Color Your Lettering - Gatsby Style!
« on: November 08, 2013, 05:53:11 PM »
I was intrigued by the beautiful calligraphy subtitles at the beginning of The Great Gatsby movie and wanted to figure out how to do it. It's super easy and really fun! I hope you like it. I would love to see any examples you do!
