My first fonstruction is based around the theme of malnutrition, but focuses on lesser acknowledged end of the spectrum, over-nutrition. I took inspiration from nature of skin and fat on overweight or obese bodies, putting emphasis on the folds and bulges you might typically see on the skin of a larger frame.

Great observation and wonderful adaptation! Those chubby glyphs have more unruly proportions than Beryl Cook's or Fernando Botero's people; they remind me a little of muscle areas in 'Tantalus' by Hendrik Goltzius. Well  deserved 10/10

what amazes me the most is the great eye for detail that was put into creating depth perception with the shading effect.

Brilliant. The kerning is a big issue in the sample.

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Big Boned” is now a Top Pick.

@Rob: Yea but the kerning feature in the FS editor becomes pretty much useless at this grid dimensions

And making use of negative side bearing is only fixing this to a certain amount.

The detail in this is absolute wonderful - those are some thiccc letters (and that’s with 3 cs intentionally). Amazing idea, brilliantly executed.

Checking for stray bricks (but none seen) in largest font preview window I think the "I" might benefit from moving towards the blue vertical line ("J" might also move just a tad?). Congratulations on the TP !

WOW! This took a lot of time and effort to create... Nice one!

Kind of disgusting

Comment by Joseph McKay (CaillouFanJoseph) Sat, 17th November

Good Font, But I Think It Should Support Lowercase Characters And Punctuation.

Y'all wanna call this font "Lancer" and call it day?

Comment by Dumb Purple Ghost Fri, 23rd November

Phat! The C and G look really similar to the O and thus affect readability, but great shading work on your letterforms and an awesome debut of your first fontstruction!
