Thank ye! And no problem at all. I'm really impressed with the research and the artistry that went into making your extremely useful fonts. I tried to make a font myself, recently, but it didn't work out so well. I drew each of the letters in photoshop and then couldn't figure out how to convert it into a font. >.< So yeah, I now know that making a font isn't all cake and rainbows.

Well, considering you have to have a program FOR making fonts, that's where part of the trouble is. But it's still a lot of work. If you have a font program that you can import images, you're either lucky or paid for it (likely both really) and even then, it's not going to import even block letter designs right, you'll still have to adjust them and fix them to work as font vector. Which, isn't totally different than vector in photoshop or illustrator, but they do have their own sort of methods. I wouldn't call font creation hard, per se, but tedious and time consuming by far.


Fonts aside though, I can tell this took you a while to design and get all the symbols laid out right. It really is lovely. The colours for example are stunning. :3

I wonder where your inspiration came from on the design of the other three sage symbols (I presume they are wind, earth and possibly time)?

You presume correctly. :) Time (between Spirit and Water) is the symbol found on the front of the Clock Tower in Majora's Mask. Earth (between Light and Fire) is a symbol found all over statues in Wind Waker's Earth Temple. Wind (between Shadow and Forest) is a symbol found on the Wind God's Monument in The Wind Waker and a few other places that I've forgotten about.

Hahaha! Not too far off. It's actually kind of the key to alkahest.
