Overall a beautiful design.

My ony (slight) quibble is that some of the connections don't work as well as others. e.g in the Sample Text - the ui of 'quick' or the um of 'jumps' don't work as well as the mp of 'jumps. It seems to be where a right hand tail meets a serif.

I took the liberty of trying a variation (which may or may not be of interest) :)

Seems to be a glitch.

Great usage of curved bricks at such a small grid size. It has a great flow, and ornate feel about it.I really like k,v,w,4. Not keen on the old school number though, but then again I never have liked Old School dropped and stunted numbers on anything.

Sharp 'n' sassy! I am particularly fond of the flourish on the 'v' and 'w'... also on the '4', I see. I almost want to see more of that clever use of negative space!

Very nice design with Cyrillic set. I fully understand the challenge posed by the small grid and limited set of bricks. In light of that it is safe to say you've made very good compromises and created the prettiest letters possible. I'd like to focus my comment on the Russian characters. Some of them are really charming. My favourites are the з,д,г,л,ю,ы.
The ж,к are also very good. I may not use ball terminals for the ц,щ. In text samples most letters work nicely together, but some of them do not connect to neighbours seamlessly (а,у). Apart from the usual issues of spacing and kerning, which are not your fault, but come with FS' limitations at small sizes, I would increase the spacing a bit for the benefit of the Russian as well as the Latin set. 10/10

Very interesting look. Very full font. Your love of different alphabets and languages is easily see.
