Coffee anyone?



Olivia turns 4

My little girl is turning 4 soon, so I decided an invitation was a good project. This is literally my first attempt at lettering design so I really appreciate any feedback. And here goes...

I drew inspiration from early Disney movie designs. I recently watched a documentary on Walt Disney. Very good, so here are the images I was looking at...


In retrospect, I think I mostly used it for the colors. 

So here are my first sketches..



I chose to work more on the two on the right (sorry for the really bad quality on the photo)...


I decided to go with the starry stage drawing. I liked the whimsical look and it just made me think of a little girl playing pretend. Here is my next couple drawings...


I decided it needed a little more pizaz and I also fixed the consistency of "olivia".


Final inking...


And here it is with color. 


I do really like it, but I'm still trying to decide if it needs something else. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
