Cool 3D effect.
Comment by aphoria 30th june 2009
Nice 3D work.
Have you thought of making the K a bit more like the X, also the cross bar on the A looks a little high, same as B, P & R, and also the up tail on the J looks a little long. I've done some examples below.
Also on closer inspection you need to look at the Brick Stacking technique. It will resolve a lot of your problems.
Comment by djnippa 30th june 2009
Thank you both for the positive comments and thank you djnippa for the constructive crit and for pointing me towards Brick Stacking.

I wondered about the 'J', but thought I'd see what came out from having it (and the 'G') at the same height as the cross bars ... I think I might give it a few days then overhaul the font a bit.

I have only been Fontstructing for a few weeks and I'm already hooked.

Right, I'm off to try out stacking a few bricks :)

Oh! Joy of joys!! What a wondrous thing is Brick Stacking :)

I have been using it on a second version of Alphabox and it just makes everything sooo right.

A massive thank you to djnippa for putting me on to it.

Isn't it brilliant. It opens up a whole new world.
I can't remember who told me, but how pleased was I .... very pleased.

As another tip. You can Brick Stack to the left, down & Up, rather than just the right as I've illustrated.

It really does turn Fontstruct into a far more creative tool.

Sorry to see the upset over Neopolicia ... it's a considerably cleaner, more usable font than Grant.
Comment by p2pnut 1st july 2009
Bravo on a nice, clean effect - and doubly so considering you've only been doing this a short while.

I'm fairly new to this myself... many many sleepless nights await us, I'm sure.

Nice 3D technique. I would have to second djnippa's critiques.
Comment by geneus1 2nd july 2009
Thanks for the positive comments folks.

chr.s ... I suspect FS should carry a health warning "Fontstructing can be seriously addictive"

I have created 'Alphabox Basic' which is a cleaner version (thanks to djnippa's advice on brick stacking) and think I will concentrate on variations of that - rather than trying to fix the many problems on this original effort.
