My first letter was created completely in Studio Artist. Since I wanted all the rest of the letters to have the same baseline and size, it was easier to set a black letter in photoshop and the imported it. I use region selection to create a mask.
You know, I looked at the bezier aspect of SA early on. Coincidentally I was spending a lot of time in Illustrator in my "day" job. I was sort of burned out on paths and perfection and so on. The hand drawn lines in this image were a hold over of that mentality.
