Chrome text discussion

Great and simple solution to the OP's question, welshblue. Well done.

 

I know this has nothing to do with PDN, but there is a Custom Font script available for gimp that allows to use some very extravagant fonts already created or your own custom fonts. I made a few myself like this chrome font.

Well, I only succeeded in making porcelain-like 'blue agate' lettering.  I used @dipstick's environmental map and a few of @MJW's height map plugins.

I did each letter separately.  :/   A different map may produce a better result in PDN.  Now, this is going to bother me...   :roll:

That would be awesome @MJW!  I use your height map plugins an awful lot!  Love them.

They are a tremendous boost to my creativity.   :D

Thank you @Ego Eram Reputo    I'll pull something together.

 

@AndrewDavid ...your attempt is very, very good.  Nice job!  

 

@welshblue ...your is good, also; it looks like liquid silver or mercury.

 

Sorry @Aaron3219 for getting off-topic!   I think we all got carried away... :beer:

 @dipstick    After much putzing around, I finally achieved this result.  I was making it much harder than it really was.

What do you think?

Wow!  Some amazing results on here :D.

 

I tried, but couldn't get anything like @dipstick's initial posting of that Gimp image.  Anyways, I had to play and give it a try.
