alphabet declination A B Blue Bird E M J notes bottom of thirteenth page

Photodigital Image Capture of notes of alphabet declination AB Blue Bird bottom of the thirteenth page EMJ.  This has me working the subject butterflies into the declination.  How much of the shapes of butterflies should I use.  Enough to have the shape be recognizable.  There’s double wings, antennae and two part body.  I’m seeing how I can include the most while flow through the form can be close to fluid.  The butterfly will represent the English Letters “F” and “G.”-Ernie Moore Jr.

photodigital of notes alphabet declination A B Blue Bird E M J

This photodigital Image Capture of the bottom of the twelfth page of the alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ.  Moving from studying drawing horse perspectives to a female warrior character from an arcade game–Gauntlet Legends from Atari (Not French owned).  It has elements of that character but elements from that type of character.  I draw what detail I can recall versus going back to the game and studying it.   The details if any were significant, fall away to the minimization I need for designing what would be a used letter in writing.  I look at sword held high, armored skirt and long shield primarily.  Also we can see my most recent~ assignment of subject to letters.  A,E,F,G,H,I–Horse; B,C,D–Dolphin; J,K,L–Lipizzan;M,N,O,P–Pegasus;Q,R–Rainbow;S,T,U,V,W,–Unicorn;X,Y,Z–Blue Valkryie~.  I just noticed that for most of these assignments, The subject has its initial in the letter group.  I wonder if that was intentional. [Butterflies will need to be included so the assignments will have to be reworked].-Ernie Moore Jr.

alphabet declination notes A B Blue Bird E M J notes drawings of horse E M J

This photodigital Image Capture is of an alphabet declination AB Blue Bird.  Oddly my photography and my paintings stem from an interest in drawing realistically. Taking how lines are applied elsewhere or reality I
might database lines or structure to improve the breadth of my drawing.  I thought my going from form to restriction of form could be an interesting journey, viewers, admirers, patrons[(the sounds of)crickets chirping]…that’s my sell point, I’m developing [akin to a photograph?].  If I improve-then you can share in my success, by being there with me.  But as I learn the worlds in which I study, I might be making Continents.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Here’s me studying my understanding-comprehension of horse, to design forms/icons/letter characters.  (No words)-whatever you get out of whatever.-Ernie Moore Jr.

alphabet declination AB Blue Bird bottom of page nine E M J

This photodigital is an Image Capture of the alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ, bottom of page nine–“F.”I have Icons use the same subject.  Some of these seem a search for an alphabet as opposed to an alphabet declination.  When   I got there and realized that my free-form could not be done with their tools I realized I could make a font for printing I had high hopes.  I used part of the methodology to come-up with this font– http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/803484 .

This is the above, less the webaddress.

SO I would like a one alphabet, yet would work it in the end for alphabet declination.  An alphabet could borrow frm varios generations in the progression or various places in the declination.-Ernie Moore Jr.

top of ninth page of notes on alphabet declination A B Blue-Bird E M J

Diving dolphin; horse face constitute the top of page nine of notes on alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ. Looking at horse nostrils and teeth. For the letter “E” I start to stay on the nose bridge and eye from profile. I consider representing the English “D” with a cursive “J” blending of uppercase and lower case.  That degrades to a number four like character.  Finally for the moment shown, the lowercase “j” opens to a loose “2”like thing.-Ernie Moore Jr.

alphyabet declination A B Blue Bird bottom page eight E M J

This photodigital Image Capture of notes of alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ, bottom of the eighth page looks at “D.” Revisits “C.”  And takes a lengthy look at “D.”  Also, over two days I assign value to the AB subjects–giving each subject imagery a section or small grouping of the English alphabet, with which to transpose-ish.-Ernie Moore Jr.

“D” icon degrade to resembling a four which would be fine, as “D” is the fourth letter of the English alphabet(AB).-Ernie Moore Jr.

notes on alphabet declination AB Blue Bird top of eighth page E M J

This photodigital Image Capture of notes of an alphabet declination–AB Blue Bird EMJ.  These icons are dolphin based.  Showing “B,” “C,” and “D.”  When one looks at these (alphabet declinations) one should look for a progression in shortening.  Shorter amounts of ink.  Shortening of strokes.  And although some later icons have longer strokes the thought was that they save one from lengthier writing by staying connected to the paper.  I’m trying to keep it from being a senseless scribble.  Yet a sensible repeatable scribble that is a progression from a longer mark, that’s reasonable.-Ernie Moore Jr.

“B” started in the last page (7).  It was a dolphin leaping out of the water.  “C” was “B” with a second dolphin leaping. Three dolphins would be a bit much.  For “D I explore more of a full bodied dolphin.  Scaled down as per my skill level at drawing. [Note: I could try and try until I could draw a more complete dolphin, but the idea is finish the project.  I can work at an icon for a bit, but too much investment is a waste of Life.  I am to cut off trying for perfection after some effort has been put into it.-Ernie Moore Jr.

“D,” turns into the dolphin diving.  The tail is wavy las the water.  My relating a dolphins relationship with water almost as though it’s an aspect of water.  Some of these begin to resemble established written characters.  I’m mostly noting Chinese and Russian.-Ernie Moore Jr.

This photodigital Image Capture revisits “a” and continues onto “B” as far as switch-out icons for the standard Letters of the English alphabet.-Ernie Moore Jr.

photodigital of alphabet declination AB Blue Bird bottom of page five E M J

This photodigital Image Capture is of the bottom of page five of alphabet declination notes AB Blue Bird.  I go to the horses ear.  I use the eye as a relative marker or reference marker.  Two distinct features in the first generation–exactly an ear and exactly the top curve of an eye.  As generations use this print format there might be a tendency to join the two distinct parts.  It can happen in different ways if it was standardized.  With alphabet declination-the final product should be a likely de-evolution from pictograph.  Here I’m running through branches of variations.  This is atypical.  I am in essence going for a end alphabet to present, Yet, I am looking to have my usual thing of the progression from pictograph to cursive fast script that would come after generations of use.-Ernie Moore Jr.

The ear looses half so one needn’t back track yet one smooth stroke to the eyelid.  I also explore horizontal layout verses a more realistic.  Loops are freer-faster than a point that has to be traced back down.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Next on the page is dolphin form.  I use a wavy line as a base line of relevance for water.  Expressing the concept of dolphin leaping out of the water I use a curve to represent the body and try a dorsal fin. later I ad a pectoral fin to add to its looking like a dolphin.  Then dolphin going under water.-Ernie Moore Jr.

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
