I did it in 2 days. As a former teacher of calligraphy, I wanted it to look
as though the characters were written with a pen, but this is not as
practicable as I thought, as the 'thins' don't show up so well on screen! So
the newer version I'm working on at the moment has less difference between
the thick and thin lines. I intend to put a chart of all the Omeina
characters online. There are about 80 separate characters in the syllabary,
including diacritics for geminate consonants, sonant affection and so on.
