1. Intro: Hi, everyone. Welcome to my newest glass lettering for beginners, right? Your first inspirational quote. I'm going to go over some basic lessons on lettering, so I don't want anyone to feel intimidated by. It's going to be some basic and fun things that included tongues of inspirational quotes for you to trace over or just use it as a guide. I also have, ah, practice sheet with the whole alphabet that you can do the same thing either trace over it or use it as a guide. I'm including some fun brushes for you to do it as well, so it gets a little more exciting. There is a multi qallab Russia watercolor brush and some texture brushes for you too, either at a background if you want Teoh and I'm also going to add a background at the end, but is going to be a photo. So I hope you join me. And I hope you have fun in this class. I want to see you work at the end of it on the project a project section and I hope you enjoy it. See 2. Warm up exercise: Okay, So in our first video lesson, we're going to do a little. Ah, warm up when or drill so you can start working with the pressure. Non pressure Ben brush on per create. So we're going to open on new canvas and we're going Teoh put the title is lettering practice. And since my practice sheet are all done in a by 10 or a by 11 printing paper, so we're going to do the same measurements for canvas. So it's going to be in a by 11. Eight by 10 also works, Yes. So if you have that already set up on your procreate, you can use that. Or you can set up a brand new one with a title lettering practice. So you know where it is. Make sure to change two inches, and that should give you a very good I'm out of layers and you're not gonna cheese all of them. You can always delete the drills or the practice. I would keep a couple of them so you can compare later on to how your lettering progress, but you don't have to. So create. We're gonna go ahead and turn on Teoh, I'm going to change the my color to black just because is the standard. So if you double tap on a circle, it will go to all black. I think that the number is 0000 for the code. Um, drawing God. I turn it on And I, uh, reduced the size of those those guys just because it gives me more lines, you don't have to. It's whatever you feel more comfortable with. And I will use the brush, the pen brush that I made myself. It's very similar to the one that comes to procreate, but I'll include this one as a free brush on this glass. So make sure to download a Ah, this one is very opaque. There's no um, likeness, Um, when when you put a little pressure to it. So that's what I didn't like about the procured, the one that comes with per creates. So we're going to start with just I'm going to up the streamline a little bit of so to reduce a little bit of the shakiness. So about 80% 80 to 85%. So going up, you're just going to do it a light stroke. So you don't put any pressure on the canvas. And then when you go down, then you put all the pressure. Um, so you're going to do this a few times? You can stop, you know, halfway if you if you if you want or if you have to. Sometimes I have to stop myself and just keep going, because for some reason, my hand cannot go in a one straight line for a long time, is just kind of weird. And so you can stop and just reconnect the lines. Or you can just start any wonders, not a rule for this. This is just too Get your hand. He used to doing those curves with a thin and thick strokes. So going up, you're going to go very thin and going down. You're going to go kind of thick. I'm going to rename. This is a drill just because I'm trying to practice to train my brain to remember to rename my layers. You don't have to in this case because we're gonna have of several layers off several book , quite a few for the drilling warm up. So now that we did those little mountains, we're going to do that, but without the curve at the bottom. So it's almost like you're doing the the forms for the M, so it looks like an M, and you're going to start at the very end of the thick stroke, and then you're going to go up on a thin and go down on a thick. So this is going to help you with a letter form of several letters, Actually, not just M and N, but it's going to help you also with with H and letters like that that you have to do that kind of form that kind of curves so upstroke, thin down stroke. That's where you put a lot of pressure, and that's gonna be thick if you are watching this in a computer. If you want to practice this on the paper, you absolutely can. You won't be able to do the special effects that I'll add at the end, because we're doing this on procreate. But if you are practice saying, on paper, you get a brush pen or you can even practice with the pencil to start, and you can see the difference in very little pressure and more pressure, even with a six b pencil, which is a little bit on the softer side. So we're gonna do a few more of these and I'm going to spit up the video because you don't have to see me doing every single one of them. But I want to make sure they you do it. So I'm just going to speed up a little bit. So you see that I'm going to just fill up the page. You can also do it a little smaller if you want to do it more times, and that's so you can get your hands used to