Lightbulb Hand Lettered SFXs

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.





Background pics are mine too.

Let me know what you think, I'll be adding some more along the way!

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!
