To get an effect like that really depends on how your font looks...then after your font looks right, how the edges of each letter looks, then the rest is a piece of cake (layer blend modes and simulated shading a.k.a. drop shadow manipulation)

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Blend modes are like the filling in your sandwich. It's the filling that can change your experience of the sandwich. ~Ego Eram Reputo
