Font with a "light rays"/stained-glass effect.
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).
An experimental pattern-fill design. Check it out at 2x Pixel size!
Supports Dutch, English, and German at present.
I finally made a folded-/ribbon-style design. This one contains a number of experimental techniques. Most notably, the swept parts of glyphs are allowed to extend beyond the letterwidths and sometimes even the baselines. This enhances the sense of movement, creates some interesting linkages, and reduces the need for kerning.
All of these shapes can be constructed with paper or ribbon, although lots of clever folding tricks, doubling, and pinning down/securing with glue would be required.
Alternate tilde on "±".
Chamadarya is an Integral Artifice (synthetic universe) I created for the ESOSVM simulation in 2013. It's a place dominated by vast stretches of open sky punctuated by extremely tall mesas and plateaus. Most of the buildings and temples there are made from chrysoberyl, which is extensively engraved, often with a lettering style that looks much like this. Of course, that language is non-Latin so it looks nothing like this design.
Experimenting with a new letter concept. This is not the final concept of course, but I developed this along the way, so I kept it.
For best results, use upper and lower case on seperate layers, then merge them together.
A banded version of Jungle High. Lots of brickswapping and manual adjustments were needed to make it!This is a clone of Jungle High
A more patterned version of Jungle High. This will be used for the title screen text.
It also gives me a bit of a "casino" feeling with its diamond pattern and ornate appearance.This is a clone of Jungle High
Font for the second remake of Jungle High, which was one of my first games. Originally for RPG Maker 2000, the game was later ported to Game Maker Studio for inclusion in Seven Candles Trilogy and is now being remade for the second time as a standalone game in a custom engine. This font was inspired by the original game's art (which I created) and will be used in the second remake.
This font makes me think of leaves and cabochon gems, both of which figure prominently in the games. Its slightly plantlike appearance makes it a good companion font for Goud, Junglira, or even Sahuagin.
A design that combines decolike asymmetry with a double line concept. It also incorporates some experimental methods to unify the wider glyphs (mw@#™, etc.) with the others, by allowing the middle sections of these letters to have both the single and double lines. This results in a look that is at times architectural and at other times almost like loopy cursive.
A multiline pattern-fill design that looks like fish scales. It is a very functional multifont, especially at smaller sizes.
The spurs, stems, and line motion add subtle detail to help identify each letter. Additionally, some custom bricks are experimentally combined with the macaroni bricks to preserve the pattern while also forming the curves.
INGREDIENTS: Triangles, Distilled Water, Orange Juice, Citric Acid, Powdered Unicorn Horn, Metaphlogiston Clef-21 (to preserve optical clarity), Waifu Tears.

By request. This is the Shepard Tone of fonts - constantly rising and falling. Best viewed at around 2x Pixel size.
I was initially going to do a lowercase for this, but then the requestor changed their mind. So this being published as-is.
This is your medicine. YOUR medicine! So if you don't like the taste, maybe don't drink it.
Is it Serif or Sans? Western or Gothic? Double font or not? One thing is certain: This is not a time-travelling alien. Probably.
What would happen if we combined a segmented display with a CACTUS? This. This is what would happen.
By request, a "junk font". Looks pointy, glitchy, fuzzy, janky, grungy, burned, rusty, distressed by power tools, or some superposition of ONE OF THESE OR MORE, depending on the size used and the rendering effects (antialiasing, smoothing, etc).
Rather than force the letters into convincing classical forms, I focused on making sure each letter was thoroughly scrambled. This design could in theory be used with an image-recognition script in order to be put to cryptographic uses... the result would be fun, but not very efficient or crackproof. UC is the same as LC, at least for now.
The original brick-of-bricks is located on ".". This is the template from which the other glyphs were made.
1. Up to 25 distinct bricks from the palette may be used in the overall construction.
2. Each glyph will incorporate a heterogeneous mix of these bricks.
3. Bricks may not be flipped, rotated, stacked or composited.
A variant of Radio Grave which took many hours to produce. I think the effort was worth it! This is a functional Multi-font and can produce a broad range of effects, especially when used at down near the original size.
1. Use the darkest tone on the outermost concentric region and get lighter as one progresses inward.
2. Let the 5x5 region surrounding the exact center of each glyph use the lightest tone, except when this would place the lightest tone into its neighboring region.
3. Glyphs with diagonals and glyphs which use a smaller than 5x5 drawing area may bend rule 2 for the sake of more consistent and/or interesting shading.

Experimental font doodle made with the pizza slice brick. It reminds me of the keeled scales of a viper.
This creates many distinct visual effects depending on size and coloring!
Fuzzy Logic, but the darkest halftone has been replaced with a copy of the lightest.
The bands in the overlapping regions are artifacts of the FS preview. They don't show up when the font is used elsewhere. However, any size which is not a multiple of the original can create a different type of banding... I recommend using this at larger sizes...This is a clone of Fuzzy Logic
Some puzzling boxes, indeed! These are named for Lemarchand, maker of the puzzle box which appeared in the movie series "Hellraiser".
This design has a variety of textures and optical illusions up its sleeve. See the sample for a few of them.
Original size: 47pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Halftone patterns on a square grid. Gives me a "crime lab" feeling for some reason. Maybe it's the resemblance to frosted glass...
