Vertically connected alphabet


Recommended Posts

I'm posting this here, because I'm lacking the stamina to handle a formal thread. So consider this a rhetorical question-or-comment, and if anyone here is in the mood to beautify it, so much the better.. If you can believe it, the below wimpy combo took me hours resulting in a severe migraine (usually the case when I try cranking out graphics).

 

At worst case, if nobody can fix it, I guess I'll wind up using it in its current ughy form.

 

To the point - I designed a logo for an idea I have.

It involved connecting 2 alpha letters vertically (vs. horizontally, as in the case of alpha-script)

 

The below fd combo is the initial letters of my actual logo.

I cranked it out on pencil/paper, due to insufficient Nodes.

Then I used my digi-camera, then the Paint.Net Eraser painstakingly.

 

The remainder of the below logo is just a demo for purposes of this post.

(BTW during cranking out the inally, I couldn't find a font mimicking a sloppy grafitti scrawl.

 

As you can see, the f is quite ugly, so if anyone's an expert at fixing something like that, I'd consider it a windfall.

I'm most comfortable with Advocates of Transparent RepairCare (vs. Stealthcare) no matter their graphic expertise.

Hi, xod, while yours is very pretty, is there anything closer to my own design for the fd-combo,
....except with the f made more pretty?

Because I'd prefer it to match up with the rest of my logo (which is already incorporated with a picture)

 

I should also clarify that it would be used as a LARGE POSTER so needs to be HEAVY.

Unfortunately I can't seem to get Windows photo printer to set it up as 11x14 and print on two 8x11's.

As of now, my -f- looks sorta like a coat hanger because I can't leverage the curves the way I want them due to having had insufficient Nodes to work with (which then caused me to resort to pencil & paper, followed by digicam & Eraser-tool.
 
BTW, though this is not really relevant, (since its a Demo) - the demo was intended as a cute sign to hang up at a diner, or on a dining room door.
Made to look as if a prankster crossed out the E and inserted ALLY instead - to poke fun at the non-punctuality of served meals.
AGAIN - ONLY THE "FD" COMBO IS RELEVANT TO MY ACTUAL LOGO.
the INALLY INING is not relevant.

This topic is better suited to the paint.net Discussion & Questions section. I'll move it there.

You can use multiple layers and multiple lines in own layers. You get multiple nodes to work with. The letter is made in several parts with small lines.

 

You can see my signature here that is made in the same way.

xod, regarding the multiple layers, I'm far from expert, so its hard for me to visualize how to achieve curves over an extended area without seeing an animation of someone connecting several Layers containing fdcomposites.

 

Some people are talented at tinkering, and acquiring experience that way, but tinkering takes me forever.

 

(speak of composites, I similarly wish the Windows Wizard enabled Printing 2 composites of my FD logo

to achieve an 11x14 poster

versus a wimpy 8x11 poster

 

It all about finding the correct font and mixtures of!  This is what I came up with:

Pixey, is the upper & lower part of the Cygnet f able to be manipulated somehow into more rounded curves?

Also is the Cygnet f able to be thickened?

Where are Cygnet & Forte & Calibri located? I don't see them in paint.net 3.5.11 which I have (Win XP here)

Are there no fonts which are thicker, and with a more curved f??

 

Now for a stupid question:

I don't suppose there's a set of Vertically-tiled Script Fonts

(just as there's  the Horizontally-Tiled Script font (which connect with each other precisely.

 

P.S. I guess I'll take further suggestions "off-the-air" so to speak (as mentioned in my O.P. which had been posted on Grand-Theory. Thanks for all the input!
