practice makes better

I have been working through several skillshare classes and this one caught my eye because of the use of brush pens. I was eager to get better with a brush pen and practice more with lettering so here's my project.

I played with several pens I already had and practiced basic strokes.

Then I started tracing different alphabets I liked with various pens.

More practice and much more not shown.

Once I decided my phrase, of which I thought very fitting for this class, I tried writing it out several ways.

Then I got it pretty close to how I wanted it and traced with pencil before inking with a fine tip marker for the final piece.

Once it was inked, however, I felt it lost the rough, imperfect quality of my brush pen version, so I went back to it!

And there you have it, all that practice and I think I might be getting better!
