Marlene Dietrich quote

Hi!

Thank you very much for such an interesting class!

So, here is my project.

I was inspired by Marlene Dietrich. I really love this actress and decided to make lettering and illustration using one of her famous quotes.

SKETCHES and COMPOSITION

I looked a lot of Marlene's portraits and I was trying to find the best one.

Also, I've found a quote which I decided to use for this project. 

I think that Marlene's style with a cylinder hat from The Blue Angel movie is the most recognizable. 

I decided to place a quote on this hat.

Then I started practicing on different forms, styles and textures of letters.

I'm not a pro in lettering and it was a bit difficult to use my imagination in such way. But I see that it gives more freedom when you start practicing it like for fun.

But it was more comfortable for me to find the final styles of letters on the final hand-drawn sketch, as I usually do with illustrations.

FINAL HAND-DRAWN WORK/SKETCH

So, this is my result made by hand.

FINAL WORK

After that, I've made a scanned copy and worked a little bit in digital.

And that's the final work.
