How To Add Dimensional Shadows to Your Lettering
*This post contains affiliate links*
Recently, I have been trying not to neglect my Dual Brush Pens so much! I've got a beautiful collection of them in my office, and I'm not using them nearly enough.
In the spirit of paying lots of loving attention to my dual brush pens, I was playing around with how to add easy shadows to my lettering that goes beyond just adding a dark line. I wanted to add dimension, but I didn't want it to be difficult.
And I came up with a little system that works for me, and, in my opinion, looks pretty good!
All you need to create this look is...
- Dual Brush Pen in color of your choice
- Light Gray Dual Brush Pen (I used N75)
- A Micron (I used 02) or a Fine Liner of Your Choice
