Using Light and Shade to Bring Text to Life

Using Light and Shade to Bring Text to Life
The best book I've ever read on drawing is one called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. After reading it, I'm still pretty bad at drawing, but I did learn a lot about light and shade. In this tutorial we are going to take some very basic principles of light and shade to make a rather impressive-looking text effect. So before we start the tutorial, here is a little diagram about how light might hit an object. Here we have a square object in the middle with light coming from the top left. You can see that where the light hits the object, a shadow is cast on the other side. We begin the tutorial by drawing a subtle Linear Gradient from dark grey to darker grey. Now we place some text. Next Ctrl-click the text layer and create a new layer above it. Set your foreground color to Black (you can do this by pressing the letter 'D' on your keyboard which restores the defaults). Now Ctrl-click the text layer again and create a new layer beneath the text layer.

Hebrew - English Bible by Books This copy of our Hebrew-English Bible is just intended for those who want to print out the books on their computers for study offline; note that some of these files are huge, and will take a long time to download, not to mention print. You should use the "Print Preview" function of your browser to see if the number of pages and letter size seem right for you (we generally recommend using smaller type than you would want when reading from the screen, unless you have vision problems): On our webmaster's machine, for example, Genesis prints out at 106 pages at the smallest type with 14 verses on the first page; 166 pages at medium type with 9.3 verses; 272 pages at the largest type with only 6 verses. Here are direct links to recordings in Hebrew on the Israeli Snunit Kodesh site, used with permission from Audio Scriptures International and the United Bible Society, ©1976; they are not chanted with a melody, but are clearly pronounced in Sephardic-style Hebrew.

The Hebrew Alphabet, Acrostic Psalms, Picture Letters - Biblical Hebrew We can learn the aleph-bet by examining various Biblical passages which are written as acrostics (alphabetically ordered verses and each first word commencing with each Hebrew letter of the alphabet in turn, from 1 through to 22). Psalm 119 is a famous example, written with 8 verses for each of the Hebrew consonants in order, so verses 1-8 each have a first word beginning with 'aleph and verses 9-16 each have a first word beginning with beth, and so on. Additional acrostics chapters can be found in Lamentations and Proverbs - full details in the course: "BIBLICAL HEBREW made easy".

THE ALPHABET OF BIBLICAL HEBREW This page is an introduction to the alphabet of Hebrew Scripture. Hebrew is a Semitic language. The word Semitic comes from the name Shem, named in Genesis (6:10) as the son of Noah, whose descendants lived in the Middle East. Phoenician, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Arabic are all examples of Semitic languages. They have similar characteristics, such as the presence of guttural letters formed in the pharynx or larynx; a consonantal system with three-letter word roots to connote meaning; and changes in the form or morphology of the word root through the addition of prefixes, infixes, and suffixes to determine the precise sense and function of the word.
