This is a tutorial I created that gives a basic overview on how to lettering a comic book page. I've had quite a few questions on lettering lately, so I figured I would just write down how I work.
Please visit www.balloontales.com
for the most comprehensive collection of lettering advice online. You should definately read the entire site if you want to letter. Also, www.digitalwebbing.com/forums
is a forum where some great letterers hang out, and they are always willing to share advice. These are the two sites I used when first starting out, and continue to use.
I would like for this tutorial to be a work in progress, so please leave comments, suggests, and further questions!

I do mostly writing and lettering, so if you need someone or want to toss around ideas, please drop me a note! I'd love to see more comics action happening around Deviantart, even beyond just posting stuff!
