I recently follow this account and really love how the text is projected on the model.

I tried doing it with a projector however the projector also projects black light and it does not give the same effect at all.

red text over model

writing cheek

How could I achieve that kind of effect?

PS: If someone also knows how to get this kind of red backlighting that would be awesome.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you sure the text effect is not just photoshopped and actually achieved through some kind of projector ? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jul 13, 2021 at 8:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Tetsujin if I use a projector you can see the text and you can see light projected on the rest of the face of the model when I tried it. In the first picture you can see there is no other projection it looks like only the text is projected. Maybe through a laser? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @silverrahul how would you get such realistic reflection as well as lighting around the nose. \$\endgroup\$
