Lumaro Preview by WurdBendur Lumaro Preview by WurdBendur
This is just the first preview version of a font I've been working on for a long time now, shown with an excerpt from my current NaNoWriMo novel. There are still a lot of glyphs I need to add, but I wanted to go ahead and put up what I have since I think it's still somewhat usable as it is, depending on your purpose. I'll update the deviation whenever I get around to this (which could be a while).

Lumaro is Esperanto and means "an array of lights" or "hiring sea" by some stretch. It's just a name I made up for no reason, but I thought it fit.

Come to think of it, the sea might make an awesome employer. I think I'd enjoy the job, anyway.

Feel free to use this font in deviations or whatever else, even commercially. Just please give me a link. Yes it says noncommercial, but that means the font itself. Don't sell it. I mean, it's not yours. But if you use it in something you create, that's a totally different thing. I'll probably write my own license soon.

Bitch! You stole my name. D:<
But I made this before you joined dA. Sorry anyway. :(

Very good, very vintage. A labour of love perhaps???

Looks very nice! I like the quite oldstyle look with the narrow capitals. Do you intend to expand this font with more weights and italics?
At one point I meant to do a while lot with this font, but I wasn't able to work on it for a while, and I practically forgot about it. Maybe I'll do something eventually.

You know, last time I commented I focused on the design of the uppercase but the lowercase letters are also unique. The short top serifs, the long curve in 'f', the more calligraphic 's', the top-heavy 'a'... I think it all creates a very nice texture and I suspect this will work very well at small sizes. One thing though, and I actually can't decide whether I like it or not. The characters h/m/n/u are too wide compared to other characters. The negative space is bigger than in letters like 'b'. I kinda like this versatility in the typeface though so I'm not sure it's bad practice.
I like it. It's beautiful.

Esperanto, NaNoWriMo, and a really neat font. :+fav:
