Nice I like it! I do not understand why it is called DEAD OR ALIVE though.
Comment by Solduke 28th December 2009
Very nice wood type font. The name probably refers to Wanted posters for head hunters from the Wild West. Or perhaps, to western TV series: Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958) starring Steve McQueen.
Beautiful. 10/10
Comment by Frodo7 28th December 2009
exactly @Frodo7, the name refers to Wanted Posters, typical of the Wild West culture. Thanks for the compliments guys!

Good one! :-)
What about some alternates in the lower case?
Comment by riccard0 29th December 2009
Great execution (pun intended) gray.scale.
Comment by aphoria 29th December 2009
thanks @ ricard0, I'd like to create lower cases, but the proportions of the characters prevents the creation of small letters with the proper consistency

@aphoria, tutá-tzzzz!!! =] thanks!

Wow. This is superb.
Comment by LexKominek 29th December 2009
@gray.scale: I wasn't suggesting a lower case (I'm aware of the near impossibility of it). I meant that, intead of repeating the uppercase, would be a nice addition to have a second set of alternate uppercases (maibe with some sort of decoration or carving).

Yes, it's nice ! Contragulation ! I have a question : how much tme do you spend on it ?
Comment by Alionne 23rd January 2010

Nice one, I hadn't seen this before. It looks like a Wild West design but seems to have a touch of Art Nouveau in it, too, as it looks more organic than the usual architecturally constructed Western fonts.
