A work-in-progress sketch of a logo that I'm designing for my sister-in-law's new business venture. She asked for a strong letter that didn't sacrifice too much warmth. With that in mind, a soft and heavy script seemed to be in order.

So smooth and nice!
that's looking awesome great job!
This is so great! If someone asked me about a "strong letter that didn't sacrifice too much warmth" I'd be so confused, haha! Excellent interpretation. Looking forward to further iterations.
Wonderful work, the shape seems organic, legible, and the outlines' weight is very well considered. The G looks like it can be both uppercase and lower case with a slight adjustment if you want. Too cool..
Solid work! I like how the descender on the second 'G' casts a curved shadow on the under-looping swash giving the stroke a nice, round, three-dimensional feel.
Thanks for all the positive feedback.
@Bobby: I decided to keep an uppercase script construction for the 'G' (which can look an awful lot like a scaled-up lowercase 'g') to reinforce the light-hearted appearance.
@Sean: I toyed around with the idea of adding a similar underlining stroke to the initial 'G' in order to fill the small gap beneath the first 'o'. However, I thought that might be too redundant, while rendering the second 'G' less unique.
Nailed it (as always), and it all pencil? I'm envious…
I love the way the extensions of both "G"s seem to balance each other out. Super smooth, great work!
I love that they dont match, really adds a uniqueness to the piece, also this is smooth like no other
@Diane: Yep, all done with a regular ol' No. 2 pencil. Though, I did quickly go over a few of my initial sketches with a black Sharpie marker so that it was easier to discuss the ideas with my sister-in-law.
@Ashleigh and Neil: Thanks. I was thinking the same thing: balance out either side of the mark by making the the Gs non-symmetric, yet complementary in their swashy entry and exit strokes.
Very nice flow.
