Some custom lettering (in progress) for an album cover. Trying a new style I am not that accustomed to so feedback is welcomed.

Looks beautiful Matthew.
Looks really nice Matthew. I think the 'f' would benefit from a little protrusion coming off the left side of the middle adornment. Similar to the bottom stem. Super minor details though.
Beautiful, I'd love to see the whole thing!
@Anthony, thanks for the feedback, I will give it a shot. I am trying to find the balance of making it look hand-drawn but not too sloppy (for lack of a better word right now).
Loving this Matthew!
Gorgeous! This is amazing
Really loving the swashes on the A's. I've been meaning to try lettering, but have been afraid thus far. Beautiful job! I also really enjoy the textured background - though (constructive criticism) I might take it down a notch or two. Just a tiny bit, since the lettering is so beautiful.
Though I'm not too keen on that F in general, as it is now I'm with Anthony -- it looks like it's ready to topple over without some balance on the left. Maybe even just a wider bottom serif to stabilize it a touch.
However, I *love* that second A. Well played.
@Sarah, thanks, the texture is no way final. I am going to play around with some different levels and styles before its done.
@T.J. I will give the F some more consideration. Thanks!
(odd question) What dot paper / types of paper do you like to draw type on? I am teaching myself more about lettering & type design as a 2011 resolution/goal. (8 years on my to-do list)
Thanks Nicole. Its actually not an odd question, I get asked it very often. I use Behance's Dot Grid Notebook for all my sketches now. They are great books for the price and quality of paper. Good luck on your resolution.
Thanks Matthew! I will have to check out the book, I had a feeling that is what it was. Keep them coming!
