Parroty by Torotix Parroty by Torotix
This is what I've been spending my week on. Debating whether or not to make it into a usable downloadable font.

Edit: Thanks for featuring my work as a DD!
If anyone knows how I can actually turn this into a working font, please let me know D: I have all the vectors and things, I'm just not sure how to go about converting them, thank you~

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-10
Parroty by =Torotix is a fun and cute alphabet, visualized with parrots. ( Featured by pica-ae )
:iconlusterdust:
What a creative way to make a font! This isn't something I'd normally expect to see in a Daily Deviation, so it easily caught my eye. I could read the text quickly, meaning it's not difficult to see what letters each bird represents. And since this phrase contains every letter of the alphabet, I can safely say every bird fits each letter very well. Well, almost. The only ones I had a little trouble distinguishing were your 'L' and your 'T' birds, mostly because the L bird's belly is round and curved and the T bird looks more like a 'V'. It's really nothing major though. If you wanted to refine it, I would make the T bird's wings more horizontal and put his head down lower. As for the L bird, I would try and decrease the size and roundness of the belly so it forms more of a vertical line. Other than those two relatively insignificant flaws, The way you chose to shape the birds was very interesting and efficient for the most part. I especially like your 'H' and 'J' bird, very adorable :D Colors are bright and fitting for each kind of parrot and the 'anatomy' (what gives away that they're parrots, basically) of each bird is transferred quite well into each letter. There is no mistaking it, these are parrots! Now that may seem like a stupid or obvious thing to say in a critique but some people might struggle in making each parrot letter look like... well, a parrot! Overall, this is very creative and I'd love to see it become an actual, usable font.
What do you think?

i like how you did that sentance, that has every letter, instead of doing the regualar 'a,b,c,d...' it makes it more visually attractive

It's the standard for fonts, whenever you download a font, this is the sentence you'll be met with before you click the install button. Also it was part of the brief to present it like this :) Ahaha Thanks though

Not sure I would use this as a font, but it would make for an excellent drop cap, or part of a pet shop logo! ;) Very awesome set!

Thank you! And yes, it's definitely not meant to be used as body text (I would be protesting against ANYONE using it for that purpose). It was developed for yes, a logo or a form of advertisement, I doubt a general article heading would work for this font unless carried out very carefully.

No... I just figured that because "the quick brown fox" is an alias of renards.

I dont see any reason to hate the guy, never met em

Ironically, not a single fox or dog was used as a letter and not a single parrot was mentioned in the sentence xD

"The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" is a sentence commonly used in font development, you'll notice this whenever you download a font, it's just the standard because it shows every letter in the alphabet - and it's a fun sentence :D

Thanks for the compliments ^^

My only criticism is: the "G" doesnt actually look like a "G". My only bad thought.

Because it's a lowercase G and I couldn't think of anything better unfortunately, I'd definitely change it if I thought of something better :P