it as well. On this part of the drill, we're going to just do like Big Els or East. So I'm sure that some of you are all of you must be thinking, Well, I already know how to add pressure to the campus. I know that if I press, it will be thicker, and if I don't put any, pressure will be thinner. But the purpose of this drill is not so much to learn how to put pressure or not to put pressure, but it's the fact that you're designing a letter and when to put the pressure and not to put pressure when in the middle of drawing a letter that might be a little tricky. So these drills help you with that? If it was just the purpose off, applying pressure and not applying pressure will just do it like two minutes off with pressure. No pressure, any scratches on the paper and you'll be done. But the fact that there so many curves that connects those letters and just within the letter, that could be a little tricky. So that's why we're doing all those drills. So the l go counterclockwise, usual letters go clockwise. Or maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. But always when you go up is little little pressure. When you go down is a lot of pressure. Now we're doing something different. You're just putting pressure on the beginning and just doing some straight lines. Well, I have a slant right now because I write all my words and letters on when I'm lettering and calligraphy. I do everything on the slant, so I'm not doing just a straight line from top to bottom. I'm doing on, like on a slant, so it's Ah, it's a little crooked. You can use that word as well. So you do a little pressure at the beginning, and you just slowly release the pressure until you lift the pen from the campus. So you said that it's thick at the beginning at the top and very little at the bottom. So this one, you're going to do a lot of pressure, little pressure, a lot of pressure, little pressure in the same line. You might not use this for lettering, but maybe this in effect, that you would like to incorporate into your lettering later. I don't know, but that's part of the drill that I've been doing for a long time with calligraphy as well . So I used the same for lettering. Not everybody does the same drills. A lot of the drills are meant to just warm up your hand so your letters look better. The good thing about bro create, you can just erase it and do it again. But when we're doing on paper, we want to minimize that time that we spend. So on our next video, we were going to start drying our alphabet 3. Lettering practice : Okay, so we're going to start war alphabet practicing. And I have a guide for you that when you download, it's going to ah, going straight to your procreate. And this is more of a guide. So I don't expect you. And I hope you don't want to do exactly the same like those letters. So I want you to have your own style. So the first thing you're going to do is going to the layer that you want to practice. So the ABC first you lock that layer and you open a new one on top of it cause you're going to practice on top of that layer. So I chose the brush multicolor one just to make it fine. So, um, I added a guide. You don't have to, but just to give me an extra help. So we're going to start with the letter A. So you start at the top Very little pressure. And then as you go down just like we're drills, you add more pressure, pressure, and then going up a little pressure going down, a lot of pressure, not a huge fan of the scholar, but whatever. So I'm going to change it and I'm going to put in the blue and going to the be the same thing going up little pressure going down, big pressure. I love this color combo and same thing with all the bees. And I left a little extra space for you to design your old letters just like once more. And I will go ahead and practice. Ah, lot of it. I'm just going to choose a regular brush just so it doesn't have oh kinds of weird different colors. So same. I'm putting an air here. When you go up a little pressure when you go down a lot of pressure, feel free to take like I don't know if you can but take a screenshot of this or just make your own notation while you watch this and put it on next the letter. So you remember to do a next time, so I'm just using one the regular brush without the multicolor for the rest of the letters . I'm not going to go to all the letters, just a few of them. But as you go through the alphabet, you're going to notice that some letters I have twice. But that's because I have a different style. So this is not one of them is just because I really like to write the M and the ends. So I lock that layer and I opened a new one on top of it, and I just traced over it. If you don't like the ah, how thick the lines are, you can always adjust your brush. It doesn't have to be the exact same that I'm using right now. This is why I never told you what percent of the brush that I'm using. I just go up and down to see what I like the best. So sometimes I use a very thin just to kind of like look like his more live cut calligraphy style. Sometimes I have a little thicker for the letter. Anyone. So there's no I have no rule for this. So you just go up and down and two, you have the thickness that you want. So, letter P, you just go down and then you go up right next