Yes, I would like to know more about this one as well, it looks very good, very syriac-inspired. I assume it's an alphabet, because you're marking vowels, but sometimes I lose track of them. Is it because of ligatures, or is there something else going on?
Also can you share the process of making it into a font? I should do that with my conlangs too.
I specifically avoided looking at any ancient middle-eastern scripts when designing it, and just focused on designing a smooth cursive version of the script (it's based on a non cursive script of mine). Different people see different inspirations in it, so I feel like I just got a general feel without copying any one script to much.
It is an LTR alphabet, but what may be tripping you up is that the letter for a is slightly altered in the ligature with b in the sample above, the i becomes a subscript after ḅ, and also because certain vowels are spelled with digraphs (ĭ in this sample is spelled ux).
The font was a learning experience, as making it was how I learned how to do it, so there's a lot of abandoned and inefficient coding in the font.
