*** I am re-uploading this as there was an error in the original deviation listing and I couldn't fix it--so I had to delete it. Sorry about spamming you, but the first time this deviation wasn't showing up in most people's in-boxes. ***
This is my "official" entry to *BANGDK's semi-monthly contest. The theme is "The Wild West." Originally, I had planned to do a pixel doll, but I was very uninspired with the idea of creating a cowboy/cowgirl doll. Then it hit me. I have been wanting to do a Western pixel font, so this was a good excuse to do so.
The font design is totally mine. I tried to be as close as I could to the font type, but did have to take some liberties. It was quite a challenge since Western text is quite ornamented and it was difficult translating that to small pixel.
Since several of the characters would probably not be used with this font (such a curly brackets and @ sign), I decided to replace them with some Western-theme dingbats. There is a horseshoe, Sheriff's star, cactus, steer head, cowboy hat, boot, and guns.
The black-hatted smiley used in the preview Wanted Sign can be found in my Scraps.

This font is free-use. You don't have to link back to this page if you use it, but it would be polite if you did. Also, I love to see how people use my resources and I'll add the deviation to my special folder.
This is a full font set, including all basic symbols/punctuation. The zip file includes the fonts, a readme file, plus a copy of the graphic above so you can see the full set, as well as a full character list. When using a graphics program, this font works best at 6pts (8px).
This font is free use for personal and commercial projects. Commercial use does have some limitations. Please see [link] (this page) for terms and more details.
Hey there, this is a great font and as a matter of fact, I want to use it with a free online card game I'm developing ([link]). Unfortunately there is a small issue that prevents me from doing so. The letters in the font seem to be out of proportion to what is normally used in every other font, which means that the game engine I'm using displays everthing really HUGE.
Here's a comparison between bitmap-western and Déjà vu Sans: [link]
It seems that your font sizes are about 4 sizes larger than the normal ones (Your size 8, corresponds to other fonts' size 12 etc).
If it wouldn't be a huge effort, would it be possible for you to resize your font to be similar to the size of other fonts'? I'll understand if you won't bother, but it never hurts to ask.
Thanks, I really appreciate you taking a look. It seems that I won't require you to resize it after all as the engine was improved to modify font size now, so I just use yours at size 8 .
There's a small problem I wanted to mention. Your pixel fonts (I tried also the horror one) crash the engine itself and I think it may be because of some errors in the fonts themselves. When checking for problems with the font factory, it gives me a lot of errors about self-intersecting glyphs, among a lot of other warnings.
I worked around this by re-exporting the font with Font Factory and it now works for me, so I can work with it as-is, but I thought I'd let you know just in case
Here's a sample of how it will look in game: [link] Your font is at the chat window on the bottom.
Thanks a lot for this great job and I'll make sure to give credit and suggest your fonts for others as well
Sadly, the errors don't surprise me, actually. I can't afford a high-end font program. I have an adequate program that was within my price range, but it is very buggy. I have had to do similarly, importing my font into some other (free) software packages to fix errors and glyph issues. But, again, without a high-price commercial package, I'm limited. Perhaps one day I'll be able to.
Anyhow, I was very excited to hear you were able to work with it. The fonts looks great. What is your game and is it live yet? When it is, I will certainly pimp it out on dA. If you don't mind, I would like to post the screenshot in an upcoming journal to show-off the usage, with your permission and credit, of course.
Absolutely welcome to do so. Yes, the game is live (has been for a year now) but it's only relevant to people with my obscure interests. It's a virtual version of a defunct tabletop card game
Here, I took a full screenshot for you from the version 3.0.6 [link] but you're also welcome to cut/crop it as you wish, or to even install the game+engine and take your own screenshots. Game forum (with all necessary files) is here: [link] Engine is here: [link]
