A double-line style with a twist. Named for the Exage Viral Armada (EVA), a mutagenic virus featured in several of my own games and stories. EVA causes rapid limb bifurcation and the spontaneous generation of butterflies, both of which can be seen in various glyphs from this design.
The exact rules for this are somewhat complicated, and based on structural as well as visual analysis. The basic idea can be seen on glyphs like k and x: Closed loops (double line) are joined by single lines which turn back on themselves to create the illusion of more lines. Of course, this idea had to be modified for most of the other glyphs, for the sake of stylistic consistency and visual interest. Particularly, almost all the spurred glyphs have the double-line structures open up to form the spurs.This is a clone
Another font following a slant? Am I crazy?
So I saw this sample for a font called Macbeth that hasn't been digitized, so I took it into my own hands to do it. Check it!
Edge of the Galaxy, a font where no man has gone before.
Inspired by the Star Trek logo and the font Horizon by Bitstream, This font follows a slant design to work as a space age corporate font. It's also super tight, for use on display and posters.
Pixel prototype of a font for an upcoming game being developed by yours truly. This will likely be used, but only for flashbacks and dreams. The normal ingame font may be a high-res version of this, or something different - tests are still being done to determine this.
English only for now, as there are no plans to localize the game myself.
"Madufaros" = "daughter of Madu".
Original size: 9pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfect rendering)
Doodle doodle DOODLE!
The flaws which were previously evident in the counter shapes have been corrected. This design is now suitable for use at any legible size.
Version 1.1 - Added Polish.
A font for times when Immersive Mode is turned off. This is used for documents and signage within the Euphedoran Extradimensional Research Institute situated in Euphedora, Greater Azwelkeland, Planet Ashr within ESOSVM.
EERI is known for Fengmiao Fukota, Salva Dheen and Triste Marinan, three of ESOSVM's most-learned and chronologically oldest AI characters. The lattermost of these is often consulted (through a software called MIDAS) for analysis which I use to improve the readability of certain fonts.
Small-grid doodle which creates new combinatorial forms.
I considered this design rather rough and unappealing until I gave it negative spacing. This caused the forms to merge together in unpredictable and interesting ways. The lesson here is that sometimes the metrics, not the aesthetics, are what "make" or "save" a design.
Revisiting Celosia, this time with faux-beziers instead of pixels.
Alternate @ design on ©.
Font with a "light rays"/stained-glass effect.
THE MOMENT YOU STEP INTO SPOOK MANSION, YOU REALIZE YOU DONE GOOFED UP. THE DOOR SLAMS SHUT BEHIND YOU AS SCARY PIANO MUSIC BEGINS TO WASH OVER YOU AND TERRIFYING KICK DRUM SOUNDS BEGIN TO PUMMEL YOU. WITHIN MOMENTS, YOU ARE DROWNING IN A SEA OF EERIE AMBIENCE. "WOE BETIDE THE FOOL WHO CONSPIRES TO TAKE MY RICHES!", SHOUTS A GHOSTLY VOICE SOMEWHERE BEHIND YOU. YOU TURN, BUT NOTHING'S THERE. BOO! LOL....................................................
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.
This is an unofficial forum I have made for FontStruct tutorials and educational materials. Want to know how to do something, or how to make a certain style or effect? This is the place to ask. I am not part of staff, and am far from being the most advanced user on here, but will pass on whatever I can.
I have been writing an FS video series for some time, but it has proven very time-consuming to make the series as comprehensive (and as high-quality) as I would like. It has also occurred to me that I can teach a lot through simple text and graphics. This is my attempt to create a knowledge hub for FS where all the good stuff is in one place. If you make a tutorial or expand on mine in some way, you're welcome to post those here as well.
Please keep the discussion topical. This page is about tutorials, requests and discussions for them, etc. Idea Soup is more of a free-for-all and anything FS-related is accepted there. Idea Soup is also a good place to discuss tutorial ideas, since we can work out exactly what needs to be taught there without clogging the comment section here. (There is a limit on the number of comments this page can have, right?)
This page is open to users of all languages, but we may have to use Google Translate to answer you. Sorry in advance for any bad translations :D

The font used for these forums is Tangereen 2.
Is it Serif or Sans? Western or Gothic? Double font or not? One thing is certain: This is not a time-travelling alien. Probably.
I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.
A pixel font which combines four experimental techniques at once:
1. Structurally disconnecting the stems from the open parts of letters.
2. Allowing glyphs to extend beyond the reaches of width and starting position.
3. Designing glyphs specifically to connect and form new shapes, rather than simply allowing shapes to emerge from existing characteristics.
4. Designing glyphs so that the overall font is free of a need for kerning.
Alternates are now on UPPER CASE. I'll continue to update this as I get more ideas!
Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Version 1.5: Added Greek and made many refinements. Also came up with a new tilde design for all the glyphs that have one.
By request, a casual art deco design.
A slightly leafy engraving-style Decolike.
By request, a condensed and quirky outline font!
Original size: 7.5pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
Version 1.3: Added Polish.
This font used to be a normal Decolike... until someone decided to chow down on it! They seemed to prefer the taste of spurs, as all of them have been bitten off, leaving only semicircular impressions.
"Nervousa" is an anagram for "Ravenous".
