If I give you an apple by Itti If I give you an apple by Itti
Christmas present for my dad. I knew he would like this quote.

More of my calligraphy here.

This is really pretty! I think you've done really well with the writing here; I especially love the word "idea", and the way you've coloured it. It really stands out from the rest!
However, I think you could be a little more careful with your slanting; for instance, the word apple is written noticeably different each time. Try practicing some letters that you may struggle on over and over, it should help train your hand a little more!
Hope I helped!

You are definitely right about this. I think I was getting frustrated because it's such a long quote. Thanks for the comment though :D

Yes, and being inspired by each others work to go off on tangents.

That's a pretty awesome quote! Also: how do you keep the writing so straight? It's impressively even.

Usually I either make thick black lines on another piece of paper and put it underneath to show through (this doesn't work when I'm using higher-quality paper to write on, because it's less see-through) or I make faint pencil guidelines on the piece itself. But because I draw a baseline, a line for the top of the "middle" bit, a line for the ascenders and a line for the descenders for each row in the piece sometimes I get put off doing more calligraphy pieces because I can't face the thought of measuring out and ruling more lines!

The trouble comes really when I have to redo the piece because I've made a mistake. Then I have to start drawing lines all over again :noes:

. . . wow that's a lot of lines. Great results, though.
