About This Class

e6a68994

This class will explore the fun and unique ways you can add depth and dimension to your hand lettering and achieve that 3 dimensional look to your letters using pencil and paper.  I will walk you through step by step from forming the framework or "skeleton" of your letters, creating an alphabet, adding some body and style and finally giving them depth and dimension.  We will work through multiple different styles and create complete alphabets for each style to use in your designs.  I have included downloads of the lettering alphabets we work on to use as guides in the lessons.  I have also included a lettering layout for the final project for you to work into an art poster with style and dimension.
