Obviously dedicated to the great Sergio Leone and his Spaghetti Western "Dollars Trilogy" filmed in Almería. The uppercase was shot. Contains some extra western dingbats, keep your head down.
The name "zashitnik" comes from the great "Luna" sci-fi trilogy by Ian McDonald (meaning fighter with knives hired for trials by combat, literally "defender").

This is my first FONTSTRUCTION! Not super pleased with it, but it was good for learning the interface. Feel free to comment! Thanks for viewing!
A surprisingly modern Western-themed type. Put pretty much every European language I could think of in here, therefore it's probably the most time-consuming one I've ever done.

Version 1.1: Improved several letters and numerals.
American frontier and western inspired display type.
Still needs a little bit of tweaking here and there. Also for some reason leading is not what it supose to be, it runs short a bit. But this is far from problematic.
5x5 pixel serif design with no wasted matrix AND no kerning! For a long time I didn't think such a design was possible, but here it is.
I began doing a serif font, and found that I really liked it when I rounded the corners off a bit. It makes it look rather cyberwestern. Have you ever played Wild Guns on the SNES? It's got that vibe about it.
Experimented as I usually do with a half-thickness version of the font which looked good enough to do the entire thing over.
Naturally this is more of a body text font than the default Gemini.This is a clone of Gemini
Just a Western font inspired by other Western fonts like "Bottoms" by rilencavy and "Western Calligraphic" by Wataru Aiso.
There are only a few characters in this font, and some of the punctuation might not be original.
A quirky Pseudostencil design with a central horizontal slot going through it. The "slot" is 1 brick tall for lowercase and 2 for uppercase, and becomes a vertical slot for numerals and certain symbols.
This is named for the cowboy and lasagna emojis. These were repeatedly added to then removed from several popular chat clients and websites. Changing emoji standardization or government conspiracy? YOU DECIDE.
An experimental slab-serif where the slabs are SQUARES and the crossbars are BONES. I'll add more to this one later.

A quaint and slightly whimsical serif doodle which quickly turned into something serious!
3x3 slab serif. This is based on Wallerton, Anachronistic Gunslinger, an IRC-based "TV show" which I used to write and produce. All the characters in the show were my AIs pretending they were cowboys.
Well, I managed to successfully produce a lowercase for this one!
Recommended: Use with kerning.
Experimental slab-serif. The added height from the serifs is quantized so that the serifs, rather than the normal lines, determine a glyph's geometry.
It reminds me of the Wild West and the old cartoon "The Jetsons" at the same time. It uses two kinds of serifs: normal slabs and "hangover" serifs. The hangovers are the ones that look like overhangs. Is there another name for them? I don't know.
This font is set to appear in several games at once! I'm not the developer of any of them! WOO
Despite what you may have heard, a "hoedown" is just a party.
A design made to have long legs. The mild optical illusion this font creates was a happy coincidence!
I changed the name to "Taller Tales" since it seems that many fonts called "Tall Tales" actually exist...
Original size: 40pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection, or use in combination with antialiasing)
