SPOOKY GHOST FONT. A work in progress. Getting the right spooky apparition look is pretty intensive, but I managed to finish the basic character set before Halloween. :D

*

This started as a 5x5 design. After realizing S and Z would look far better if I made them 1 square taller, I converted the whole font to be roughly 5x6. At this low resolution, it's hard to get the degree of irregularity which I think makes these letters look ghostly... but, the idea is certainly present!

This design seems like it'd fit in with a lot of horror and science fiction stuff, too. Apart from the "smoky"/"ghostly" look, it has a "melted" one which suggests a hot place or maybe immersion in acid. It also looks a bit like slime, and finally at smaller sizes it has a glitch-esque appearance.

I love it! I'm not sure if it's more groovy or spooky. I think the P needs some work though.

True, some letters like P and X don't quite have the wavering quality that the other letters have.

I also think the flat top on several letters (ABCDEFGJP) decreases the effect, too. I might have to allow some letters to break the 5x6 constraint...

Hah-ha!  What a great immagination you have.

Thanks! The design's where I want it now... nice and turbulent-looking!
