Inspired by a class on Skillshare, I did my first hand lettering project last week. It was a fun learning experience.
Here’s the process in pictures.
- I started off hand lettering in pencil on tracing paper. After reworking & polishing the letters many times, I then finalized it with ink. Next, I scanned the sheet into PhotoShop and cleaned it a bit.
- I also sketched few fall-theme elements, with pencil/ink, which were then scanned into PS as well.
- The fun part was putting it all together, starting with selecting the color scheme, then creating a design using the various elements I’ve drawn earlier.
- After finishing, I’ve uploaded the design to Society6 to test how it looks on different products. The following two are my favorite.
It’s no Da Vinci but not bad for a beginner either. What do you think?
