This project was originally started for the Stencil Competition, but I couldn't finish it sooner. I hope you like it.

fugitiveglue Thu, 8th November, 2012

Gorgeous. You never disappoint.

architaraz Thu, 8th November, 2012

Maybe 4, 7 can be tweaked a little more?

laynecom Thu, 8th November, 2012

Looks as if it flows. Very nicely done.

CMunk Thu, 8th November, 2012

Cool font Frodo7. Sad you didn't make it to the competition.

p2pnut Thu, 8th November, 2012

Nice, clean and (as laynecom says) flowing. 10/10

WHAT Thu, 8th November, 2012

really good!

Thank you very much for your comment and ratings. The spam is hidden now, and with a little help from Rob Meek, it is to be expunged.

@architaraz: I really appreciate your critique. I know those numbers are not the best, and in need of refinement. However, without true diagonal strokes, my options are limited.

@CMunk: Thanks for your awareness (of spam). I had to clean up my Emailbox too.
It doesn't really matter now, as my other font has made it to the top three.

Bella font! And as someone said earlier: "You never disappoints us", dear m*st*r!

beate Fri, 9th November, 2012

I am with elmoyenique, p2pnut, and… This is a very nice and attractive stencil.

four Fri, 9th November, 2012

Great stencil. There is a flow to this as mentioned, but it also has an impossible twisted 3D feel, the trademark of so many of your other great works and that literally gives this work an extra dimension. Some non-alphabet glyphs could do with one or two more bridges. 10/10

Yautja Fri, 9th November, 2012

Great work! Reminds me of architaraz. I like the shape of 4, but it's missing those spaces. 7 could have a "bottom right" curve instead.

will.i.ૐ Fri, 9th November, 2012

A future classic, utterly unique yet evocative of another amazing and underrated swirly stencil of yours. Brilliant from start to finish. 10/10

Frodo7 Mon, 12th November, 2012

Wow, more comments.

@elmoyenique, beate, and will.i.ૐ: Thank you for your kind feedback and ratings.

@four: The whole design is based on minimalism. A lot more gaps could have been inserted into the vertical strokes, but I realized they didn't improve the overall look of the font. However, I thought about adding a few gaps to the special characters, and I might do it later.

@Yautja: The 4 and 7 are far from perfect, I know. At present, I can't think of any good solution. They really need diagonal strokes. There are some other minor issues I can't resolve within FS. I think, I'll do it in the "post-production" with a font editor, as djnippa and others did with their works.

winty5 Mon, 12th November, 2012

I like this. Never thought of making stencil cuts that way. Only thing I would change is the K. 10/10++

winty5 Mon, 12th November, 2012

The lowercase k, not the capital one. Sorry.

meek Fri, 16th November, 2012

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Deagol Stencil” is now a Top Pick.

Frodo7 Sat, 17th November, 2012

@meek: Thank you very much for the special mention. Much appreciated.

Frodo7 Sun, 18th November, 2012

@winty5: Thank you for your comment. There isn't much wiggle room for the K if you consider the constrains of modular design. The same goes for the letters x,X,R. I'd love to change them a bit by adding diagonals.

All I can say is "Thank you!" for such a wonderful work of art.
