What could be better than getting some new supplies in the mail. Well, last week I got 7 new brush pens for lettering that I wanted to share with you. Some I love, some not so much.
Are you struggling to transition from thick downward stroke to thin curve? Then you need to work on your wrist control. Many people have this problem when they start practicing brush lettering, whether with a brush marker or thin brush pen. It can be even more difficult if you are using a very flexible tip.
So you got yourself a water brush, now what? Well, there are a few things you can do with it, of course, you can use it to paint beautiful landscapes, people, abstract art and more, but here, we'll use it for lettering.
But before you get to that part, (coming next week) let's talk about the different way to use it and how to take care of it so it lasts you a long time.
Have you been struggling with adding bounce to your lettering pieces? I made a video of how I go about doing it. Also, it's a whole behind the scenes look at how I go from sketch to finished inked piece. Yes, I start with sketches, it's the only way to not waste a TON of paper and really get your layout and design looking good, especially if you're a beginner.
With April already here, there are a lot of new lettering challenges out there that you are probably thinking of joining.
As you know, I host a monthly lettering challenge on Instagram, and I just wanted to give you some tips on how to make the best of it, not just by doing it every day for the heck of it, but using it as practice so you can actually get better at lettering, and how to make you Instagram feed look pretty cool too.
