Congratulations to your first font on FS. This Matoran alphabet looks good, certainly legible enough for the Mata Nui folks. But for us, humans the circles are a bit rugged. Fontstruct is capable to yield better curves, should you try a bit harder.
@FRODO 7 and Kirby3 :I did not know this amazing alphabet. I found a non fontstruct font named "Matoran" with real circles, so we already have it elsewhere, and better "circled" than could any fontstruction, just to say i think your rough version of it gives it a charm you could loose, trying to refine it.
Just give the html page where I found the non fontstruct matoran font :
Yeah, you guys are right. I do think I could have done better with circles, but I'm not quite sure how to do that. I guess I'll just practice. Thank you!
Ah ... those difficult FS circles and curves. Don't give up; especially now that FS 2.0 gives us the ability to create intermediate angles. I am still in the process of experimenting to get a better circle myself :)
I also did a little experiment on how FS 2.0 can improve bezier fakes. Here's the best circle I ended up with. Obviously not perfect, but easy to do, and no 1/3 stacks that would force you to to 3 successive bricks with the same angle.
By the way: How about a little challenge about who gets the most accurate circle/curve? Fontstructing is one of the few areas where I 100% believe that competition brings out the best in everyone... ;)
@shasta: Do we win anything? ;-) I'm working on it. Maybe after your finals.
@Kirby3: The way you've built this with rugged curves can easily befit a grunge version. Practice using the new composite bricks function to get the smoothest curves. I'll be releasing a basic tutorial soon.
I am glad I already downloaded your charming rough circles versiong (frankly, there's the same with real cicles elsewhere), cause i can smell its disappearing perfume
I don't care what others say, this font adds that hand drawn Matoran writing I was looking for. Thanks Man!
