I am trying to identify the font in this picture:

Does anyone recognise it? I've tried Whatthefont!? (http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/) but that didn't work.

Oooh... found it. I just had to make the image black and white and then whatthefont!? worked it out.

It is ITC Bauhaus Medium for anyone wondering.

Could anyone identify the font in the screenshot here (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/51448814/?offset=25)? I would really appreciate it.

Looks like HandelGotD to me. It's a commercial font.

Yep, I have that font, its definately HandelGotD Lig... You CAN find that font if you do some googling, but it is a for pay font. Interestingly that font also gets used an aweful lot in movies and video games for its "futuristic" type look. There is also a version available with Serifs, it looks horrible though. Also make sure when using this font to set your font hinting to Slight and dont bother with sub-pixel rendering as it doesn't seem to work right.
