I like this font...at first glance, I thought that it had
graf stylings, but looking at it a little longer, I'm
seeing a Whimsy-like face with some character.

It looks like your original intention (and the source
of your frustration) was to have nice, smooth curves.
But to me it looks like the letters are a little
choppy/chunky...and that's a good thing. It has
a very hand drawn look.

From what I see here, my suggestion would be to
even out the size & weight of the characters.
The "e" seems a little small in relation to the other
characters. But on the other hand, I think that
variation adds to the hand drawn feeling. The stem
of the "m" also looks a little heavy in relation to the
rest of the lines...

I say keep it up and post more examples!

About the typeface: Guhfaw

This playful typeface can be used for two-color work for special effects.

How would a set of capitals work?

Do you know when it will be available at Myfonts.com?

Yours truly,
Robert

Sorry Mr.Donona I don't happen to sell my fonts, thanks for the comments though.
Capitals are still in my sketchbook waiting to be turned into vectors.
