photodigital alphabet declination AB Blue Bird top fifth p E M J

This photodigital is the top of page five of my alphabet declination AB Blue Bird.  These drawings/writings start with the subject of Lipazzan.  Part of what I associate with that subject is the rider in uniform, the hats for military service or nationality.The uniform is too detailed for this size drawing and an package normal ink pen.  One mark of a Lipizzan is the breed signature trained moves.  I picked a jump with hind double kick. This does have the showings of alphabet declination.  I go to minimalizing and stroke continuity–A stroke used in communication should have a level looking the same, within the environment of the same circumstances.  My wavy lines should cross midland very near the same percentage of the point-to-point length every stroke-to have a standard.  Also, we can see I use different placements.  I’m going to say placements are areas or local area zones within the framework of the icon.-Ernie Moore Jr.

A letter of this sort should be complex enough to retain characteristics of the subject and designed to be duplicated within a few seconds for writing to be convenient.  It seems to be a balance of maximum that can be done soon enough.  This is My ceiling.- Ernie Moore Jr.

This goes from forelegs, aftlegs, tail; I adjust the tail lengthening and curving-then shortening almost to just being an extension of the body (which reduces number of strokes). Or lose the tail having only the legs connected by body.  I later incorporate a stroke to represent the horse head. Eventually there’s the rider.  Then all legs distinct with one curving stroke for head, body, And tail.  This is me thinking ahead.  Looking for a good form to lose parts while being a reasonable useful usable icon/figure. Doing a rearing horse or horse and rider gets me thinking of images I think of as Sanskrit.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Next set is Dolphin dorsal fin possibly pectoral, on to pectoral above water.  Interesting that I go to horse ear-which I think resembles a fin out of the water.-Ernie Moore Jr.

I have enough to pick or print my more settled thoughts.  The horse ear is the “A.”-Ernie Moore Jr

alphabet declination notes bottom of the fourth page E M J

I have mentioned alphabet declination, yet have not switched-out any of the English alphabet so far.  This is a continuation of dolphin.  It includes a mention that I felt I was not understanding dolphin form–to the level that I can present it/draw it like it looks as if it were real.  While I do not have details of dolphins I’m thinking I have generalities of their movings to advance with getting an icon.  Limbs become lines and I bring-in the surface of the water.  I like the look of the composite, however for me-this is not just typography–trying to get a single letter.  The point is to show a progression of each letter, from first representation through evolution/devolution of use.  I’m working with a dolphin flipping or diving.  I went from wave to taking the curve of the wave as the curve of a leaping~dolphin.

Here I make a note that I would like realism in the likenesses.  And if I am lacking in understanding, I should develop that area.  I go from unicorn to dolphin.  Focusing on the head in both cases.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Prior alphabet declinations could have less topics yet as many parts. Example:Ghost Hunting-one topic with several areas or aspects from which to choose icons.  Well, apparitions, locations and instrumentations.  All three of which can have multiple representations.-Ernie Moore Jr.

bottom half of first page ofalphabet declination A B Blue Bird E M J

This is a photodigital of the bottom of the first page of a work to make an alphabet based on prechosen subjects, objects, items.  The alphabet is called Blue Bird (AB Blue Bird)–Butterflies, Lipizzon, Unicorns, A warrior stance recognizable by an  Atari arcade game character in Gauntlet Legends-Blue Valkryie, Rainbows, Dolphins.  Using these subjects I had to pick an icon that would stand-in for the English letter “A.”  I picked horse’s ear.  But the ear by itself does not show the horse.  Going that direction, how much around the head do I show, that I can draw, but highlight the ear.  If the head comes into play I should have that understanding.  With that, I am here working on the understanding of the drawing of the head.  At the top is my studying dolphin shape.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Notes On Designing An Alphabet As If Used for Generations EMJ   Leave a comment

Blue-bird alphabet declintion top of first page E M J

Typography is a discipline of Graphic Design.  This might be my closest inlet to that claim aside from designing business (type) cards [more at pitch or selling myself/contact me cards] for work searching.  This is the top page of the first page of my notes for something I might call Alphabet Declination-a switch-out of the English alphabet for icons of ideas, topics, notions or or and objects or portions there-of-written in a progression to show changes in the writing of it favoring the trappings of great use as over generations.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Writing for an important note can vary from writing to record word for word what someone is saying.  In which case the writing is less big-trying to more fastly finish the letters to more quickly get to the next letters.  Ends of lines drag on beginnings of lines.  Curves straighten.  What was longer becomes shorter.  And except for typeset or fixed lettering there’s a morph.  Here pictures/icons become symbols–letters, yet related to the original subject/basis/framework of the alphabet.  [Note:I like how writing shortcutting seems to match speaking shortcuts an how a language in use changes or declines because of use.  In the languages progression it declines; I suppose since it starts out at how it should be there is only maintaining that or distortion.-Ernie Moore Jr.

This alphabet declination I’ll refer to as AB Blue Bird.  Blue Bird is close to my using the topic initials of Butterflies, Lipizzon, Unicorn, Horses, Pegasus, a signature pose of the Atari arcade game Gauntlet Legends’ character Blue Valkryie, Rainbows, Dolphins–BfLUPBv.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Still a work in progress from October 2012 it seems.  I’d like to finish this, which I might be able to work-out here as I present what I have so far so my thinking can be seen [Note: I like to look at thinkings].  I finised something for all the English letters.  And there is a model for my alphabet declinations, however, If you look into me you’ll see I use photography of accidental or discovered art and camera motion to get images within images.  From these I had hoped to find shapes reminiscent of representative figures/images/drawings/works I might study to improve my repertoire of drawing styles/tactics/techniques.-Ernie Moore Jr.

You see my lack of understanding of wings on a horse inhibits progress for developing a letter based on pegasus.  And a lack of ability to translate what I have of horses to paper inhibits letters based from horse or unicorn (though horse for unicorn is only head, neck and body-as the tail is lion and the legs are deer-again, my drawing and my database for these things.-Ernie Moore Jr.

I’ve done AB Declinations based from automobiles, rain, reading, and a gardening graphics design teacher.-Ernie Moore Jr.
