Pixel Art Challenge: Numbers and Symbols


Numbers and symbols often end up as an afterthought when it comes to fonts. So, let's turn the tables and make some 'fonts' that exclusively feature numbers and symbols.

You must include all of the following characters:


You may optionally include other symbols, but any additional symbols must appear on the standard US keyboard layout. Do not include any letters though.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Min 4.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Ah, I thought this was to be a really cool challenge since at first I thought the idea was to make a scene where cartoon bubble dialogue or numerical signage in the scene was to include all those characters. But nay, 'tis just fontery.

What if one adds his signature using the font...will that be a DQ? :D

Yes, just the font alone You may submit a seperate piece later. But let's keep this focused on the typography.

So this should be JUST the font alone, and not be presented as a dialog box complete with a scene in the background? Because that would probably include letters with it, and have more to do with the scene than the font.
