Sketch for fun from a few weeks ago which I have had absolutely no time to work on since. Am hoping that posting it will magically clear some free time for it... Struggled with the 't' crossbars (maybe they should be more different?) and not quite sure about the big gaps left inside the 'E'..

I like. Keep playing with the t's though...maybe a shorter right side on those cross sections?
Cheers for the feedback Tyler! I had that at first, but wanted to balance out everything that's going on on the left side of the word.. The right part of the crossbars may be too close to the other letters though - will keep trying stuff out. Thanks!
Your work is so enjoyable to look at. A beauty Claire. The curves on the 'E' and 't' are just gorgeous, and that 'r' is a gem :)
Thank you very much, Joe! I'm thrilled you noticed the 'r'.. I often find a cursive 'r' pretty tricky and was quite pleased with how this one came out.
Wow. What beautiful script. great hands Claire. You have to be a good driver. :) Second 'n' could maybe use the same glyph. All good though.
So far so good! Before I even read Josh's comment, I was going to make the same suggestion regarding the 2nd 't' incorporating the dot of the 'i'.
Also love that 'r' ...
That 'r' is slick. I think the suggestions that you got for the 't' glyphs are equal to what I would suggest. Great job!
Josh and Reagan - Great suggestion, I love it. It would mirror the lower 'E' swash too, which would solve another issue I had regarding the second half of the word having much less going on.. Thanks a lot, both of you!
Ced - Thanks very much! My idea with the second 'n' was to help bring in the last few letters, but then again, I do have a soft spot for n's that go under the baseline.. (and as for driving, that would be probably be the case were I not so easily distracted by disastrous typography on the side of trucks..)
Brandon - Cheers, appreciate it!
Wesley - Thanks a lot, glad you like it!
There she is again, I just knew right away that this was your work when I saw the shot. Looks great Claire!
I was curious though as to why the last e isn't connected to the n? I like how it looks, just wondered why you chose to do that. And if you'd make the crossbars on the T a bit thinner it might work better.
Great stuff, you should definitely make some time to finish this one up!
Thanks for your wonderful feedback as always, Yassine! It's great to hear your thoughts. You're right about the 't' crossbars; I usually end up having to adjust the weights a lot when vectoring as I'm always off a bit when sketching. For the 'e-n', it was mostly to have something different going on in that half of the word (rather than simply connecting it) to try to balance out the first part.
Not much to say that hasn't been said, but love it. Especially the 'ne' interaction.
Everything you do is absolutely gorgeous Claire, this one isn't an exception! E isn't an issue at all I think, it is quite balanced with the rest. Remembering our recent short talk about difficult letters I'd mention that your "R"s are pretty awesome! As for the "T"s I'd just try to make it lil bit different and maybe play with their horizontal strokes going further trying probably to horizontally invert it...but notice I'd just try it only for experiment as I always do so it's not a suggestion:) As Joe said it's always a pleasure to see what you do!
So, you're back from break? Lovely shot! I have one thought, that maybe you will be able to put 'r' upper-right part little higher to the baseline of the word. Disconnected e-r looks pretty good to me, whole word has a great flow. Can't wait to see it in action :-)
Maybe the cross bars on the t's could hug the top of the e and the a? I love the ne.
Guess one prost for Type Division is almost ready;)
Sean - Thanks a lot, always good to hear from you. Glad you like the 'n-e'!
Sergey - Really appreciate the thoughtful feedback, thanks very much! The good thing about difficult letters is that you spend extra time on them to compensate.. glad it works! I really like your idea for the 't's, especially looking at the second one, as it could help connect it to the dot of 'i'.
As for Type Division - maybe! I do have the rough sketches lying around, so they might come in handy sometime.. (That said, not if I don't get that bio done first..!)
Milosz - Back for now anyway! Thanks very much, happy you like it. You may be right about that part of the 'r' (especially on the first one), looking at it now it does seem a little short. Will work on that - hopefully there won't be too much of a break between the sketch and the vector :)
Finn - Thanks very much!
Adam - Thanks for the feedback, hadn't though of that for the 't's - could work, especially if I horizontally invert the crossbars first. I'll give that a shot, cheers!
Not much to say that hasn't already been said, but you know I dig it. Excellent work as always Claire!
Rockin' out on this technical drawing! ;o) The only thing that bothers me is the first _r_ seems squished into the space it occupies. It looks a bit short and optically light, but it's hard to tell at the angle you took the photo. Maybe the first _t_ cross bar could flare upwards so as not to confine the _er_ combo underneath it?
Very interesting work and very interesting comments too :)
Michael - Thanks very much for the support and kind words, always great to hear from you!
Dave - Ha, thanks! Yep good call for the 'r', I often find it hard to get the balance even everywhere in a pencil sketch (or technical drawing for that matter..) I definitely think that's what I'll try for the 't's - it'll work for connecting the 'i' dot on the second one, too. Thank you for the thoughtful feedback!
Ivan - Thanks a lot! Yeah it's great the discussion and ideas on concept sketches especially, helps with the motivation to keep going with it too.
