I genuinely enjoy creating fonts. Unfortunately, I have never had the extra $400.00 to shell out for Fontographer (which according to the demos and freeware is the only font editor that will run on any of my systems). I have been having fun with these free online font tools, and Fonstruct is among the best. I also design websites and graphics, I sell domains and hosting. Plus, I have a few other online ventures. I admin the Web Design and Development Group which has a presence at Google Groups as well as Facebook. But my main pursuit is art and challenging myself to be the artist I am (and keep improving). I have really enjoyed FontStruct so far, and I will stick around as long as I feel I am a part of this community, as I had learned some great things, was happy with my progress and excited about my projects and future. But need feedback on my work to feel that I am a part of this artist's community, as well.

Clone of Lead Balloon (by me). Redesigned version that won't exactly replicate the logo of the greatest rock band of all time, but it looks pretty good, anyway.
There are plenty of alternates, so if you don't like it, just clone it and switch out the version of the letter you like, or make your own.
I still have some things to do... The spacing on the L is off. I will make the q smaller... etc...

OK... I think I fixed the spacing on the L and started playing with all my other projects when I noticed that Rob Meek made Mothership a Top Pick. YAY! LOL. So, I made the Q smaller.
Other than that, I'm not sure if I want to change anything else. You can clone it and I have all sorts of alternative characters, or you can make your own.
Hmmm... I'm so excited, I'm repeating myself. It's my first Top Pick! ;) Hopefully it won't be my only one.
OK, the L appeared OK in FontStruct, but it didn't look so hot in Photoshop. I'm trying again. This is a clone
