Hand Drawn Rotering Pen Inked Letter A
Hand drawn typographic lettering is a thing of beauty, I have spent a few hours drawing this letter A, using a selection of Rotring pens. Using the shape of the A, as the bases of the illustration, I started to pencil in the different shapes and lines which creates the illustration. The shapes are all organic forms which include stylised flowers and leaves, as well as thin lines drawn with 0.25 0.35 and 0.5 Rotring pens. Roring pens are incredible pens to draw with and they are worth the investment if you like to draw as they create beautiful and accurate lines, the ink flows accurately from the pens, the density of the ink colour is fairly consistent.
I firstly sketched the outline of the shapes and then filled them in with detailed shapes, Flowers, Leaves and lines, as well as filling in shapes of the illustration with black ink to create a dense look and feel to the Typographic letter A. This is the start of a new project with the thought to create the rest of the alphabet, which includes all 26 letters of the alphabet and the numbers 0 – 10. I imagine the project to be a challenge. however I see some great potential, and a view to create a great piece of work.
