    Based on the only imagery I've seen of the full alphabet, I finally went ahead and drew A-Z in capitals only.

    Are you planning on turning this is into a commercial font file?

    @matt yow I know nothing about making font files, so probably not?

    It looks great. However, is it me, or does this look really close to Lithos Pro Black? http://www.identifont.com/samples/adobe/LithosProBlack.gif

    I just think it's a little too close for comfort, that's all.

    @Nikita Prokhorov If you're uncomfortable with fonts that look like other fonts, I suggest you never install one ever in your life. For example. Have you ever seen Johnston and Gill Sans? What about Neue Haas Grotesk and Helvetica?

    @Louie Mantia , you're a funny guy. I was merely making an observation. ;)

    @Nikita Prokhorov I guess what I'm getting at is in the huge landscape of fonts, these two look less alike than many others.

    Also, if I could put a nail in this coffin, Lithos is stylized as Greek. This is stylized as a cartoon. And if you can't distinguish that stylistic difference, then I'm unsure what to say.
