Please see the sample in the comments.
I haven't released any fontstructions in months, but I've constantly been trying to find new methods of fontstructing more sophisticated shapes. This is the result. Not yet finished though. Feedback welcome.
The subtle roundings give it a somewhat handpainted look which i quite like.

trying to break the grid once more... composite is a great feature... still running into a lot of problems though. in had a great start with this one. i think the squeezed curves create great shapes but i don't know if it's worth creating upper case letters for. this is more like an extended experiment.
unfortunately spacing is aweful once again...

This has been in the making for quite some time and I was only able to work on it because of the new fontstruct features. all bricks i used for this fontstructions were half-sized bricks. i mean half-circles, half-sized blocks and so on. also i worked with 1.75 scaling. thanks to this kind of setup i was able to create roundings, that go a little over or below flat-shaped letters. see the sample. also lower case letter like l, k, h and so on are a little taller than upper case letters, like in "real" fonts.
the disadvantage is seen on M,W,m,w where the stem in the middle is a little too short... i had to use a very weird workaround for these 3-stem letters, so this is as good as it gets, unless fontstruct is going to have an empty space brick, that would allow me to create a fitting composite. i used lots of composites and lots of stacking. also the spacing isn't very nice, i'll see if i can do anything about that.

something i've been working on recently. i'm still looking for a solution to virtually increase my screen resolution, so i would have more grid space. i don't know if the line strength is consistent and i propably won't start with the capital letters until then. anyway i thought i might as well throw this in to see what you guys think about it so far.

using a hexagon with rounded edges as the base of every glyph. i try to break the grid and achive new forms by using odd filter settings.

it's been a long time since i released a fontstruction. today i felt like doing one again. it features smooth transitions from diagonals to roundings, notable on the S and Z.

my first try on blackletters. used my 2.0-1.11 scaling again. this is still work in progress but i thought i should get some feedback meanwhile. i don't have a clue where to start with the capitals.This is a clone of sloped

imitating lead lettering
this took an awful lot of time again :/ i know the letters should actually be mirrored like on real lead letters but i prefered readability. i'm not that happy with the result. but i guess it's as good as it gets.
use "_" for a filling glyph. may take some time till the download starts, i used a LOT of bricks. :o

it looks so simple but this one was so hard to do. because of the high resolution i was working on my browser used to freeze several times during process.

That's my handwriting. Scanned a piece of paper with a handwritten alphabet and redraw it as exactly as possible. I know it's sloppy but that's the effect I wanted and my handwriting is in fact very sloppy.

With this one I tried to get as close as possible to the fantastic "Manicotti" by David Jonathan Ross.
See http://www.djrtype.com/manicotti.php for more information.

very much inspired by the screen design of a fictional television show hosted by Bruno, a charakter created by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Hence the name.
If someone knows if there exists a typeface used for the original please let me know.

this is a recreation of a font that is used on the book cover of "masters of doom" (see comments) which tells the story of video game producers id software and their head john carmack. hence the name.
I also want to thank all of those who supported me lately while I had some problems with my motivation. Your words helped me a lot.
