I've been lurking here for a while and I really love the forum, very helpful! So, I finally decided to post something to be critiqued. This is something that I did with a crow quill pen and so far I have just caps and lowercase done. I'm working on trying to get everything to connect and this is the first time I've tryed something like this and it's kind of hard.<br>

hey jess, i've been a fan of yer work for some time. I really like this one! getting all the connections right can be a pain esp for guys with ADD like me. The only thing i'd say for now is that i'd like to see this one in some longer settings, just to get a better feel of how all the caps fit in with the lc. but keep up the good work!

The caps, they look a bit too heavy and maybe too big... I guess you could reduce them just a little.
And the 'Z' looks odd somehow.

Nice font!

I was thinking the caps were too heavy too so I'm glad that a few of you confirmed that! I'll take what everyone has said and see what I can do. Thanks!!

hey jess, anything new on this one?

Hi Paul,
Not really. I started working on other projects and kind of forgot about it. That's my biggest problem as a font designer, hee.

Very nice. I agree with Eduardo's comment about the weight of your caps. A couple letters that might need a variant for connection ... j? (looks like a y sitting next to the i) ... The u going into the v? (looks like a w) ... and the v is it too abrupt? ... Is perhaps the A is a little too rotated? Could the bowl of the p be a little more curvy? Is the downward stroke on the back of the p too stiff? Is the s a little to wide/open?

Love the stroke modulation by the way. Reminds me of Doris Day and Cary Grant movies.
