I really haven’t had much to show lately. So here are the highlights. XP
– I’ve taken on redoing the fonts I’ve been working on…AGAIN!
Yes again! I got the uber expensive FontLab Studio since my last post. It’s kind of prone to crashing on Windows and has a learning curve to it. They’re currently working on a new which is more streamlines and had more kickass features. Sadly for me they’re doing a Mac-first development and haven’t released a Windows build.
In the meantime I’ve been sticking to High-Logic’s FontCreator and it’s direct drag-n-drop Illustrator conversion. I’ve also been redoing the fonts in a higher definition. Previously I was using 720pt as a base, now I’m starting with a 2048pt document. I’ve gotten some really good results and better quality glyphs as a result. I also still have old CorelDraw files to redo in AI as well, but when I get a spurt of creativity going I knock out a big pile of glyphs in one go.
Also regarding fonts I unearthed my old Intuos3 tablet, calibrated it, and have been messing around in PaintTool SAI with it. Natch the first thing I do is start doodling letters. This opened up a whole slew of ideas for fonts. I know, I know!
– I’ve been kind of bankrupt for ideas.
Nothing unusual there considering, though it seems my bad days outnumber my good days.
Recently I’ve been trying to get more back into the things I used to enjoy. I’ve been watching Picarto streams a lot and have been getting some ideas brewing. That’s mostly what got me to unearth my tablet in the first place. I’ve also had some ideas for Infinite Unreality, my dead community site, recently as well. I was going to do something similar in theme to what I did for my personal logo (below) but now I’m considering something RADICALLY different. :3
