It turned out gorgeous and agree with the other comments on its realistic elements. Native American hair is beautiful and I think you've captured that wonderfully. As I am Native American, I'm curious as to how your research project went. O:

Honestly it was a bit half-assed, it was sort of a blow-off class and I was completely and utterly burned out last semester. I wish I'd researched it more thoroughly because my fascination with many Native American tribes is genuine, but mostly I looked at pictures and focused on visual elements.

This is so incredibly beautiful and successfully done. My favourite kind of typography :D Was this your first attempt at it? And how much planning was involved? You achieved the look of hair perfectly :aww:

Thanks!
Yes, it was my first attempt -- I did a tiny one-inch doodle of an 'F' in my sketchbook first and new immediately I wanted to make it a full piece. There was really no planning beyond that, just dove right in.

That's great. I do things the same way but rarely do they come out looking as planned haha.

Really cool looking. I love how realistic you made the hair look, right down to the frizzies about the ties.

This amazing artwork has been featured as a part of the "Today's Typography Treats" section in Typographysical appearance 2 - a news article issued by #Digiversity. If you have time, please take a look, there are a lot of interesting things concerning text art in there. :la:

I've seen quite a few attempts to do a 'hair' typeface, but this one is the best by far :)

thanks! i'd love to see some other attempts, if you have links on hand. i saw this one recently: [link] which is annoying similar to mine..

wow it is quite similar! I love you're use of detail and quirky little braided bits though.
Unfortunately most of the ones I've seen aren't on the net - I did a graphics course at uni where we had to form a typeface, and heaps of people tried using hair... some of them were photographed, some drawn... I'll try to find some of them for you!

Absolutely stuuning! The hair has so much movement and natural fall to it.... How long did it take you to finish it?

:iconteaganwhite:
teaganwhite Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2010  Professional General Artist

lol, i actually started it the night before it was due. probably about twelve hours -- didn't completely finish it on time, so i put in maybe two more hours of work later.

hahahaha why is it that designers and artists are compelled to leave everything for the day before it's due! Not that i judge, i'm one of those procrastinators myself. Firm believer that masterpieces can be made out of pressure and stress ;)
