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, are drawn with 0.25 0.35 and 0.5 Rotring pens. Roaring 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 first 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 creating a great piece of work.
