Myst Alphabet by Artoveli Myst Alphabet by Artoveli
This thing is ridiculously huge.

Recently the ~Myst-fanclub hosted a contest for an illuminated Myst alphabet. In usual form, I decided to bite off a bit more than I could comfortably chew, and did the entire alphabet. Beyond that, I went all Edward Lear on it and wrote little poems for each word! What was I thinking???:noes:

I totally missed the deadline for the contest. Still, I'm happy that I pressed on to the end. Once I got into it this was a really fun project to work on!:XD:

(D) - I'm not the first one to do the D'ni/duck-knee joke, but I can't find the original picture. If anyone knows where it is, please tell me!

(K) - Little Aitrus is reading a book on "digging machines," in case you can't tell what it says.:)

(O) - For those of you who don't know, this is from an actual easter egg in Riven!

(Q) - The word "quintevigesimal" refers to a base-25 numbering system. Thank you MystLore.com, I never would have found a Q word without you!

Aw, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :aww:

Oh, you never saw it?  The easter eggs in Riven are lots of fun!  There are 5 of them, of course. ;p  You've got to solve five riddles that tell you what to do in order to unlock them.  Let me see if I can dig them up... cho.cyan.com/arachnid/rivenegg…
