Great love the x
I love the shape of the f into the y, beautiful as always!
Your inking is always so clean. Do you auto trace then clean up, or just trace it with the pen tool?
@Kyle Gallant I actually use a variety of methods. This and this started with auto trace and then manual modifications. This and this were outlined with the pen tool.
The shot you're looking at was made with single strokes of the pen tool, and then the width tool used on top of the stroke. I did one before, but looking back, I don't think it was very well done at all. I'm still not very comfortable with the width tool, but I am trying to force myself to get better at it. While I think the "Exemplify" piece is much better, it's still a bit clumsy in places (especially at large sizes) where I'm still struggling to get the width points to behave—they are quite mischievous and like to do weird things when place next to nearby anchor points. I'm still working to figure out a remedy for it.
Right on, thanks for the detail response. I've had similar experiences with the width tool. Sometimes it seems to act oddly on curtain curves. Like auto trace, I think it probably needs a little manual love and care. Cheers.
@Sean McCabe @Kyle Gallant glad to hear I'm not the only one still experimenting with the width tool. It does act wonky around some of the curves. It gets a little blocky or not so fluid for me. You seemed to have mastered it though, atleast by this image.
