    Default Embossing and Inking

    Now, there's no rules in the Font Play thread that there are any features in Xara one cannot use, right?

    You're just saying that your approach was 90% vector, with transparencies that are fractals (rendered as bitmaps but can by dynamically adjusted).

    I like what you did; this gives me an idea which I won't do.

    Does anyone think they can do a fontplay as a tattoo? Ink on fleshtones with pores and all that stuff?

    I think it would be an interesting challenge.

    Yep exactly right

    Hmmm a tattoo... I can think of a couple of different ways this might work but I am going to just think about it for now. In the meantime lets see if anyone else jumps in!

    Default Re: inspiration

    I have been inspired by our font play to play around with my logo for Good Morning Sunshine.
