You've done a great job! The sample says "Бетон", it means concrete from russian, you might wanna add it to your tags.
@architaraz: Thanks, for the comments!
Btw, is that word "Бетон" spells "Beton"? That word is in my language, that means "concrete" too! (Check it on Google Translate)
Very interesting if Indonesian, Kazakh, and Russian have many same words (& meanings)... Nice to know your languages :)
Yeap, that's the spelling. Yet again we have similarities ;)
Nice for me!
What program are you using to make sample images?
Awesome font, 9/10.
@elmoyenique: Thanks for your support :)
@Rahi-Tak: Thanks for the comment! Actually I don't have any designing programs like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, or anything else except the default one --> MS Paint :P
But I get an idea to design using MS PowerPoint! You know, for making presentations... I set the paper to portrait than I print-screen it and move it to MS Paint. Voila!
Aha. When you save the picture from ms paint, you should change the file type from .jpeg to .png. Then it wouldn't have that graininess. :)
@Rahi-Tak: Wow, thanks for the advice! :)
You were right to keep going in that direction, you're really mastering now these kinds of esthetic. What makes your approach special is your reappriation of techno very "occidental" styles but as if they were from countries not from the latin alphabet area (here i can't help thinking to Indonesia and such) but actually BEING latin and amazingly legible!
Help, I'm lost ;-)
Great work; 10/10.
@U126 // Wait — .png is the best format? And to think, all this time I was using .gif! Thanks for that info!
@cablecomputer // Wow, you make the amazing samples with just Paint and PowerPoint? Incredible.
.gif is probably the second best, but .bmp comes in a close third. Reasons:
1. Always do a perfect, ungrainy image (I believe it's because it saves the data of each pixel?)
2. Can have alpha values (transparency)
1. Only .gif images can be animated
1. Be used to make animations
2. Can have alpha values
However, .gifs also have an odd way of saving colors (you can see this when changing the file-type in MS Paint.)
1. Also saves perfect, individual pixels, akin to the .png
1. Has a HUGE file size (Almost double .png!)
2. Can't save alpha values.
You really want to use different file types depending on the occasion.
.gif is usually only for animations
.png is usually for everything except animations
.bmp is for anything that can't handle .png images (like desktop backgrounds in vista)
You have phenomenal samples, cablecomputer! Whether or not the finished result is grainy. :O
Random fact: The print screen key takes a .png screenshot.
Also, a .tif or .tiff is good for text, and black and white images. Not good with anything else.
Many thanks for your continuous supports!
And thanks for the information about images!
There are lots of free graphics programs available - here is a link to some:
Hope this helps.
Beautiful exercise on the square centimeter and excellent samples. My only suggestion would be to add some small indents to the sides of X, to make it more distinct from H. Love the font, 10/10+ fav!
Motakku really pops at pxl size. Awesome work!
I was so busy looking up the link (above) that I forgot to say - really good work. 10/10
@p2pnut: Thanks for finding me link for free graphics programs! Actually you do not need to do anything like this to me. But, thanks very much, this helps :)
@four: Thanks for the suggestion! I'll try.
@will.i.aum: Thanks for the comment!
