Typography Examples. Sketch > Digital

Hi guys (and gals),

I'm currently working on a project where my AD has asked me to illustrate the process of drawing up the words 'The End'. From the sketch, to the final digital version in illustrator / type program. Its for a large client (Panasonic) and I need to version this in 26 languages, and I need to do 3 or 4 stages for each one. (Sketch / Firming Up / Scanned in and illustrated / Final). aghh!

The font is set, Din Condensed Medium. So what I need to do is retro fit the idea to the font...

Sadly, I'm no expert typographer! I've built/tested a couple in my spare time for the fun of it, which is why I've been asked to do this.

So I wondered if anyone knows of any nice examples or tutorials of people drawing up there type. I'm just looking for the style of drawing, and what kind of grids/lines people use to help sketch, and then firm up their designs.

Any help, much appreciated,
Rob.

This is confusing. So, you KNOW the word 'The End' is going to be set in Din, but your AD is asking for pencil sketches? Why?

Either way, I guess I'd: Set the type, print it, grab a pencil, hit the light table and trace.
