Hey guys!
So, to keep up with the times I'm trying out some hand lettered SFXs. I'm using a Genius EasyPen i405 tablet, some cool free bruses on Photoshop and finishing touches on Illustrator.

Nice. What's funny to me... is I know a lot of people like to think lettering is really easy with computers... but there are quite a few lettering effects that are better achieved by hand. I think a lot of the sound effects stuff, like yours here, are much better when done by hand.

I know you did some digital enhancing later too... but the bulk of the influence comes from the hand-lettered part at the core.

Well, as with many other graphic tendences today, after many years of depending 100% on computer generated images there's now a lot of people going back to basics.

Hand lettered FX look way better and do not take up all that much more time than when done with a font.

I think it's inspiring what Nate Piekos at Blambot is doing, be sure to check him out!
