  • 2017-08-13 – ODN Falchion Beta Progress

    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. 😛

  • Focus Shift Again

    Last night I couldn’t bring myself to work on the NES-like font, doesn’t feel right without a proper name. So instead I spent all night redrawing SoulSword to use my new 2048pt template and almost finished all numerals and uppercase letters in one bash. What’s sad is I started work on this thing back when […]

  • 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. […]

  • ODN Only One Immortal

    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 […]

  • Musings on Font Stuff

    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 […]

  • Update ‘n Stuff

    Oops, I Fonted… So another year has gone by and I still haven’t gotten any of my fonts comfortably done. I though I had messed up and used the wrong size template to make them. So I started to edit them with a “corrected” template. Problem is that was the WRONG thing to do. The […]

  • Fonts I’ve been Working On For WAY Too Long

    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 […]

  • One of These Days…

    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 […]

  • Paisano! ODN Preview Update

    I’ve done a lot more work on Paisano! ODN and the results are quite pleasing. I do admin that the OpenType PS (shown) version is looking a hell of a lot better than the basic TrueType version. It still has a long way to go though, as you can see there are NO numbers yet, […]

  • Back to my old tricks

    So here I am, back to making fonts for some crazy reason.  Yeah it’s kind of a thing that I never actually finish anything but I sure have fun making it. I’m hoping this time with the power of TypeTool & Font-Creator I will actually get a result I feel is ready for primetime. No […]