to the edge of the ah first, ah, a stroke. When you go down and then you go up and you do the curve and you cross it. So if you ever wanted to write in cursive, I guess this is help. Good help. Because that's pretty much how I write. Well, the the forms, at least like the direction of each letter, Um, we don't do thick and thin is just a regular pen. So here it is. So for the ars and s and I also have the tia's. Well, I have two different styles and you can use either or you can make your own. There's so many different ways to design a letter. And I have this one where you go up thin and then you just pressed hard at the very top and you release it a little bit until he gets then or you can do a loop. So you go thank edges like a letter e. And then you go down just like the rest of the are like a did previously. So go up and very thin and then thick on on the on the other side of the loop when he goes down. So there it is. I put notation, and they're the ask the same thing. You put a little pressure at the top until it gets thick, and then you slowly release it until you go down to the loop and you cross it and you see that it's a little, very little pressure at the top. And then he gets thicker as you go down. And you also have the other style that I use every once in a while. I like the 1st 1 better that you do a loop at the top and a loop at the bottom, a loop at the top in a loop at the bottom. I guess that to us. This year I forgot to put the loop, but the 1st 1 is the one that I wanted to show you. So ah, you can just erase that, not not erased. Those just on click it and you go to the letter T. So letter T is another one that has to styles, and I used both of them actually quite regularly, so you can do just the regular stroke down the thick one and you cross it. I never do a straight cross. For some reason, I always do a wavy one. I guess that's how my modern calligraphy is, or you can do a big L and cross it, That becomes a teeth. That's also, um I use a lot of that from water. Modern calligraphy. So whatever style that you think that fits your personality the most used that you absolutely do not have. And I hope you don't make this exactly the same as the practice. This is that, Ah, rule. Like you have to do exactly the same. You're gonna have your own handwriting, your own style, and you're going to just use this as a guide. So let's go to the next video for more practice. 4. Quote practice with pressure: we now ready to practice some of or quotes, and I have a bunch for you to practice. So if you ah, downloaded quotes from the skill share, uh, resources is going to go straight to your upper create and you're going to see all these quotes here. I chose hanging there and I locked it and I opened another layer on top of it because I want to practice on top of it, and we're gonna go over at a few times. So first I chose a fund brush. I wanted to do something. Let's do the water collar multicolor. And I'll include that on the resources for free brushes as well. So I'm going with blue and just doing the same thing that I did with the letters. I want something a little thicker, lest you think, and very little pressure going up and a lot of pressure going down. This is a water color brush so you can see the watercolor effect. I love the color of this, though, and it might be a little too thick, but I'm going to go with the anyway. And I'm not following the lines exactly how it is on the paper, and I hope that you did the same. This is just the guide, so you can use your own style. I don't expect you to have perfect round curves. This is just more of a practice and just use it as a guide. There's so many different ways to conduct letter you just literally designing each letter. So I'm changing the color of the brush for every word, and this one is almost like a pinkish one. But once they put pressure, it goes to yellow, which I like, But I wish I had a little bit extra Pinkett and but that's OK. So same thing sick going up a thing going up, coming down and let's go ahead and try with a different brush. That's what makes it fun. If you try different brushes every time, do writing on top of it, then you can compare which one you like, the best and he may be can use for a future project. So I'm choosy something a little bit more pink, and I'm going to go with just a lettering multicolor. So going down that one goes all over the rainbow. I'm missing the blue but has a I'm gonna go with the blue so much better. I can't live without purple, so let's go ahead over those letters, and it doesn't have to be perfect. I'm not even following my own lines. I like to be to try different things because sometimes I come with a different letter form for what I'm doing. So I don't follow the lines exactly the way it is. I just use it as a guy, so going up very thin to that curve and you can use the different are do you have in a practice sheet as well. You don't have to use this one. You can make changes as you want, so let's go ahead and take a look and see what it looks. I love the scholar combination, so let's go ahead and do a one color, and then we can choose which one we like. So let's do this purple right here and let's go for the regular. I'm gonna go with another lettering brush. It's on under calligraphy, but