In this interview, Mye De Leon is back for a second time! In this lesson she’s showing us how to do cuuuurved lettering, two ways!
Check out the video, and then scroll down for my key takeaways and a list of all the resources we mentioned!
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
- How to use a compass to draw your guides
- Why you should use a “curve path”
- How to plan your sketch
- Why you should draw a “skeleton” first
- How to use your drawn letters as a point of reference
- AND MORE
KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS LESSON:
- Always start on the middle part of the word and draw your letters outwards. This will help you evenly distribute the letters and spacing!
- Despite the curve of the word, the stem of the letter stays upright!
- Curved letters (such as U and O) have to slightly “overshoot” the baseline.
- Fix an issue or mistake as soon as you see it! The earlier you catch the issue, the better (and the less re-work you will have to do later!)
