@Chris Rumeau (rumeauc1) - Very nice pixel font.  Is there an inspiration for this design?

@Goatmeal Yes! This was actually for a Typography class, the challenge was to just create a font using pixels. I wanted to combine the modular, even contrast of Blackletter calligraphy with the "save-every-pixel" conservative style of old arcade unicode fonts. So I wanted the font to be a mix of the two, reusing stems and loops as much as possible and only making unique shapes when necessary. The process started on gridded paper and ink, and I worked out the kinks until I could comfortably move it to a digital form (and Fontstruct has been a godsend in that regard).

Castlevania was a big source of inspiration too, hence the name Belmont after the main character

Also the sample above is only allowed at a max of 1 megabit. 1mB, not 1MB, so pardon the low quality and poor kerning

i like how it's simple, but it also does a good job at being a blackletter. great work!

The documentation is fantastic. I'd love to see a version with more characters.
