its not about making a good font like a pro, just neat and a free style one :D
first , make/open a drawing where you want to write in. i have made some space for the words :)
using view>show grid , you can write the letter more neat and straight etc :D...! if the grid too small, view>grid option, and change the number.
start writting with pen/pencil, opacity doesnt matter if you want colourful words, size 2, and 50-60 smoothing.. do it carefully,
since i'm using mouse, i have to write slowly.. hehe :D.. you can see how my writting looks more neat, cause i did it following the horizontal line on grid.
make more words if you want, and arrange it . i use grid for the placement of words.
uncheck the show grid option, and it will be like this :)... sorry, not full drawing shown
1. rainbow : use lock alpha (if you dont know, see other tutorial) so you cant go off line
oh, i forgot to say to write in different layers >< !
use brush, average opacity, and start from red, go over the first word a little bit.
and go down to other colours !
this is the result XD!
2. one main colour: use the light colour until the dark one using only one main colour (e.g blue)..
i use the colour from the most left to most right, but i go up and down a little bit :)
3.contrast A : use the contrast colour of the main colour, (e.g black-white) but i'm not sure if contrast is a right word to descript this... so sorry! still use brush, white colour, go from above and make it a little half white :)
you can make it diagonally too ^^...! but leave some space for the black.. ! in the real drawing, i changed it a little...
thank you for reading, sorry for the mispelling and hope this can help some beginners to understand java :D
