    I had over half of the uppercase finished before I decided they totally sucked, so I deleted them all. The lowercase isn't totally worthless, so I'm releasing it to the wild.

    And worthy it is indeed. I hope you can sustain the energy to fix the upper case. Caps can be discouraging, can't they.
    Comment by intaglio 1st January 2009
    Really excellent stuff. 9/10
    Not keen on the lower case y though.
    Comment by djnippa 1st January 2009
    I'm not happy with the y or the z either. I need more angles!

    I need a break before I revisit the caps. It sounds ridiculous, but this font drained me.

    I've never seen that one before

    Instead of making caps you could just copy paste all the lowercase letters into where the caps go, making it a fully functional all lower case font.

    Beautiful work... I still haven't dared tackling anything blackletterish. If I had I sure would have hoped it to end looking somehow like this. :)

    c f g m n look awfully Fakir-ish!
    Comment by demonics 9th May 2012
    @demonics Nope, I've never seen Fakir. At least, I hadn't seen it before graves09 asked in May, 2009.

    Being a blackletter, there are bound to be many fonts with similar characteristics. I did Futility pretty early in my FontStruct career, so the details are hazy, but I was trying to emulate one or more blackletter fonts that I had seen.
    Comment by aphoria 9th May 2012
    Ah. I see. Actually, I was planning on making some variation of fakir or somewhat like it, but you beat me to it! Very nice font.
