Inspired by black letter and Arabic, I think it's a little bottom heavy though but if I filled in the main stem it wouldn't look as elaborate as it does now. Also the diamonds towards the right the border around it is a little thick maybe if I made the border in the main stem thicker it could help with balance.
Feedback welcome! :)

AMAZING! I love it! Congrats, great typo!! :-) @Faheema Patel
@Tobia Thank you! Glad you like it :)
@Faheema, absolutely gorgeous!!! Beautiful...just beautiful.
And the letter ain't bad either. ;)
My only comment: the elegant crosshatching and accents clash a bit with the heavier swashes at the bottom/right/top. Maybe make them a bit lighter and add some slight crosshatching as well?
It's great, Faheema!
@Nikita Thank you! I think if I added cross hatching to all it would then be too intricate and very spacious then when it's compared to the other letters it might not have that similar weight, though I could make the solid towards the bottom right in the cross hatching and leave the bottom left solid and top right one as is to have the balance. Will try your suggestion though as I can still fill it in after if I think it loses balance. :) How is your book coming along?
@Alexandr @John @RaitG @Michael @Jeff Thank you all for the kind comments, appreciate it! :)
amazing work mate! and you live in Barbados! Wow amazing Island. Now I guess why u're so creative :P
Thank you @Nuruzzaman but living on an island doesn't really define my artistic creativity. I actually think art isn't something many appreciate and explore here. A lot of my inspiration comes from looking outside and also my cultural background :)
So, so nice. I don't think this one feels too bottom heavy at all – on the contrary, I think the top fill balances it out really nicely. I love how the flourish starting on the right hooks back over behind the main stem, it's beautiful. (I'm finally catching up here by the way!)
Thank you @Claire for your feedback, it's always nice to have someone else's perspective on your work. Haha yes you're finally catching up! Can imagine you tackling your message centre ;)
