Guys, Well, I’m not a professional and I’m stuck with this project. I can’t think of a descent numerals and “Z” character. Also, the “S” is pretty ugly (heh)…be cruel, but please — help me with some hints. Thanks
It seems like you’re trying to “cram” an even stroke through a rather low x-height with the “s”, and you would probably have to with the “z” also. What I would suggest is either cleverly play with angles or make the middle stroke’s weight thinner. Also, consider giving the “k” (and your to-be “z”) more-or-less straight diagonals, it’s okay to have some unique members in a set. Overall, this is a really neat style. What about that “a”? It looks a bit oﬀ… Good luck!
Hi Ivan, Some points: 1. Nice forms, maybe a bit too constructed for my taste. a: My opnion: Try to distinguish it a little more from the six. Give him the foot it needs i,j: stems should be same height k: perhaps give the upper arm an angle s: the spine is way to light as it is right now. But it’s overall too constructed. Get away from a ﬁxed witdh perhaps. Draw! t: make the horizontal stroke a little thinner u,y: too wide, should be a little more condensed than the n. x: too horizontal. make it a little more condensed For all joins (connection curve/stem): make the outline a little lighter there. You might even consider trapping. But I’m sure the man from the lambic valley will help you on this issue. This for the beginning. Servus Dominik
