Are you in the mood for some glossy plastic and reflective chrome text effect? I bet you do. Chrome effects are very difficult to create because chrome has no color at all.

For this effect I used the Helvetica Rounded Bold font, but you can use any rounded font you want. Some other similar free fonts are: Junegull, Zorque and You’re gone. This effect will look better on rounded fonts, but trying other fonts can bring some interesting results as well. The image below shows the final result:

Illustrator is great for creating sharp flawless lines and elements, but sometimes you want to create an illustration with some texture and depth. Watercolor paintings have great textures and depth, but when coupled with Illustrator it seems counterproductive to what the program was built for. You might think “Why not just do this in Photoshop?” Then you will miss out on all the wonderful things vectors have to offer, like scalability.

Before we get started, let’s take a look at the image we’ll be creating. The source file for this tutorial is not currently available, though we are planning on releasing this in the future. Below is the completed illustration to see what you are working toward. Read full tutorial here
