While I love this for random sigil generations. I would love to see this updated to be used with proper sigil generation. something that allows you to put the intent in then shows the breakdown and then display choices of different sigils that could be made with the intent. this would help many neopagans and Wiccans who are new to sigiles as well as others.   If you dont know how sigils are made in the witchy world i'm happy to send you a basic guide.

Hi there! I didn't make this, however I'm very interested in sigil creation. Is it possible for you to send me that basic guide you were talking about? Thank you! :)

Hi there! I didn't write this, however i believe i can be of help.

First of all, i am not a witchcraft practitioner so i wont claim to represent them, their opinions or knowledge, however i did investigate about sigils out of curiosity/worldbuilding reasons.

As far as i know neopaganism is inspired by a lot of cultures so looking for staves/runes/sigilla in general may lead you to the meaning behind a few symbols.

There are a few methods of sigil creation but most of them have what's called an intent. Intent is in very simple words the desire that lead you to create a sigil. A few notable methods are using a pattern such as a magic square or witch circle to create a path, combining symbols (what this gen does) and chaos magic where you would use a fountain pen or similar writting device where the resulting symbol isn't really methodic and the "style" matters as it's a result of your intent.

As for this generator i could identify a few notable symbols:

  • Curves and patterns from the zodiac and the lesser key of solomon
  • The symbols for planets and greek gods usually related to alchemy
  • a circle with a cross inside (usually means earth from what i could gather)
  • a circle with a * inside (wheel of time)
  • Quarter moons, used to represent lunar phases when inside a circle but also to represent the horned god or a trinity godess (usually mother crane and maiden)
  • Cross with arrows (means travel)
  • * with arrows means chaos
  • Circle with dot inside (peace)
  • Triforce (From zelda, in that game it stands for the trinity of courage, wisdom and power)
  • The number 2
  • a lightning like sign (either harry potter or Eihwaz or Sowulo rune)
  • Elemental symbols from alchemy

The way i would implement this into a program is probably adding an option to force exclusion/inclusion from symbols and grouping symbols into themes and motiffs that can overlap, such as nature, change, etc. that way you choose one or more themes and the sigil is composed from symbols in that category

feel free to message me

Very nice tool for random sigils.

(+2)

I think there could be a downloadable version, or just an addition to the browser version, where you can edit the sigil yourself and choose what symbols to combine, where and whatnot.

Great generator tho, I love. Definitely going to use it for some stuff, and of course I'll credit.

managed to get the "female" symbol. pretty cool generator.

(+1)

This game OBSOLUTELY amazing!!!!

For what it is worth, where I'm from "sigils" is what people say, regardless of anything else.

Hey!
Finally managed to sit down and do some testing.
LOVING this one! 

Really feel the style of Sigils from The Lesser Key of Solomon and some other old alchemical books. 
Pretty great for a quick grag of a symbol,  or as i do, take some, and re-edit them on photoshop with my digital tablet, to give a more "Handwritten" feel.
Pretty good generator!

(+1)

Thanks! Maybe I will implement "handwritten" style as an option.

(+4)

he happy

How am I just now getting a notification for this?

Thank you for making this. It’s unbelievably helpful.

Any chance you could explain how you did this generator (like you did in this tuto) ? Awesome work !

Thanks! I'll probably write a post about a bit later.

(+1)

I really wish I was better at programing, love your work! https://www.funvideogames.biz/2021/09/sigil-generator.html

Outstanding!

I got Harry potter

Yet another outstanding project by Watabou.

Awesome, is there a way to export it with the colors I have chosen?

Right-click a sigil and choose "Export as PNG" or "Export as SVG".

(+1)

For whatever reason, it does not export the background color. At least not with PNG.

This is intended behavior:

...As PNG sigils are exported on transparent background without glow. (post)

That's what people were asking for and it makes sense - it's very easy to add solid background if you have a transparent image, but much harder to remove it. I could add a solid background as an option, but it seems to be an overkill for such small application.

I figured it out, it is awesome.

Great ! Almost perfect at first try.

Inferno style may be a little too thick to recognize some minor details. I'd love a "regal" style gold (embossed?) on blue/purple.

Thanks!

You can adjust the thickness of strokes in that dialog as well as create your own own style and save it if needed.

(+1)

Wonderful as always!  :D

Will saving the json files do anything useful

(+1)

Really cool! Although i would wish for some option to prevent generation of the exact same sigils. And also maybe custom grid size (NxN sigils)

(+1)

awesome !!!

(+4)

Lovely stuff. Great already, but my suggestion would be to chosse a sigil style as well (linear, round, random, etc.), however the randomness helps with creativity, so take that as you will.

(+2)

I agree. I tend to favor straight lines and dots over curves for the style I want.

(+1)

Excellent !

(+1)

Great job! Thank you

(+1)

Just what I needed, you are great

(+1)

Very excited for the next update.

(+1)

cool as always

(+3)

Yessssss thank you watabou!

(+4)

needs a nonkeyboardtouch interface 

(+1)

Agreed. Though there's a right-click context menu, I can't get it to work on my touch-exclusive device 

(+4)

I love this!

(+5)

This is super neat!! I love the variety

(+4)

This is wonderful! But please provide the option to export as transparent background high res PNGs! We beg you!

(+4)

This is SO good! I can definitely see using this in upcoming projects. Is there a way to export the sigils that I'm missing? Would love to get them as transparent background PNGs.

(+4)

great job!

(+4)

Love this but please give it a button to access the context menu so it can be used on mobile too 🙏

(+2)

cuuuuute!

(+2)

I love this! I can't wait to use this for my projects!

(+2)

I have two hobbies: D&D and astrology. This will help me mix them together. 🥰

(+4)

For this, I really want to be able to export the individual sigils as SVG ...

(+2)

Same! So Cool!
