Spinning Counterclockwise by sirkles Spinning Counterclockwise by sirkles
I was commissioned to write what the girl says in this [link] . Since I did a lot of crazy stuff with my letters, words, and phrasing, here is a [link] to a letter by letter translation.

Here is a [link] to the colord copy, and here is a [link] to all five of my sketches...

I really like that it doesn't strictly follow the "rules" of how sentences are laid out. I imagine that this is what Gallifreyan poetry might look like.

As Timothy said, it's not quite accurate according to Sherman's CG rules but I think it is absolutely perfect for exemplifying the quote you were given and if you are going to be wibbly-wobbly with any rules, it makes sense that they be Time Lord rules!
(I'm not too good at CG but my son is having a "Steampunk TARDIS" theme for his bedroom, so I've been thinking of using it myself, writing positive affirmations and quotes in "strategic" places, and I found your piece reasonably easy to follow, after seeing the original quote, so well done.)

Well according to Sherman's rules for Gallifreyan, sentences are arranged in a loosely left-to-right manner, but I love the way this looks!

Actually, It would be organized into "phrase" circles going counterclockwise spiralling inwards like this [link] wonderful piece of gallifreyan written by MNEman13

Quoting directly from the official Sherman PDF:
Sentences are connected by "overlaying" one sentence on top of another, making use of the divots in the inner word circle. These chains are read from left to right.

Oooh, I love it... spent some time translating it (I am still fairly new to CG), good fun! I really like how you've wrote some of the words, especially 'little' in the second to last circle, and the thing with the two circles in the middle is really nice :D

I think it is beautifully done. I agree with the spacey look because of all the crescent moons and such. It also has an alien flavor to it.

Well yeah, time lords are pretty alien...
