OMG! it's amazing
Comment by Adien Gunarta (Adien Gunarta) 12th March 2011
I certainly set myself a challenge. It's asking for trouble doing all this notchy stuff, and trouble is what I got. The biggest problem is weight discrepancy. It's right at the limit of what's doable -- and some of the glyphs show the strain. There are daft choices -- I always make some -- but overall it seems to hang together pretty well.

This font is just great. I think the W and M are maybe to big, but this is really a quality font.

It's valuable to have a fresh pair of eyes looking. When you've spent a few hours on it, objectivity goes out the window. You're right. I'll tighten them both up by a couple of bricks.

Another masterpiece, as usual. 10/10 :D

Wow! You're really cranking these fonts out! Please, keep going!
I agree with elmo's rating.

One idea to strengthen the "M" and "W", but surely you've already tried it before and discarded.

Robust letters carved out of solid (Carpathian) rock. They have the hallmarks of your unmistakable style.
Very impressive. 10/10
Comment by Frodo7 12th March 2011
@elmoyenique: I've gone with a composite-formed 1/4 width brick either side of the central downstroke instead. It does create an illegal join which I've glossed over with an incorrect brick. The patch is on a tiny scale relative to the size of the glyph -- I can live with it. (There are others, surprise surprise.)

Meanwhile: those l/c height figs which are neither one thing nor another... well, it was worth a go. There isn't enough room in the grid for the 6,9 and 8; I don't feel inclined to try a proper oldstyle ascenders/descenders treatment, so I'll have to boost the fig set up to cap-height. Besides, that 4 is undeniably awful, ha ha!

@frodo7: when I started I was aiming for a kind of Dracula look but finally it doesn't seem sinister enough. There is a hint of the carpathians about it -- maybe it's the fangs.
