Oh, what a relief it is! Brill, minimum! Nice touch on the sparkly N.

A mastery of bevel. And a nice glint. 10/10

Ouch! Solid Chrome, with glints already attached. 10/10.

I'd maybe increase the 'SPACE' a little more, it looks a little tight between words.

Could you have squeezed a lower case out of this layout?

stunning and smooth. lc would be interesting or perhaps have alternate version with more of them fantastic glints on the glyphs - it would be nice to randomly place them in text :) stiller killer work dude.

Thanks, all.

This one was a fluke. I was playing around on a completely different font and one of the experimental letters turned into the first of this. Had to abandon that font to complete this one. The sparkle was a spur of the moment experimental addition.

@dj: I started the lowercase at your suggestion, then I remembered why I didn't do it in the beginning: too many bricks.

Then again, the font doesn't download anyway. I might just finish the lowercase. The s and z will be tricky though. Lets see...

The sample is a screen grab manipulation in Photoshop.

They really need to increase the storage buffer for blocks. Everyone at the moment seems to pushing thing to them max. It's like we've hit a 'brick' wall!

If you do the lower case, I also see 's' & 'e' being a little squeezed in - but I'm sure you'll have a killer solution..... no pressure there then!

funk_king Fri, 7th August, 2009

well i think you should apply the genenus1 (i think) rule here of starting with the s or x. as it is now i think you could squeeze the s, x, and z in, but i think if you raise the basic height of the lc you should be ok :)

Lowercase.

Superb job on the lower case.
Increase the "SPACE" between words to half the letter width.
The new 's' is much better, but it's a shame you can't get a tighter corner on it. I'm sure you've tried.

Any news as to why this can't be downloaded?

The 3-D is perfect. The N glint is also a very nice touch.

so i have to ask - have you tried splitting the file into separate uc and lc to see if it would dl? just a pity no one can download such a beauty :(


minimum
minimum Sun, 9th August, 2009

Thanks again, everyone. Nice of everyone to appreciate this font purely on design alone.

@dj: Space fixed.

@funk_king: This font didn't even download when during development it was just A-Z. To make it downloadable, it will probably need to be split in four. It would be silly to type one word using four fonts. If anyone wants to use it, it will just have to be UserInput into the previewer and PrintScreen/Grab/Snip over to Photoshop.

Come to think of it, all my fonts are pretty useless. I have no idea what purpose they serve. Just call me futility_king. ;)

ok mr. futility_king, i guess something is better than nothing. but it's like being tantalus to the water of this great work. but i guess really no better for you :( so that's a pretty cool name - pretty useless fonts and could provide just the right amount of irony for what we do - for isn't the idea of a font itself pretty useless? and it could be argued all the great fonts have already been created. and not even using a real font editor? pashaw. so what any of us does is pretty useless my friend. but oh the joy derived from such a pointless diversion :)

re downloadability.
I can say a little bit about why it can't be downloaded. It's not just the many bricks. It's the fact that they don't touch. This means the final font contains thousands of separate outlines and is therefore very big. Assembling these is too much for the font generator at the moment. It runs out of resources. I think there is a solution, but it's not a quick fix (no dial to turn) so I'm afraid people will have to be patient on this.

Have tried several times to download this gorgeous file, only to have it consistently show as being "not a valid font file" after uncompressing. Anyone having this same issue currently? Also, is there another location where the file can be downloaded? Thank you for sharing your creation[s] with us and for (I hope) assisting!

Thanks for liking the fontstruction, SuzyWoo.

As for downloading, the only advice is to not download it. The reason is, the gray is achieved by using smaller than the full block square. That results in each letter being made up of a lot (a LOT) of individual squares. If you install it, it will eat all your system processor time just to render it and your system will hang.

The way to get around it to do what I did to create the samples. Click 'View' in the preview window above and type what you need. Then use PrintScreen to create an image copy of this page in the clipboard. You can then use Photoshop (or some other image editing software) to isolate the letters as you want. Crop the image to just slightly larger than the letters, then I used the MagicWand to select the background white with 'Contiguous' on, 'Anti-alias' off and 'Tolerance' set to zero and Shift+Click the insides of A D and B, then Ctrl+Shift+I to select the inverse which should result selecting only the letters. Use Ctrl+U to colorize the text. Then you can save the file as PNG to preserve transparency of the background. Insert wherever you need it.

How did I miss this masterpiece? Even if it can't be downloaded, it should have received nothing but 10s! (Obviously, it puts my own faux-beveled font to shame.)

Guys, the file can be downloaded. At first, I was thinking the same thing. But I waited on the page for over 5 minutes, and eventually it came up. Hope this helps, thanks.

I like your fs Bas Relief font and want to adapt it to a .eot font, so I can embed it into a personal web page and into email messages, but the Microsoft WEFT tool won't process it for some reason. Is there something in the font code that will accomodate its use as an eot font?

Your font can no longer be used in the game Grand Theft Urban for lack of lyrics: ° ª ¹ ² ³ § 0 ã á à â é è ê í ì î ç ó ò ô õ ú ù û $. If you complete the font, let the e-mail from João Paulo Games: joaopaulogames@hotmail.com.br

This font slow down my computer programs like GIMP or Inkscape because of its lots of details.
But it works fine in Paint :)
