I think the structuring of this one needs some more work. The lobe needs some fine tuning in terms of the roundness, also the top stem looks a little heavier in weight than the bottom, I think I may need to rotate it so that the top is at the bottom. Also need to fine tune the tail a little bit to make it rounder.

More loveliness! :D
Those vertical flourishes are so beautifully drawn, it's amazing how you can essentially create the impression of the stem without having a filled in, solid shape. Rotating it would make a lot of sense as that heavier top part does feel like it'd work well as a base. Love how you did the little curl at the end of the tail!
Thank you @Joseph! :)
@Claire Thank you! I had a different idea initially which was not working out, this idea came from an 'I' that I drew previously which I still need redraw and ink. Glad you agree about the weight of the stem, which means it's not me just being picky. Thank you, need to adjust the roundness of it a bit.
Oh I'm really curious to see your 'I' soon too if it's anything along these lines. (Imagine if we both start being picky about the same pieces.. we'll never get anything done, ha.)
@Claire Haha that is true! The 'I' isn't as elaborate as this one, but it kind of stems from archery and cupid a little
Love your flourishes. Very feminine.
"...you're just too good to be true...can't take my eyes off of you...your curves are just oh so sweet...there's nothing that can compete..."
There. I couldn't have said it any other way.
This one is great. You already point out all you could change to make it even better, but I think it's my new favorite of yours ( and the B was a top-level ). A poster with a full alphabet would be a killer.
These are all so beautiful. I don't know why they don't have more likes.
@Vincent, @Emory Thanks so much for your lovely comments! :)
@Nikita hahah I feel special, now only if you could sing the song for me ;)
@Joachim aw thank you! which means I'm improving, my aim should be to make the next one your favourite :) Hopefully when I finish all I'll try to get a screen printed poster done of them together.
@Faheema, I'd be happy to sing it for you. Just find a local karaoke place and it's a done deal.
And if @Joachim is making requests and you're taking them, can I request an "N"?
nice one Faheema!
@Nikita hmm, good idea, maybe we should invite the others too! I'm yet to work on the N, I'm afraid to work on the N, and W and a few other letters which I think are a little more complex to do.
@Luna Thank you!
While we're talking about individual letters, I couldn't help but notice you skipped the 'C'... After all, It isn't half as daunting as an 'N' (Not trying to steal anything from you @Nikita)
Your lettering work is quite good! I'm glad I took a look! I'll be watching...
@Claire If you checked the comment I wrote on the P, I mentioned how I skipped many letters, purposely put that in there for you because I knew you would have picked up on it haha. I do have sketches for a C though. By the way @Nikita is putting on a karaoke show for us!
Yeah I remember reading that about the letter order, just thought I'd mention so you didn't forget the 'C' haha. Of course, looking forward to @Nikita's singing!
@Yael Thank you, hoping to keep improving!
@Claire haha, it just occurred to me your name starts with C (a bit slow there today) Gunna get working on that initial ;)
this is crazy @Faheema Patel

I know Mr. H doesn't look as elaborate as the other letters but I also wanted to try some simple ones although I'm not sure if he's gunna stand out from the crowd. Thoughts?
Maybe I might need to fill in the white stems with a solid black and inverse the arrows?

I have been following you, but seem to have missed all these beautiful shots. What lovely skills you have, nice to see such refined pen to paper artwork.
@Matt Thank you! I'm really enjoying it, being away from the pc and working with my hands it's quite relaxing. Glad you like the letters so far! :)
It's where the real magic happens I believe. Keep up the great work.
