Graffiti Lettering Contest #4 (GRIP)

(Edited)

This is my entry to @trippymane's Graffiti Lettering Contest #4 (GRIP)

I am not an artist, but like to doodle sometimes. The second I saw the prompt word "GRIP" for this contest, an idea popped into my head immediately! I tried to execute it the best I could. My eyesight isn't great sometimes and the arthritis in my hands keeps me from controlling the pens/pencils as nicely as I once could, but hey...

Our prompt word was: GRIP

So, my idea was a hand, making a fist and GRIPping the letters tightly. In fact, they are being gripped so tightly that the "dot" over the letter "i" is actually splurts of fluid coming from the letter as it ruptures under the grip of the hand. 😂

I only got a couple of "in-process" shots. Here is the first, after the letters had been penciled-in, and while I was inking:

Then one more shot after the inking was done and before I started with the colored pencils:

Other shots were not made because I was so immersed in what I was doing! I honestly don't know how real artists think to document a dozen-or-more steps as they work! But, there ya have it, my take on GRIP!

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

I love it! The hand gripping on the letters it's the extra touch that makes this a really cool drawing! And I like the colors a lot 😁 I see now when you say that you have a nice idea for the contest 😎

I was meant to post the voting post yesterday evening but I must say that I am happy I delayed it to today (will be up in the next 1-2 hours) so I can fit in your participation too, when I say 7 days expiry I'm mainly just following the voting payout timing but as I always said I do not mind litte delays especially now that we are in the first stages of the contest.

Thanks for your participation and the best of luck! 🤩

I thought about coloring the fingernails pink, but decided to keep it generic! 😂
