Good work. It's coming along well.

1.Hate your "not def" character It makes my character map look like a tic tack toe game!

2.Your letters look terrific but I'd still recommend you resize 8, x, X to be consistent with the others -- at worst simply cut off the tops.

It is indeed an ugly not def glyph, and ugly it shall stay!

As for the out of whack x, X, 3 and 8; them's the pitfalls of making a typeface out of fixed pieces. You wouldn't snip bits off tangram would you? :wink:

Here's a link to the original that I based it on.

New version with position of question mark corrected, spacing of i loosened, T and L altered and kerning of alternative t included.
