Dry-Ink Lettering

I was gathering inspiration for a lettering texture when I came across this class. I had a lot of fun playing around with your technique and it seemed like the perfect occasion to apply it to this project I was working on at the time. I'll probably come back to create a bookplate, sounds like a cool project, but for the time being, here's my process lettering «terrific Tuesday».

After finishing the lettering I decided to animate the whole thing as part of Jake's «Hand Lettering in Motion». You can see the finished piece here.

1—Lettering Process. Sketches, Editing and Vectors


2—Dry-Ink Texture applied

Here's what the inner glow looks liks inside the Smart Object


And here's a version of the texture applied.


Since the widths of the upper and lower lettering differ quite a bit, I decided to leave the texture on the bottom part only for the final piece.


If you like, you can see the final animated version of this piece here.

Thanks for watching!
