Experimenting with a new letter concept. This is not the final concept of course, but I developed this along the way, so I kept it.
For best results, use upper and lower case on seperate layers, then merge them together.
A simple 16x16 terrain tileset. This is designed to work in color AND in monochrome.
In making this, I condensed all known biomes (terrestrial, aquatic, air, space, manmade, transitional) into 26 tiles. This allows a given tile to define multiple different types of areas/terrain, and it allows you to come up with your own meanings for these tiles, rather than having to memorize a legend. Some of the tiles are obvious and some are not; this is by design.
A-Z, a-z = terrain
0-9, 0-9+SHIFT = map borders/frame

Are you a <s>blind</s> bad enough dude to read the Esperhand?This is a clone of Esperhand
A dark/semibold Esperhand. Funky! A lot of glyphs had to be adjusted to make this work.This is a clone
A pixel font which combines four experimental techniques at once:
1. Structurally disconnecting the stems from the open parts of letters.
2. Allowing glyphs to extend beyond the reaches of width and starting position.
3. Designing glyphs specifically to connect and form new shapes, rather than simply allowing shapes to emerge from existing characteristics.
4. Designing glyphs so that the overall font is free of a need for kerning.
Alternates are now on UPPER CASE. I'll continue to update this as I get more ideas!

I took the line width variation of Art Deco fonts and turned it 90 degrees to create something bottom-heavy. The result looks really technological and reminds me of 1980s PC microsystems like the Sharp x86000, BBC Micro, Dragon32, and so on.
By request, "a font that looks like a hybrid of Greek and Latin".
This is designed to be modular. UPPER CASE contains the standard glyphs. Alternates are on the lowercase as well as the More Latin band.
"Novus Graecorum" means "The New Greek".
Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
Two fonts used in the game Naively. Only the original character sets have been included.
- NOTES -
Use lower case to get Modern Gryzildan and UPPER CASE for Royal Gryzildan. Hold Shift while typing numerals/symbols to get the Royal ones.
These scripts do not canonically appear together on any in-universe writing. Gryzil writing is always written entirely in one script or the other. But, feel free to use this as you wish.
- DESCRIPTION -
This font contains two scripts of the Gryzil, Brer Brah's people, who are from various video games and stories of mine. Gryzil are a sapient bear-people that live on/near beaches in the continent of Skina on planet Fyromr. They have dull greenish fur, can speak, read, write and use tools, walk bipedally, and have beer fermentation chambers for stomachs. They appear in ESOS, Trap Farmer Brer Brah, and Anime Girls vs. The Cavemen.
The written language of these creatures is designed to be without subtlety. Most of the subtlety of Gryzil communication is gestural. For instance, quotations do not exist in Gryzil writing. There can be a record that someone said something, but only when a Gryzil who heard it firsthand speaks of it is there understood to be a quotation - the rest is simply hearsay.
This font is made as an attempt to anglicize the Gryzildan language - not to write it natively. Hence, it has some resemblance to Latin. But in fact these symbols all represent different gestures as well as different rasping, stamping, growling, and ingressive sounds which are unknown within Earth humans' formalized language studies. Nonetheless, you can write authentic Gryzildan with this. Read the Chalcedony-Bound Manual found in any of the games in which Gryzildan is used.

I made a blocky, industrial sort of style, then added art deco-style line width variation. Then, a couple of tech lines here, a couple of details there, and SHAZAM! We get these 1950's-era raygun-toting space race zippity zap letters. It's a font Marvin the Martian might use...

A pixel font made to look like fire! Now you can answer (and ask!) your burning questions...
Drawing and editing these takes more time and effort than most other forms of pixel art. Don't expect them to look perfect without some time and effort from YOU, as well. An effect like this requires hand adjustment of every part at every stage.
The coloring, infill color, and effects you use with this font make a drastic difference as to what looks are evoked by its shapes! Scroll down for lots of examples. :^)
Alternates on lowercase!

A design built on two lines which cross each other. Makes me think of an ornate wood carving script.
Alternates on uppercase (lowercase is the original design).

Welcome to Tridisaster. It's ALL TRIANGLES, ALL THE TIME. Welcome to Triangle Channel.
Mathematical operators have a distinctive "open" look to help set them apart. There are few exceptions (like ^) because these symbols are used in many non-math contexts.
The only one I'm not sure about at this point is the comma, which works fine for my purposes, but probably makes this font a pain for anyone who tries to read/write at length with it. XD
All Basic Latin is kerned for both cases! Use a mixed case to create weird alien scaffolding! Inverted ",." can be found on "µ¶".

11x11 version of Illuminated Flamingo. Made to achieve a hybrid look between Derpberd Condensed and Gremlin 3x6, allowing this to be used with a greater range of microfont styles.This is a clone of Derpberd Illuminated 12x12
A 12x12 pixel font designed for use alongside microfonts, especially the "Derpberd" family it's modeled after. These large letters help decorate the start of a new chapter in a manner similar to the art fonts of illuminated manuscripts. I think this makes a decent "high-tech" or "board game" font, too! :D
Alternate style on lowercase (alternate ,.!? are on <>/~). The symbols and numerals have a slightly altered frame to help differentiate them and add some flavor.
I designed this 16x16 pixel font to facilitate texturing and dithering for pixel artists. Not every piece of art software has tools designed for texturing/dithering, and loading lots of custom brushes for the purpose can slow one's software way down as well. This font was made to attempt to solve these problems. Now you can dither, shade, and texture by typing! Every glyph repeats as a seamless texture both horizontally and vertically.
The name comes from my emulator/game, "Virtua Gremlin". Although these patterns weren't in the game (it used 9x9 tiles, not 16x16), many of the patterns here are based on that earlier work. "Skins" is a reference to graphical skins, of course. :D
A-Z = textures
a-z = dithering/shading patterns
0-9 = scanlines
The rest is sort of a mishmash... I'll organize it better once I have enough glyphs to warrant a good classification system...
Have an idea for a pattern? Want to see a particular sprite or aesthetic included? Let me know :D

Tip: View this in the Character Map so you can more easily grab and paste glyphs when designing!
