I used a tablet to get the basic structure of some of the letters, then worked on the details the old-fashioned way. Still getting the hang of the tablet, but it was definitely handy for laying down the backbone of the font.

wow, a real nice effect. I might have to brush the dust off my A3 Wacom Tablet after seeing this. (I've had it 5 years, never used it once !!)

You need to sort out the advance letter spacing though, and your SPACE character needs widening. It all looks a little claustrophobic.

Beautiful, elegant, delightful 10/10

re: SPACE character that djnippa mentions - It's the space between the words that needs to be adjusted.

Go to 'space' (between lower case and numbers) and then open Advanced/View/Letter width. Set the space, by trial and error, checking it in Preview. Good luck.

Thanks for the comments and the feedback. This was my first spin at font design and had been wondering how to adjust the spacing. I've tweaked the spacing issues that seemed the most glaring and it should hopefully flow better now.

Hi. I think that it is extremely elegant and pretty. Right now I'm still a n00b (:P) and I'm trying to get the sort of look you've given. I've decided that a few hours staring at your font every day should do the trick. :)

10/10

all my fonts were lost long ago and my new ones suck. i love this font and wish i had made it to show off.

also, the lowercase z could use a smoother design.
