Easy Desert Scene Lettering


Hey Tombow fans, it’s Mandy from @thebrewtifulword showing you how to create an easy desert scene inside your lettering! This project is inspired by all the desert and boho-themed art I’ve been seeing everywhere. Are you a fan too? Great! Let’s gather our supplies and get started!

MATERIALS

STEP 1 – Letter out desert

Using Dual Brush Pen 899, letter out the word desert onto your first sheet of marker paper. Add extra downstrokes to both the left and right sides of each letter to make it look thicker and chunkier. The chunkier the letter, the better! I tried out 2 ways to letter it out and liked the bottom the best because the letters looked better spaced out.

Next, put that piece of paper onto your light pad (turn it on), and then put the second piece of marker paper directly on top of the first.  Use the MONO Twin Permanent Marker to trace the outline of your letters. This marker is perfect for this since the ink is permanent and won’t smudge when adding color later on.

STEP 2 – Create the desert scene

Using the MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil, draw lines through the whole word to represent the sand. Then draw a sun shape at the top of the letter t.

Next, use Dual Brush Pen 933 to color in the top part of your sand inside the letters only.

Using MONO Drawing Pen 02, draw lines that follow each color of sand, and outline the sun shape.
