Huzzah!  Welcome to Day 1  of 30 Days of After Effects.  This first tutorial is all about writing stuff on.  I’ll show you a few ways to achieve the effect easily, and THEN I’ll show the bad-ass way to do it so it looks like real paintbrush bringing the type on.

I used a few resources to make this tutorial, and you can find the links to those resources here:

Brush Strokes
Water Color Textures
Omino After Effects Plugins (FREE)

Questions / Comments are welcome as always.
