    My mom’s aunt can do AMAZING calligraphy and does it for everything. I haven’t seen a lot of things she’s written that doesn’t have that calligraphy style. She doesn’t do a whole lot of writing, but all of her cards and things she does write down look amazing! I’ve got a cheap calligraphy set for Christmas a couple of years ago, but I’ve never really mastered it. I wish I could put a picture of her writing in this USclip comment lol.

    Keep the nib on the paper for the whole letter...tail and all...and dont move the nib for angle...by continuing the same angle of the nib you get the more fancier looking strokes 😉😀

    Keep on practice. Dont put the nib into the ink bottle. You must be put the ink in the nib with a brush. This avoid that fall and spread the ink over the paper when you begin to make the first traces... Your progress are amazing, but you need more practice dude. Jajaja! (i´m a calligrapher...)

    Hi! I’ve been doing calligraphy for 2 years now, it’s really difficult to do it if you don’t have any experience. So I suggest that you start of with the shading technique where you practice the calligraphy style with a pen first and then shade it, shading means making its lines thicker as you go.
    After that you could practice with highlighters since its tip is quite similar to a calligraphy pen. Search for some words that is written in calligraphy and then copy it.

    Ah... this brings back memories of when I was in fifth grade. We did calligraphy in arts class and learned a basic set of Calligraphy letters. The assignment then was to write with that script a text of our choosing on an A3 paper plus selfdesigned Initial and framing.
    I still have it I think... somewhere.

    The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. - If you use "jumped" means you don't use an "S" defeating the purpose of the phrase. Otherwise, this is quite cool.
