A font made for a LuneKnight, a Terraria mod by yours truly. It gets its name because parts of it remind me of halberd, partisan, and/or axe heads. I designed this to have the vaguely authoritation look of a Didone as well as a borderline-gaudy look that prevents this from being taken too seriously. These changes lent some much-needed character to the prototypical Didone from which this design evolved. The uppercase letters are more heavily ornamented, as if to suggest that they are letters from an illuminated manuscript.
The main texture is a diamond pattern inspired by vent holes in medieval armor. These were often made with a square punch, and help the font look more handmade. Actually, most of the quirks this font possesses are present to help present a handmade look.
The wider letters are incised, which seems to lessen their perceived wideness by breaking up the shapes. For me this effect lent a more natural flow to the reading.
The ornamentation rules are complicated and factor in lettershapes, English letter frequency, and the existing design parameters. One thing I can concisely explain is that glyphs which normally look fairly plain are ornamented to such an extent that they make others look plain instead (CGJLT1 among others).
I really liked my last slab serif font, and so I decided to make another one. This time, we've put the file on it and rounded the corners.
From The 1988 Game Godzilla: Monster Of Monsters!
also yes i added these unused glyphs: : ; '
Small-grid doodle which creates new combinatorial forms.
I considered this design rather rough and unappealing until I gave it negative spacing. This caused the forms to merge together in unpredictable and interesting ways. The lesson here is that sometimes the metrics, not the aesthetics, are what "make" or "save" a design.
I trying to make this font look like somebody drew it on paper...
I WANT TO MAKE ALL UNICODE
Такой агрессивный футуристический стиль стал считаться геймерским. И теперь представьте, что он ещё и светится!
Such an aggressive futuristic style has become considered gaming style. And now imagine that it also glows!
Perhaps this is the limit of my capabilities.
Taken from _Priscilla Juniors' Cross Stitch Book_ byThe Priscilla Publishing Co. (1914). Orginal only has minuscule.
All characters that you can type on the Audiovox (Toshiba) CDM-9500 in 11px size.
It's been a fun one to make, this one. A very late-90s futurism slant to it, if you want something for your Dreamcast convention it's pretty much all yours.
