View Full Version : Non-Photo Blue Lettering

04-28-2013, 02:11 PM
I love the ease of use with digital lettering but I love the warmth of hand lettering. Then an idea occurred to me that I can take the non-photo blue technique of artists/inkers and maybe apply it to lettering.

The letterer would first letter at original art size via computer and then print on velum in non-photo blue. He would then letter by hand on top of the print out. (Sorry for the sub-par hand lettering).

I know it's not as fast as doing it digitally but it might be a way to speed up hand lettering.
