It's been a while since I've put a free font out there! Just in time for Halloween, here's Skellyman (named after a mangling of "skeleton" used in my favorite video game, Borderlands 2).

It may be free, but that doesn't mean it's light. Skellyman contains over 660 characters, including over 200 accented characters, and full alphabets in Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic. Make no bones about it -- this is a meaty font!

But this isn't just for Halloween -- you could also use this font for any and all pirate-based projects. Because pirates are awesome! It's also good for biology teachers, natural history museums, butchers . . . really, anyone who likes bones!

The ZIP file includes Skellyman in both TTF and OTF formats, as well as a PNG and SVG file of the skull I drew for the promo.

Also: Skellyman is totally free for personal AND commercial use!
Text effect achieved with white highlights drawn down the center of the bones with Gaussian blur applied, and black shadows drawn next to the bone with manual blur applied/opacity reduced.
