  • I tried this out with a helix which got interesting results.

  • thats very elegant ej. ty!

  • What annoys me about this guy’s tutorials is he never goes over the most important stuff, which is – in this case – the setup of the spline wrap and the various small details that come with doing this. Kinda puts us into a spot where we can’t really follow along.

    My 2 cents.

    • Hello there!

      I do skip over some details but I also explain why I do skip them over in this case because of the fact that I have another tutorial (a few, actually) that goes in depth on cursive logo setups that I mention off the top and provide links for. But the most important part of this tutorial is once you make something using Spline Wrap (whatever that may be, shoe strings, etc) how to make it all sproingy! 🙂
