    Calligraphy

    Postby SadisticCynic » 29 Jun 2010 14:52

    Okay, so I started doing some calligraphy again for fun, and I wanted to share some of it so here goes:

    Image


    Just want to point out that the little detail at the top left of the 'J' is an Eye of the Ibad (is that correct or is Ibad plural? :think: ). It (unfortunately) didn't come out as brightly as I'd hoped.

    Anyway, enjoy!

    Cool! I used to do calligraphy when I was a kid. Loved it.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I had no idea so many people did calligraphy as well. That's pretty cool.

    Will probably post a couple more later, I just did a Lord of the Rings one I quite like.

    I've never tried it before. I have been tempted to try and learn Arabic (as a language) before, so maybe if I ever start that...

    I saw it, but felt like giving the kid a break. We can always make fun of him at the clubhouse. :D

    Here's the LOTR one: One Ring

    The Copperplate Italics didn't come out quite as elegantly as I would like but I like the Elvish script; makes me wish I could learn Elvish.

    I'll post any of these as links now instead of filling up the thread with large images.

    Are you using pencil lines or something under the paper to make the letters line up? It might be the pic, but it looks like something like that might help.

    Loving the letters though. This is the original typography :)

    Here's another one: Dirge For November

    Started off as a late night/early morning insomnia cure (not that its boring, just takes concentration), which I hope explains the complete lack of adherence to a horizontal, but then I began to like it.
