Here is my first attempt to typographic drawing.
Recently I have been looking many cool typos on web, they made place in my head :) and I draw some letters here as I remembered : ) so I don't take full credit for some. ps, sorry for bad photo, taken with mobile under terrible light.
attached for full view. comments are much appreciated!

Your first attempt? I don't believe it ;) Some really great letters you have here.
ahaha thanks @Regina :)
I've always loved drawing, doing my best to involve it to my digital works, I do wireframes with pen/paper, etc. but yes first time for typographic drawing :) recently I'm so much into typography!
Brilliant! That center one is awesome! I love the 'E' on the right too. Great work :)
thanks @Jonathan ! great to hear that from "you" as experienced in typography!
the middle one is my name "oykun" , I doubt if it's clear enough :)
Looks ace. Especially considering it's your first! Impressive!
Thanks @Emir ! I have a lot to learn, typography is very deep! already ordered some books :)
For a first attempt, you've nailed it. Scary to think of what you could produce with more practice!
haha thanks @Zane :D really enjoying with drawing letters :) I will definitely carry on that!
I really like this Oykun! I hope you take some of these from paper to production. They would look smashing.
Looking good, but you can definitely improve them by either using a circle ruler or by vectorizing them.
@Hamish Thanks! I will definitely give a try to some of them with Photoshop. :)
@Ant thanks, they definitely need improvements, these are just some idea sketching, made on sofa with coffee... :)
First attempt! Jeez! I hope you post your second attempt. :)
haha Thanks @Emily :) second, third, tenth, thousandths will come for good :D
Great! I wanna see more sketches!
Thanks @Debashis !
Thanks @Simon ! great to hear that from an experienced typographer like you! sure you will see more and more :) ps, I'm HUGE fan of your work!
Wow, this is beautiful Oykun!
I love your sketches.
thanks guys! :) sketching stuff makes life fun, restful to me :)
Nice one man!
Is that B at the bottom based on Jessica Hische's Dropcap B? (I ask 'cause it reminded me right away and I recently received a print of that B in the mail.)
I am also really digging the texture on the I.
ah Brekk thanks for the link! I have been thinking where I remembered that one, while drawing :) as I noted at my first message, I have been looking a lot to awesome typos on web, and I draw some of them days later as I remembered :)
