Damn the Man, Save the Empire

Damn the Man, Save the Empire - student project

I'm a beginner so I've got a love of work to do, but the practice is really good! I used a quote from one of my favorite movies, Empire Records!

I did the shortened phrase while watching the class.

Then after the class, I decided to do the whole phrase, sketching it out in pencil first.

I thought the d & a in damn looked weird and "save" was too close together so I tried to fix them.

And then I traced it and colored in the downstrokes with a Paper Mate felt tip pen, a little too thick than an ink pen, but I was just playing around!

It could be better, but not a bad start!

Thanks for the informative class! I'm going to keep practicing my letters and then move on to trying brush pens :)
