Hand-rendering & Hand-kerning Letters

2 x 4 hour studios weren't nearly long enough.

First 4 hours: Draw up lines & hand-render the letters of your name, 10 x each letter, in two different fonts. Try to be as true to those fonts as possible. We had references but had to basically scale them up with no rulers. Try for 10 x each letter x each font. I have never regretted forgetting my mechanical pencil so much.

Last 4 hours: Choose the best of those letters & ink them. Then hand-kern (space) your letters to best possible effect.

I spent like 3 hours just inking the perfect letters.... then speed-kerned my alphabets.

Inked genius.

You can see my crazy white-out and lineup attempts here. HOOHAH.
