Handwriting Mona

Handwriting Mona - student project

Thank you, Martina, for this wonderful workshop!

I spend many hours drawing, sketching and digitizing my project. And in the end I'm really happy with the final result.

First I sketched my name very often on paper and tracing paper. I found out that I can work the best with a mechanical pencil (mine is the Mono Graph from Tombow), but I made a lot of sketches with all kinds of normal pencils.

After the decision which sketch I will digitize, I colored the pencil drawing with a Picma Micron Pen because I had to take a picture of the sketch to get it into Adobe Illustrator.

The next picture shows the digitizing process, which took some time. I found out much new information about the best extreme points and how to work at every letter separate.
