Step 2: Ink

Lightly erase your design using the Tombow Mono eraser. Once you apply ink over the pencil, it will set and show through your design. Using the Tombow Dual Brush pen in 725, letter ‘Happy 2019’. Using the bullet tip of the dual brush pen, add a border around the lettering, by ‘outlining’ the shape of the lettering.

Step 3: Add Shadow and Outline

Add a shadow to the lettering using the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen, Twin Tip in gray. I added the shadow to the right of each downstroke. I then added an outline using the Tombow Mono Drawing pen.

Step 4: Details

Using the Tombow dual brush pens in 025 and 245 add small circles in the background for a decorative detail. I outlined each circle with the mono drawing pen. Using 725 again, take the brush pen tip and add a shadow to the outline created around the lettering. (Try to imagine a light source coming in from the top left hand corner). Once your done, outline the border and shadow with the Tombow Mono drawing pen.

Cut out the phrase, leaving a little bit of white paper around the border, and attach a wooden stick to the back for a handle, using washi tape.

New Year New Me

Step 1: Sketch

Using the Tombow ONLO Mechanical Pencil sketch ‘New Year New Me’ on a sheet of Canson Mixed Media paper. I concentrated this design to be tall and vertical.

Step 2: Ink

Take the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush pen in black (soft) and trace over your lettering created in pencil.

Using the Tombow dual brush pen in N65, add a shadow to the right of each stroke. I added a thicker shadow to the downstrokes and thinner shadow to the upstrokes. I then used the Metallic Blue Gelly Roll gel pen and added a stroke in between the black and gray. I love the pop this adds.
