A brilliant and bold stencil face. Despite having a wide gap in the middle, the characters are neat, the text is legible. The H is a problem to be solved. May I suggest to do the horizontal stroke at the midsection as you did in the T. The Q can also be improved. The rest of the glyphs are terrific. Congratulations. 10/10

Thank you for the insightful tips, Frodo7! I shall incorporate them when I perform the next edit.

As you know, this type of font is not my usual style. I was hesitant about having such a wide middle gap. Originally, it started out a filter-function experiment, making it 2x wide; I may revisit doubling the width as a clone.

i liked your original version also. this one tends to steer towards a more traditional stencil face. your original was bold and made a statement. i think you should consider making both versions available. although the H was in the style of lc, i felt that using it allowed you to succeed within the filter settings you had made. sometimes we have to make these stylistic sacrifices in order to realize all glyphs :)

both Q's seem to read as lc e to me. your originals were better. here is my suggestion.

or using a little brickstacking :)
Comment by funk_king 21st February 2010
I agree with funk_king on the Q: the original was better. The H: it is easier to say something than actually do it. I'll try to figure out something and let you know. That's the best part of fontstruction, when you have to think hard, and the solution is nowhere near the horizon.

Thanks to you both, funk_king and Frodo7.

I have split off the second version (2x2 filter) into a clone, "Arthur Decorates Again", and returned this one back to its original 1x1 filter size.

As always, I look forward to any suggestions you may have!

A good bit of original work, well worth a 10.

I do agree with fk and Frodo about the Q ... it looks a bit 'lost' at the moment.
