Hi! I'm working on a serif typeface. I would like to hear your comments. I'm affraid with the relation of the lowercase and uppercase.
I really like that r. Don't care much for the head on the t, and the j sort of peters out towards the bottom. The s doesn't go with the rest of the characters very well.
It tastes a bit like palatino but I like this kind of modulation you used, I thik it is going to have a nice color in paragraph. Uppercase is still unbalanced and uneven in color, "A" has a good color.
some characters improvements: "a"; "t"; "s". Need too work a lot in the red ones.
Hi Ricardo The steams of the Uppercase looks diffrent in width. lc 'b': mmh.... I dont like the bottom curve... lc 'w' and 'v': maybe to gemetrical lc 'x': Great! But will it work in small size? I like the curves of the round glyphes! The tail of lc'y' maybe needs a point at the end (maybe also for 'j' 'f' and 'c') Greetings to you! Jens
Jens: what do you mean with "the tail of lc'y' maybe needs a point at the end (maybe also for 'j' 'f' and 'c')" it's already there...or am i i missing something? ;)
Sorry Ricardo, you are right, the comment was a little confusing :-) What i mean was that you maybe should do this point a little bigger. Currently it looks like that the downstroke goes in a little curve... The Uppercase is a first sketch i see so you improve anyway... Horizontal lines are very diffrent Compare lc 'E' and 'L' Happy fonting!
It's late, but i was playing around with some capitals
This roughly reminds me of Patria
i think you have serious problems with the curves. this characters show it. the: e, s, g, f, a, o and q, need a new and serious revision. http://www.typophile.com/forums/messages/29/6757.html?1077083089 here you can found tips about how you can trace your font. JP
