approaches to redering a typface

I'm working on a few right now. two are geometrically pretty straightforward & simple. Easy and quick to draw digitally. Another is less so. virtually no straight lines. After getting about halfway though the uppercase in one weight, I'm thinking what I really want to do is draw the glyphs by hand, and scan them so all I'm doing (to the glyphs) on screen is a bit of clean-up and adjusting.

Anybody else been there, done that?

Yeah I do that most of the time actually. I find it easier to get curves looking right if I have a scanned hand drawn reference.
