Siddham was an indic script descended from the Brahmic script and the ancestor to modern Devanagari. It was used by Japanese buddhism to write sanskrit (and Pali, I guess), and is what you probably get when you see sanskrit written in magical spells and whatnot in anime. In Japanese, it is called bonji.

This is a blackletter-style derivative from Siddham, just because.

For my fantasy world Grundet: juhhmi.deviantart.com/gallery/…

The quick guide and terrible diphthong table.

edit1: Developed by the monks of ? for their sacred texts

edit2: The hexagonal script was constructed to be used with Rinapri during the Age of Coast Temples, and it survives only as the most sacred script with decorationally complex orthography, various writing direction combinations and secret messages opening for those with the Eye. Hexagonal texts cover walls of coast temples and spells are carved onto amulets.

This is one of my old attempts at creating a Finnish morphemic writing system. Basically, each Finnish morpheme would have had it's own grapheme. Yes, it's like Chinese or Japanese, except different in ways that's not important right now.

Hm, I even have a list here that I made at the time. This list should contain most Finnish bound morphemes: [link]

Story, قصّة, is absolutely central to humanity, yet our current culture is strangely divorced from the power of myth and storytelling, having drawn an artificial line between "what is real" and "what is imaginary", that to my mind strongly parallels the difference between language and dialect: "A language is a dialect with an army and a navy." In other words, the truth in stories is denied simply because we don't have the ability or willingness to see it.
Inspiration prompted by this passage:
"If a story is not born from the inner world it will lack the power to effect any real change. It will speak just to our conscious selves, the surface layer of our being, rather than engaging us from the depths. The stories of the past, the myths that shaped humanity, spoke to our individual and collective soul with the numinous and transformative power that comes from deep within. How many men have been called to battle by the archetype of the warrior or the hero? How many churches have been built on the foundation of the myth of redemption? The power of the archetypal, mythic world belongs to the river-beds of life that shape humanity." ~ Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Changing the Story

Jewish art

Final (one of) work of Calligraphy semestrial course I took in Bar Illan University.

In this course we have studied different styles of Hebrew fonts, 6 styles.

This one, in the form of which words are drawn, named: "כתב סת"ם" ('Stam' font)
The word is actually abbreviate of three words: "ספר תורה" - the old testament (Torah), "תפילין" - prayers book (T'filin) [link] , "מזוזות" - doorposts (mezuzot)[link] . Those words mean that those things are being written by this font, and additionally to the mentioned types also are written the five Megilot [link]

More about this font you can read in Hebrew link: [link] . (I was too lazy to work harder and find an English version) :P

I have written a word "שמחה" (Simha), which means Joy; how do I see it, understand and feel. (this choice is unusual and not traditional, as I think...)

I wanted to be original, almost all the rest have written a word: "מזרח" (mizrah), which means east.
I don't want to go into a long discussion of why they have chosen that word, those who would be interested can ask me individually by a comment or note. (I prefer comment)

I hope you like it, and that it makes you smile as well. :)

The idea is mine, design is mine, the art is mine.

Edit: my translation was not exact so I changed that from "happiness" to "joy". Thanks Street. :)

a few of the more common symbols I've been seeing. The one I do recognize is the alchemical symbol for 'spirit' - the first symbol on the third line.
