critiques are very welcome. thanks, andrew
you're right, alternates make sense - especially when the uppercase is worked out (truly a frightening task) about the "t", I think it causes a negative space problem without the curl. like so: then again, maybe that could be solved by bringing the right sidebearing in by 1px. thanks, andrew
I'm planning three versions altogether: 1. a less ornate "italic" version 2. this "script" version 3. alternates & ligatures
Very nice! It has this old French smell to it. And the way you're dropping out pixels here and there is brilliant (and it's a great example of how bitmap and outline font design are totally different). Some suggestions: - I'd axe the last pixel on the ascenders of "b" and "h". - The new "f" is much better. - I don't get the stray pixels in "g" and "y". - I think the "k" and "z" are out of character. - The tick in the "o" is more hindrance than help, I think. - The UC "V" looks unhappy. BTW, it sounds like you won't be making a Roman. Could be interesting that way - but if so I'd definitely make a less rigid italic and I'd make it a two-pixel-stem design. At 15 PPEM it should work out OK, if you make the horizontals 1 pixel and keep it loose overall. But whatever you do, please do take this all the way! hhp

very nice Andrew. do you think you'd do alternates? for instance characters with more swash on the end?
the reason i asked this is i see some characters that might work better at the end of a line. for instance, the t seems to have too much curl on the end.
