I've always been a fan of the 80's chrome lettering that was so prevalent during that decade. The airbrush really brought in that aesthetic of gradients which worked perfectly for rendering shiny metallic textures. The standard chrome with a reflecting desert horizon encapsulates that style perfectly. Above is my attempt at giving my name that look. Below is a piece I put together for a friend of mine. These were started out as text in Adobe Illustrator and I finished them in Adobe Photoshop.
