It is finally done! It took me around 3 full days of design work and polishing.
The major character design part is about done, and I probably will only add some additional extra ligatures and special characters.
The design approach is a large grid Faux Bezier style to get the most out of custom shaping Top/bottom grid scale is a total of 71 bricks with ascenders and descenders included.
I have done a whole lot of finalizing background work already, and many pairs have been kerned already, but not everything was done yet, this is going to be completed within the next few days.
- Littera Textualis Emergo -
A formal Gothic minuscule that was inspired by Latin bookhand script, better known as 'Textualis'. This script was popular between the 12th & 16th century. Basically Those that would have been used for the main text of Latin books.
A more detailed description is has been written down in a sample image posted in the comment section bellow.
I hope y'all like it as much as I do.
CheersThis is a clone
Another textualis style calligraphic blackletter / gothic script typeface.
Besides the Basic Latin character set this has a lot of special use characters and alternatives too, such as:
Ligatures, Superscript, lining (default) & oldstyled numeral forms (located in halfwidth), traditional medieval punctuation marks (located in private use). And there is even a complete, but slightly modified & smaller version of the alphabet located in the Halfwidth unicode block as well.
I hope you like it! :)
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.
A design which uses two crosses in the counter shapes of most glyphs.
This started out as a pixel demake of "Refollte", but was then metamorphosed into another high-res design.
A semi connected script style font design. It is losely based in the lettering seen on a poster design by German designer/painter Ottomar Carl Joseph Anton. (image shown in comments)
I completed the full alphabet, I tried to incorporate the features from the provided letters the best I could while creating the remaining missing characters.
It is a semi connected script style lettering, so certain characters are deliboratly disconnect and some aren't. For example the Uppercase string is almost completelty disconnected, whereas most of the lowercase characters connect. This can also be seen in the original Ottomar poster.
For the lowercase characters that connect there has been made a alternative glyph that is disconnected and adjusted to make a more pleasing flow and better looking breaks. These are located in the Unicode Block “Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms”.
It contains both proportional oldstyle (default) & lining numerals, which are located in the Unicode Block “Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms” as well.
I hope you like it!
It took me so long damn it

This font has everything Zeph-y. Decolike shapes, half-arcs, procedural asymmetry, slight gaudiness, and an ampersand that looks like a priest with a cross walking on the ocean waves.
A slightly leafy engraving-style Decolike.
Version 1.3: Added Polish and started on Cyrillic.
Experimental polygonal superthick decolike.
This is my first blackletter font. I don't know much about blackletter if this is not so "gothic" please tell me.
Idk why but you know what i'll make russian
A semibold Gongclonker made to the same specs as the original - 5x5 with no wasted matrix.This is a clone of Gongclonker
ELEVATED - A large 3D outline shadow display typeface.
It's inspired by the lettering from a sketch of great Dutch graphical designer "Jurriaan Schrofer".
Very stressful assembly of bricks, I thought I would not finish it on time. Uff! Some glyphs are still expecting to be included in the font. WIP, and kerning.
A funky idea that started with the A and expanded from there. Most letters are drawn by a single line winding around, although some are just not willing to follow this mantra. I found this half-finished while scrolling through my private FontStructions, looking for ideas for the CounterComp, and decided it was already an interesting entry :-)
There's an alternate, narrow set of numbers that can be reached with Shift+number (on a QWERTY, Dvorak, etc. layout); not sure which set fits the style better. Suggestions and critiques welcome for anything, and feel free to clone and poke around with it. Thanks and enjoy!
Impossible geometric letters, inspired by who other than M.C. Escher.
Uppercase letters and partial punctuations only.
Enjoy!This is a clone
The idea is to represent counters with arrows. Letters with closed counters (e.g. D,P ) were first opened and only afterwards were represented by arrows.
042718. Thor Ragnarok is the funniest of all the Marvel films. I can watch it over and over. There is so much respect for Jack Kirby’s art style all over land of Sakaar. Growing up I never really appreciated Kirby’s artwork, as I leaned toward more graphically detailed artists. It wasn’t until much later that I recognized his great contributions to the entire language of visual expression in sequential art. I’m sorry I didn’t create this for the opening, but here it is for Avengers Infinity War.
