One of my favorite quotes from Doctor Who, translated into Gallifreyan:
"I am and always will be the optimist; the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams."
(The Eleventh Doctor)
This took FOR-EV-ER.

I am not sure how to read this. I see this:

"blempovvi dremte the rhope fo ngfarflun ashope dan the rejed..."

it seems that a main problem is the beginning of each word.

Sherman's circular gallifreyan- there are two layers in this though so you have to read it in a sort of spiral.  Also this is one of the first ones I ever did so it's kinda crap...

the multiple layer didn't trip me up but the first word of that translates to blempotti not i

Seems it has a wrong angle. It's nonsense if you read it from bottom, but it makes sense if you read it from right angle.

you know what i always thought.....? Either Gallifreyan's were EXTREMELY good at freehanding lots and lots of perfect circles..... or they just RARELY used paper.... because i doubt they would sit and use a circle stencil like i do when i write out Gallifreyan.... cause I like to think I can make pretty steady strokes, and pretty smooth circles, but god damn it!!! it's still not pretty enough when I do it freehand!!!! Mad skills them Time Lords had..... MAD SKILLS BRO!!!!!

well, it is their way of writing.
If the circular writing had been your main script your whole life, you'd probably bring freehanding circles to perfection as well by now. :P

i'd be jealous of their freehand circles...... I can do it.... most days... but i doubt i'd be consistent.

Love, Love, LOVE!!! This is absolutely AMAZING! You did a fantastic job! That's on of my favourite quotes too. Along with, "Bow ties are cool." and "The way I see it, life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant. And we definitely added to his pile of good things." That was absolutely brilliant. And sad. I cryed. But anyway, I'm getting distracted. Your art is amazing! :) Just wanted to say that. :)

Hi Mallalory!

I fell in love with the quote and the amazing details in the Gallifreyan. I wanted to ask you if I could use it as a background on our wedding invitations? :love:

You certainly may! I'd love to see the finished work when they're done, if you'd be so kind. :)

A guide to the language I found online, a compass, a ruler, pencils and sharpies, and LOTS of patience. :D
