Really nice. I'm not sure about the s and the z, but I'm not sure what else you could do with them either.
Comment by aphoria 8th February 2009
Firstly thanks for the vote.
Secondly, I agree totally.
There's some other variations of 's' at the end of the preview screen. I even thought to have it dropping below the line. I said the same things to Kolarek about his fontstruct.

Here is Gigantica 2. This doesn't look as dramatic, but resolves the 's' & 'z' problem.
Comment by djnippa 8th February 2009
You're a quick one, djnippa. I like this expanded. I think you'd do well to drop the e, s, and z below the line at diagonal slants.
Comment by geneus1 10th February 2009
I'm not 100% sure what you mean. I've added the alternatives I did as follows:
%= s (large below line)
~= s (below line with diagonal)
|= s (small alternative on line)
\= s (45 degree kicker as Geneus1)
`= s (small alternative on line)
*= e (shallow diagonal kicker)
/= e (Shallow stubbed angle below line)
= z (Diagonal version)
Comment by djnippa 10th February 2009
The alts are good, but fully populating the descender grid space seems to add too much weight to the glyphs. I was thinking of something more like this:
Comment by geneus1 10th February 2009
Nice. I've added the alternatives you suggested:
'%'= s (large below line)
'~'= s (below line with diagonal)
'|'= s (small alternative on line)
'\'= s (45 degree kicker as Geneus1)
'`'= s (small alternative on line)
'}'= s (45 degree kicker stubbed
'*'= e (shallow diagonal kicker)
'/'= e (Shallow stubbed angle below line)
'Arrow Right' = e (geneus1 Version)
'Arrow Left'= z (Diagonal version)
'{'= z (Geneus1 version)
