INTERESTING USE OF 2x2 FILTERS! :)
Comment by anonymous-479865 27th May 2012
@demonics:
Thanks, I've added tag Ink
@micgio:
Thanks, most of my fontstructions use 2x2 filters, and I hope I'm not finished with this filter yet.

Balaqay (Балақай) means Dear Child in kazakh.

As usual, interesting modularity. "Balaqay" inspired me a brand new work, absolutely not modular, of course, you know me (maybe a future AFT, who knows?)
It surely still needs work, but this beginning is encouraging. I add a sample to this message to show you how it looks like for now.

@ Abneurone Fluid Types:

I'm already interested in J,K,N :) Keep me posted.
Thanks.

Sometimes i make experiments without real future, i would'nt give you false hopes. But it's also true that sometimes, months later, i come back to them and at last build a real and convincing font. This was the case with the recent Jabbering which finally found its definitive and right way more than a year and half after its first eclosion. We'll see...

@abneurone I like the O W in your sample.
Comment by demonics 28th May 2012
I've changed some glyphs, including D,E,F,G,M,W,k,w, 3,7 and some cyrillics, so it's more abstract now with more dots. Suggestions are still welcome, and don't forget to rate. Thx!

Very nice experimental work.
Comment by chr.s 29th May 2012
@Architaraz : Finally i fell in love with the shapes i shared with you in the sample above when they were at a rough stade. They have been seriously redesigned since this, almost any keeping its initial form. I worked hard to push this work to the highly demanding level standard of the AFT series. It's still in progress but AFT102 Cotillons has already a look of achievement.I Will add punctuation soon. During the process and particularly the lowercase development, another of your fonts (Happi) added a new inspiration. The font is dedicated to you. Hope you'll like it.
