Sigilcraft: Creating A Simple Sigil

by , under Demystification

Creating a simple sigil.

I get a lot of questions about my process for creating sigils. I actually use a variety of methods, but the “strike the vowels and mix the other letters up” approach is still a favorite. Here, you can see the entire process happen on a single page, with the original text at upper right.

Down a bit, and you can see me pairing off consonants to combine. To the left of that, you see the first merged symbols. From there, I’m playing around with a few ideas, and folding in the idea of an “eye” – a classic occult symbol, and worthy of evoking here – as the first draft comes together.

As you can see, the process isn’t exactly complex. Anyone can do this, so long as they have a pencil, paper, and a willingness to scribble.
