Here is Part 1 of 2 (see below for the linke to part 2) of the second of my adventures into comics lettering tutorials. This one has lots more picture examples, so I had to split it into two parts. This isn't so much a direct tutorial as an exploration of some of the theory behind different uses for lettering. For example, here we'll be talking about: creating emphasis using bold and italics, the effects of breaking up dialogue in different ways, the use of the double dash (--) and ellipsis (...), color and typography. In the first tutorial we learned what buttons to press, now we're going to talk about how to use that knowledge!
Special thanks to
who did the art for most of the example pictures.
Again, I'd like this to be a work in progress, so please give me your questions, comments, complaints, and general feedback!