it's a brush that I made. So I'll include that one of all the lettering brush that I made. This one is my favorite, so it's true thin for me. At least you can keep it on the thin. You don't have to do it super thick. I just want to do it more of a thick Just for that impact, I I'm going to speed up the video a little bit, so you don't have to see me practicing every you know, 10 times in them. After this, we're going to choose a different quote, and we're going to do all over again. Okay, there it is. Of all the brushes that I used as a simple this one, I like the best. I'll include that in a pack so you can download and use that as well if you want. So let's try a different quote. You can choose any of the ones that you see on the list or you can come up with your own Doesn't have to be anything like that. But if you want to use it as a tracing guide, um, you can choose the ones that you're going to download into your per creates. So locking the main layer and then adding blank layer on top of it. So this one is let's help each other. I just kept the same brush and the same color, and we're going to do the same thing. I added a little extra embellishment to the cross, crossing the T through free to use that as well, or even do more swirls. That's usually where at more swirls is when I cross the T. So here it iss the second quote that we're practice. I'm just going to turn off the guy so you can see a better and you can adjust your awards so the composition looks a little better. Will do that on the future video as well, so let's go to our next practice. 5. Quote practice without pressure: now do we practice with the lettering? Brush with the pressure, you know, thin stroke, thick stroke. Let's say you're not a big fan off that brush, and you don't want to deal with it right now. You just want to practice with a regular pen or even on a pen with a pencil and a paper not on your tablet. So less practice with the monoline, and I can show you how to give the same look without using the pressure sensitivity of your brush lettering. So if you're not a big fan of they just go back to your same quote still locked. Open up a new layer and you just trace over to start or use it as a guide. And you don't have to be exact on the line and just use it, you know, as a guide to just like I said before, and just write it with your monoline. I just got, like a medium, um, size. So I don't even know what the percentages. So just go ahead and write your right. Your quote, just as normal don't need to change anything. No need to be exact on top of the lines, either If you want to make a letters a little small, a little smaller, at least you can if you wanna make a bigger you can. Okay, so now that we finished or letter, you're going to make the lines that are thicker. This is what it looks like without the guide. So you still have the guy, the lines, the guide, but not the lettering guide. So every time that you would supposedly go down with your brush, that's where you going to add on extra line to make that thicker. So right now I'm putting the era where you go up, so that would stay the same thin line. So as you go down the moment that you turn that curve, you start going down. You put another line in there so you can make that site thicker. So you don't even need a brush letter to do this. Any pen will do. So you just add that line. I'm putting on the inside because this age has a quite large of a curve. But you can do Tony outside as well. So I'm doing this on the inside. I'm doing the A also on the inside, and I'm going to do this for all the letters? Um, I keep the same kind of, you know, thickness of the space that I'm going to fill in after. Ah, but it doesn't have to be exact. This is I wanted to have the organic feel, so not perfect. We will have a class later in the future where I want everything to be perfect so we can possibly have act. Arise them. But right now, I want things to be more of organic. Look. So the G you have, you add that line and as the curves starts to turn and it's almost flat, that's when you and the actual line right there. But you can fix all the imperfections later. Right now, we're just placing a line. So there you go. Now, you we have all the lines already placed. So what I'm going to do, I'm going to erase the little line in the middle. I think I'm on around layer. There you go. Now I have everything in one lier. Just benched everything together. So I'm going to just erase that line in the middle. You don't have to. I just want to when I call her drop. It is just, ah, it will color everything. So and those lines in the middle will not let the the color go on the other side. So you have to do it twice. So now I'm going to get that colored. The color dropped pretty much click on a circle and you dragon to the area that you want to color it, make sure that all the lines are connected. So I might you might see me connecting lines if they're not completely, uh, meeting on the campus. So I'm just going to do this real quick. - I also deleted the little guy that I hadn't read up and down. Sometimes I forget to use a different layer that there it iss This is just using a monoline . No pressure. You just added the thick and, um, thick lines separately. And now I'm just going to