"Practice" T-Shirt Lettering & Quillustration

Forums: 

Hey y'all,

I had the pleasure of having a piece of lettering and illustration accepted to the newly formed, designer-driven, profit sharing t-shirt company Cotton Bureau. I have two more days to achieve 3 more pre-orders, or nobody gets to sport my intricately crafted design. Would love to see this go to print and worn with pride, I'm not sure why I didn't think to post this here earlier. Here's the link: https://cottonbureau.com/products/practice

What's wrong with this? Chiseled C looks bad.

Forums: 

Dear Typophile

I'm trying to use my mark as in an illustration, where I'd like the A & C part seem as if it was chiseled.
If I may say so myself, I think my A is quite okay. But the C is driving me mad!

I'd like to convey the effect in only two colours, and all the c's presented seems a bit off to me. Number 4, of course, is the most sketchy one. Just wanted your take on it, before I go on.

best regards
Mads

Custom Script Help

Forums: 

I'm working on some custom script and this is my first time trying to pull off something this ornate. I know there are some serious issues with this guy, but I'd love some helping identifying some priority fixes since this goes to print in less than 24 hrs. Any feedback would be very appreciated!

Also, I started cutting away sections of the path where things overlap, to give it a ribbony, dimensional feel. Do you prefer with or without?
