Here is something I've been wanting to do for a long time: an Art Nouveau pixelfont. I kept saying that it's gonna take too much time and effort to create some elaborate shapes that are not meant to be pixel-drawn. Even now, I think I should add some anti-aliasing on the borders, but I left it as it is for the contest. So, let's start with the begining:

Reférences: all poster-reproductions I could find in my  Mucha album.
Alphabet: Capital letters French, with accents and ligatures.
Palette 4 colors + background=5

Thanks Peach. I'm glad.

@Rooster - I think you wanted to ask if he was Polish?  I've looked at your profile :p  (elementary, my dear  Watson...)  He was Czech, I think....

Is Alphonse Mucha Pole?

Noted. Thanx for the comment. I'm working on that 4 and on a AA solution. I'll post update as soon as possible. Cheers

I looooooove  Mucha! This is awesome.  I agree though, it could use a tad of inner AA, no outer AA.  You don't have to blur the hell out of the lines, but just smooth out  the bigger curves a bit - a subtle change can make a huge difference.    The A is my favorite!   And I agree about the 4 too, it looks rather sloppy, not really hitting the style imo.

But overall it looks really cool!

@Souly   - Just like that. I didn't like the capital H... And it's a little less boring to have a character that brakes the rule of the series... the element of surprise é_è...

@Wolverine - Right. I agree. inner and outer, around the highlights. But not for this contest. I allready started to apply AA on the first letters, to see how it's best. It adds 2 colors (the third is the background color) and it works allmost fine... the fine lines become a little bit blurry. I'll post the result on DA, probably, in a few days, if I don't fall in love w this crispy look

@Ndsfreak - thanks ^_^'

Well, you have my vote. This is awesome.

Some inner AA would be nice.  The letters themselves look fine mostly.  The 4 looks more like a S to me though.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/3/2008 08:33
Why is the H lowercase?

Irozumi Urado (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/3/2008 07:47
Hehehe! "Annguis in herba" means serpent in the grass in Latin (when using this type of font, one can look also a taunt snobbish and debonair, just to get synchronized with the writing ^_^'
It's a little bit big, I know... (some will say "WAR" headlines) but it's for titles and I didn't even want to try making it smaller... See ya!
