I took both of Martina's class, so instead of working with my name, I drew a quote from Harry Potter.

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."

I did the same process with the word DREAMS and then drew the entire thing again to make both words work together


Then I scanned it, created A LOT of guides and drew it with the pen tool.

This is the final result:
