Here's the Exchanges from what you had blessed me with...
There were alot of challenges, frustration, and fun in each of these
The experience definitely made me look at lettering thru your eyes and opened some new possibilities, so many thanks my man!
•My approach to the bottom two were to use the sketches pretty straight up with some of my own flow to feel more natural,(When I use sketches on walls, which is 90% of the time, I never duplicate whats on paper, as it usually feels less natural when transfered on a surface), so there will be inconsistency's for sure, but hope it was still translated effectively
•With the first silver joint the approach I took was interpreting that particular sketch/style and to make it more my own, so I made it more mechanical and less softer...
The jury is still out, as yours was real ill,(and stronger in my opinion), however I think it probably helped me understand and learn more thru that particular trial and error
•I apologize for the poor photographs, I really need to step my game up, and I was really frustrated/disappointed as my favorite one, the silver lost alot of the umph in the little nooks that made it my favorite (shadowing, cuts, blends, designs, hi-lites, crispness, etc)
Well, thanks again for all the time you took out to sketch those, I hope I did them a small justice, and look forward to more of the project
peace and respect,
