THIS FONT IS A COPY OF "FORMAL ROMAN"
I want to try to expand this font so it can have more characters and supports more varieties of languages
Note: This font isn't complete, I'll make it available to download when it's finishedThis is a clone of Formal Roman
The name "zashitnik" comes from the great "Luna" sci-fi trilogy by Ian McDonald (meaning fighter with knives hired for trials by combat, literally "defender").
Pixel-rounded version of zhowfrakt. Another point of view, more "organic".This is a clone of zhowfrakt eYe/FS
Another "genre" font, this one for the invaluable old style vampire people. BTW, sinople is the name of the green colour in heraldic.
After zilverbullet (my last font for lycanthropes) here you are another special, this time is for... zombies! NB: Contains some alternatives to the UC (in the LC) and cyrillic set.
Small caps version for zendera eYe/FS, making the set grow, but this also works as a font by itself. Some kerning jobs are still in progress, I'm sorry.This is a clone of zendera eYe/FS
Including cyrillic (to native cyrillic users about my glyphs: help & comments are welcomed, please). Some kerning is in process. See also zendera smallcaps eYe/FS.

Ahh sadly due to repeatedly running into a corrupted font when I save newly made changes to it, it eventually catched up with me and tested the limit of my patience.
I have had to painstakingly restore the font 5 times already since I started it.
So I stopped including new characters as well as making new changes to its existing character set. (At least for now)
Too bad because I wouldve loved to see this truly getting finalized.
So at this stage there are still a number of characters that remain in rough condition, and had yet to be further optimized.
The main A-Z alphabet luckily already was close to how I invisioned it, but especially the numerals, symbols and accents still have some rough edges.
Now, forgetting all that, I still think it is not a bad font at all. Everything is there for most common Western-European languages, somewhat still making this a usable font that I shouldn't be keeping in private!
I hope that despite my bad luck this time, y'all still like it.
About this Font:
The idea was to make a classic Didone style display serif that is meant for making clean headline text similar to those often seen in older magazines or newspapers. I set out trying to design a semi-bold & slight expanded looking letterform with thin hairline serifs and strokes. I choose a large grid scale for the extra freedom in custom shaping this provides.
Technique I used in this design:
This font in particular I have experimented with working within a "(asymmetrical-) Grid Scale ratio" ( 1,5:1 ), so, changing only the value for the Horizontal grid scale. (This distorts the grid aspect ratio, and is a great way to discover and experiment with getting new forms and shapes).
The 1,5 : 1 ratio was specifically choosen to keep maths simple, in order to rebuild certain required bricks that build specific slope angles , such as a 45° (which is no longer possible to make from the FS default brick set when using asymmetric scale ratios, unless making composites).
But what this also does is opening up a totally new approach to making shapes, and..becoming quite a surprisingly easy shortcut to get unusual shapes or make variations on these, even with as little as just the rotation of the bricks/selection. (thanks to the distorted aspect ratio) :-).
This is a must try for those who are into large grid designs, fake curves or interrested in experimenting around a little.
An old font revisited and revitalised: now it's weird but fun. No diacritics, almost no punctuation nor symbols. Simply because I think this is not exactly useful ;)This is a clone of Romaeo Stand
Dresde Serif displays chiseled uppercase and flared terminals to give extra sturdyness.This is a clone of Dresde Sans
Translator needed to get SH, ZH, CH, and TH characters:
Added some new Characters for vowels, Silent Ts and Rolled Rs.

Dublin is a slanted slab serif with a corky personality. The mechanical lowercase set was supposed to go with highly ornamental Script caps, but I'm still frustrated trying to make those to work on this...
Meanwhile, comments on the different alternatives of this as it is would be highly appreciated.
I love the look of this style. The name is self explanatory ;) if you know French.........
UC, numerals and some symbols have one line thicker than the others, LC only has the thinner lines. LC can be used on its own if even thickness of lines is desired but it is 3 px shorter than UC which will show clearly when using Basic Latin LC in combination with Hebrew, numerals, some symbols and some punctuation marks. Cyrillic and Hebrew added. Latin1 will come soon.
