A pretty voxel font with shades of grey accompanied by an elegant demo pic, as usual. 10/10

Nice work and a cubilicious sample :)

for kicks?
kicks must be a very meticulous fellow.
Patience is indeed one of your virtues.
Nice "shading".

Wicked. 10.
Any plans on doing a totally solid version so we can add our own colours, more easily.

Comment by djnippa 17th january 2010
Cheers, mates. :-)

@cayo: It wasn't as difficult as it looks. I just made one cube, then copied it twice and changed the bricks on the copies. The rest was a simple matter of copy-paste-erase. It is a essentially just a 5×3 dot-matrix font, hence it came together quickly.

@djnippa: Recoloring it is not that difficult in Photoshop (sample below). Therefore, no additional versions planned so far.

Man, that doesn't even look possible. Great effects on the samples. Very complex output for a "simple" technique.
Comment by geneus1 22nd january 2010
very engaging work. simple, yet complex. kind of reminds me of a toy i had as a kid - stacked cubes that had holes in the center of each and contained marbles that you had to try to get from one end to the other as quick as possible. don't remember the name and tried to google it, but still the same you work is just as much fun, if not more so.

It doesn't have lower case letters!

@funk_king: Tower of Hanoi… (or a variant perhaps.)

@FFDD: I second this suggestion, though one can grab a complete/better 3x5 dot-matrix font elsewhere. (There are dozens of such fonts…)

@minimum: interesting gradient at that time. Can you add cast shadows now?
