    Those PNDO sketches have grown a bunch in a short time. That top one, I'd separate the tops of the N/D more so your D can shine a little more, not get covered by the N. Like the sketch where the N/P are separated a bit more too. Could still do it the other way like the 3rd sketch with the N coming behind the P but would stop short of connecting it the whole way to let the shape of the P show more.

    I like how you were thinking and where you were going w/ the train outline.

    I feel like the first sketches you posted are somewhat better than the second set. Not sure what to tell you overall. Work on separating the letters slightly perhaps, or maybe try adding a shadow where they overlap.
    Of what you last posted, I see what you're going for with the dark orange but it kind of doesn't work on that outline and I'm not sure a darker color was a better look in the overlap. That N has fish hooked its way into the K in an unflattering way. Need to work on your bars a little too, look at the right side of that K, it needed to swing down and in just a little more and then follow the line of the right leg out.

    The bottom outline is scrunched. If you were going to go that way I might have made the N be the middle and also lowest layer, with the I/K overlapping it on wither side, and the D/I overlapping the I/K to be the top layer. Another way to do that outline would be to make it more 3d, more dimensional. So for example, where the N comes through the K the 3d of the N should come behind and over the K with the N instead of being added in the way you did after. That might be a little complicated for now but you can look at people like Erni Vales or old Emit pieces for some ideas on that.

    Much improved, you've even managed to lose some of the weird imbalance you like to put in the left side of your sketches. The R/I connection is pretty pleasing to the eye, might want to make the legs of the R touch but not overlap to show off that curve more. Might align the right end of the T better to help it continue the flow of the E and might adjust the left side of that T to fit it in better between the top of the R/I. Adjust the top left bar of the W, maybe square it off and don't overlap? Might have separated the W/R up top a little. Like that chip in the R/I and you have another chip or two on the bottom so thinking a chip or two somewhere up top for balance, but not necessary. Think you did an E before where the top left curve of the E was kind of sliced off and slightly separated, might look good here too but not 100 on that. That B.S. appears out of place, obvious filler and doesn't really lend itself to the overall flow you have going on there. Not sure what to do there. If I were painting that and didn't have another solution I'd likely leave the negative space there and do something like have 2 small hearts floating out of the heart on the T to fill some of that in. Kind of like a cartoony in love heart on some old Tex Avery shit. That one little chip between the T/E might look better and fit the 3d better if it were angled to the left, or maybe that chip could be just a bit more to the right with another chip on the left of it angled left to give it some motion coming off the bar. Overall a pretty solid outline.

    Ha, you posted while I was writing. Like the star addition. Suppose you could have gone w/ a heart too to match the T.

    That 2nd sketch has a lot of potential as well, I'd mess w/ that. I can almost see that as 1 long connected bar. Connect the W/R at the top. Have the right side of the T come down left to form the top bar of the E, kind of work it behind the middle bar of the E to connect to the bottom bar of the E, let the rest of the E flow as you have it and where your top left bar of the E comes up, square that off so that piece of vertical bar rests over the T. The I/T connection make one long diagonal bar so it flows, but drop your dot on the I over it right where you did so it creates the effect that it's not one long bar. Eh?

    I appreciate that but it kinda sort of doesn't matter. The whole landscape of things online has changed. I have mellowed a lot. I am just happy doing my thing. I feel good sharing. If people are inspired or like it, that is great. I deeply appreciate it.

    If nobody appreciates it, I will just roll on.