rearrange the words a little bit just to have, like, a better looking composition. Sometimes I like this method better than using the brush. Actually, um, not I don't always use the brush with the pressure sensitivity. Sometimes I use them on a line or another. Brush depends on my mood. So this one I really like in on the next video we're going Teoh show you some other tricks that we can use for lettering. So you then. 6. Add bounce...or not! : so there are so many different styles of lettering, the way the people designed the letters. And I understand that some people don't like the bouncy style. Hi, Jennifer. So I'm going Teoh, put on the couple of guides in on each word, and this is nothing fancy. Just going to go into a different layer like a differently or from the layer that you're going to write and a layer of the quote and you're just going to use the ah snapping place kind of trick. When you write a straight line, you just hold it together and they become completely straight. And I'm just going to do one at the top and one at the bottom roughly, and then I'll duplicate it. And then I put it at the bottom for the second ward, and I just, uh, merged those layers together. It just need one layer and then you go on a blank layer. I'm going to reduce the capacity here just so you can see the word and not so much of the guide, and I'm going to write in a different color as well. So let's go with pink. Something really bright and vibrant and I'm going to go back and Teoh, I'm going to go with the monoline and I'm going to make sure that all the letters that don't have the loops like the Ascend or Descend are all roughly the same size. That's why put those guys in there and there will be absolutely no bounce at all and go back here and I'll just G Normally, I'm not doing anything big. I'm just using everything as a guide. As usual, I said that a lot, but it's true because if you try to do everything perfect, it might be a little frustrating because it's never going to be exact. The same. So no, I'm using my brush lettering. So let's go ahead and just use the guide. So we have everything close to the same size, so the a in the end will be the same and the round or circle oval of the G. So the upper part of the G is the same size of the A and the end on. Then go ahead and loop and then the end for the hanging there will be a little smaller. I didn't put a guide for that. I just wanted to show you what I do for when I write a quote that I don't want to add any bounce to it. So same thing for there. And you're going to see that the letters are significantly different size than the first word. So the guide is good for that to get everything roughly the same size, so it looks more consistent. So the, um, ese or a little bit smaller, then they were before. So you can take the guide off and you can take also the lettering, the quote guy. And there you have it. It looks pretty good with a guide. So let's say now they want to add the bounce. There's no room for that. Some people at the bounce every after every single letter. I'm not a big fan of that. I like to have a little change here and there. I usually don't add a bounce after E and after Oh, but that changes as well. I usually don't do it, but sometimes I can't help it. So I met in a little circle here on the places that I usually add the bowels and I don't do anything crazy. Some people go really on really exaggerated curves and bounces and loops in between. Letters sometimes is even difficult to read. I don't care for that so much. Some some people can do a really good job. I just like a little bit of abouts and between letters, but not all of them. So I put him. Maybe because sometimes they put a bounce after a T. Sometimes I don't. So let's go ahead and write and blue something different in the pink, and I'm going to add a little bit of bounce in between those letters. So everything looks perfect and aligned, No bounce at all. And now we're going to add a little bowels too thick. So let's go ahead and try. We'll start with the age and I go deeper than the line. Same thing with E A. If you want Teoh, I'm just went straight, but I did with the end with the end and the G, nothing changes and the I am not adding about. But I am after the end and with their I didn't add a bounce on the tee, but I will at the age and you just go a little deeper than the line and That's the Bauhaus you can start. Just with that, some people do, very it's It's very shushed, not so much as a curve. It becomes like a very sharp edge. Um, I like to have everything a little more in a curvy side, like around curves instead of like a sharp edge. So there it is is just a little bounce, Nothing too crazy. And you can add it if you want, or you can just add it. Not added, but have everything industry with those guides, and they're pretty much close to the same how deep they go. Um, over that guiding line that I added that you can. They they you saw it before. Now let's go ahead and try another quote. Something different. Just refund. I'll probably speed up the video, but you can follow along. I chose the be kind. It's a little small, so I'm going to make that quote a little bigger. So, um, it takes more space on the campus, so I unlocked it, which you can just do the same thing