Hand Lettering Process From Sketch to Finish

It's been a while since I made 'serious' piece of art. So I decided to make a blog post for the whole process. This one is a bit longer than my usual process, so you can clearly see everything.

Tools used:
  • A5 Paper
  • Pencil 2B
  • Eraser
  • Microns Sakura (0.05, 0.1, 0.3, 0.8, Brush)

Step 1

Every piece starts with a random quote I found on the internet, or a quote I relate with at the moment.
I write them down, start making a thumbnail, and see what shape will it take.

Step 2

Make grids, decide spacing, kerning, and font type (sans, serif, script etc.) or just make everything sans, then decide later.

Step 3

Iterate and corrections. I change a few elements here. Seeing what fits what doesn't. It took a bit experience to determine which style to use. And just refine everything, work on the details.

Final Step

Inking and you're done!
