I almost have all the symbols to construct a stella like this.

I accept any suggestions to improve it.Japf (talk) 14:51, 9 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Japf. This has potential, and thanks. Tho' I still feel those squared-off glyphs are a little too similar to to those created elsewhere, as has been mentioned before. I think you are on the right track though.
One thing before you go too far in development- the glyph imgs would be best in SVG format, that way they can be scaled to other sizes (for eg to reduce so they can fit inline) without loss of clarity; this would be more flexible. Also, each glyph's img boundary should have the same native h x w proportions, including whitespace if necessary -- that way when they do get resized they will still align when stacked or arranged vertically. Or rather, you'd have perhaps two img boundary proportions- one for "main-size" glyphs and another for 'affix-type' glyphs (incl. numbers).--cjllw ʘ TALK 04:06, 19 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Cjll
I made these drawings in Paint from Windows, so I couldn't save them in svg format. I made the drawings quite large, so we can enlarge them with no problem. Unfourtunatly I haven't realised that they couldn't get smaller than about 30 px, since the lines become to thin. I can standardize the main-size glyphs h x w proportions, but the numbers and ISIG sign it's more difficult. In respect to the numbers, only the vertical versions of 0 to 5 exist, the other numbers are automatically composed by the template Template:Vertical Maya. I can improve it to afford the spaces properly. The ISIG sign is combination of several glyphs, so they where made with those proportions to fit well with the rest of the stella.Japf (talk) 10:29, 19 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since there is the probabililty of problems with copyright, I will redraw the glyphs copying by the Dresden Codex, which doesn't have these problems.Japf (talk) 17:13, 20 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello. This drawing is directly based on a glyph present in the Dresden Codex. If it is similar to something recent it should be coincidence. Therefore no Copyright problems with it.Do you think I may proceed with the others?Japf (talk) 22:27, 21 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Japf, sorry for the lengthy delays, have been caught up. If these are your drawings based on Dresden glyphs then yes I'd say any CV concerns wld be mollified. --cjllw ʘ TALK 10:08, 15 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So, I will continue.Japf (talk) 21:26, 15 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The stella is now operational. Plese give your opinion.Japf (talk) 21:00, 11 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
