Some more quick lettering practice from last night. Not sure about the cross on the second 't', ah well.

This has such a nice dynamic feel to it, I really like it. The extended 'x' stroke is a perfect touch! As is the little flick at the start of the 't' crossbar. I think the cross on the second 't works, it's possibly a little straight but you get a good feeling of movement from it which works well. Personally, I find 't' crossbars surprisingly annoying to get right. (@Sergey Shapiro always draws amazing ones) Oh and your 'e' looks good!
@Claire Coullon Thank you for all of your comments, Claire! The 'x' is definitely my favourite part. I might actually pull this one in to Illustrator, we'll see, so I will definitely plan on making the 't' crossbar a little looser to see if it flows in to the second one better.
And I haven't even done my 'e' practice pages yet! Haha
Yeah this one would definitely be worth vectoring, gives you a lot more control. Ha - even more impressive for the 'e' then!
Fine 'ex' ligature. =)
Looks great, Terra! I absolutely love T-T ligatures, and as Claire pointed out before, that little flick you've got happening on yours adds a little something extra. I also love how it create a nice little frame to show off that lovely E-X ligature, which is even further emphasized by the way that second T's spur nestles beautifully within the end stroke of the X. And that R is just gorgeous.
At this angle the TURE part looks a little heavy compared to the rest, but that may be the angle of the shot. If not, I would suggest evening out the letter thicknesses in Illustrator (if you do decide to vectorize).
Very nice script, overall. Feels very mid-century modern to me.
