Making a font with certain programs (fontographer, font creator, anything that comes up when you google "font creation software", etc) is pretty straightforward: write out the alphabet, scan it in, split it up, arrange parts, rinse, repeat. I know of one font program that's open source (FontForge), but getting it to run involves setting up a cygwin environment, which would be another tutorial in itself.
* How to make your own font!
ditto on that. i tried this, but the tutorial i originally used went on to use the program fontographer, & i don't have that. is that necessary? or does someone else have a better method?
Personally, I think it'd be more worthwhile to just have a tutorial on how to letter by hand, even if it means lettering on a separate page and compositing in Photoshop.
Ok, well with that thinking, lettering by hand would be even more straight forward.
Write words on your page, and make sure people can read them.
Aha, but there is more to it then that!
A good tutorial isn't just instructions. It's tips and tricks from people who use the techniques everyday.
Thinks to look out for, things to avoid.
Also keeping in mind, people who are reading the tutorial might be brand new to the software or material,
so what might seem straight forward to some, could be confusing to others.
