I am bored this time, so i'll just share my favorite tutorial I used to do back then. Grunging a simple font, basically we will use Adobe Photoshop of any version sa long as we have the font style, Impact, and we have grunge brushes.

Tutorial: cool font out of a usual font using brushes.

First step: open a new document with a size of 600x600 px
Second step: set the colors into #072c46 and #0d4974. respectively the colors are blue and a much darker blue
it depends on you if you choose other color, but for my template I use the scheme blue
Then go to FILTER>RENDER>CLOUDS... This should be the output

Third Step:
on the working area type in your desired word or phrases with the font style impact:
this time, I use monkey monitor and change it with the color #c6dff1
Fourth Step: duplicate the font and rasterize the duplicated one while hiding the original copy (the one serves as a copy if we made mistakes into the duplicated one)

Fifth Step: select burn, or press "o" in the keyboard, and choose "burn", then burn the edges of the rasterized font

we now create the "make-over font"
  • choose grunge brushes on your eraser brush palette, if you have no grunge brush you can download it at deviantart.com
  • be sure not to select the brush tool but the eraser tool
  • erase thouroughly the edge of the font while slowly making a cool view
  • there you go, you have now a grunge font using only impact font stlye
  • on my preview, I used other stlyle including the square below the "m",for more interesting font, but for the basics we need only the grunge brush and the font impact
