I doodled this intending to make a high-res pixel design that scaled down nicely. Unfortunately this does not work out. Designs such as these only look good at their original size (or multiples thereof) and they do not play well with antialiasing algorithms, nor can they be fixed by most vectorization methods. So, at most sizes the font becomes quite unattractive. Still, it was fun to draw.

Yeah, I like what it does. Maybe I'll continue it just for fun but I still think it only works at one size...

I've been experimenting with antialiasing methods for this design. See image; the two left side pairs have software antialiasing turned off and the right side ones have it turned on. The left o in each pair is the original and the right o is antialiased with FS bricks - the 2nd square halftone brick.

Lots of people have made halftone gradients and antialiased forms before, but I have yet to see those techniques applied on this scale. Expect a tutorial if I'm able to work out a substantially better way to do this... as it is now, it's interesting but I'm not sure if it's an improvement.
