If you do see any problems let me know and i can adjust it :)
Again i apologies and thank you all for being patient :)


A few things I noticed about the above symbol:

The small circle embedded in the rings around the rim a around the 5 'o clock mark: There should be a gap between the outside of the embedded circle and the innermost ring of the overall design.  The ring within this small circle should probably be a little larger, and a little thicker.

The small circle above the slanted line that's straddling the innermost ring of the overall design, it looks like it might need shifting a little bit so that the middle of the small circle would be bisected by the larger ring.


Brilliant! Thank you Kingpin I've adjusted the design and hopefully it matches better, let me know if there is anything else;

I'm going to make another couple of symbols again soon :)

Thanks Kingpin

I've managed to get another Symbol done, hopefully there shouldn't be much wrong with it. But again if there are any issues with it just let me know and i can adjust it, ASAP.

I think, if you enlarge all of the items within the thick circle (including the circle itself) just a little bit, reducing the gap between the thick circle and thicker hexagon, then you're onto a winner. :)

Thanks again Kingpin,
I've done the adjustments you suggested. Hows this? I have done another symbol with the circles slightly thicker than this but i think it looks too much.

Huh, I hadn't actually noticed that line until you'd thickened it...

However when I was talking about the thick circle, I meant enlarging all of the elements bar the hexagons a little bit.  Everything contained within the outmost circle (and that circle) looked fine, just that the gap between the smallest hexagon and largest circle might need tightening a little.

Actually, looking at that thick outermost circle, and the gap between it and the hexagon, and the gap between the thick circle and the thin circle in relation to the gap between the thin circle and the next "crescented" circle, I think all that's needed is to stretch that thick circle a bit. The gaps between the thick circle and the next two inner ones are about the same, so enlarging just the thick circle would even those gaps, and bring the thick circle closer to the hexagon. Everything else inside that thick circle looks about right with the almost-head-on image from the whirligig. (I hope that made sense.)

Here we go the updated symbol, thanks Kingpin and Galacticprobe your help is much appreciated :)
i've tightened up the thickest ring with the thickest hexagon and centralised the 2 rings and there elements so the gaps are the same.

If there were a thumbs up emoticon, I'd be using it. :)

I agree with Kingpin. This one's nailed down! Great work, the doctor who2! It's very much appreciated and will be a great addition for the reference section when completed.

Just curious, but in what order are you working on these: easiest to hardest; vice-versa; or in "numerical" order, as in starting with one symbol and then doing the next symbol to its right - or left - and working your way around the whirligig?

Thanks Guys!  :D

When i made the first batch i originally went virtually in order from left to right, but gradually got harder as the reference material started to disappear till only on very bad quality image. But now i'm going for the easiest to hardest, from again reference material quality, best first and then onto the others. When i add the final designs they will be put into order :)
By the way ill be adding the next symbol soon, just need to check it through :)

Here we go another symbol. This one took me a little while couldn't get the line thickness right for the pointy hexagon but i think its there. Again as always please let me know of any problems :)

I think temporal engineer is right, looking at this one again. That point of the filled-in "circlet" that temporal is highlighting shouldn't be touching that arc; it should be "hovering" above, and pointing to the right corner of the "flat" where the "dip" between the two other arcs is (see yellow arrow):

(I guess it pays - or not ;) - to have several dozen eyes looking things like this over!)

It think the area I've shaded green could do with making bigger by nudging the filled symbol up a bit:

Keep up the good... no brilliant... work!

Brilliant thanks temporal engineer and galacticprobe.
I've adjusted the design.
It certainly pays to have as many eyes as possible to look these over, i always miss stuff that other people point out. Which is good as we can make sure these symbols are correct. Better to have a perfect set of symbols than an alright set :)

Here is the updated design;
