Since i haven't posted in a while

In my ongoing quest to perfect Kuraw script, i've come up with a variant
that's very calligraphic and can be done with a common chisel tip nib pen.
The syle is reminiscent of Siddham script, and i call it a "thorn" script
because of all the points that the characters have.

Many of the characters are unrecognizeable to their common handwritten
forms. It's very stylized, almost like Blackletter calligraphy is in
writing the Latin Script.

Something that happened with this style that the other styles don't have,
is that most of the letters developed "heads" sort of like Devanagari. And
like devanagari, the head is written last (covers up uneven stems).

Once i can get back to school after the 3rd, i'll scan a copy for you all
to view.
