Hello,
I'm quite happy with what I achieved today, so I take liberty to post a work-in-progress (hope this is the right place, and you won't mind).
I don't know, I'd call it an 'egyptian', maybe bold?
I like the shape of 'q b d', which reminds me of a 'serif din'; and 'a' is no bad either. I wonder if I could better match the 'e o c' with the general style. Maybe force the uprightness of the p on the 'e o c' letters?
Of course, no metrics or kerning whatsoever.
Any suggestion welcome.

thank you very much
m.

Manard,
Take a look at your p h d b q and see if you feel the horizontal curves are too heavy, Compare this to your o and see if you think they should be closer in thickness.

Keep working__works in progress are welcomed.

"q":
- bottom serifs should be asymmetrical the other way.
- Make the ear like the spur of the "b".

"a": narrower.

It has a marlboro vibe to it. I like it anyway.

I think this is akin to what ChrisL said, but the bowls on b q p d, as well as the shoulders on h and u, seem to have a 'bump' in the curve. Almost a corner, in fact. Take a look at what Peter Karow called the 'bone effect' (2/3 down the page).
