I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands, which resulted in this font. The initial idea was to make a font inspired by the (handwritten?) signs in retail stores, but it quickly took a turn for the more comic.

+++work in progress+++
The hardest one was "z" until i saw theres a cool solution made out of "a" :D However this in NOT inspired by 60ies, i was more thinking about Tattoo Art, or some kind of a slashing Samurai thingy... Thats maybe why i changed the name from "Dark Matter" to "Dark Shogun"

Very rough Script.
Vertical design with 45degres connection. Each individual glyph are unsightly but combine in words it has its charm.
Use Uppercase for the first letter of each word
All lowercase are connected.

A swarthy and stout decorative script of humble origins. Gaze fixed on the far horizon, he readies himself to cast fortune on the seven seas. Every pirate has their beginnings somewhere...This is a clone

My personal handwriting when i use Felt tip calligraphy pens (the cheap ones) as my daily writing pen, These are the most common letters I write with, there are many other variants, but the forms i chose worked best on Fontstruct. There are Numbers (and maybe other language writing systems like Cyrillic, Katakana, Hiragana.

I wanted to make a vertically heavy font, and what better sources of inspiration than Arabic script and Western typography. I think it made a good mix; it seems very desert like.

Sort of like an old script, huh?
Feel free to clone it if you want to check it out. Feel free, also, to download it, if you want to make me do this face :), only in real life.
Any suggestions for the letters? As it stands, it's W.I.P., and if anybody has any suggestions, throw em out there.

Kemasyuran Jawa (in Indonesian) = Notoriety of Java (in english). I think i need to tell the world that Java and Thai is different. And, enjoy the font

Based off of the legendary American Uncial. It was very difficult, as this is my first DOT font, but I am pleased with the results. I had to cheat on the x-height a few times (especially on s), but most of the letters are exactly like their counterparts in American Uncial. Please, do not use this font to write in any language other than Gaelic. Nah, just kidding. Use it however you want. Except if your language isn't based on Latin, because I only have Latin characters.

Inspired by the works of geneus1 (especially Calligraphique).
I tried to go for sort of a mixture of black letter, chancery, and heavy metal. I love the way the & turned out (combining the E and t. For those of you who don't know, the ampersand is based off of the Latin word for "and", et), and especially the K and J.
By far, this is the best FontStruction I have ever, ever, EVER, EVER made. And probably ever will make.

Clone of slubgob.
I saw some stringy potential dyed in the wool of intaglio’s original and tried to draw it out. First I added one brick to the x-height; second I added little connecting, er, nubs for a very tightly spaced continuous script. From there, I was basically done, but then had very little restraint and took it to this point, which is now sort of a mishmash of styles (let’s just go ahead and rule out all caps settings right here and now ;)
I am hoping one of y’all fontstructors will chime in with the next version that really knits the job up all nice like! Or, barring that, I will try to tighten it up and continue to defer all praise to intaglio.
Edit [12/10/09]: After receiving the blessing of intaglio, I added More Latin and the first half of Extended Latin A. This fontstruction is nearing its final stitches, however I still welcome suggestions and additions. As seen in my samples below, it seems to work well with a rounded outside stroke. Be forewarned: Approximately -10 tracking and some manual kerning are a must to properly render the connected script effect. Enjoy! : )This is a clone of slubgob
