Great! I know it's not meant to be that legible, but maybe you could reconsider D/L/Q? They could still be improved I think.

@regular_one: Thanks!

@Yautja: D,L,Q definately need work, but alas I have no ideas for them...

One of your very best, partner! L is more a G for me, Let it rest a bit and come back to it later, maybe some more effective solutions will come to you then regarding the few chars still too much ambiguous! This font made me think to Quimplef beautiful Drysfa gwallgof
even if your grid and approach are personal and different

Good new "D", i think the old one could have been a good alternate "P".
For me, the "O" could be a very cool alternate for "H" but is definitely not a "O". Have you tried to center or even pull off the vertical bar of "I" ?

This font was a little present for you… ;)

I and L are pretty hard, I'll change O. I keep the old versions in lowercase.

This font works well with Distortopixel.

Update: Fixed O, I, L (hey, that spells oil!) and added more alternates on the LC.

Very smart and effective new "O" and "L" ! "I" still doesn't work. I think you could use the new "i" you put on LC for UC too because it works also very well with the rest of UC set.

In the new "LC" set, "b" doesn't work, the rest are awsome so far. You have impressive intuitive skills at the border of legibility.
Another thing : As the "Lc" set are not real "Lc", i would personally develelop it as a separate font, UC being rich enough to work alone, to not bring too much complexity and confusion to a font which already needs efforts to grasp. I've been there. The more you distort usual habits the more the distorsion must be clearly defined and reducing the sets to the very essential is one effective method.

@AFT: I'll keep the LC as a set of alternates. and yes, b needs work. Thanks for the help :)

Really impressive "Lc" and "UC" sets, you were right to persevere. But the UC "I" is the last one which fails, in my opinion, too much wide feeling. Your sample shows that the preceeding one worked better. Maybe you should keep it, finally, and sorry for the confusion. This font has really become a precious little gem now, exactly the kind of sensations i'm searching for my own typographic collection which i will review and update after i put all my fonts in the TESTAMENT BOOK. 5Psycho will surely be added.

winty5 Fri, 8th February, 2013

Yah your right… i'm gonna change it back.

Update: Changed I, added numbers and punctuation.

You got your MASTERPIECE here.
Incredible work of art with a mastery just far beyond what anyone of your age could even hope. Hat's off, little monster !

@AFT: Out of the 100 or so fonts i've made, this is my very favorite. And really, i'm not that skilled. I've just been doodling different letterforms since age 6. Haha, little monster :D

@elmo: Thanks!

Still my absolute facorite of yours. I can just stay in awe in front of it and wonder how a kid could achieve this, even with a bit of my help. Cheers!

Thanks again! I really like this one as well, it was one of my hardest to achieve perfection with. Now I must finish Extended Latin A.
