This morning I discovered the whole new world of the digital painting while making the piece below. I enjoyed the process of adding shadows and textures to get this retro feeling. The letters seem to be made of wood and remind me street signs.
Other days I was experimenting a lot with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens. These pens have a rigid brush end, which gives a consistent line thickness and is quite easy to control. The textured effect greatly depends on the writing speed. As soon as you make a pause on the paper, you will see a dark spot of ink. To get a dramatic effect of disappearing lines you need to write really quickly.
