Heavy Weight with Pattern
So for your next prompt I'm gonna have you go ahead and do something that is super heavyweight and have you put a pattern in the heavyweight um or in the letter form itself you can start with any type of letter form that you want any shape things could be overlapping they could be doing um they can really be doing anything this is really a chance for youto play around a little bit um and as faras patterns go you could do something in geometric um uh you can also do something you could put a wood green pattern in something or something maybe a little bit more illustrative if you were into the last prompt and wanted to keep on getting fancy with your letters I'm going to do the word play next uh and I think because I'm doing the wordplay I'm also going to stagger my letters a little bit and make them overlap this isn't something that you need to dio but with heavyweight letters in order to not have the word end up being giant since its heavyweight sometimes you want to throw in a little ...
bit of overlap no. Okay, so did the word play with a little bit of play going on in there uh and then for my pattern I started with a really condensed diagonal line and then with each letter I had it's based out a little bit more ah, good thing to choose for. This prompt is maybe not necessarily the longest word, because it is going to be heavy weight. Um, but if you're trying to fill a particular space, you might want to make your letters really tall and a little bit more condensed. Even though they're heavy or have a lot of overlap going on, you get a few different options. I know you have less and less words left to choose from. Um, so pick something that, uh, might be fun to put a little bit of extra extra decoration. And, um, okay, so I will see you in a few when you were done with that problems.
