Hand drawn initial sketch, "Fortune Favors the Brave"
Here's my first sketch of the phrase "Fortune Favors the Brave," a personal favorite of mine. I wanted the personality of my piece to feel romantic, yet elegant and refined. I received Louise Fili's Scripts earlier this year as a gift and was basing my style on vintage labels featured in the book. Right now I can see I need to get the angles of my letters in sync and work on my fourishes. One challenge for me was having two words in a row starting with "F," I am not sure if I want those characters to match or have their own unique qualities. Thanks for your input, I am really enjoying this class.
