Been out of the mood to work on fonts for a while but recently I got the hankerin to work on them again. I’ve completed the revamp of the alphanumerics but have been bouncing around different projects as to keep from getting burned out yet again. 😛
Ignore this. Just faffing about.
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…
Rotate or Skew? Skew or Rotate? I found myself pondering this when redrawing characters using Illustrator. I started all this back around 2000 using CorelDraw 5, some characters with angles just never looked right. They were always too thick with rotation or too thin with skewing. Well I finally hit upon the solution, split the difference between rotated and skewed versions. Doing that made them look spot on! Great…I have just doubled the work on a lot of characters.
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.
