It Takes Mucho Practice



Finally had some free time to play with a Condor fountain pen again. My goal was to create a lettering script for print production within 1 hour. I wrote on top of a quick pencil sketch with the fountain pen. No time for creating vector lines with this practice study.

The lettering was scanned, imported to Photoshop, blurred slightly to reduce some of the stray pen marks and drop out the pencil lines. The levels were adjusted to hold a textured edge. Had this been for an actual print project the file resolution would have been adjusted for higher dpi to create a streamlined vector path.
