Scan & Illustrator; 1h

Another little Christmas illustration I decided to do today. The thought behind this was to create a Calligraphy that flows from top to bottom. Thinking about a subject, I then choose the word "Christmas" and wrote it in a way it can be seen as Christmas tree shape; which is also why I added a star on the top.

After sketching and scanning, I used Illustrator to trace the type and apply some effects.

I used techniques explained in my "Create a Light Painting, Bokeh Effect in Illustrator – Vector Premium Tutorial" on vector.tutsplus.com
The example deviation is "Be My Light by"

Hope you like it :peace: :heart:

Maybe wiggly camera method or someone with flashlights write it ;D I never tried one of those. My bf did some wiggly camera ones that came out pretty neat. He'd all make the white balance all whack so the colors looked neon and wonky, then he'd slowly turn the camera back and forth. Abstract and colorful. ;D It is fun to play with light. I love those lightpainting pictures and videos. They give me happy feelings.

I think you need long exposure and a tripod :B at least that may work… but I don't think I'd be able to do the actual writing, not being able to see what I'm doing :slow:
