Love the shading - nice work
Comment by p2pnut 8th August 2009
Very nice 3D effect. Yes, it really pops out, thanks to the perfect grey shading. I would increase the space to separate the words. I deserves a full 10.
Comment by Frodo7 8th August 2009
Thanks for the comments. I do have an '!' which I assign to the '/' key. The original '!' key is now for the non-ending '1'.
Comment by lldaddy 9th August 2009
this is excellent. it reminds me of a 70s type font - vintage yet very contemporary. sample?

a must for any comic convention.

In our background, we don't usually put a diagonal line in the 'zero'. But in this font, it's a good cause to break up some black blocks.
So I added in today.

beautiful

Smart solution to overlap the letters & beautiful shading effect.

***

Another approach would be to create two separate fonts: one for the background (current black), another for the foreground color (current white) – and overlap them when composing a document. This is more work (metrics need to be exactly the same in the two fonts), but opens a whole world of possibilities and frees the glyphs from being straight at the left. See a couple of examples of "font stacking" here, here and here.

This approach would also make designs like Hommage a Escher or Bas Relief possible – different shades of grey (color) can be made as solid surfaces in different fonts, instead of halftone patterns in one single font.

Great effect. The style is reminiscent of shasta's Lame Dude.

Thank you very much!

Comment by lldaddy 15th June 2016

there's a problem with letter combos, it doesnt get the full effect like AX or AJ

Comment by brynda1231 7th October 2016

Can you add letter pairs like AJ, AX, AZ, etc. so there are no problems.
