Suggestions for creating scripts for existing languages

Postby thenoobhunter24 » 2018-03-14, 16:12

I want to make some scripts for languages that aren't so known (IE native american languages or African languages) and only have Latin as a script and would probably be more suited with their own script. However the problem is I have no idea where to start with how to design the shapes of the glyphs.

What's your motivation for doing this?

In general, I'm against creating new scripts for minor languages. These typically have enough barriers to learning and use already without being saddled with yet another.

Oh nothing practical. Purely for entertainment and artistic purposes.
