Baybayin Modern Brush Font by Nordenx Baybayin Modern Brush Font by Nordenx
The Script

Baybayin script is an ancient form of writing by native islanders and tribes in the South East Asian archipelago we now know as the Philippines.

The Font

Download it here in DA: www.deviantart.com/download/14…

I created true type fonts (TTF) I called "Baybayin Modern" to use in modern art. The fonts are stylized modern composite of many examples from the past but the style is based primarily on my calligraphy work and handwriting. These fonts should not be considered as historically accurate examples of the Baybayin. The font is calligraphic & artistic representations and the characters’ shapes, sizes and weights have been made uniform in order to present a neat and elegant printed appearance.

The zip file contains the TTF file and documentation on how to use it. If used in your artwork, please include a credit and/or link back to either the blog (nordenx.blogspot.com/) or my DA page.

The Style (Brush) 

This is actually done back in 2007 when I had access to a Bamboo tablet. I was practicing brush strokes and came up with these fonts.

The Sample

The script rendered in baybayin brush font reads: 

"Gaano man ang tibay ng piling abaka, ay wala ring lakas kapag nagiisa. Tingnan mo naman ang walis tingting, matibay sapagka't magkabigkis" 

Translation:
"No matter how strong the best hemp may be, a single strand isn’t strong enough. Look at the broom made of small sticks, it is sturdy because it is tightly bound."  

For more info on the new features included in this font set, please read the rich text format (.rtf) file that is included in the zip.

Gaano man ang tibay ng piling abaka, ay wala ring lakas kapag nagiisa. Tingnan mo naman ang tingting, matibay palibhasa'y magkabigkis. :)

I love this font, but it stopped working after many years of working pretty well. Yes, this is the updated version.

Thanks for reporting the errors. I don't have a Mac to test these fonts but I am in the process of updating most of them, cleaning them up and fixing duplication errors.

I hope it isn't my computer (I run on an iMac). I totally love these fonts and actually just recently found out about this ancient script. I have downloaded all your fonts but for some reason, only the Mondern Script and Mondern Sinta are the two that show up on my word processing software (Pages). When I go through the fonts in Font Book, the other fonts have error messages such as "duplicate fonts" and "name table structure". Any suggestions?

Download and install the font then type this for modern:

bgmn+ ako ay+ lumlkd+ s libis+ nN+ kmtyn+ ,

...type this for traditional:

bgm aku a lumlk s libi n kmty ,

BTW, why not the complete passage? "Bagaman ako'y lumalakad sa libis ng lilim ng kamatayan, wala akong katatakutang kasamaan; sapagka't ikaw ay sumasa akin."

I tried RPGM way back in 2001, I guess I have to re-visit it again and check it out.

Thanks for the tip. :)

you may wanna try the latest RPG Maker (VX)

...it has come a long way since the late-90s, its features can be "exploited" to do all sorts of tricks now

It depends on what game engine I'll be using I guess. I'm good with either but a sprite based game would be a lot easier to manage (and cheaper to develop).

would you really want it to be a big 3D thing or would you settle for a more humble sprite-based 16-bit type of thing?

The video game? Still on hold, that one requires a lot of funding and support to get off the ground (I realize that now). I don't plan to give up on that, but first thing's first - I need to find ways to support it. Graphics Design and my font & typography is what I'm good at, I need to find ways to profit from it. ;)
