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.

photodigital of notes for alphabet declintion AB Blue Bird E M J

This photodigital Image Capture is the top of page seven of my alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ.  Here can be seen a declination from elaborate to minimal which like talking degrades-minimizing shortening-shaving; so goes writing. We’ve halted our writing by using type and machines to print.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Declination of this icon for “A” connects the ear to the eyelid. then loses the eyelid.  Then the connection straightens, then shortens.  Then there’s no connection and just the ear.  Then the ear shortens several times and loses the other side of the ear.-Ernie Moore Jr.

This shows me going on to “B,” dolphin leaping out of water.  Curves straighten.  The angle changes–becomes more acute.-Ernie Moore Jr.

After working on dolphin diving I go to Horse ear blending with eyelid for the letter “A.”-Ernie Moore Jr.

The marks should be repeatable–consistent.-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.
