I just hate how many people won't actually appreciate this. Nice, man.
@Ryan Hamrick Totally agree. This is evidence of a high attention to detail and excellence in typography.
@Ryan Hamrick Agree.
It looks like the connections to the spine are "kinky" and not very smooth. It's hard to critique this by itself though because maybe that quirkiness is the tone you're going for with the rest of the letters. And the top and bottom feel just a little dark - maybe pull the inner node on each part in a few points.
Maybe it's just me, but it seems that the 'S' is leaning to the left a little as well. I've found that when I encounter this problem extending the overshoot to the left a little on the bottom curve balances out the character (if you follow what I mean). Just my two cents. Cool stuff brother.
Is this part of a font Tony?
Thanks for the response guys. Typography is hard, S's are even harder. Hope you like.
S is a pain in the arSe. Pardon my bad language.
@Joe is onto something. I'd pull the outer nodes a few points in both ends. This will give the spine a more natural flow.
I have a love/hate relationship with this letter. It can look beautiful and well made or the exact opposite. This is beautiful and well made.

Yeah, Joe knows. I've refined the hell out of this since posting, I'll update with the full mark once it's complete.
I'm with you Mads, it's such a tough character to design. Mine always look really awkward and unbalanced.
It's all about the optical adjustments not so much the points location, that's why has been often said that letters have "personality", you can't just draw a beautiful typeface from nothing. Cheers! ;)
