A written court language used by Ashrians on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for public court documents, and its brother language Calystiphos Hand is used for private documents and old government records.
These glyphs could be considered a form of shorthand unto themselves, since each court stenographer has its own way of writing these down and its own way of abbreviating or embellishing them. Through knowledge of these glyphs, and their accompanying interpretation, one can surmise all of the important proceedings and notes.
Common methods for stenographers to alter these glyphs involve:
- Adding/removing quadrants
- Crossing out one or more elements in colored ink
- Drawing connecting lines between points within one or more quadrants
- Inscribing shorthand or marginalia within negative spaces
- Marking or coloring within the central circle
- Shading via different means (scribbling, crosshatching, or with colors)
- Rotating a quadrant upon its own axis
It's important to note that stenographers also often write (either in Royal Bysoncian, Sea Bysoncian or Voktlandish) in accompaniment with these symbols. The idea is for each stenographer to come up with a system of encoding that works for it. Eudastiphos Hand could thus be considered an amalgamate, interlingual cipher built from other Ashrian languages.
In terms of communication systems which exist on Earth, this is most readily compared to Nsibidi.
Continuing on the theme of choosing a regular shape and making an alphabet out of it.
Looks best at smaller sizes (<24pt) and with antialiasing/ClearType turned on.
Can this be done better with filters? Probably, but I still have to learn those... :D
An attempt to make low-resolution, circled letters without the use of filters. Reminds me of branding irons or stencils. The name is based on a friend's joke about lost marbles. :^)
TIP: This one looks best at smaller sizes (24pt or less) and with antialiasing/ClearType turned on!
Listening to cricket matches I saw a lot of trajectories in my mind when commentators discussed the balls' flight paths and where they landed, of some incredible bowling.
What a great inspiration for my first entry for the ReverseComp.
Maximum rectangle size is 16x20. The LC contains the flipped reversed UC.
I see many white-in-black designs coming in, I'm adding to them as we don't see this type very often ;)
I think that I managed to give the "impression" of those occasional graphics displayed in cricket, football, tennis and other ball-based sports (it might be hawk-eye linked) that show where balls have originated from or to predict/illustrate their continuation.
A blank space is on the underscore, a filled space on the space bar.
Numerals and very basic punctuation are done :)
this is a pixelated version of a font I previously handwrote that you can find here along all my other fonts
