Thank you for the compliment; however, none of those are Chinese (except in the top image, where a few Chinese characters are shown). The scripts are, from top down, "a style of paper-charm talismanic writing used by a certain Japanese spiritual sect", "one of the hieroglyphic writings which belongs to a minority group in China", "the Khitan writing".

Aah ok.

Are there any more images of the 2 scripts used by China and Japan ( the other 2 not Khitan )? I'd like to learn more about them and possibly see more of the scripts.

Did you copy them from somewhere or did you somehow learn them?

There are more documents of the languages (and hence, scripts) which you refer but, I am not motivated yet to take pictures of them (my photobucket space is limited and, too many documents in total).

THOSE are my own hand-writings and studies made into a series of manual-scripts, I believe I am entitled to credits on them.

That is beautiful.

I have no idea how people do these type of things.

Never seen Chinese writings like that :shock:
Some look like Jiaguwen but some have the shape of Seal. (?)
Can you recognise this character?
Nope, it's not shāng. It is a 囧 with a hat which 囧ed its chin off!

基本上是甲骨文沒錯,但是許多字有經過變體。 這是道派所傳的《符印字》,今日已經大多不用了,因此不常見。

It is technically jiaguwen but, many characters have been altered in form. This is the "talismanic writing system" passed down by the taoistic mages. Since this form of writing has died-out in the recent days, it is not popular in the public circles and media.
