Lucky to be alive

This is my original project for this class, since I didn't wanted to delete it, my project for the workshop will be below this one.

Hi Andrea, I love that you're teaching this new class, I loved Fundamentals for drawing letters. I hope you can teach a lot more in the future.

First I did the excercises planned for the class. I don't have a brush pen or brush marker so I used (I'm not sure of the name in english) a waterbrush (the ones used for watercolor) which is the one I've been using since I started exploring brush lettering, my pulse is the worst but I compensate a little bit by holding the instrument below from where you said we should, it gives me more control but less range of movement horizontal, I constantly have to move my hand and the strokes break sometimes, and I was wondering if you know something I can do about it. Thanks.


Then, I selected the phrase Trick or treat, just because it was everywhere so I started playing with it. I came up with an arrangement that pleased me and started sketching.


And finally I made my final piece and retouch it until I felt that it was done.


I hope I accomplished the class goals.

Now, this is the project I came up with for the workshop:

First of all, I made the excercises, which I now do one page every day and before every project I start:




Then I practiced with 3 diferent alphabets:




And then I practiced those letters which I has trouble with


Then, I chose my phrase "Lucky to be alive" and practiced it




And, finally after deciding the composition and taking it to cardboard it looked like this:
