The pen tool at first can be quite tricky to use, however it became easier as I went on and additional because of the will power I had building up inside.
As a guide using a scanned, hand-drawn image of as the a template I was able to have a rough guide of where I would apply various paths, of different shapes and strokes. As a result, I began creating paths in the direction of the of the script .Result
Once I had done this I later returned to a few of the paths that I made, adjusted the anchor points with the direct selection tool and added if need using the pen tool. After I had edited the paths and anchor points I sampled some brushes sizes and textures.
