ALIEN WORMHOLE (BOLD) - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
This is a 'Bold' style version to the "ALIEN WORMHOLE" type family.

This version has a ton of extra character compared to the 'Light' version.  
For now only the two 'Basic Latin' sets, some symbols and a small number of puctuation marks match. And it remains to be seen if I can translate back to the Light version all those extra's that were put into this Bold version.
I mentioned 'type family' earlier, but in reality there isn't a whole lot of family just yet. Since the two for now hardly correlate truly.
Here is a link to the 'Light' version

Stay tuned for future updates.

This is more legible than the "light" version and the new K and R works much better, IMHO. I like it!

This is even cooler.

Congrats on the TP, pal!

Argh, here is some maths...

—  '0,?? ???????' × '???? ??????' × '??? ??????' ≈ '?? ???? ?? ????'

Literally every tiny irregularity is visible!

Squiggly! This looks a lot like Pickle Standard. Did you base your designs off from it? Like your alternative ways of executing the glyphs though!

Comment by faux_icing 13th september 2022

@Micheal (faux_icing): Yeah, that is one very similar one indeed, but there were actually several others that influenced this work.  Cool font by the way that 'Pickle'. I couldn't do a full Cyrillic support with that level of complexity like Pickle though.

*Now looking at 'BB Standard' by the same designer*  It seems that we both both have based fonts on the same source material. As 'BB Standard' looks even more alike.

Excellent Cyrillic font. But this raises some questions for me. Why does the Д stick out so much on the lower left side? And why did you make the Д narrower than the Л, but not make the right side of the Ю narrower than the O (only for capital letters)? You made rounded Щ Ш, but a sharp Ц. It seems to me that the hole in the lower part of the letters БЪЬЫ is very large, when Р is small. Also, when reading Я are very strongly knocked out and not very clear, you need to make it wider with two lower legs, you can round its upper right corner. С Э сэз in Cyrillic have too unique form of endings. Ф protrudes upwards in capitals, but ф falls short of the height of lowercases. Hope, you will correct according to my advice and also make a thin version with Cyrillic.. F protrudes upwards in capitals, but falls short of the height of lowercases.

@Dmitriy: Thanks for your constructive critisism my friend.. very very much appreciated. I did update some of the things you pointed out already.

Дд - Adjusted the lower left side, made it slightly wider and narrowed Л to match it.

Ю - I will not touch the width (if that is what you meant... )

Ц - I rounded the bottom left corner to match the rounded Щ Ш, but I have a feeling you wouldve rather seen Щ Ш been made sharp to match Ц.. right?

БЪЬЫ - I simply took the top part from Р to replace all bottom parts for БЪЬЫ with.

Фф - Changed both characters to fit correctly in the verticals.

Hope I did the above right this time!

Яя - I tried some other solutions that I think didn't worked out so I again resort on the innitial design I had untill I found better suitable solution. (But changing this is kind of a painful one, as I really liked these more experimental forms)

СЭсэз - I don't think I fully understood what you tried telling me about these characters, did I do incorrect versions for them as well?

"Hope, you will correct according to my advice and also make a thin version with Cyrillic.."

I was planning on doing this, but as thinking about it right now I realize this might take a while before truly getting realized... Too bad I have already set the tone by doing cyrillic in the bold version, which prevents all means of design freedom for cyrillic in the light weight version, as I want them to be matching, otherwise I would've asked you for Cyrillic. ?

It's much better now, although Cyrillic is still different from Latin, it has wider letters, and in Latin they all have thin inner white (I'd rotate the х 90 degrees to make this effect fo it), so the y in Cyrillic looks to come out from the crowd. Ц now seems too wide to me. The leg of the letter Я can be bent outward, like л. The cyrillic letter p without a descender is hard to read, make it like in the Latin alphabet. I have a similar font, maybe you can look at it and experiment a bit.
