PS is this for a type class at UWE?
As you refine the balance of these pictoglyphs, pay special attention to their relative “gray” values. Right now, A and V read as having both a higher contrast and slightly darker overall appearance.
And when you are finished outlining and shading them bones, I highly recommend your explore the creation of custom composite bricks and brick substitutions to realize different organic shading/etching/half-toning effects. Dots work well enough, but I promise: these variations may be especially useful when designing and printing your specimen book!
10/10 for concept alone!
Will, thank you for your constructive criticism! I am currently modifying the A and the V, but what do you mean by brick substitutions for the shading? could you give an example of a better way of shading?
Unfortunately, the best effect requires using 2:2 filters. This way, the halftone bricks overlap partially and perfectly and thus quadruple the apparent resolution of the image by creating intermediate tones. You will have to “grid-double” each of your glyphs (space each row and column out with an 1-brick buffer) in 1:1 and then apply the 2:2 filters to achieve this result. Good luck!
p.s. this is just one of many possible halftoning arrays. I will try to publish some more and will update you as they are ready.
It is stopping me publishing and using several of my own fonts for the same reason. The smaller the dot - the more distorted it becomes.
i also uwe...choose decay too>
btw you thoroughly kicked everyones ass with this. I love my own fonts, but holy shit your good!
The opening lines read:
"The following information is an account of processes that I experienced through creating the font entitled 'Badger Spine. By chance I came across the bones of a decomposed badger, I removed it from the areas it was found and soaked it in household bleach for a few days"
I ask again, of the 2013 people who have downloaded it, - Has any one actually used it? It's top of the 'Top Picks' fontstruct chart, which is shocking, as to me it has extremely low usage qualities in the real world. Is it just being given praise for being detailed?
Possibly the weirdest inspiration for a font I've seen in a while, but one of the best executions!
@mooreg7: Use the uppercase until the lowercase gets finished.
@hollydennis: Finish the lowercase and '?'. Maybe even the rest of ASCII.
No joke I have not seen one SINGLE font that is as good as this one. The detail you added to the bones is amazing!
When viewed in pixel size the font looks like something from an old-fashioned video game. I kinda like that :)
Oh my gosh!!!
@anonymous-0 Yeah.. also you're literally an error page
This is blowing my mind that you made this in Fontstruct. Well done!
no badgers were heart in the making of this font (at least i hope so)
HURT NOT HEART
