Check out the latest on my YouTube channel. i’m going to follow the letter J all the way from pencil drawing to vector output.
Welcome to 2013!! Here’s my first lettering of the New Year. I took a portion of my sketch from the last post and gave it the Illustrator/Photoshop treatment. After I vectorized the drawing (NOT auto-traced!), I used my sister’s favorite color “purple” to create a nice gradient in Photoshop. I plan to do more of this in the months to come—Please, if you like it “pin” it!
These table numbers were a special request by my client who wanted a black outline and a silver metallic filling. I first hand drew them with a technical pencil and then outlined them with a pointed nib. I will come back with a silver metallic marker to fill in the center. Any rough fillers will be cleaned up with a silver gel pen.
