    Same here Homey. The last time we hit the streets the internet wasn't around. I got one in college, imagine if I got popped. I'm just bringing back the old flow. No joke, I got asked to do my company's logo for a t shirt design two months ago. Now it's at corporate for approval. I'm like you tho, this is just a side hustle hobby. Stay safe homey.

    Clean, consistent, and legible. I'd say that is a good way to start. And if you are worried about lettering, practice doing the entire alphabet. Build your letter structure. And practice, lots of practice. Don't worry about being grimy at first. We all are. Get up and stay safe.

    So you're giving me an example on how to start the sketch based on the horizontal lines, but if you saw me attempting to recreate something similar with the bits and connections would still say I was reaching? Or do you think I should just follow the process with a more simple letter structure and expand from there with 3d and color?

    I did the base simple letter then added styleiezd things after to add more depth . was just my way of showing you you need to learn the basic first becuse if i didnt know them I wouldnt have ben able to pull the first sketch off. Ill do up a actual simp for you. A "go to" but every thing after that is your own prefecnce once you mastered the basic simp. And as for learning other letters deff join the battles . some leters will always come up tho and is a good place to start. A e I o u sometimes y lol

    Alright man I look forward to it. And yeah I was trying to find time to do a drugs sketch, but after seeing that fire EBA sketch, it's hard to want to do something simple. Lol. I noticed that you only did 'inks'. I have definitely considered picking a different name becausea few times, with 7 letters it's definitely on the longer side of the spectrum. Not that it's too hard or I have a problem with the letters but I feel like you can go bigger with a shorter name and just have more options to work with. However, I have grown rather attached to it, and every other name I think I like, I look it up and there's always someone else rocking that name. So I consider finding a way to abbreviate it, and the only ways I can figure out are 'inks' and 'i.spot'. still working on that though

    Haha, there's an idea. I'll admit I'm pretty far from having any presentable characters though
