I have started to work with font making via illustrator and have a question about serif typefaces.
Below is a serif I have started (the 'A' looking thing):
I tried playing around with the stroke width modifier tool. I also know from watching documentaries on typefaces that for the most part there are done with the pen tool around the edge of the object (in this case a letter). I was just wondering if it can be done with strokes.
Is it possible I can make the feet of my 'A' look like the one in the 'ABC' (font there is Times)? I have always wondered how to do this.
