This is not a new release, but I want to show it to your consideration.

The S is heavily drunk and the R’s leg feels very stiff. M doesn’t stand comfortably either.

@J Weltin - Thanks for checking.

"The S is heavily drunk" - I understand what you mean, it's not very stable... agree ((
"the R’s leg feels very stiff" - I like it. ))) combined with the "K" & "N"
"M doesn’t stand comfortably" - not agree.

again - thanks ))))

Take a look at Michaelangelo by Zapf. The R loses the connection of the bowl with the main stem and it makes all the difference in the world (balance)
when compared to his solution in Optima.

Possible change? :-)

@typerror - Thanks )

Michaelangelo by Zapf has a more "handwritten" basis... It is more "humanistic"
I did not set the task of making the Capitalis Qudrata, I wanted to give "spirit" of classical Roman architecture.
My font have more elongated proportions, I also added a lower-case.

If the "R" is causing so much comment, I'm reviewing it. )))

"Possible change?" - changes are always possible )))
But likely they are be insignificant.
I repeat - I like the "power" of her leg.
"The R loses the connection of the bowl" - I like the idea, I'll try it. )))

First off, in response to Hrants comment on another thread... I am not trying to give this a calligraphic bent. I am merely talking balance. I think the R is off in Optima and it could have helped if the join was separated. PERIOD> Now back to the other thread where, once again Hrant has misconstrued what I said!

When did I say you were "trying to give this a calligraphic bent"?

This post is in the wrong forum.
Should be in Critique.

Also, many people are posting technical questions in General Discussions or Design, not Build where they belong.

I’m not a moderator BTW, but they are dropping the ball on this.
