Hello, beautiful!

Hello, beautiful! - student project

This is my first attempt in Faux Calligraphy.

I think the best technique for beginners is to take it slow. Draw your lines carefully to keep them smooth and fine. And don't forget to breathe in the process! haha

Project 1: Hello, beautiful

I added flourish and thin lines as accents to make it more dainty.

Pen Used: Sakura Pigma Micron 03

Project 2: Vannessa

My name is almost always misspelled so I never really used my full name. I think this is also the first time I tried lettering it. I still have to practice my curves for the flourishes though. I partly shaded the letters to create an illusion of highlight to my letters.

Pens Used: Sakura Pigma Micron - 03 and Kuretake Zig Cartoonist Mangaka Flexible - Medium
