Font Weight

Font Weight

So I’ve been testing out making different weights of the NES-Styled font I’ve been working on. It hasn’t turned out too bad, but was a major pain to accomplish because I was a huge derp and though “yeah just use the stroke tool”.  That DOESN’T work on this font, at all. See? Blech, yech, ew. As I said, that doesn’t work at all!

I’ve been redrawing one of the very first fonts I ever tried to make back in 2000. This was back when Highlander: The Series was still a thing. I didn’t touch this for a VERY long time, to the point I can’t even open the CorelDraw files they’re so old. I took a break from some of the other ones I’ve been re-doing in Illustrator to revisit this one for a while. This go around I actually have been making…

ODN Bacterion Alpha One of the first fonts I started working on. It was inspired by the bitmap font used in Gradius III.   ODN Bacterion Beta Similar to Bacterion Alpha ODN, this is also a Gradius font. This one comes from the PlayStation 2 version Gradius IV, which used a smooth version of the bitmap from Gradius III in the menu screen. Note: The original arcade version used a bitmap similar to the first 2 Gradius games.   ODN…

I will actually finish a freaking font! I have actually 13 that I am actively working on, but none of them are to a point of being “done”. Paisano was previewed a while back, but I haven’t really shown much more than that. So I’m going to be adding pages for the fonts on here soon including the new one, Super Nintendoized ODN, which was recently improved thanks to a kick in the pants by Badger for his new project.
