michaeljpatrick: As I mentioned before, I don't always follow these rules myself. I totally didn't for this tutorial which is hella ironic. But since I didn't follow the rules I can't complain when my lettering looks crappy! Keep that in mind when you are lettering. If it looks like crap it's because you didn't care enough! Any literate person can make letters. It just takes time and patience.
juano: the "use caps only" is very important, it took me a while to figure it out. there will be a number of situations where lower-case lettering might look better, but in 99% of the kind of comics or stand-alone panels that are drawn here, all-caps is the way to go. it's not yelling if everybody speakings in upper case!
