Personally, when I decided to create a western style font so it seemed to me something a bit crazy, this is not a kind of font that is often used much in today's pictures and other graphic proposals. But to work, it was a good task to study, manage and try to solve the most important visual aspects of style and use of other fonts that are not so common. I think the result is very nice, but there are still some problems in some glyphs, such as A,!, Ñ and others that I am sure you will discover. Anyway, I think this effort has produced a fairly good result. What do you think about this? You know about this more than me ...

I see your problem with the Ñ and other glyphs. You can solve it easily by using the 2:2 filter setting (Advanced>View>Filters, set both horizontal and vertical brick size to 2.00). This magnifies the bricks, but the grid remains the same size. You can position bricks in between. It won't take too long to upscale this small grid font.

Have you considered the use of half slabs to preserve the gap all the way up or down. You already have it in the N,n. It's not a question of good or bad design, but rather what do you prefer.

The vertical part of the ¶ (pilcrow, paragraph) should go down to the descender. It's not necessarily serifed at the bottom in a serif font.
