Ayu-yeye | Skillshare Projects


Hello Matt.

I am bringing a project I did on another class which I thought I was satisfied with, but after watching your class, I realized I wanted to take it to the next level and I need your help (input) with it.

I don't have the pens you own, but I had resorted to a couple of options that would help me achieve the look I wanted:


During the process of doing the drills you mentioned on your class, I tried the PITT pen which I thought was the closest one to TomBow pen, but I found the tip to be too rigid. The purple brush pen was too soft and bled a lot for my slow movement. The sharpie brush marker was the one I started working with:


*I stared at this still from your video for hours*



I can't seem to get the thinner up-stroke down thus far. I am not sure if it is because the marker bleeds too much since my beginner stroke is too slow, but watching you I believe a TomBow (or similar longer tip) marker would serve me better for my drills, do you agree?

The caligraphy pen is what I used for my last project. Here are some examples of the initial work with it:




*I made some marks of my favorites "A's"*


After vectorizing, this is what I came up with:


I was quite happy with my result, I even made some stickers at work for my personal use:


My plan is to continue working on my drills, but do you think I should get another pen? Should I stick with pen and paper? I am going to go back to the drawing board with this project and apply what I learned from watching you, but I will definitely appreciate your input.

Thank you in advance for your time.
