Progress on my cousins logo... liking it so far. In this photo the angle looks a little strange on the "Bear" but I promise in person it is a lot more accurate! The "Glass" part is also smaller in person, but as it is the most finished part right now I figured I'd showcase it a bit.
I'll be adding a bunch of wood carving type detail to the "Great Bear" which will hopefully help even out the letters - right now the "E" is much too big... hopefully it wont be a do over. (:
This is mostly for practice, but as always I love getting feedback!

I am LOVING the word "BEAR" in this so much.
It's great to see this, it really looks fantastic so far! I love the combination of styles, the bold, solid lettering of 'Bear' contrasts the 'Glass' script so nicely. I like how critical/observant you are about the details in your work, it doesn't leave much to critique though :D
That updated stroke inside the 'G' looks miles better now by the way. I love that you've left that 'L' loop open too, it's a wonderful touch that adds some nice continuity with the 's's. The far right curve on the swash coming from the last 's' looks perhaps a bit too thick, but it's any easy fix later on. Love the 'EA' in bear! Really unique.
@Jason Krieger Thanks Jason!! It still needs some more work but that is so nice to hear. (:
@Claire Coullon Thank you once more for your feedback :D I love reading your comments... totally see the far right curve on the last 's' is much too thick, I didn't even realize! Thanks for noticing it.
And yeah I can be such a perfectionist, which at times is great but it also can make my work feel rigid... I will also try and fix something that doesn't need fixing and end up ruining it. :P I think that happened in a few places here. The more and more that I look at it I think I will have to do another revision on this, just can't decide whether or not to pull it in to illustrator or to do it by hand...
Anyways, now I'm on a rant, haha. Thanks again for your comments, I really appreciate it!
Haha it's cool, I do the same (both the over-tweaking and the long comments, which I'm sure you've noticed!). It's really hard to know when to leave things with natural imperfections/variations and when to obsess over details.. From this shot, I'd be tempted to say you're good to go to Illustrator directly as it'll be easy to shrink the 'E', adjust that swash weight, etc. Either way, looking forward to seeing the next step!
Looks good @Terra!
@Joseph Alessio Thanks Joseph!! Means a lot coming from you!
