    creating special characters in a font

    Hello all for the last 2 months I've been in the process of creating my first font. I started by sketching out all my letters, punctuation and numbers in an art program called artrage. Then I exported my artrage file to illustrator and I've spent most of the last 2 months tweaking,fixing and perfecting every character. I've had many feelings of doubt and uncertainty throughout this whole process, but the one part I feel totally uncertain about is creating special characters. (ligatures, uncommon symbols, and everything past the basic alphabet. I don't even know where to begin. I know this part isn't necessary for a beginner, but I want my first font to be successful and possibly have selling potential, so I'm willing to do what it takes. My biggest questions are: there are thousands of symbols/special characters-Which ones should I focus on/which ones can I leave out? Do I have to create each of these individiually just as I did with the other characters? Is there a special feature or tool that makes this part easier? Please help and bare with my noobish questions as I am new to the specifics of font design Thanks everyone

    Why the Wingdings font exists

    “As a means of writing sentences, Wingdings fails — but that was never its purpose. It was created to be used as a unique tool for the pre-internet era. It was akin to emojis, but with even more utility.” There also is a feature article on the subject.
