Preview at a size slightly higher than the pixel size. Adjust the size to get a pencil shading effect. ----------------------------------- This is cloned from en origami v2. I've added the shading effect to each glyph.suggestions/comments are welcome:)

I tried to produce a pencil-drawn effect for this font.
Comment by naveenchandru 29th august 2010
Well done! Really cool effect!

Probably a lot of work... but the result is great

Why wasn't this a Top Pick?
Comment by djnippa 11th september 2010
@DJ Nippa : I could say this of hundreds of fonts here ! Afrojet and Meek are not GOD !
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 11th september 2010
Err, when i say hundreds, i exaggerate a little, but still, many !
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 11th september 2010
Let's not overlook the obvious: Rob Meek and afrojet are humans. Keeping track of every shared font is not an easy task. Couple that with their other (main) duties, it is almost amazing that so many shared fontstructions do get top picked. It might also help to keep in mind that Top Picks are a bonus, not default. I, too, agree that this should probably be Top Picked, and maybe it will be, but let's not get upset if it isn't. The fun should be in the creation not what accolades it receives. If you are not enjoying the creation process, there are other, more popular, outlets (dafont.com, for instance) that have the potential for a far greater (albeit, quiet mum) audience.

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “en origami - pencil shaded” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 11th september 2010
I echo Thalamic. Sometimes high quality fonts do get over looked. It's not the end of the world! Meek & Afrojet are busy guys and probably have more to do than keep an eye on what everyone else is doing. I think it's nice of them to offer their time to keep check on the whole site.
If however you feel a font deserves some extra credit, then make a shout about it.
Comment by djnippa 11th september 2010
@djnippa, neurone error, thalamic
I thank you for your support and 'shout' in making it a top pick. Support from you people makes me more happy than a Top Pick.
Comment by naveenchandru 12th september 2010
HUGE THANKS for choosing it as a Top Pick
Comment by naveenchandru 12th september 2010
Also I should thank Upixel, Afrojet for the comments on the original version - 'en origami'. Those have been influential in making this one.
Comment by naveenchandru 12th september 2010
@naveenchandru well deserved. sometimes shouting is necessary to get us to notice great work like this.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 12th september 2010

Comment by BRadster font 31st october 2010
this is so awesome!! I've actually always wondered (and since you're really good at this and I'm new, maybe you'd like to answer?), what makes you want to make fonts for free?
Comment by carolineelizabeth 14th november 2010
Thank you everyone for your comments.
@carolineelizabeth:I create fonts because I love it. I am doing it for fun. Also it is a great feeling to hear comments from people from different parts of the world.
Comment by naveenchandru 14th november 2010
@carolineélizabeth Salut :)
Create font for free: that's a good question... in fact in FS it's different than doing it in fontlab or font forge alone in your room, it's a community. Also most of fonts have no pretention on going commercial... so you can publish uncomplete set, bad kerning, weaker glyph in set, etc. By removing the rigid fraqme of commercial font, here you're free to explore crazy ideas, strange concepts and uncommercial font desing. Also, using the brick it's a challenge to replicate a vector font. Probably the greatest thing is receiving comments and suggestions on your work from other users which is very inspiring... well for all these reasons, FS is great :)

Sick! the amount of work alone, i take of my head, cool effect
Comment by Joostmarcellis 7th january 2011
Man. Unique work.
Comment by adamlutek 3rd february 2011
I really like it, I only wished it worked better at smaller sizes. Thanks for sharing!
Comment by Sorceress 4th february 2011
I absolutly adore this font !
Comment by PLUmaRth 8th february 2011

When I started this one, I never really thought it would be successful. I directly started working in fs without any sketching. Its really amazing that many liked this one. Sometimes I thought of extending the characters but I am too lazy to do that. My mind always goes to create something new.

Uh..... yeah.

Comment by Wonson (owowow) 3rd january 2013
great idea.
Comment by diogog 15th january 2013
I would give you I 10/10 but the lowercase doesn't seem to work. Copy all the uppercase and paste them in the lowercase slots and I will give you a 10/10.
Comment by Kradrling 10th february 2013
@Kradrling: I have copied the uppercase letters to lower case letters. Thanks! :)
Comment by naveenchandru 10th february 2013
Amazing work
Keep it up...
