An attempt at Gridbug in 2x2!
50,000 shared glyphs! That's like fifty TIMES A THOUSAND!
Trying this style out. The name comes from a monster in the game NetHack.
The current month seems to hold a meaning of threads: of fog, dew covered spiders' webs, barely-there things, feint perceptions defying scientific understanding and fine links with ancestors, to keep us in the present and enable open minds and caring souls to better the future. This abstract interpretation of Halloween has been designed to echo the traditionally mysterious mood to show the past (known glyphs, earlier FS bricks) linked in the present (on paper, in the FS previews, and using some of Meek's newest bricks I experiment with in this design) to create future (text will carry meaning to the reader, diversity of thought not experienced until after every glyph is finished, and beauty of text flow is visible only after it has been written). Totally within my personal plan for Night Pegasus' work: adventurous, alternative, divergent, different, exploring, experimental, unusual -- after all, the flying horse is free to visit any time any item or existence in this universe and any place in Fontstruct, to discover and weigh possibilities, to create its future from the past in it's present body and mind, and it does this cloaked in black as deepest night, undiscovered unless someone has their feelers tuned into mystery and taps into experiences of presence.
:.:.:.: Information to help you when using this font :.:.:.:
If a LC glyph follows a UC glyph: you need to use the space bar 6X to get the correct letter space (it will then match the natural spacing between LC); using only LC glyphs (or only UC glyphs) will give satisfactory text results as letter space is set by the programming. But you'll need to manually add the word space you want: between UC (or LC) words a minimum of 3 space taps for a just visible gap, use the space bar 6x for good spacing. Experiment!
Note: the full stop and comma have a line on the baseline to link with UC. There might be no need for a 'space' after those two marks even on LC? The apostrophy has a short line to link it to previous/following UC glyphs (note those link lines retain the meaning of the glyph when used with LC glyphs or an LC following an UC glyph).
SPACE BAR = a 1px space; tap 3x to get a small word space that's obvious
% key = a set of reasonably wide lines to match upper case verticals
_underscore = a space consisting of a long single line on base line only
I'm trying to figure out some diacritics befor the 31st so this remains WIP
A stencil version of RC Dynamite made for laser cutting! Could also be an LCD Segment design with slight modification...This is a clone of RC Dynamite
A stencil design in which diagonal cuts are used to imply angles and curves. It does not quite obey the rules of a segmented display, but it tries its best!
This is inspired by some text on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
The first of a kind - an experimental font made with the new pizza slice brick. :D
Somehow it makes me think of jukeboxes, particularly letters like "A" and "O" which have the same sort of "mosaic lighting" look which many jukeboxes have.
No filters, just nudging!
A font wherein each glyph is depicted through the placement of exactly 5 pixels on a 5x5 grid. This was inspired by basketball where only 5 players per team are on the court at once.
I feel these glyphs could be useful in many ways for board games since it takes very few pieces to render these shapes. These letters could be formations of troops or vehicles, for instance.
Just a stencil doodle. Seems like it would go well with the Kitchen Sink family.
This is built at roughly 3.5x5, but shrunk with filters to look squareish and to make the line spacing very small.

Army stencil font based on funk_king's - Dog Tag.
Well, it's been a while, work has ramped up during this school term. I never complain about that though. I'd rather be busy with work I'm comfortable doing. But I digress.
This font is Spruce, as seen in GEOS FontPack PLUS on the Commodore 64. Not sure whether you'd call this stencilled or segmented. It's got an odd set of descenders, and I've corrected some glyps so they're symmetrical top and bottom, even if that gives them ascenders. This may not spruce up your font collection as such (groan)...
5x5 pixel font in which no lines are allowed to bend or touch at all. Where they would bend or touch, they are segmented instead.
Possible non-game uses for this: Circuit design, light arrangement, wiring design, αPX electronics, primitive writing systems...
Original size: 3.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
This one's a request from a friend. :^)
A "hullaballoon" is a person who stores up spite/malice/controversy/etc. and then suddenly releases it all at once, like a deflating balloon. Also, the name of one of the many joke bands I created.
LC 2 px high, 9 px wide. LC are 8 high 9 wide except for glyphs with a curved base which are half a pixel below what might be expected. Numbers have varying heights for aesthetic reasons, not because I'm blind, careless or incompetent.
.:*:.:*:.:*:.:*:.:*:.:*:. just saying - because I have this aversion regarding people wanting me to think like them, make fonts like theirs or like they expect. Maybe they don't want or can't understand originality, avant-garde work or just a font that has individuality?
Il mondo è bello perché è vario.
In der Kreativität entsteht Fortschritt.
<< Open Directory Project >>>
Kreativität bezeichnet die Fähigkeit intelligenter Lebewesen, neue und ungewöhnliche Lösungen für Problemstellungen zu finden. Voraussetzung für Kreativität ist die Fähigkeit, Dinge und Vorgehensweisen frei und neu kombinieren und entwickeln zu können. Ein wesentlicher Bestandteil ist oft die Fähigkeit, produktiv gegen Regeln zu denken und zu handeln (also: nicht nur zu kombinieren) und damit auch neue Regeln aufzustellen.
I joined Fontstruct December last year.
My very first contribution back then was a tribute to the great Dutch graphical designer "Jurriaan Schrofer". And many more followed.
These past six months have passed very quickly, and, much to my surprise I can proudly pronounce that I have passed the point of 10,000 shared glyphs mark. Totally crazy, I'd never expected to have been putting out such a substantial volume of work.
Thank you all for the kind words and the support I so far reveived. I hope all of you have been enjoying my contributions so far, since there is much more to come! :)
As for the new font,
It's not so much of a celebrating work for a 10.000th glyph submission but it isn't bad either, so enjoy once more.
Another recap of the works by "Jurriaan Schrofer"!

MILITIA - A bold geometric typeface inspired by the military.
It comes in 2 style variations (solid/stencil) and features uppercase plus small uppercase letters!
SUTORAIPU ORIGAMI - A display typeface that was inspired by origami.
