Very nice. Do you think you will add diacritics as well?
Comment by riccard0 13th November 2011
Perhaps. I'm looking for more dot matrix printouts to get more ideas, there is still some stuff about certain characters I don't like.
I may do diacritics after that.

This is quite terrific. Can you share if this is from a particular printer, or what printout sources you are using?
Comment by Goatmeal 13th November 2011
Its not from any particular printer YET, though I'm working on a 'Fine' version which is more specifically from the dot matrix printers of the '70s an early 80s like the DEC LA50. I'm still making tweaks to this font though

Might I suggest widening the I and J like so? At the very least, the I will match the Z at 4 dots wide, and the bottom curve of the J looks a tad narrow. Love the 6 and 9 with the straight stems - wish I had used them in my Dot Matrix fonts.

I actually JUST widened the Z to 5 dots wide, but I can easily undo that.
Comment by Lord Nightmare 13th November 2011
No, that's fine, too! I just didn't want to mess-up the design of your Z. Moving from 5 dots wide may not allow for a sleek diagonal like you have with at 4 dots wide.

Wow. I cannot type today. I meant to say: "Moving to 5 dots wide may not allow for a sleek diagonal like you have at 4 dots wide."
Comment by Goatmeal 13th November 2011
The 'I' I'm planning to widen (as well as the bottom of the lowercase 'i'), but the 'J' cannot be as wide as your image: the widest a character is 'allowed' to be is 5 dots or 10 halfdots. Your example is 11 halfdots wide.

You are exactly right; sorry about that. How about something like this?
