Sorry if this is a bad question. I've just finished an adobe illustrator course so my skills are extremely limited. I'd like to make a monogram but I'm not sure what the best process would be. (e.g. Taking a letter "N" font and modifying it, or making one from scratch)
Heres one I found on dribbble which I liked, but I'm struggling to figure out how it was done.
I tried taking a letter N from a font, expanding it, and then trying to make adjustments using the direct selection tool to no avail.
I also tried creating an "N" with the pen tool, but couldn't get the uniformity right on both curls - they never looked even.
Lastly, I took the rectangle tool and rounded it off, placed it at a 45 degree angle to make the centre "oblong". Then I tried to use the pen tool for the curls, by doing one side and copying it to the other.
