This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here's the second part of my Simlish Handwriting Fonts with 10 more handwriting styles!
The first part is HERE.

In order, they are:
Backscratcher - A messy, scratchy font for anything from angsty teen diaries to tree-carved message
Kinda Bloxy - A not quite blocky, not quite boxy, squarish font
Lolliswirls - A fun, doodly font filled with spirals and swirls
Mai Ottograf - A script font inspired by Måns Grebäck's Autograf with fun little ending swashes
Marky Marker and the funky bunch - A font mimicking the handwriting of markers on a whiteboard
Ms. van Landingham - A font inspired by (and named after) the handwriting of my kindergarten teacher who wrote EVERYTHING like this
Passing Notes - My own handwriting (with a marker) in Simlish form
Ribbon Curls - A cutesy, swirly font inspired by various "modern" brush fonts without the brushy texture
Rough Draft - A jagged, sloppy font for bad handwriting with an extra helping of leaky pen
Young Author - A font replicating the charming hand of a wee author-to-be

The ~{Sample Text}~ at the bottom of the preview pics reads:

OMG, what the pl*m?! || 23 January 1992 || I <3 The Sims!
Franzilla quickly jots down her list of sixty-five bad pangrams.
A shy pink quail flew over the jinxed cyborg maze.
Cover Egyptian jukeboxes with frozen denim quilts.

NOTES
These are but plain, simple fonts.
- They will NOT affect the fonts in your game(s) simply by installing them.
- The Sims game(s) and/or expansion/game/stuff packs you have do NOT affect which fonts you can use. Heck, you could not have a single Sims game and still be able to download and use any of these. I'm not quite sure why you'd be on this site though.
- These fonts should be compatible with any program that allows the use of .ttf files. However, if you install them while said program is running, you might have to restart the program or refresh its font cache.
-You may have to adjust some kerning pairs. I'm still working on perfecting this!

Wow, these are so pretty - I can imagine a lot of storytellers going crazy about this. :D
I'm impressed of how the single letters form a perfectly smooth, authentic-looking text. They are also very expressive in style, they convey exactly what you intended. I also really like the presentation. Everything is so well and carefully put together!

This is all very nice and probably took forever to make. You are quite the typographer.
