I have completed another font, but this one is especially important to me. This font is an "alternative universe" font where Han is force sensitive and the font reflects his relationship with the greatest spaceship ever - the Millennium Falcon! That being said, the saber is not perfect, but has a few quirks and such.
Here is my font description: This font was designed to be a "What if?" or alternative time line set in the time frame of Star Wars: A New Hope. In this time line, Han Solo is the son of Vader instead of Luke. Han receives his Graflex lightsaber from Obi-Wan Kenobi. In the tradition of Han's need to modify weapons and space craft, the saber has a few hiccups similar to the Falcon.
Sounds are from ANH lightsaber battles and have been modified to reflect Han, his personality, and his engineering skills. Some blaster sounds are from the falcon.
I initially started this font to be for an ancient Graflex saber that had seen better days and multiple battles. The more I worked on it, I started seeing Han as the owner of this saber. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
I have Plecter and NEC versions completed. I have NOTsubmitted this font to Saberfont.com yet as I am waiting for approval of other fonts. Let me know if you all are interested in the font and I'll submit it sooner than later.
Below is a demo video of the font. It does not contain all of the sounds in the font package.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
