@Dmitriy Sychiov: thanks for the support!

Comment by Gr4ftY (groan) Sat, 9th december

This font is so cool, especially the "g"!

Comment by Kiên Trung (trungdangTrung Kiên) Sun, 10th december

@Kiên Trung: thanks! And I agree, the lowercase "g" is my favorite as well.

Comment by Gr4ftY (groan) Sun, 10th december

@Gr4ftY: Maybe it sounds strange, but the Υ can be designed similar to an Y. 

Comment by Kiên Trung (trungdangTrung Kiên) Sun, 10th december

@Kiên Trung: once again, thanks for your help! the Υ looks much better now.

Comment by Gr4ftY (groan) Mon, 11th december

Congratulations! I would like to see more characters in the font (accents and other diacritics). And I add a suggestion for the "y" for you to consider if you like it.

Oh, I forgot to mention in the above image that the spurs both lowercase letters p & q had also been lowered by 1/8th unit.

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 11th december

Lowering the spurs a tad bit bellow the vertex of a shoulder curve on such letters creates the impression of optical compensation!

Thanks for the many tips, I'm on mobile rn so I can't use the shift-click shortcut on the blocks to edit them but I will try to apply them when I get home.

how far i did come

also you can add these in the PUA

Comment by SUMMER701 Sun, 10th march

Add greek lowercase letter alpha because the lowercase Latin A is only one storey. Fix the lowercase Latin A.

Comment by SFBTEF23GotCatrinityFont Sat, 23rd march

@SFBTEF23GotCatrinityFont There are two forms of the lowercase a, one of which is the single-storey a—which this font has—that appears commonly in handwriting, and some fonts intended to be read by children, and italic fonts (although some italic fonts have the double-storey form).

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) Sat, 23rd march

if someone who can edit comments sees this, please delete the first "and", not counting the "and" in handwriting.
