Tips & Tricks

Turning Alphabet To Artwork

I have found that alphabet characters (i.e. A,B,C etc) can be useful as artwork. I call in the character, often script types, convert to curves, and thru node edit actions I alter it's appearance ( add - delete - stretch ).

Example: Motorhome graphics: take a lower case, script font, letter "v" flatten it out, stretch it left-to-right, and convert to curves (where needed) and add or delete nodes to get the look you need. Script-type "S" with the top half chopped off, rotated 90 degrees, and then flattened out can make for nice underline efects or flower stems, or car grahphics. The next time you need a special effect for a job, look to your font list and let your imagination work overtime.
