Incredible work. I regret this won't appear in the gallery until there are at least 10 glyphs. Would love to see more if you can do it!

Glad you like it! I didn't know it would take 10 glyphs; I didn't even notice that it wasn't in the gallery. Thanks! I'll add real letters for filler gliphs, then replace them with pictures over time. Maybe I'll get 26 eventually...

Astounding! Too astounding, in fact. This is one of the few FontStructions that are too complex for our current system. Unfortunately, it can't be downloaded until that limitation can be fixed. We're very sorry!

Is there any way I can get around it? Perhaps by separating the pictures into different fonts or splitting them in half and putting each picture on two characters, like I did with Mona Lisa?
Comment by ^.^ 29th july 2008
Yes, the best way to get around it would be to separate it into two or more fonts. So clone it and then delete the characters you don't want from each font. Spreading the pictures across multiple characters won't help.

Thanks, Meek. I'll try it.
*It worked, though I had to add some extra characters to get the required 10. Part II took a bit of tweaking to make it show up in the gallery, but it works now.

It's like Art History class all over again! I identified most images before you posted their authors. This is a great and meticulous work. I thought I was a glutton for punishment. But of course, now I've got to give it a try. Congrats!

I tried looking through an art history book for picture ideas, but there weren't many that were recognizable enough. I'm more of a punishment connoisseur than a punishment glutten. If I were a gluten for punishment, I would have done the Last Supper (since the height is 34 pixels for all of the glyphs, and the Last Supper is so long, it might as well be two pictures) and all of Campbell's Soup Cans. Or I could have used more than four shades. It's fun though. I use grayscale in Photoshop, scale down the picture, and click image> adjustments> posterize. Four is usually the best number of levels, but sometimes I have to use more to get it right. I keep the info box open and use the rectangular selection tool. Around 1200% magnification works for me, but it really depends on your monitor's size. The info box tells me how wide and high the selection is. It takes a while, but I didn't time it. If I did, I would have already quit.

If you already know all that about Photoshop, or whatever program you use, my apologies for the enormous post.
