A condensed "blackletterish" exercise. Oldstyle with modern FontStructed conformity. Works for short words in big sizes. HEAVILY inspired by the calligraphic fontworks of Bulgarian designers J Jelew and S Simow. One could say it´s more or less a FontStruct adaptation of their fine "Grant Deco", I have no problem with that. I wanted to see the "Grant" glyphs a little less "tall and hansome". ("Estoc" is an old type of long sword, similar to rapier or foil.)

Little experiment of mine, trying to design a script font that really connects all the letters. As you might guess from the quality of the uppercase, I started with lowercase and had quite some trouble finishing the uppercase... And I know there are (obviously) always the connection strokes peaking out at the end any word, but funnily this imperfect look has started to grow on me during the fontstructing.
I also know there are still lots and lots of inconsistencies and letters that badly need a rework, but I thought the constructive criticism of my fellow fonstructors might be more helpful and efficient at improving this... So I'm grateful for any suggestions!:)
Oh, and yes: The kerning is very painful at times, but I can't see how I can improve that under the constraints of the script and the character forms. And obviously the script thing doesn't work with uppercase only text.

This took me many, many hours of trying, learning, erasing and restarting. Especially the design of the caps was hard; sooo many possibilities! However, i'm proud to present you my first real blackletter font :) I would like to add some more glyphs to the "more latin" set, but the size seems to be close to the download limit. It's downloadable yet, but i had to erase some glyphs...
there's an alternate "a" on "@",
and some decorative stuff on "#" and "*".

*Still in progress!*
A pixely-medievaly sorta font.
I noticed that there were tons of 8-bit videogame-style fonts, and lots of old english fonts; so I thought, "I'm gonna combine them and see how it ends out!"
Constructive criticism is appreciated; let me know if anything looks wrong or too weird! (I know, the capital X looks really weird, I just couldn't get it to work for some reason.)
(Avádicus is just a fantasy name I made up. It sounds to me like the name of a mighty kingdom in an RPG.)
A kinda similar font is Pixular, by LexKominek.
