(completed) Mrs. Eaves Bold letters

updated 9/25/15

I've made my alphabet into vectors now and done a couple of mockups with them (I may edit these still before the end of the session but I really like where they are right now).  While I was initially sketching these letters, I was thinking that this would make a great calendar so I did a mockup of that and a new piece of wall art for my office with the Matisse quote.

I cleaned these up a little bit in Photoshop (due to some major paint smudges and my scanner not liking my wrinkled paper) but I tried to leave the natural roughness that occured with the hand painting.  I chose to use yellow, blue and green and let them bleed together naturally.  Also I apparently grabbed carbon paper and not graphite paper but I don't mind the sketched outline look that the letters have as a result.

I can't wait to put them into Illustrator and play with them in vector form.

For my project, I chose the typeface Mrs. Eaves in the bold variation (since this is my first watercolor project I wanted a little more room to work with).  Here is the typeface printed:

Here are my resulting sketches:

I plan on doing some clean up on my sketches and making them significantly lighter before continuing onto the watercoloring part.
