Sample with lineare serif roman.

It looks nice, but I think it's too cursive.
Some quick comments:
- s is wide and dark, and needs more slant;
- keep the k's leg aligned to the baseline;
- m is narrow;
- make a double-storey g;
- abdpq are too light comparing to hmn.

Oh, I really like that. It flows quite nicely.

This is marvelous! Roman and italic.

Things to look at in the italic:

- The "s" The pen angle is too flat.
- Look for consistency in your modulation. ie the s, e, c -vs- p, m, n. (I'd say thin down the s, e, c etc)
- You're poothooks/serifs, could use a bit of thinning.

I guess that's the main thing apart from your s. Pick a thin extreme and stick with it! Great stuff.

This is really nice! It dances on the page, but it's a great stylistic match to the roman. The two glyphs that don't seem to work are the "g" and "s".

But there's a problem: in a body of roman it's not standing out enough. You can either increase the slant (although I personally like gentle slants), or make it lighter (slightly), or narrower (first choice), or give it a slightly smaller x-height - or of course a combination of those.

Keep it up!

The "s" is almost there... Maybe put some shears on its terminals?
The spine of the "z" is uncharacteristically stiff.

my wholly unprofessional reaction: ooooo, I like the italic "d." (:

Eduardo.

I still think the stroke contrast is inconsistant. Your serifs (cant remember if that's what they're called in this case) seem thick. compared to where your banches join (n,m etc) also, on the s, looking better, but still make the thins thin! It's making the color spotty. Sparkle yes. Spotty, no.

Good Luck -- Randy

The bowl of the g might look better if it went below the baseline- already evident in the q. In text, next to the r, looks a bit small...

Some changes in lc and first UC.

Thanks for all, Eduardo

I like the new [red] "g".
The "s" needs to become much more... delicate.

Wassup with your ascender height variability?

Hi Eduardo.

Nice improvements! The color looks more even when printed than it does on screen. I have that same problem. Hinting novice.

Hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of doing a quick suggestion for your s in photoshop. In my opinion, you need to take the weight out of the curves and put it into the spine. It matches the other characters in the italic better. In the roman it's ok to have less weight in the spine, more in the curves. Here it looks clunky. Again very quickly done in photoshop.

This looks really nice!
I'd say you are pretty close.

Cheers,
Randy

Nice!!!!! Eduardo. Can you show us a sample of the roman with this? Just for comparison?
