like many pixel font junkies, i'm continually inspired by miguel hernandez. his fundamental typeface has been one of my favorites for years, and i have always wanted to try my hand at a character set that featured those fabulous peaks throughout the lowercase set.
so, i finally committed an evening to doing something about it, and katie is the result.
now, i know nothing of script typefaces. in fact, i have very little traditional type heritage knowledge. i just like creating the pixel letterforms. usually, not a problem.
now, it's a big problem, because i have NO idea where to start with the upper case.
i'm thinking the uppers will be very subdued compared to the lowers.
can anyone point me in a direction to follow?
also, i'm having trouble with the second half of the lc character set. they lean, where the rest are upright. i'm not sure there's much i can do about it though.
is the second version too "scripty" ?
