Smile YdAo’s Lettering Thread

Hello, before starting I’d like to apologize if I do English mistakes: I’m from France.

After a long period of observation I want to show you some examples of my lettering work, to get some feedback or advices to improve it.

To start with recent work, here are the logo and pages from the first chapter of With The Earth Above Us, a graphic novel project by Lee Milewski, who started a Kickstarter campaign for it.:












I use Adobe Illustrator. For the imperfect balloon style, I did a previous attempt on Fractal Friction pages that Jim Campbell shared on his blog:






I’ll post other examples from projects I’ve worked on, but let me know what you’re already thinking about these ones. Thanks!

YdAo

Doesn't look bad, but I think the point size is a bit too small.

NicShaw is on a distinguished road

Fractal Fiction and Soldier Boys do seem to have a font size that is slightly too small.
Some of your ballons have a little to much "Air" in them. I do the same thing I've discovered.

I really like the shape of your balloons too!
Overall, it's all very pleasing to me!

Nice Job!
