It's totally possible to do a board this way though, but I wouldn't try anything too complicated, it's hard to get the spacing right and draw fine traces close to each other.
I used to use perf board when I first started, and just copied the pcb layout with the component leads.

If you insist on using the etch pen, you may want to consider more than one coat but, once again it may be tough to get quality traces. Who knows maybe you have a shitload of patience.
