Making the pixel font classy My most characters ever? For the record, Cryllic is virtually impossible in a 3x5 monospaced environment.

Cool. But this is 3x7, and with the descenders it increases the grid even more.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 7th july 2012
Some of the letters are fuzzy at pixel view. A pixel font should look razor sharp on the screen, that's the point of using them. Try to modify the fuzzy letters: use only whole square bricks with no filters.

I learned more about the problem. The glyphs are fine, but the spacing was a fraction, not integer. For pixel fonts, the spacing value should be an integer. In case of dm Xu: 4 is perfect. Otherwise the font pixels won't fall on whole screen pixels, and consequently become fuzzy.

10/10 Awesome.

The r is cool, it looks strange but is completely recognizable as an r.

@Frodo7 Well that explains a lot I see in font previews.
Comment by Houlaiziaa 7th july 2012
I just noticed the sample isn't completely monospaced... or something. The letters don't exactly line up all the time.
Comment by Houlaiziaa 7th july 2012
I made a clone and I'm adding stuff lol

Also fixed the width problem, and your pound sign is a width of 4.

And the font's height is really 12, counting all the descenders and accents and stuff.

@demonics - Ugliness in standard pixel fonts? I, sir, am offended! :^) :^) :^)

Wow, a lot happens when I leave FS for 12 hrs :-)
Thanks so much for your support, guys:

@AFT // 3x5 is based upon the x-height. But thanks!

@Frodo7 // Thanks for getting so involved over a simple pixel font. I'll change the spacing when I get a chance.

@umbreon126 // Thanks! The sample was justified spacing, not left-aligned, because left-aligned didn't look so good in the tight rectangle. Pound sign: this £ or this # ? This £ I couldn't figure out an alternative for so it extended into another character but the width is still 3. Thanks for caring! :-)

@goatmeal // I wanted to spark some life into pixel fonts :-)

@redux // I was partially inspired by your gallery. It's cool. I was also inspired by the font that FontStruct uses for the FontStructor (I believe it is Officina Serif) at pixel size.

Thanks @everyone for your support !

Nice work. 10/10

Thanks Frodo7 !

Nice one, demonix! The "ugliness" of this pixels is the cool side of this font. While can't be used well in small size, it can be used beautifully in medium - big size!
