Last entry for the Reversecomp. Based on the theme of yin yang, opposites, black vs white, reversed colors etc. Was in a hurry so couldn't quite make UC, cause there were so many various variants of this but the result is similar to the font I saw on Behance.
The reversed version of AT Imagiro for the Reversecomp (2nd entry).
This should be printed on paper and cut according to symmetry axis to achieve the result as in the samples.
from the category of 'also ran'
Only interesting in theory; the practical application leaves a lot to be desired. Incomplete as well. Only sharing now because vacations are over. Back to work from tomorrow moring. Won't really have time to work on this in any meaningful way anymore. Unless inspiration strikes out of somewhere and I am able to stay awake past my bedtime.
Every glyph has a counter rotated glyph or has self rotational symmetry—all except the c, which remains a loner loser.

Full disclosure: This fs was started before there was such a thing as Reverse competition.
Side story on the making: This fontstruction is deceptively simple. It was quite a challenge to execute. Just because the strokes seem flowing doesn't mean they are all placed in the logical grid block. The rounded-off ends forced the bricks to be placed in any of the 8 adjoining blocks and nudged into place. Consequently, due to the nature of nudge only moving as much as half a block in any direction, some compromises had to be made in the shapes.
Out of 111 bricks used, only ten are from existing bricks; all the rest are custom bricks. There would have been a lot more bricks if most weren't rotated or flipped.
3 bricks tall.
Entry for the Reversecomp. It's based on the theme of counterclockwise (anticlockwise) direction that is represented by an arrow. Also, Esrever is Reverse written backwards.
Bevel/chisel effect using connecting bricks.
Glyphs B,K,R,S,X,Z,k,s,x,z,2,3,5,7,8 miss cuts because of nudging space limitations.
This font is based off the "ABC Sunday Night Movie" title from the 1970's, as well as WPIX-TV New York's movie titles from the 1970's.
Just keep coming back to these shapes...
Something between AT Schengbers and AT Thinnetry with some more experimental shapes. Spacing can be perfected of course.
Everything can now be outlined with these new awesome bricks, maybe even the classic FS logo needs to be updated now that Fontstructor is more powerful :)
While waiting at a doctor's office, absentmindedly drawing letters on my knee with a new pen in my hand, I realized after I while that I was doodling the glyphs of fs_penmanship, although with curved ends. Which got me thinking that it just might be possible with the new and improved HTML fontstructor.
This is the second version of that idea. The first version had too many compromises in lining up the stacked and nudged bricks. Be that as it may, the new fontstuctor has grown up so much and although quite recognizable compared to the original, but level 1000 in possibilities, all hidden behind a simple interface. Brilliant.
PS, Rob: I found two things that need further updating: 1. Because of the way 4×4 stacks work, nudges need to be in increments of 8th as opposed to the 4th that is currently the case, otherwise, some of the bricks just don't line up. 2. Bricks should be rotatable from the center of the grid box in increments of 15° (or at least 45°).This is a clone
