Title: 8x8 font
Post by: red_Marvin on October 15, 2004, 07:42:45 PM
Here's an 8x8 font i've drawn and tried to do some antialiasing
(totally 3 colors: orange, brown & black)
Image standard and 2x magnify, the symbols is for a program I
at least want to make...

(IF thepic.visible = FALSE THEN GOTO mysite)


C&C please.
Are the characters good? proportions etc?
Also is there any other colour combination than this that is better
for the eye to look at? (against a black background)[/img]

That's better than any 8x8 font I've ever seen in a QB program! The antialiasing really helps a lot.

I would take the opportunity to plug my font editor, but it's useless to you because it can't do color. What did you use for it?

I really like that font!  Great work!

Don't use freewebs... they suck.  Use something else.

(...) freewebs (...) suck (...)

Well I'm not all that creative so I don't have very much to publish,
(and freewebs looked good at the time -nice interface etc.)
but if you have a better suggestion, then I'm all ears :)


Thanks for the kind reply's ^_^

I would give you an alternative, but all my alternative links are on my laptop, and the adapter for it got fried last week. ;)  And i'd say i only have about 3 minutes battery life left on it.

red: the font is looking good. IMO green colored font would look even better. Humans can perceive more shades of green than any other color.