and lock the quote and lock that layer and just increase the size and then lock it again. Open a new layer and just go ahead and practice. You can add the bounce iffy. One or not, I will. Just because I like bounce better and, uh, see which one you like it. You can actually do both. You can start with the bounce and then do one without and compare the two and see which one you like better on your style. So now we tried that that quote as well. I'm going to go back to the hanging there, and I'm just going to choose my favorite one, which is the last one that we did in blue. And I'm just going to, um, adjust where the position off the words. And so I'm just going to put time to go back to the correct layer. And I'm just going to adjust that the where all the each word is placed just to I have ah, you know, composition looks a little better, So I'm just gonna too decrease the size of the in and just put it right in the middle. And I'm going to just select the hang and put a little closer. Sorry. Didn't mean to make it so bright and place it in the middle And there you go. Now you have. Um Well, now I have a perfect lettering. Ah, hanging there. That's the one. That's my favorite. Obviously not perfect. I have to do some cleaning, but we're going to add the background in do some other stuff in the next video. 7. Add a cool background! : So in our final lesson and video, we're just going to add some background to our quote. So I just removed the guides. I don't need that anymore. And I'm just going to keep it blue for now. So I'm gonna go to unspool Ash. You just type it in on splash dot com, You can find all the pictures there of royalty free. It will be nice to give some credit to the owner. They donated those pictures out of the goodness of their heart. But you don't have to. Sometimes it remember, Sometimes I don't, so I just type it in. I don't know why. The images a little on the brighter side, it's I have my windows closed. Um, and it's not that sunny outside, but I just type mountain to see if I can get something that I like. Or sometimes I also type sky. I'm going to go for something that is not too light and color. So the image is not going to reflect on the camera for some bizarre reason. So let me find something. I just had to sky there in this one. I love this one. So you click on a picture you click on download for free and then you click download and up top. You're going to see a little arrow. I just did that twice. I'm not sure why. Right there. There's a little era, and you're going to see which is your download on your iPad and you click on that and you click on Save to your camera roll That's going to go into your camera roll and you just go into the wrench and insert ad Insert photo most recent and then at the bottom, you're going to see your most recent photo that you add it. So if you click down below most of the time it works. You've hit, fit the screen and is just going to get the whole screen. This time isn't didn't I have? Probably because the dimensions are not the same. So I just increase the size of the picture. If is just a little bit, it doesn't make that much different. So I just click on magnetic so it doesn't distort the photo before it was not on it, so that is perfect. So I'm just going to move the layer under, and I had two copies by the way a blue one and a white one. So I keep the blue for now. But you can have that. And White and I have I'm just gonna move the white one and the bull underneath that the reason I did blue It's because it's the one that goes with that orange in the background the bast, And to find that what color goes with it Just a little trick that I use So let me just position this the way I like it to find You know if what color you like to do the shading you first to duplicate the layer you put on the color day you want. So I'm just color Pick that orange and I go into harmony and that shows all the colors that would be okay with orange And I already have the blue So I just keep the blue in the background. So he duplicated that white layer and I changed the color to blue, and I just put it behind it so and I just move it a little bit so you can see a little line off the blue. And there you have it. But just so you know, there so many different pictures. A. You can use in the background for this quote. So this is one of them that I found that I absolutely loved. And there's a few other ones as well. There's a night sky that I liked. There is the Northern Lights. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I'm a little bit obsessed with the Northern Lights and this is I was just looking for although those pictures and I experimented with all of them. So go ahead, go on on splash dot com Actually save a few pictures. You don't have to choose just one to save a few pictures they you like, make sure they each is if you're doing this I by 10 or a by 11. She's photos that are already on portrayed, not landscape. So they're already closed to those dimensions. So you don't have to, you know, change the size of the photo too much, and then, uh, you can see that I just put a bunch of pictures in there and I just unclip till I can see all of them and I will put on the photos on at the end of this video so you can see what all of them look like.
