It does look good at large scale indeed!

I want more!, I want more!... Excellent "fish scales" (sorry for the joke, pal). I'm waiting for the entire development of the font!

Looks kind of fluffy, somehow... maybe it can work as feathers too? :) I really like the lowercase letters.

You've really scaled the heights with this one :) 10/10

Thank you all for the nice words!

Now I can't decide if the numbers should end in a bend (like 2 and 3) or be more straight (like 5, 6 and 9), but I feel I should be more consistent. I am also going to work on a wider M. And seeing how popular this is, I guess I'm going to make some diacritics and some more punctuation next :)

@Umbreon126: Of course they look sort of like feathers too. Added it to the tags. Thank you.

Pretty lc! And now, I beg your pardon about one idea: something with your "t": you can try eliminate the bottom curve in some cases with these results (It's just an suggestion)...

Beautiful work. I wonder, why did you break the pattern at the middle of the capitals? Kudos for the full Latin and the Cyrillic set. 10/10

Congrats for the TP!

@Frodo7: I'm with you about the capitals.

The capitals needed to be just a bit wider, so I added a semi-column in the middle for symmetry.

The middle one had just the right width for me.
