Lost Tokiponian Codex by LaughtonMcCry Lost Tokiponian Codex by LaughtonMcCry
hi, long time no see hum!?
okay. here is a small page of a Mayan codexlike version of the Gilgamesh Epic in tokiponian language and glyphs, that i was tinkering around with.

The picture shows (as the text says) The ancient city of Uruk, of which Gilgamesh was the King.

if you dont know what Toki Pona is, its this: a constructed artificial language that consists of only around 120 words and a nice simple grammar ;]

for more info about it :
toki pona? [link]
tis script? [link]
the text? [link]

I do like the look of it, but as conlangs go, I steer clear of minimalism. :P

Well, I think minimalism has a lot to do with art. since a good drawing is always a reduction to the most important aspects.
But you may go as you prefere :]

True enough; it's ametter of taste. As with my image art, my conlangs are intended to seem as real as possible. :)

Beautifully done! I heard about Toki Pona on the Conlangery podcast, and I thought the idea of a verbless language was novel but strange, but now that I've seen its glyphs, I'm a lot more interested.

Lojban uses the Latin alphabet, but there are proposals for other scripts.

i thought about a nice adaption of such a thing for Brume.
I mean a unique writing system and a basic grammar and vocbulary to make nice temple inscriptions in Brumian language ^^

That would be so cool!
I do a lot of symbology with meaningless lines.
How cool would that be if the designs had meaning!:)

yeah, i thought about something very simmilar to this. A logosyyllabic writing. This would work somehow like japanese with a mixture of loggraphic and syllabic symbols and a blocky-glyhic look simmilar to this pice.

The hard part wouldnt be the writing, but the fitting language ^^

I'd love to see a short film of your world.
The dialogue would all be in your language but you would explain the story with the images.

hehehe, like this cool film by Mel Gibson? about the mayan civilisation (Apocalyptico) 8D It was dialoged completely in myan language. I liked this film very much and fond it both, entertaining and impressing :]

Yeah, that movie was so cool! I think the unknown language gave it a really nice alien feel. Like you were really looking into another world.
