Time to vector this up. this is where things start to go wrong.
Any tips on what to do with the D and the g would be appreciated and as always any advice or comments really appreciated.

@Chris Beaumont nice typography ++
Looks great @Chris, I love the "eli" and "ts" especially, and how the terminal of the "y" picks up the i's tittle. Comments: The D and g (mainly the tail of the g) are too heavy. If you kept the overall weight consistent across all the characters I think it would fix the imbalance you're seeing. Really nice, is this for a client?
@Joseph Alessio Cheers man, really good advice. Some of the problems are down to covering inking mistakes so they'll be fixed when I vector it. This is a little exercise really, I often look around for briefs that I think I could experiment with and see where they take me.
Nice - I love your hand-lettered work! :)
@Virginia Poltrack Thank you, you have very beautiful illustrations. Not sure how I've only just discovered them.
Thanks @Chris Beaumont - the feeling is mutual :)
looking good chris! you stuff keeps getting better and better every time i see a shot! Thanks for the retweets too buddy!
@Neil Tasker Cheers man, that means a lot from you. No worries good luck with the t-shirts. If I had disposable income I'd be ordering some already
I really like this, the way both words fit together is perfect. I love how the 'hts' sits above the 'g' descender, it really helps everything feel cohesive and 'whole'. For the 'D' and 'g', I agree with @Joseph, I think other than the weight, their actual shapes are really nice. Top 'T' crossbar feels a bit heavy as well but it's an easy fix in vector. Can't wait to see the next step!
@Claire Coullon Thanks Claire your help is very much appreciated as always, really hope I can vector this up to perfection.
