This technique certainly has the potential for more than this, but right now I don't have the time for experimenting a lot. But how about using it for a handwriting-on-rough-paper font?

And yep, I'll do a more complete character set soon...


It's downloading now but the 2x scaling you're using isn't showing up in the download. I'll check that out.

Getting there. Some weird stars emerging from some letters (A,N,O,P,R ...)
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 29th april 2010
Hehe, the stars are a nice touch... Maybe a bit kitschy.:P

Thanks for the professional care! Have you noticed the pentagrams only come out of pentagon stacked bricks? Could it be that maybe there's an issue with me stupidly stacking a pentagon with a pentagram? (Which obviously turns out as a pentagon, but all these overlaying vector knots could be confusing the fontstructor.)

Spooky, possum. The devil made you do it, obviously.

Yeah, thought so too. That's like reversed lyrics in 80ies metal songs: You don't know the evil is there, but you still feel it.
But then that's only adequate in a font called Pandemonium...

(Incredible how it all comes together, isn't it? Even without me intending it at all. Might have to drink a cup of holy water for breakfast to gain control over myself again.)

I've exorcised this one. Downloads as seen now (AFAICS). The only remaining question is - how did those two empty palette slots come about?

The first design I've seen using the plethora of new goodies - great effect. Just think what this would have taken back in the 'good ol' days' (last week) :)
