Metal Lettering Help

Hi. Can someone help me figure out how to design “metal band” lettering in Acorns?


Hello, and welcome.

For those two examples, they look like the original source was a drawing, possibly a painting.

What I would do is use a tablet (like an iPad hooked up to a Mac as an external screen) or something from Wacom if you already have one, and use the brush tool in Acorn to draw out what I’m after. I’d start with a very large image so you have plenty of room to work with, and so the final image is crisp.

With a bunch of work, you could probably get this done with the bezier tool. The advantages of this are that you’ll have nice crisp lines for whatever resolution your final image is. The disadvantage is that it’ll take a lot of work and time to get it right.

Basically, I don’t think there’s really one tool to just pop out this type of lettering, rather it’s a bunch of work done by an artist.
