This photodigital Image Capture of the top of the 12th page of notes of an alphabet declination–AB Blue Bird EMJ.  Horse imagery would be used for multiple letters.  After having studied the head of a horse for icons, I’m continuing my study of the body.  I make a note that I need to understand the leg anatomy better to study the horse.  I decide to work on other icon structures.  I did touch on dolphins.-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 of notes on alphabet declination for AB Blue Bird EMJ top of the sixth page.  Here we can see the changes to letters.  Writing them and writing them.  Getting tired of taking so long there would lose strokes or have strokes blended.  Writing fast can mean less to write or more compact shapes.  Sharp is a quick whip gesture.-Ernie Moore Jr.

First letter is a horse ear.  I decide the eye helps define the triangle as an ear.  That’s pretty solid to me so I go on to “B” icon or second letter.  Dolphin shape resembles ocean wave.  Wave becomes dolphin out of the water.  Now set the style of the water.  For this letter/icon this is what I think would change with use.  Curve loses the waves and straightens.  Even the dolphin can lose its curve for the more direct shorter stroke.  And we generations later do not see the shapes as more than marks with no meaning except assigned valued.-Ernie Moore Jr.

For me one style of making an alphabet is grouping similar icons for sections of alphabet.  I’m comfortably set on “B” and “C” from one dolphin leaping to a dolphin leaping over the leaping dolphin.  And working on my solid for the design of a dolphin diving to get “D.”-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

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.
