Clone of Italic Dotts. Italic Dotts is now shiny. Any questions? Credits to whoever came up with the shiny dot thing (I don't remember who made it up, but kudos to you!)

It’s hard to know for certain, but I believe the first instance of the shiny dot was this: Pinball Blizzard, by Lex Kominek. Soon thereafter, he used the same bricks to make Disco Stud Chrome Oblique, which shares even more characteristics with your Shiny Dotts. Pretty neat how you have created a sort of homage to the two old-school fontstructors with and x in their name: Kix and Lex!

Your fontsruction is still totally unique and is lookin nice! Style points for the descenders on F G J P Q Y.

Have you tried making all the characters the same width? Either the characters like A B D could become narrower, or characters like O Q U one dot wider. And maybe add a little beak descending from the left of the Z’s top bar, sort of mirroring the lower left of the S. Just a few thoughts on your very cool work, Xeno.

Good work, pal! You will try the lc, please?
PS: I've used also this kind of shining dots in my font zbubblewrap 3D (, they are funny.

@Elmo: As a matter of fact, you were the one who inspired the shiny dot stuff! Kudos to you.
