Description:
dm 04 This is the 20000th FontStruction! meek, you must be proud. Your website, up to 20000 fonts! I have been working on this for months and I believe it to be my most advanced work yet. Yes, my avatar was made with this a. Also, it's clonable. I originally made this work under adl, but I left the account. So I got to do the very exciting task of having two fontstructor windows open at once and transferring the font from adl to demonics glyph by glyph. Oh, and I forgot to paste djnippa's tool in there first, so now I have hundreds of composites lying around in no order whatsoever. Silly me. Wow, S v y are ugly. I'll need to fix that. Well, that's that. Spacing is also a bit off and the font looks horrible in Word, for some unknown reason. I'll work on that issue. I'm proud of myself because this is my fourth attempt at a large-scale faux bezier font and it might just work. Lastly, the font's name progressed like this over the 6+ months I've been working on New Humanist: New Humanist Rounded New Humanist Bold +new humanist bold dm New Humanist Just a fun fact. Anyway, serif and non-rounded versions coming soon! Cheers! dm

Wow, I'm really excited about this one. I also think A needs revising, and I'd like suggestions on how I can do that. Thanks! What does everyone think? I spent a long time on the a.

I noticed recently that the 20000th number is coming up, but forgot to aim for that. Congrats for getting the landmark! And good job on the font. The A could perhaps be slightly narrower, but otherwise it seems fine.

demonics Tue, 10th April, 2012

@Yautja Thanks, and many letters (X v y S and more) are just unacceptable, so I'll fix that sometime. I've been aiming for 20000 since it was at 16000 months ago.

Good job, Master ;)
The ONLY "bad" thing is: The spacing between R and S seems doesn't right.
10/10 Keep it up!

Actually, when I released this 20 minutes ago, it was number 20002, but then I hid 2 of my fonts and this took the place of 20000. Just shows you that the position can change at any time when fonts are deleted/hidden.

@cablecomputer Thanks! But what are you talking about? I'm no master. I'll see what I can do regarding spacing.

Sorry about the "master". I'm just trying to encourage you :)

demonics Tue, 10th April, 2012

No, it's fine. You can call me that if you want. But I just didn't think I deserved the Master title yet. :)

Why was it so important for you to be at this place ?


demonics
demonics Tue, 10th April, 2012

@1saac Thanks.

@neurone_error It's fun, and I'm proud to have created the 20000th FontStruction. If you have a problem with that or if it affects you in any way, please let me know in a Private Message. Thanks. By the way, what do you think about the font, not the place it's in?


Abneurone Fluid Types
Abneurone Fluid Types Tue, 10th April, 2012

why would it affect me ? That was just curiosity. Once again, i'm sorry if i hurt you in any way. Concerning the font, I've never been a great fan of "faux bezier", with some few exceptions. Here, i think I have difficulties to feel exactly if you want to go clean or to go rough. This in-between feel makes me uneasy, and the basic forms are a bit too "basic" for my taste. Using finally a similar method, even if on a more modest grid, i much more prefered what you had made with your fantastic "+stuck in granite", maybe more "inhuman" than this one, but much more of my taste. But it's only my own opinion, i'm sure you'll touch many people with this more accessible one. Though I must recognize that the K is really beautiful.

@neurone_error Thanks for the kind words about the K and stuckingranite. :)

I actually wanted to make this font both clean and elegant, and it has fallen just a bit short. I'll try to make it seem more smooth, and I planned every one of the characters to look somewhat like what it is now. Thank you for your concern though. :)

Your fonts are getting better each day... Why don't you publish some of your best font to the other site, like free fonts site or commercial fonts site?

Hello! Just going to let you know I downlaoded this font and used it for a school assignment and the teacher noticed and commented on the cool font! Great job demonix! This is definently my fave font by you yet! Keep up the good work.


demonics
demonics Thu, 12th April, 2012

Haha, thanks so much, guys!
@mpdr I'm flattered.
@cablecomputer I've never done that before but I may take that into consideration. Thanks!


demonics

@cablecomputer I've just submitted this on dafont...waiting to hear back from them. Do you think it will get accepted?


cablecomputer
cablecomputer Fri, 13th April, 2012

I've submitted some of my font there. After submitting, you must wait for one day or more. I'm sure it will be submitted. :)

This font does not deserve to be the 12th highest rated font on FS!

AWE some ! 10/10
One suggestion though: Maybe the ink traps in the M and N are too pronounced?

Wow, beautiful! Doesn't look like it was made on FS. I'll clone and make my version :)
