Above The Negativity

-------- Oct 16th 2013 ------------

Hello everyone!

Below, I will be constantly updating you all on my progress throughout this class project.

To begin, I know that I want to letter the phrase "Above The Negativity". It's a phrase that really hits home and means a lot to me. Definitely helps me stay positive, working hard, and helps me forget about the past.

I'll be gathering inspiration to form a mood board soon!


After piecing together my mood board, I have a general feel for the look of the type and style I'm going for. Definitely aiming for a vintage, possibly chiseled lettered look. I also want to incorporate some nice flourishes and swashes to really give it that older, more distinct and traditional look. Time to sketch!


Here is a warm-up sketch to really nail down this beveled and 3D look I'm going for:


Life has been keeping me busy, especially this thing called, college... Haha anyway, here is the concept sketch, then the inked version, and digitally colored version as well. I still have TONS of process and initial ideas that I need to scan to show you all how I ended up at this final illustration. Coming soon! (hopefully)

Final colored and textured version -----


All in all, more process will be shown on this project soon! Just need to find the time to gather it all. Excited for the next "Finalizing Hand-Lettering" class!
