Pixel Art / First Pixel Font/Art
« on: April 14, 2020, 04:27:22 pm »
Hi all,

I made my first pixel font and wanted to share it with you all. I also made some artwork to help market it which was it's own learning experience.

Aside from simply trying to market this thingI'm actually really curious about how pixel fonts get used in art and game development. Are true bitmap fonts a thing still or do you all use OTF/TTF formats and scale them appropriately?

I pretty much worked in a bubble while making this so I'd love to get some feedback from people familiar with this medium!

You can see some more examples and test it here https://nathanmetzler.com/jammer/

General Discussion / Pixel Font Formats / Techniques?
« on: April 12, 2020, 09:12:25 pm »
I design fonts and recently made one in pixel style. When it comes to actually using one in a game or art though I'm not sure what the process looks like or what types of files get used.

I made some promotional art for it in Photoshop and simply scaled my font down (from an OTF format) until it matched my pixel grid. Is this standard practice or are there more specific techniques that are used to make pixel fonts to align with pixel art?
