I’d show a picture but I’m not allowed. It is the bottom “warp” effect in the “smash bros” part of the super smash bros ultimate logo that I refer to.
It turns out doing it is much harder than I first expected. None of the warp effects I know of are easily able to recreate the bottom half warp done in this logo.
It appears to be a method where they upscale the text further on the sides and then blending the bottom parts of the letters with a coherent curved shape. But I can’t figure out how to do it as well myself.
How do you think this is done? How can I recreate the effect the exact same way if I ever needed to? I mainly use Illustrator and Photoshop, but perhaps a better program exists for this one.
