Newb Question.

Hey, I'm trying to get into lettering. I was just wondering where people tend to get art from to practice their lettering, since if I'd like to offer my services to people I was just wondering what I could use to show as samples?

Thanks!

Thanks. Couldn't really find any but I did find a topic that mentioned going to Newsarama to find images, which works too.

Would I get in trouble for lettering Marvel and DC stuff and showing it online?

Not if you're just showing it here. I'll post post some of the activities we've done before.

You'll need a vector illustration program like Illustrator or CorelDraw, fonts from www.blambot.com or www.comicbookfonts.com and go to www.NinjaLettering.com and look at the video tutorials on lettering. Make sure to read this form and post your examples here.
