Thank you so much for your praise, OCTO!OCTO wrote:Lovely!
One thing you might consider: in your music example the Roman and Italic style don't appear to have same weight.
I would compensate the Italic style by being taller, also, in music as it is with your "f molto espressivo" - I tend to have larger texting, if your is 12 pt, than try 13 pt - OR, make 12 pt to look like 13 pt.
I would definitely like to try the text in my scores when it is completed. Great job and really beautiful!
You'll get the chance to try them, no doubt.
Your comment about the comparative italic and roman weights is interesting. I've really struggled to make the weight of those exactly the same. This is, however, contrary to common practice, as the italic style almost always is slightly thinner than the roman in conventional text fonts. With that in mind, if anything, I would expect you to perceive the roman style too be too thin compared to the italic, not the other way around. Do you still feel the italic style is too thin in the screenshot of the basic characters above?
With regard to point sizes: both 'sul tasto' and 'molto espressivo' are 13 pt. already. The fonts are a little bit higher than Times New Roman, so this should be pretty standard. If you prefer the italic to be a point or two larger than the roman, that's of course possible, but the weights then won't be even (according to my estimation) anymore. But perhaps you'd prefer the roman to be a little bit taller as well, in which case, I can try both at 14 pt. for example?
Here's a close up of all styles, with both roman and italic text increased to 14 pt:
