Making New Font for sale on Creative Market

My ambition is going global: from this post on, I’ll be writing in English. I have a simple plan in mind – it’s to document the creation of the new font for sale from ground-up. I expect it to be a long daunting 2 month task. If I blog about this – it will be easier for me to stay charged and my fellow designers (and buyers) will have a good insight into ‘font making kitchen”.
So far I have made 3 fonts for sale: Bodega Script, Barracuda Display and Austen. And now you will be watching me make my version of Chancery Script (Italic, Italian Cursive).

Supplies

I have a basic set of supplies:

– 2mm Leonardt 70 nib in Cretacolor Calligraph nib holder
– Black Calligraphy Ink also by Cretacolor
– Croquis Sketch Paper from Canson
– Adobe Illustrator
– Scanner

Making the first letter

Today I made an “a”. It took 4 pages of variants
I have chosen and digitized these three versions:

It might not be the final shapes. I might tweak them later on as I progress.

Stay tuned for updates!
