Below is my inspiration collage. What I collected were pieces of lettering that included cool ligatures, high-contrasting stroke weights, and different shaped terminals. I also collected some modern script examples on Pinterest.
For my lettering project, I knew I wanted to create something that I will be able to use on a future postcard or greeting card. So I decided to draw the word "Hello" for my Lettering Guide Method lettering. For this one, I may want to increase the size of "Hello" a bit, so I'll vectorize it and make it bigger.
As for the Handwriting Method, I decided to draw the word "Greetings". Here, I decided to make some interesting ligatures and draw a different letter G from what I would normally draw. I like the way it turned out. I just need to add some color and possibly other design elements. :)
