Here is the second version of the Unlu script font.
This one has been called Unlu Light as it is significantly smaller than the original with cleaner lines and angles.
In addition to the Unlu v.1 letters and usage this version includes more punctuation and the numbers 0-9.
Vykra is a conlang script based on the concept of a syllabic alphabet and inspired by plants.
The upper case is the plant body, while the lowercase is the root. As such it is necessary to write this script in alternating case (AlTeRnAtInG CaSe) so as to place an upper and lower case letter together.
The full stop symbol is used for words consisting of one letter to provide a root.
I got this crazy idea that I wanted to create a script that looked like it had been created by tiny pastel horses (you're allowed to laugh). My inspiration comes from the Burmese script and a few other closely related ones that all kind of look like hoof prints stringed together at different angles.
There was just one problem: FontStruct doesn't do these circular letters. So I used FontStruct to create a prototype with mostly 5×5 and 7×5 letters to make the most out of the rounded corners.
Once satisfied I set out to find a bunch of tools to create "real" fonts. Inkscape and Fontforge looked like the perfect combination for a cheapskate like me. Designing the letters in Inkscape was easy since they consist of a few standard elements combined at different angles. These elements in turn mostly consist of circle sectors merged together. Fontforge on the other hand is a constant source of frustration. The constant crashes are the least of my problems. Paths that are imported will contain several errors that need to be fixed and however hard I try I can't seem to adjust widths and bearings in a way that makes sense.
Currently the script takes about 90% of its letters straight from Burmese while the vowels are more closely inspired by Shan. The script is used to write English phonetically and works as a not-really-an-abugida. There's no inherent vowel and it thus works more like Tolkien's Tengwar. Initial consonants are written as conjuncts while final consonants are mostly written as a linear sequence. The twelve vowels of RP have been merged into ten. There are two sets of vowel diacritics: the regular ones based on Shan and the overly cutesy ones consisting of hearts, gems and celestial bodies.
Todo: Thicker letters. Larger diacritics and increased distance. My own set of letters using the same basic components – possibly featural but probably not. Proper metrics. Kerning. Ligatures. Learn AAT and/or Graphite.
My attempt at making a Unown font where all the letters are consistent in size. This is original pixel art made using a high-res reference. It's made to be a nice-looking design, not to be 100% accurate to the games. Upper case is fully kerned.
"We Dunno" is an anagram for "Unowned".
Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Recommended: Use with kerning turned ON!
- NOTES -
Use lower case to get Modern Gryzildan and UPPER CASE for Royal Gryzildan. Hold Shift while typing numerals/symbols to get the Royal ones.
These scripts do not canonically appear together on any in-universe writing. Gryzil writing is always written entirely in one script or the other. But, feel free to use this as you wish.
- DESCRIPTION -
This font contains two scripts of the Gryzil, Brer Brah's people, who are from various video games and stories of mine. Gryzil are a sapient bear-people that live on/near beaches in the continent of Skina on planet Fyromr. They have dull greenish fur, can speak, read, write and use tools, walk bipedally, and have beer fermentation chambers for stomachs. They appear in ESOS, Trap Farmer Brer Brah, and Anime Girls vs. The Cavemen.
The written language of these creatures is designed to be without subtlety. Most of the subtlety of Gryzil communication is gestural. For instance, quotations do not exist in Gryzil writing. There can be a record that someone said something, but only when a Gryzil who heard it firsthand speaks of it is there understood to be a quotation - the rest is simply hearsay.
This font is made as an attempt to anglicize the Gryzildan language - not to write it natively. Hence, it has some resemblance to Latin. But in fact these symbols all represent different gestures as well as different rasping, stamping, growling, and ingressive sounds which are unknown within Earth humans' formalized language studies. Nonetheless, you can write authentic Gryzildan with this. Read the Chalcedony-Bound Manual found in any of the games in which Gryzildan is used.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
This, as the name suggests, is a cubic version of the script helix. This variation removes all curved lines and approached the script with a box look rather than the traditional helix twist effect.
This has the same letter/punctuation as other helix variations.
This is a calligraphic version of the Unlu script. It has all the basic latin letters
but only basic punctuation.
It is used as with the previous Unlu scripts. Enjoy!
This is a more angular and slightly calligraphic version of the helix script, giving it a more industrial or poster effect.
This is a conlang font based on the SIGIL panel script which can be found on the Omniglot Website. Unlike the inspiration this font is alphabetical.
Note on the script: The script is formed from consonant-vowel pairs. If a pair cannot be made in the order consonant-vowel then an underscore [_] should be used for the consonant or a hyphen [-] for a vowel.
Here is an extended version of my Atemayar Rigid Script. This script has taken me years to get to the point where it is. It is incomplete however I figured I would release it with the current list of characters that I have created. While I plan to complete it, it will be some time before this is achieved so please bear with me as life tends to get in the way sometimes.
I began this font August 31, 2017, and I'm releasing it 30 days short of its 2 year anniversary.
Based off the original alphabet of Atemayar Qelisayér featured on Omniglot created by Simon Halfdan Hvilshøj Andersen. Credit for all the original characters of this alphabet goes to him, as well as credit for inspiration. Some characters in this alphabet are wholly original to this font (most are not however), these are inspired wholly by the original Atemayar alphabet in one way or another.
I truly and sincerely hope you enjoy, this font is made for all to enjoy and to spread such a beautiful alphabet to be used for all languages and all writing systems. I love Atemayar more than any existing writing system, I take all my notes in it, and I wish that Simon Halfdan Hvilshøj Andersen's alphabet will be spread around the world and used by many.
The alphabets can be categorized into groups based on the following criteria:
- Pseudo-Atemayar: shares no letters with Atemayar, but appears similar
- Semi-Pseudo-Atemayar: shares a few characters with Atemayar, but overall still looks like its base alphabet and can't be read by Atemayar users
- Modified Atemayar: Follows all/most of the same letters as Atemayar, however has added or modified letters as well
- Classic Atemayar: Original Atemayar alphabet without change
The alphabets' classifications are as follows:
Basic Latin: Classic (except X, which is a ligature of K and S)
Punctuation (all except . , : ; ? ! ... " '): Modified
More Latin: Modified
Extended Latin B: Modified
Extended Latin A: Modified
Greek & Coptic: Modified
Arabic: Modified (reversed letters)
Devanagari: Modified (line above letters)
Hebrew: Modified (reversed letters) ***Incomplete***
Hangul: Pseudo ***Incomplete***
Bopomofo: Modified (dots above letters, ligatures)
Thai: Pseudo ***Incomplete***
Here is my Serif version of my Altrimaya alphabet. This alphabet is developed specifically for use with English and Kynaat (link can be found in comments). Unlike my Atemayar Extended font, this font only covers these following letters and currency symbols:
For English: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ$
For Kynaat: AÅÃÂBČDĎÐEĚFGĞHIJKLŁMNŇOØÕPRŘSŠTUÛVXYÝZŽ₮This is a clone of Altrimaya (Revised)
