Details

Description:
That's my handwriting. Scanned a piece of paper with a handwritten alphabet and redraw it as exactly as possible. I know it's sloppy but that's the effect I wanted and my handwriting is in fact very sloppy.

I'm speechless! That's quite an achievement, David.

Hope this isn’t another one wrongly overlooked as a Top Pick by FS Staff, like it as happened to many others. :s

yeah!
that's quite impressive!
I'd do a thousand of this if only i could zooom out a little more!!!
Otherwise it's just a meaning of patience...

Added numerals and punctuation marks.
I will eventually add more glyphs.

@kix: Well even if we could zoom out a little more, it would never be the same like vector drawn fonts, especially when it comes to print. This is just something for web & screen design with limited font sizes. It would take much more time to vectorize anyway, so it's a good compromise.

Very convincing digitization, David. Nicely done.

jmarquez - Please be patient with us. New FontStructions may be public for a few days before they are selected as Top Picks.

thanks for all the compliments... and here's a little something that shows what one can do with this creation beside writing :)

Beautiful work Mr. N. It must be nice to have a font of your very own handwriting. Franz Kafka is smiling.

Yes it's really fun to play with. To avoid pixelation you can use Photoshop or pretty much any image editing program that features selections. Create a selection of the font in any size you need it, smooth the selection and fill it. Depending on the font size you will have to use more or less smoothing. It's not perfect but comes next close to vectorizing.

I love this! I'm trying to do something similar, imitating my own cursive and I'm going through hell. I just don't know how you did it! It's excellent.

Love it! By the way, i don't think that you're handwriting is that bad, i can read it! If i would do this with my handwriting (if i would be able to) you weren't even able to read it so nice!

Mr N's writing is much better than mine!
