Alright, so I came back to this one and decided to forge ahead rather than start over. I don't mind the outcome, but I do wish that I had fit the whole word within the first letter, S. All about practice at this point I suppose. I seem to be coming back to this particular look to my letters as well...they're fun. I do want to challenge myself a little more though and expand what I have to offer. For next time...
Well, just had another busy weekend where I thought that I would be able to get to my blog, but unfortunately didn't have the time required to turn something out :( I do, however, have a little something for all to watch...I truly do love hand-lettering and appreciate those talented folks out there. I'm hoping as I work through time restraints I can someday be close to this level of talent.
Wow! I am officially behind again. Dang this blog! LOL! Well, really I can blame it on my crappy internet connection as for two days in a row now I was unable to upload and/or save anything, let alone open my weebly website :( That said, I will be posting a few blogs back to back to "catch-up" and feel like I'm getting somewhere again in achieving the entirety of this blog practice. I actually dig the practice, but I think if I apply it in the future, I will reduce the requirements on myself to a blog every other day or maybe every few days. One shall see...
Today is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I have started this design and haven't quite figured out where to take it. I may work on it further or start from scratch (same concept) just to get all of the word to fit within the bottom of the S. I find that if I just erase, the design starts to become sloppy and muddled. I am working on drawing a bit lighter (harder than one may think) to defeat this issue, but until then, I usually just start over...much more to my satisfaction. Peace
I decided to try and mix some words again and stick to a solid shape for the design. I really like the shape and x-height of the words "make" & "happen." They came together well to keep the general shape intact. The word life is a nice filler font as you can play with its design flourishes to fill just about any space. Making life happen right here. ;)
