First off; I can't download my typeface. I have emailed fontstruct, and in the meantime I live traced the preview and am using those pieces in my composition. And yes I know I'm missing punctuation currently.
I started with the one on the top, and decided it wasn't really working for me (it just needs more attention to composition but I wanted to try something else while I still had the time).
With the second one I decided to go more towards a free spirited feeling rather than the strong and independent.
Still needs some work, but I think getting feedback in class to what direction I should pursue would be very helpful. I feel sort-of lost at the moment.
