Finished all of the lowercase letters for both the joining version and non-joining version of Melondrop. What do you think?

Nice looking typeface.
@ben dunn @Joe Nicklo @Theresa Garritano thank you!
Hey Tyler, just seeing your work on these. I really like the continuity between both versions, yet they each have their own personality. There are some lovely letterforms throughout, I particularly like the loop of the top 'z', the upper diagonal of the 'k' and the ascenders of 'g' and 'y'.
In the connected version, I'm curious as to why the 'c' and 'e' don't extend to join the following letter? To me, they feel a little cut off at the minute, like they end a little abruptly compared to the flowing connecting strokes of letters such as 'a', 'd', 'm', etc. Anyway, just a thought – looking forward to seeing the next steps!
@Claire Coullon Thank you! I'm happy that you like to loop of the top 'z'. I have been back and forth probably twenty times on whether or not the loop fits. I plan on including extra glyphs with flourishes on many of the letters that fit the style of the loop of the 'z'.
Also, I was having trouble getting the joints of the 'c' and 'e' to look smooth, so I did not include them in this shot. I agree that they cause a disconnect in the flow, so I will definitely work on them and post new shots soon.
Some alternates would be great, flourishes on the other descenders could be really nice as extras. Ah yeah, I can definitely imagine the difficulties with the 'c' and 'e' connectors – all the best with it!
