Ribbon Lettering
9 STEPS
Plan out your word using a light pencil
1
Erase off the pencil markings and use a light colour as your base
2
Outline the “corners” of downstrokes (tip: downstrokes = front face; upstrokes = back face)
3
For T overturns, you can make the two ends the front faces
4
Outline the rest (tip: make back face the same thickness as front face)
5
Optional: erase the outline, leaving only light marks to guide you later
6
Add colour to front face and blend
7
Do the same for the back face (tip: use more muted colours to make your front face stand out)
8
Add some outlines & highlights and you’re done!
