Benevolent Dictator Color Test

Benevolent dictator color test

Here's an image that I didn't include in the overview of this project on my site: http://typeandlettering.com/lettering/benevolent-dictator. Considering that this isn't the way I typically go about working, I figured it was a good idea to test materials before I got in over my head. After finally settling on ivory cold press illustration board, I began experimenting with various pencil colors and brands, noting each test section as I went along. The pigment in many of the pencils proved too soft for the tooth of the board, so I finally settled on a metallic gold Prismacolor.
