heya folks, good to be back

I managed to free some time in these busy days. In the end I mirrored the dude but acidentally the font was also mirrored, but I noticed that after I merged them down. bummer, better luck next time. It containes a lot of the errors that my initial sketches also had, I'm not making very much progress in the cartoon world, especially when it comes to drawing humans.

PS | 1.5 H
