This is just one of the features added in the Android 4.1.2 update for the Galaxy Note 2.Thanks to XDA user 'mythtrandyr', Galaxy S3 users running ROMs based on the Android 4.1.2 test firmware XXELK4 can now install Ink Effect on their devices.Here is how the effect looks like:  How to install INK EFFECT on Galaxy S3 Firmware XXELK4:
  1. Backup you data first
  2. Download the installation file for ODEXED versions or DEODEXED versions ROMs
  3. Flash with CWM: 'Install zip from sd card' > Choose the file you downloaded and reboot at the end
You can access to ink effect options by going to Settings > Lock Screen options.
