Martina breaks down script lettering into easy-to-follow steps. As a beginner, I can follow her process and can replicate the techniques in my own work! I am very happy with my results and will refer back to this course time and time again.
great class
This course was wonderful. Martina was very detailed and shared a lot of useful tips to improving your lettering such as the use of the tracing paper as well making sure the end of your flourish points toward the word. Im still a lil wary of using the pen tool as opposed the image trace tool Adobe Illustrator. But this is an area I have to improve on and she did a good job at explaining to ease my fears. I will def try the pen tool the next time I digitize my artwork. Thank You Martina I look forwarding to watching more of your lessons!
